Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu opens worldwide today, check what the early morning viewers had to say about Karan Johar's second release of the year and also what critic Komal Nahta had to say!
Debutant Director Shakun Batra's 'Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu' is A Decent Effort, that has its moments. It has some merits, that work on its advantage. However, the Slow-Pace as well as the Abstract Culmination play a spoil-sport.
'Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu' Synopsis: A few drinks too many leads an uptight architect and quick- witted hairstylist to marry in Las Vegas. Can a mistake lead to friendship and love?
'Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu' borrows its basic premise from the Hollywood Hit 'What Happens In Vegas', but otherwise the film is original, as much as I can recall. The film begins tepidly, but gathers momentum when the protagonists get hitched accidentally. Ayesha Devitre & Shakun Batra's Screenplay has its moments. However, as mentioned, the Slow-Pace & the Abstract & Unconvincing Culmination play a spoil-sport. The pacing definitely could've been faster & the culmination needed to be Convincing. Shakun Batra's Direction, shows immense promise. The Debutant has the spark one expects from a filmmaker. Cinematography is perfect. Editing is fair. Music by Amit Trivedi, is passable.
Performance-Wise: Kareena Kapoor is dependable, as always. Imran Khan has improved as an actor & he does impress in some scenes, especially in the scene where he confronts his parents. Boman Irani is superb. Ratna Pathak Shah is as usual. Ram Kapoor & Sonia Mehra are winsome in cameos. The actors who play Kareena's Parents, are extremely charming.
On the whole, 'Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu' is flawed, but a decent watch nonetheless.
