Hamari Adhuri Kahani Review By Martin D'Souza, Glamsham Editorial

A successful businessman who has had a tough life immediately senses the trouble a beautiful lady is in. She has a young son and her husband has been missing since the last five years. She has known her husband for just one year after her arranged marriage.


The businessman knows what it is to grow up without the security of a father and his heart immediately reaches out to Vasudha Prasad (Vidya Balan) and her young son. Just when things seem to fall in place for the businessman Aarav (Emraan Hashmi) and Vasudha, her husband emerges. Her world is torn apart, yet again.

At the heart of the plot is a good story, but in presenting it on celluloid Mohit Suri bungles. The plot is forgotten and all the flaws take the cake. There are instances which leave you wondering how a director can take an actor of Vidya Balan's stature and make her do the things he did. I mean, there are some really silly situations and weak emotional moments which fall flat. Vidya tries real hard, but even she cannot resurrect the situation which is so poorly written.

Then there are some even funnier moments where in one scene an old man suddenly comes up and says, ''I will take care of you,'' when Aaarav's mother asks her son who will take care of us? Just like that, this guy pops up on screen and into their lives.

The award must go this this one line, Aaarav's friend and PA keeps on saying: ''We will miss our flight, Aarav.''

Clearly, this is a bad choice of selection yet again by Vidya. After KAHAANI, why an Aadhuri Kahaani?
