Ek Mein Aur Ek Tu

Director Shakun Batra’s Ek Mein Aur Ek Tu is a light hearted romantic comedy starring Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor. The movie is about Rahul (Imran) living a looser’s life, obeying his parent’s advice. His dull life gets a charm after his meeting a girl Riana Briganza (Kareena) who is elder than him. Soon after their first meeting Riana takes Rahul for a drink on a Christmas eve. To show his toughness Rahul drinks too much and both of them goes for almost all kinds of pranks ending up in their marriage at the famous wedding chapel in Las Vegas. Rest developments in each ones life is the core of EMAET.

The thought of drunk and getting married is copied from the famous english TV series FRIENDS. The wedding of Ross Geller and Rachel Green has surely inspired the writers in that. Out of this spark the makers have created a somewhat practical modern love story. The movie has somewhat the same feel of Karan Johar’s previous small releases like Wake Up Sid and I hate Love Stories.

In the performance side Imran has delivered Rahul in a really impressive way. Geeky in first half, cool in the second half. Loved the scene where he explodes to his parents for controlling him too much. Kareena as Riana Briganza was also cool. Riana has the shades of Geet of Jab We Met. But still she did it neatly. Small but important roles of veterans like Boman Irani, Ram Kapoor, Ratna Pathak Shah etc were also nice.

In the backstage, direction is cool, but nothing fresh in terms of style. Dialogs have also followed the recent trends like too much non-veg content. Cant blame the makers for that. Thats how our society is now a days. Amit Trivedi’s Music is engaging. Cuts and captures are also cool. As I said earlier the story structure is similar to I hate love stories and Wake Up Sid. But the good part is that the dosage of usual karan Johar Melodrama was very less. The climax might not convince all. But I felt it as a somewhat practical/ possible climax.

I am giving 2.5/5 and a thumbs up for director Shakun Batra’s romantic comedy “Ek Mein Aur Ek Tu”.
Its a fun one time watch. Go with your friends, watch it, enjoy it, forget it.

NOTE: If you haven’t seen FRIENDS, 3/5 is a justifiable rating.

Final Thoughts

Its a fun one time watch. Go with your friends, watch it, enjoy it, forget it.
