IMDB Rating: 4.7
Director: Kunal Deshmukh
Starring: Emraan Hashmi, Soha Ali Khan, Mantra
Tum Mile Review: Tum Mile is a thoughtful love story which I found very engaging, and aided by emotionally intense performances from the cute pair Emraan Hashmi & Soha Ali Khan. Even the songs were quite romantic & foot tapping.
Talking more about the performances, Emraan was really cool. So also was Mantra, the actor who played Emraan’s close buddy. It’s unfortunate to not see his name in the cast details of this movie. Soha Ali Khan has also acted with caliber. However, she looked slightly aged in the closeup shots.
The scenes of the monsoon floods in Mumbai as the backdrop of this love story was handled very well till footage of actual floods in Mumbai(the 2005 floods?) were showcased as the real thing. It looked very obvious that the shots were lifted from old television news of the actual floods in Mumbai. That took some charm out of this movie.
Also, the end was unsatisfactory. It looked like a patch-up work because till then, I felt the story moved like a poem. Verdict – It could have been a soulful romantic drama but good show anyway.
