Love Story 2050 has been in the news for months. It was hyped for all the right reasons: itís new to have a sci-fi movie in Bollywood, Priyanka has red hair, we were being introduced to a good looking new actor, etc. Sadly, the movie falls below all expectations. Itís a glossy film that is beautiful minus a story.
The story starts in Present Day (Mumbai): a rich industrialistís son, Karan (Harman Baweja), is very carefree. He falls in love with the shy and sweet Sana (Priyanka Chopra) and sings a few songs. Sana meets Karanís family, including his Uncle Ya (Boman Irani), who worked for years to create a time machine. Yes, he looks like Einstein and very eccentric.
All is well until there is an accident and Karan decides to go to the future to make things right. He lands up in Mumbai in 2050 to find Sana, only to realize she doesnít know who he is. So our hero goes on an adventure to win her heart again and also fight a ridiculous and evil villain.
Looking back, Love Story 2050 is a technical treat. The music, choreography, art direction, special effects, they all gel well to add power to the film. I blame Harry Baweja for writing a story with no real plot. The screenplay is a complete letdown and dialogues come off as cheesy. The editing in the action sequences is quite interesting.
Overall, if you are a big fan of sci-fi, then do watch the movie, but otherwise itís really disappointing and boring!
