Milan Kundera, one of the most celebrated writers had once said" To be a writer one does not mean to preach truth, it means to discover truth", viewed from this perspective LOVE AAJ KAL is indeed a discovery of Love in its present context. It is placing of the concept of love in its modern perspective tempered with ground realities. Taking off from Kundera, LOVE AAJ KAL is discovery of truth through the dialogues of the present times, the lingo as it has evolved from the streets.
Imtiaz Ali right from the time when he made his debut SOCHA NA THA is indeed on a discovery mode of truth that meandered in its most diversified formation through JAB WE MET and now has come out in an evolved form through LOVE AAJ KAL. Saif Ali Khan in combination with Deepika Padukone has once again underlined the fact that when he performs solo he can hold the fort, and by playing the younger version of Rishi Kapoor in LOVE AAJ KAL he has again underlined the fact that he is ready to take over the mantle of lover boy from Rishi Kapoor. LOVE AAJ KAL is more an underlining of the fact that one should be comfortable with what one is doing, and rest of the things would fall in their place.
LOVE AAJ KAL has also brought another importance facet of the Indian social milieu, rather discovered the truth, it being, the usage of band music for expression of joy, and it has been seamlessly integrated in the title song "Chor Bajaari", with a rare panache. Pritam has intelligently been using the hit melodies from the past as interludes in his song, as he did in "Yaara Kabhie Ishq to Karo" for KYA LOVE STORY HAI, and has used the NAAGIN signature tune in "Twist", and by intelligent mixing has given it a new dimension.
With these heady combinations and the charm of Deepika along with the old romantic Rishi Kapoor's presence LOVE AAJ KAL indeed would be giving a new dimension to the manner in which love can be interpreted in the present interesting times.
