Itâ€™s finally out! Milan Luthriaâ€™s Chori Chori has finally seen the light of day.Â The producerâ€™s death, the distributorâ€™s strike, and not getting decent theatres are all reasons for the delay. This is Luthriaâ€™s second film, his first film, Kachche Daage, released about four years ago and had a decent box office report. Could Chori Chori be his second success as a director?
With Ajay Devganâ€™s Bhoot and Qayamat doing some good at the Box Office, and with Raniâ€™s latest successes, Saathiya and Chalte Chalte, you would guess that if you put these two streaking stars together, youâ€™re sure to get a hit, right? Letâ€™s see if thatâ€™s the caseâ€¦
The plot of Chori Chori has been done to death. Didnâ€™t we just see the exact same story in Deepa Mehtaâ€™s Bollywood Hollywood? On a lighter note, the arguments brought up between Ranbir and Khushi are very legitimate and valid. Rani Mukherjee, even with the lack of a good script, was able to breath some life into her happy-go-lucky character, Khushi. Unfortunately, Ajay Devgan seemed a bit distracted throughout the film. He was never able to completely focus on his character, and therefore, looking disinterested the entire way. Ah, the catalyst of the story, the gorgeous Sonali Bendre. Sonali did an excellent job in support and did true justice to her character, Pooja.
Sajid-Wajidâ€™s music gives this film its color and brightness, without it, I donâ€™t think the movie will have ever had a chance to succeed. Director Milan Luthriaâ€™s directorial capabilities were severely crippled by the poor script of the film.
Overall, I donâ€™t think Chori Chori was worth the wait it put us through. Ladies and Gentlemen, you can afford to give this one a missâ€¦
