Movie: I Me Aur Main

Director: Kapil Sharma

Cast: John Abraham, Chitrangda Singh, Prachi Desai, Raima Sen, Mini Mathur

Jagran Rating: Disappointing

Story Line: Another cliché story. The movie is an example of classic stereotype based on a commitment-phobic guy. The story revolves around Mr commitment-phobic Ishaan Sabharwal (John Abraham) -  a charismatic, good-looking music producer from Mumbai.

Pampered beyond means by his doting mother (Zarine Wahab) and protected by his elder sister Shivani (Mini Mathur), he grows up to be a‘man-child’ and self-obsessed. He lives with his long-term girlfriend Anushka (Chitrangada Singh) but is too self-absorbed to notice her love for him. Tired of being taken for granted she throws him out of her house.  It is then, Ishaan’s new neighbour Gauri (Prachi Desai) comes into his life and he begins to love here. Surrounded by women, here's the man oscillating between two women, while also keeping affectionate sister and mother busy trying to sort out his messes.

Thumbs Up: It’s an inoffensive, sweet, tender and cute rom-com about a selfish jerk and the two lovely ladies who come into his life. With an endearing threesome of principal actors who aren't afraid to play flawed, this film should have left us floored. Instead it just leaves us pleasantly underwhelmed.

It is interesting to see John play a complete jerk, he works hard to give character to his amoral character. Chitrangda smoulders with her bridled sex appeal exuding oomph without letting any of it spill over.

Prachi literally plays the girlnext door with a neighbourly warmth that wraps around John like a cosy shawl in winter.

Thumbs Down: Screenplay and execution by the debutant director Kapil Sharma makes the film a pain to watch. A story which is dangerously thin ice for a desi rom-com to tread on. The principal characters do not aspire to any higher ground of existence beyond what they are allotted by writers. Things unfold as you wonder what the characters actually do.

This could have been much better but debutant director efforts fail to impress, watch at your own risk.
