Movie Review: ‘Teri Meri Kahaani’ (** Two Star)

 (By Akshat Sharma) A love story spanning three generations could be nerve wrecking if the storyline and sequences become predictable. Director Kunal Kohli is known for his penchant for rom-com movies. The man who gave us hits like ‘Hum Tum’ and ‘Fanna’ looks disoriented and vague in his latest offering ‘Teri Meri Kahaani’. With Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra in the lead Kunal could have delivered another impressive movie but he wasted the opportunity by essaying a story which had too many weak links.

‘Teri Meri Kahaani’ showcases three love stories in three different time period and geographies. The first one is set in Lahore of 1910. In 1960 the story is set in Mumbai and in 2012 it reaches England. The chemistry between Shahid-Priyanka tries to save the movie but the story line is so predictable that even the best of their efforts fail to inspire enthusiasm in cine goers.

Shahid Kapoor gives a credible performance in all his three characters. Specially in his role of Javed Quadri he manages to bring smiles on audience faces. Surprisingly Priyanka Chopra’s performance looks routine in all three characters played by her. It certainly disappoints her fans who were looking forward to a better performance from her.

Music of the movie is the only high point of  ‘Teri Meri Kahaani’. Songs like ‘Mukhtasar’ and ‘Humse Pyar Kar Le Tu’ already became chartbusters before the movie released on the silver screen. This weekend ‘Teri Meri Kahani’ was supposed to be a big draw but it could only manage a mixed response from the audience. Watch the movie only if you are die-hard Shahid-Priyanka fan.
