Milenge Milenge Review: Milenge Milenge, was perfectly fit for 2004-2005. If it released then, it would have definitely done better than it is doing now. Starring Kareena and Shahid, this is the usual done and re-done story. Kareena goes to a tarot card reader and says she will meet her love of her life within the next seven days, on a foreign beach. Obviously, she believes it, and has to go abroad for something, and the story unfolds.
The beginning of the Milenge Milenge is bearable, but as it develops, it doesn’t work. Before the scene even begins, the viewer knows exactly what is going to happen. This is one of the reasons why it doesn’t work. Another reason would be the acting. Four years ago, Shahid and Kareena weren’t exactly the most talented actors. After their acting was recognized in certain movies (Jab We Met) they did quite a lot of movies, especially Shahid Kapoor. The music is not so good, the only likable song would be the Himesh track, the rest are just sort of there. It’s very dated, and really entertaining, just one of those half-baked, cheesy movies that you would want to watch again.
The rating for Milenge Milenge is totally wrong. This film is quite fun to watch. The DVD’s sound quality is excellent, if you have home theater, you can wear different sound coming from different speakers. Not that many Indian films have that quality. Second, the music score is excellent, too. It sounded like it was composed by someone from Hollywood. And there are plenty of unexpected twists, just when you thought that fate will help them to reunite, it took a different turn. Unlike some other Indian boring romantic films which sometimes have to read something else at the same time, this one kept me watching till the end. well done!
