Movie Review “Break Ke Baad” (2010)
Genre: Romantic comedy
Director: Danish Aslam
Star Cast: Imran khan, Deepika Padukone, Sharmila Tagor, Shahana Goswami and others
‘Break Ke Baad’ is a romantic comedy, so it is as predictable as every other movie of this genre. But still we go for these movies to check out the chemistry and romance between two actors and if there is any new perspective by director. In this movie we see Imran Khan and Deepika Padukone first time together on the screen. And that was the biggest attraction of the movie. Both Imran and Deepika are playing similar characters they played in earlier movies. Imran’s character is similar to his ‘Jane Tu Ya Jane Na’ character. And Deepika played similar charcter in ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’ and ‘Love Aaj Kal’.
The movie is a story of two childhood friends, Abhay Gulati (played by Imran Khan) and Aaliya Khan (played by Deepika Padukone). They both love each other and are in relationship for many years. Aaliya is an aspiring actress against her mother’s (played by Sharmila Tagor) wishes. Abhay is a bemused guy who works with his father. But he hates his job. Aaliya decides to go to Australia for studies. And because of this their relationship started to fall apart. So Aaliya decides to break-up with Abhay. And how Abhay cope up with it and is he able to win her back?
Well as I said earlier movie is predictable, nothing new to watch. Movie has some good comic, emotional, romantic moments in it. But at the end of the movie you don’t feel much has happened. There are no twists throughout the film. Imran Khan worked well as a lover boy and seems believable. Deepika Padukone supposed to be on her home ground, so did good job. I will like to see her in different characters next time, to see if she can handle it.
All in all BREAK KE BAAD is an average film, if I have to rate this movie I will give it 6 out of 10.
