There is a scene in Love Aaj Kal, where Jai (Saif Ali Khan) is discussing his problem with Veer Singh (Rishi Kapoor). Now the fact is, Imtiaz Ali can write kickass lines straight out of your daily life. Jai says, ” Zyada der dukh nahin rah sakta. Defective piece hoon main. Phat se teek ho jaaoonga!”
Now that exactly seems to be my problem. Or the bigger question – Is that a problem at all?
I have much more to write about this movie but cannot write anything that hasn’t already been written. It’s wonderful to say the least. Why don’t we get to see such realistic urban portrayal in Tamil cinema? Can someone who is not named Mani Ratnam/Gautam Menon make such a movie? Please.
