Indeed, we think so too.
Akshay Kumar's films are becoming classier by the month. There's a certain restrain in his presence here. The way he conveys the pain and hurt of an impossible love, is quite surprising for an actor who until recently was counted among the wooden.
Director Raj Kanwar's recent efforts to polish up his act have yielded tepid results. DHAI AKSHAR PREM KE and the boxoffice hit ANDAAZ were louder than the lyrical aspirations of their creator.
Kanwar gets it more right this time. The theme of 'love versus obligation' is nothing new to our cinema. Then redemptive hope lies in the treatment. And we aren't let down completely in the way the jukebox- symphony moves forward.
There's a certain elegance in the movement of the mix 'n' match love story. Aditya (Akshay) and Jiya (Katrina) engaged to marry the wrong life partners must move towards that inevitable mutual embrace at the end when the scrambled game of musical chairs finally ends.
In between there are several musical pieces choreographed with an eye-catching ?lan. One of them filmed in a commodious banquet even has yesteryears' cabaret queen Helen breaking into a sassy jig.
