Star Solid: Karanvir Bohra, Priya Banerjee, Samir Kochhar, Mahesh Balraj
Director: Lalit Mohan Tiwari
‘Aksar log pyaar mein logic ko ignore kar dete hain, par mein pyaar mein thode hello hoon?’, quips a police inspector to his junior whereas investigating a case. Properly, that is precisely the sentiment which runs by means of you whereas watching Karanvir Bohra’s Bollywood debut, ‘Hume Tumse Pyaar Kitna’.
First issues first, the movie opens in a picturesque hill-station the place it is ‘pyaar ka aghaaz’ for Dhruv (Karanvir Bohra) when he comes throughout a hotshot novelist Ananya (Priya Banerjee).
Whereas Dhruv stays in his la-la land for more often than not, in actuality, Ananya is in love with a wealthy industrialist (Sameer Kocchar). As time passes, Dhruv’s love turns right into a darkish obsession.
Issues take an unpleasant flip when Ananya decides to marry her lover and Dhruv’s infatuation unleashes mayhem of their lives.
After helming many fashionable TV reveals, Lalit Mohan makes his directorial debut in movies with ‘Hume Tumse Pyaar Kitna’. However sadly, the spectacular issues in his first movie are just some counts on the fingertips.
His therapy to the romantic thriller is outdated and the grim screenplay does no good both. Hume Tumse Pyaar Kitna is extra like a step again in time the place Bollywood romanticised tales of obssessive lovers who thought love is all about stalking, harassing and doing something and all the pieces to get the woman.
The plot lacks suspense to maintain your eyes glued to the display screen. A number of the dialogues have extra cheese than your pizza.
Karanvir Bohra who efficiently pulled off anti-hero roles on the small display screen, will get to tread on an analogous path in his Bollywood debut as effectively and the actor is convincing in his function to a big extent. It is the mediocre writing and route which prevents him from rising above his written character.
Priya Banerjee disappoints along with her drab act and Sameer Kocchar is forgetable. The remainder of the solid barely go away a mark.
Barring the songs, many of the digicam work offers you the texture of watching a day by day TV cleaning soap unfolding on the large display screen, the place the characters imagine in some ‘loud performing’. Solely the title observe holds your consideration, whereas the remaining merely act as mere fillers.
Karanvir Bohra’s ‘Hume Tumse Pyaar Kitna’ journeys over and fails to keep up a effective steadiness between romance and thrills. Rajesh Khanna-Hema Malini’s iconic tune by the identical identify from ‘Kudrat’ deserved a greater tribute than this lackluster fare. I am going with 2 stars.
