Hamari Adhuri Kahani Review: Story, Script Analysis
Hamari Adhuri Kahani is a film about a married woman Vasudha Prasad (Vidya Balan) who is in love with a rich man Aarav Ruparel (Emraan hashmi). Her husband Hari (Rajukumar Rao) has been missing for the last five years and the police thinks that he has joined a terrorist group. There’s also a back story about how she was married off to Hari against her will by her family and forced to tattoo her husband’s name on her arm.
So this tug-of-war of emotions continues for a while until Aarav confesses that he is in love with her at beautiful Abu Dhabi desert. But to his disappointment, Vasudha tearfully rejects it, saying she’s bound to her husband, and tradition, pointing to her mangalsutra. But ironically, she’s forgotten it in her hotel room. She runs, in slow motion, knocking everything over in the process. Though In the second half film picks up pace but gradually it turns into a women’s empowerment drama rather than a romantic one. Will Vasudha surrender to Aarav’s infinte love? Or will she just stick to her marriage? Watch the film to find out.
Hamari Adhuri Kahani Review: Direction, Editing, Screenplay
Mohit Suri is a very talented director who knows how to represent emotions on-screen. But this time he has failed miserably. The film is not engaging at all. Screenplay is very mediocre and even most emotional scenes turn out to be unintentionally hilarious. It seems that you are watching a Star Plus drama serial. There are many scenes in the movie which actually make no sense. The idiotic looking dialogues makes it even worse.
Cinematography of the film is excellent which makes it watchable. Music is very good having some melodious songs like Hamari Adhuri Kahani, Humnava and Hassi. Background score is decent.
Hamari Adhuri Kahani Review: Star Performances
Emraan Hashmi gives his heart and soul to the film and does a reasonable job. But the problem is he is very confused about his character.
Vidya Balan is one of the finest actress in Bollywood but she has been wasted in HAK. She has been continuously crying in the film to show all his pains, hurts and fears in just one second.
Rajkumar Rao shines as a psycho husband. He is grumpy, suspicious and violent.
♦ Rajkumar Rao
♦ Emraan-Vidya Chemistry
♦ Rushed Climax
♦ Over Drama
♦ Slow Pace
♦ So Many Loopholes
♦ Poor Screenplay
Hamari Adhuri Kahani Review: Last Word
Hamari Adhuri Kahani could have been a much better film. There was so much potential in the story line as the concept of abusive marriage is a huge problem in India. It is good that they have addressed this problem in the film. But it could have been better if they did it with out Vidya’s melo drama.
And yes we have to say that It’s not an incomplete love story. It’s badly told story.
