Movie Review-"U ME AUR HUM" (Good but long and flat)

Indian cine fans are desperately waiting for biggest hit film of 2008, because all the films released in last few months were not up to mark. Now all the hopes of people are on Ajay Devgan home production film “U ME AUR HUM” which released today. With this film Ajay Devgan entered in the line of direction and presented his first directorial debut to people. Also Devgan couple Ajay and Kajol are in lead role in this film.

From my side this is a good film and Ajay Devgan can become very good director, however, this film clearly misses the scope of best film of 2008. Direction wise Ajay Devgan has taken care of even minor details and film is full of good camera work and beautiful scenes, however, many places he looks overdoing all this or film become very flat or simply boring. Though, in begging film starts very well and it looks that we are going to see one wonderful film, however films goes through number of boring phases as it progress further.

The story of film revolves around Ajay a leading psychiatrist and waitress on cruise Pia. Film is first about winning love and then about living with it in all conditions good or bad. First half of the film is on cruise where Ajay fall in love with Pia and try everything to win her love even telling number of lies. In second half, Pia forgive Ajay and marry him but new turn comes when it is discovered that 28 year old has Alzheimer disease happen to only 2 in thousand in this age. In between Pia also become pregnant and give birth to baby boy under complications.

Later due to her disease, she even becomes threat to her new born child and herself. Now, Ajay face dilemma of living with her wife or sending her to hospital. Though, he send her to hospital and later again decide to take care of her himself. In this phase, this film looks like documentary made on patients suffering from Alzheimer disease and a great husbands sacrifice for her wife. It also looks that Ajay Devgan has done very less research about Alzheimer patients and he has shown in film whatever he thinks right, while Amir Khan’s directed Tare Zameen Par was much better and to the point.

Though, “U ME AUR HUM” also has number of good moments which show the good direction of Ajay Devgan even some people can weep on few scenes in end, however a consistency in his direction looks missing. Acting wise most of the stars are fine and too some extent film is able to present a good watch, however, it is no way the best film which we are waiting.

Rating-2.5/5
