Take that - The CM's son on a different pitch. Playing different ball game altogether. With father tackling he diversity of a huge state, the son gets lured into the 'glam-sham' world of Bollywood. And getting alteast 'passing' marks in the bargain. Yes, we're talking about our CM Mr Deshmukh's son Ritesh, making his debut in a chocolate-comedy love flick "Tujhe Meri Kasam".

As things stand, Rishi (Ritesh) and Anju (Genelia) are the best of buddies, with many similarities. Living in the same colony, going to the same school/college, sharing the same birthday, parents too were old pals, etc. etc... Their friendship is there for all to see. And predictably, it transforms into love, but both are not sure about it.

A temporary partition later, when they do realize, it's already late. There's two more people added in the picture. One, a shy suitor, Akash (Raja) for Anju, and two, a silent lover of Rishi, Girija (Shriya). A good climax sorts out the messy situation. The script is nothing new, but the atmosphere (freshness) appeals to you. Cinematography is ice-candy. Guest appearances by Bipasha Basu (unnecessary) & the 'item girl' Isha Koppikar (what else than doing item numbers), doesn't help.

The hype surrounding the film is obvious, as it involves the son of a political bigwig. And don't be surprised if you see a Congressman sitting next to you, watching it.

Of the cast, Genelia D'Souza fits into her role like a glove in hand. Whereas, Ritesh Deshmukh is at comfortable ease doing he comic-one liners. An architect by profession, he's done a good job for a debutante.

VERDICT: A clean film with no 'disshum-disshum'. Worth a 'dekho'.
