If you are going to Watch the movie , It will make you laugh
1 November 2009 | by Lifeboy0007See all my reviews

Ajab Prem Ki Ghajab Kahani : I give 4 out of 5 Star .

1. About Movie : This is a Ajab and Ghajab simple Down to Earth Comedy for the whole Family .No double meaning dialog , Clean and simple comedy will defiantly make you laugh . Ranbeer & Katrina has grabbed everybody's attention and they are pairing for the 1st time .

2. About Story : Go and Watch it .

In short , where there is Prem,there is Problem and vice versa .

Very Subtle Comedy . This kind of simple comedy movie has been made after a long time .

If you are going to Watch the movie , It will make you laugh .

Which was my best Comedy Sequence in the Movie ?

(A) When Prem's mother is trying to stop Prem Father from going to the Bathroom.

(B) Very Precise and not over dramatic dialog , when prem asks his father to repeat the dialog during the last fight sequence .

(C) Scene where Prem ( Ranbir) Kisses Jenny (Kaif) and says to his father that it is very common ......

(D)Prem tells his father that "there are Great son , People remember what son has done and not father" Nobody remembers the Father .....

3. About Director : Rajkumar Santoshi His Last comedy movie was " Andaz Apna Apna " . Do not compare the Ajab Prem ki Ghazab Kahani with Andaz apna apna . Both are 2 different movie . Only similarity is the Simple Comedy for the whole family .

Other Movies to Watch under the direction of Rajkumar Santhoshi : Andaz apna apna ( a must watch Comedy movie) , China Gate (Action), Pukar , Ghhayal (Action) , Ghatak (Action), Barsaat ( Romantic)

4. About Ranbir Kapoor : Prem is the character name in the movie . He did his job well in the comedy role and was able to carry the movie . He looks natural while doing dance sequence .

Other Ranbir Kapoor Movie : Bachna Hae Haseeno

5. About Katrina Kaif : Jenny in this movie . She did her job well too . She needs to work on Expressing herself in the movie . She is beautiful but needs improvement in acting .

Other Ranbeer Kapoor Movie :Singh is King , New York , Race etc....

I had lot of expectation with the song "Tu Janne Na " Video and both failed expressing them self . Both were expression less and the song demands emotions . Both the actors were lacking the feeling , emotions in the song.

6. Zakkir Hussain : Was Sajid Don in the movie and he did is part to the point . He performed well in the movie and audience liked him Other Zakhir Husain Movie: Shiva , Sarkaar

7. Darshan Jariwala and Smita Jayker : Prem Parents in the movie did a wonderful job . Their Comedy sequence where Smita try to stop Darshan from going to bathroom is hilarious.

8. Upen Patel : Jenny Boyfriend . Was o.k .

Music Review : There are around 8 songs in the album (excluding the remixes) . All together there are 14 songs in the album .

The album fits all kinds of moods . the music album is mix and match of Romantic , Hip hop and remixes .

Music Director: Pritam Release date : Nov 06 2009

Music Album Artist : Artists: K.K., Sunidhi Chauhan, Hard Kaur, Atif Aslam, Mika, Alisha Chinoy, Neeraj Shreedhar, Suzzane D'Mello, Javed Ali, Jojo, Soham, Rana Mazumdar, Ashish Pandit, Kailash Kher, Paresh, Naresh

******My Top Fav are : Tu Jaane Na & Tera Hone Laga hoo

1. Tera Hone Laga hoo : Alisha Chinoy's sensational voice and Atif Aslam exotic voice is back again with a melodious number.

2. Tu Jaane Na, a romantic number, is one of the best tracks. Sung by Atif Aslam . This song gives an impression of Qawwali too. There is another version of this song .

Atif has done a wonderful job . He has magic in his voice . He has carried the song very well and this song is a Hit .

5 Star to Atif for this song.

Even the Remix Version of "Tu Jaane Na" is great . Check out for yourself

Other Recommendations for Comedy Movie : Andaz Apna Apna , Golmal (staring Amol Palekar) , Hera Pheri , Chupke Chupke
