CAST & CREW
A love story? A girl and boy fall in love, some incident separates them, they are back together and live happily ever after. TERE NAAL LOVE HO GAYA though is a love story at its heart, manages to defy the norm being slightly different from others as it has a mind of its own.
Plot: The story largely revolves around Mini played by the ever so bubbly Genelia D'Souza who in spite of having a rich father isn’t such a brat and is smart enough to free herself from the wedding trap set for her. What sets Mini apart is not only her smartness but also the touch of craziness that she possesses.
Meanwhile, Viren played by the comical Ritesh Deshmukh is an auto-rickshaw driver aspiring a simple, successful and peaceful life. These contrasts bump into each other and create a fake kidnap kind of situation, which is followed by a real kidnap that involves a gangster. The film further reveals that the gangster is Viren’s very own father, leading to an introduction of Viren’s extended family. With that in the backdrop, Viren and Mini do fall in love and bound to arise chaos does appear. They will live happily ever after; that is a given but how will the things fall into place? that’s to find out.
Analysis: Director Mandeep Kumar holds the film throughout never letting it be a bore at any point, the film being a love story has its romantic gushy moments. Ritesh and Genelia’s real life equation brings in mind-blowing chemistry to the film. It’s a love story, but it's not just another one, being similar to other rom-com’s, at the same time standing apart, that’s the one thing this film boasts of.
Star Performances: Genelia is amazing as the happy go lucky girl who also quite resembles her real life persona, but never in a scene she seems over the top; she makes Mini believable. Ritesh, on the other hand, plays a character different from what he has done before, still, manages to be equally appreciative. The supporting cast includes Om Puri who being the great actor he is, manages to be hilarious.
What’s there? Locations of Haryana, quirky romantic scenes, engaging chemistry, a doze of non-mainstream love story all characterize TERE NAAL LOVE HO GAYA.
What’s not there? The film has it all that it needs to be a romantic comedy. It is amazing and holds you in the first half, but weakens in the second half and makes up for it in the climax.
Verdict: The romantic comedy fanatics are going to like it hands down; others might give it a shot. Both ways it qualifies for a one time watch.
