Arjun and Shraddha Kapoor starting movies seem to be ranting about the same boy-girl love story stuck in mediocrity.
Have you noticed some latest Bollywood movies like-
1. Badrinath Ki Dulhania 2. Ok Jaanu
And after seeing the newest trailer of ‘Half Girlfriend’ which is adapted from novel of Chetan Bhagat ( we are not a big fan of his ) the story line seemed to be same! Was this ringing in your head too?
The story seems to be unabashedly inspired from small town boy = garish colours college-goer, mainly the guys from the UP and Bihar belt, who land up in St.Stephens College, Delhi with a dream of scoring with the beautiful, modish, suave, English-speaking Delhi girl. Yes, motivating and how?
If you see the characters from the movie, it has Arjun Kapoor, playing a Bihari boy, with a pre-quoted conception that his English sucks- And then enters the queen of the college Riya Somani, a typical South Delhi swag- luscious girl And how can Bollywood go wrong with the Kuch Kuch Hota Hai- inspired basketball love at first sight scene- And then the mandatory firecrackers, that signals that your girl is finally head over heels over so it's time to climb up the terrace and embrace the sky - I guess you must have heard this line ‘oh! Tumhare cheek par kuch laga hua hai’ for the first time! And Heroine escapes to a foreign location, boy realises the love for her and runs to her on exotic NY roads! To stir audience souls further, Arijit Singh, soothing voice has been dashed to make the story more interesting and love struck.
Bollywood has fed us nuisance in the name of love for decades now. The girl is left with no option but to force herself to fall for the uninvited douche that we call "the hero." And ‘Half Girlfriend’ doesn’t seems to differ!
Movies like “Lipstick Under My Burkha” which is banned in India by Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) is now eligible for Golden Globes and winning laurels across the globe. And what are we doing? Getting excited for remakes, which actually make no sense! Well, things really doesn’t sound right.
Filmmaker Alankrita Srivastava’s shared the big news on Twitter-
The producer of movie, Prakash Jha, said, “Lipstick Under My Burkha is a very universal film, it transcends cultures and countries. I am glad that the Hollywood Foreign Press association recognized that quality and made the IFFLA opening of Lipstick Under My Burkha an official screening of the HFPA, thus making our film eligible for the Golden Globes.”
Well, we are still waiting for Ache Dinn To Hit!
