Movie: Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya

Director: Mandeep Kumar

Cast: Riteish Deshmukh, Genelia Deshmukh, Tinnu Anand

Jagran Rating: (Average)     

Story line: Whoever said that real life couple lacks onscreen chemistry must watch Ritesh-Genelia starrer 'Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya’. It is a desi romantic comedy featuring Riteish and Genelia together for the first time after their recent wedding.

The story of the movie revolves around chirpy Mini, (Genelia) daughter of a rich Canadian businessman Bhatti (Tinu Anand) and Virun(Ritesh). Viren (Riteish Deshmukh) works for Bhatti but nobody cares about his potential and talent. While Bhatti is all set to marry of her daughter Mini, to a rich brat, the later does not at all want to tie the knot.

To escape an undesired wedlock, Mini gets herself kidnapped by the hands of Viren. Confused Viren turns victim of the situation and has no option but to carry forward with Mini's plans. As expected, they fall in love but the staged kidnapping leads them to an unexpected climax.

Thumbs up: The main highlights of the film are Ritesh-Genalia chemistry and their innocent love. Needles to say Riteish Deshmukh’s comic timing is impeccable. Genelia does complete justice to her meaty role with a refreshing and dynamic act. Her angle like face and cute smile add a lot to her appeal. Cinematography is good. Post interval the plot becomes interesting. Though, the story has traces of ‘Bunty and Babli’ and ‘Dil Hai Ki Maanta Nahi’, Tere naal is original.

Thumps down: Sometimes, the narrative dips in the middle and humour lacks logic. In few places over the top emotional drama makes it a irritating watch for example, the drunken Genelia scene is completely unbelievable and irritating.

The songs of the film have not generated any kind of enthusiasm. Forcefully, imposed Veena Malik’s item number is unnecessary. With a predictable plot and weak narrative may be it will not be possible for Tere Naal to turn out to be hit but the highly publicized Ritesih Deshmukh and Genelia D'Souza weeding is the only thing which could work in favour of it. Don’t expect much of it, it is a sweet and simple tale of love.
