That’s the latest release from Nu Metro Bollywood, and it’s due for release on 9 July. Filming started more than six years ago, but Milenge Milenge has been worth the wait.
The story reminds us that the quest for that special person in our lives is always an opportunity for destiny to direct the course of events. But, should you risk tempting fate by testing what seems to be its plans, or should you let go and enjoy the ride?
The plan hatched by destiny is for Amit (Shahid Kapoor) and Priya (Kareena Kapoor), who meet at a youth festival in Bangkok. Priya is a girl with substance, the precise opposite of the teens and college students of the 21st century. Priya is at heart a pure romantic, and she holds a clear image of her perfect life partner. Naturally, he’s a paragon of virtue who abstains from alcohol, never touches tobacco, and is incapable of telling a lie. Enter Amit, who drinks like a fish, smokes like a veld fire and lies on the least excuse.
Priya’s and Amit’s worlds crash headlong into each other when he happens to lay his hands on Priya’s private diary. It reveals to him her likes and dislikes, which gives him a chance to impress by giving her a totally false picture of himself. In short, he acts as her dream mate would. Which is enough to attract Priya to Amit in a big way, and they spend days together cavorting around Bangkok and spiralling closer and closer together with every moment that passes.
Now the drama kicks in. Priya discovers her diary in Amit’s room just as he is telling his pals he is going to reform and become the man his true love wants him to be. The confrontation flings them apart, and fate has to work hard to bring them back together. Does it? And if so will Priya and Amit find happiness together?
You need to see this charming romantic comedy to find out. It’s one of those rare movies with all the right ingredients with the right amount of romance and fun. Milenge Milenge is a delightful fairytale that makes you fall in love all over again.
