Review by Faisal Saif, Mumbai: Sometimes there are films that looks promising from the Presentation, Ajab Gazabb Love, unfortunately, lacks the real content.
The story of the film is an inspiration of a super hit telugu film "Seema Tapakai". But here Sanjay Gadhvi decided to make few changes considering the Hindi Viewer's in mind.
Rajveer Grewal (Jackky Bhagnani) is the son of a big businessman and multimillionaire, Yashwardhan Grewal (Darshan jariwala). His father is so rich that he hates even the smell of the poor, and despises anyone who talks about giving money as alms. Rajveer's family too, doesn't mind the opulence they have. Coming from this family, he falls in love with Maddy (Nidhi Subbaiah), who thinks the rich become richer by exploiting the poor. In order to make Maddy fall for him, Rajveer starts acting as a poor chap, with a poor family. He buys his way out to show Maddy that he helps the poor, and unintentionally becomes their savior of sorts. When Maddy accepts his love, he recruits his family to help him convince her completely. So the rich father becomes a banana seller, rich mother becomes a Blind Woman etc. The story takes a twist when Maddy's No-Nonsense brother Arjun Rampal (Karan Singh Chauhan) comes into the picture to meet Rajveer's parents.
Ajab Gazabb Love does have some mind blowing comic events. But they don't seem long lasting. The only strong factor in the film are Performances. Kirron Kher, Jackky Bhagnani and Darshan Jariwala are amazing. Nidhi Subbaiah is not a face for a Long Run. Her acting capablity is Flat and Expressionless. She reminds you of Riya Sen. Arjun Rampal is good. And so is Arshad Warsi in a cameo. Jackky Bhagnani tries real hard and succeeds big time. What he needs is a progressive script.
The proceeding of the film is repetitive. There is nothing new in the movie that you have not seen earlier. Huge amount of money have been spent on Erotic Locations and Costumes. Sanjay Gadhvi comes after a long gap, But as a Director he is handicapped by a wrongly developed script. Musically, Only the song 'Boom Boom' is tapping.
The film is just a one time watch. Especially when there is an over-flow of Films this season.
Cast: Jackky Bhagnani, Nidhi Subbaiah, Darshan Jariwala, Kirron Kher and Arjun Rampal (Cameo).
Directed By: Sanjay Gadhvi.
