26th July, 2005 rang an ominous bell-for most but amidst all the chaos and the tragedy, it reunites two star crossed ex lovers (Emraan Hashmi and Soha Ali Khan). 2 people who meet after a hiatus of 6 years-now occupying different worlds. What starts off as a seemingly innocuous and even awkward encounter on the same flight back to Mumbai, ends up as a rollercoaster ride through some of the darkest hours of Mumbai as they see the city get swamped with disaster and loss and are forced to stick together in this time of crisis.



While watching Tum Mile, and feeling terribly uninvolved and bored, you cannot help but get thinking - what if Emraan and Soha never met?

Perhaps then, thankfully, this drab and lifeless film would never have got made.

Maybe then, you would have done better things with your time and money rather than try to make sense of an extremely weak screenplay that looks at two not-so-interesting people, who meet, break up and then meet again 6 years later on 26th July, 2005, the day of the Mumbai deluge, and (yawn) get back together.

You would have been spared of wondering why the backdrop of Mumbai rains have been chosen as it doesn’t add anything to the story.

You would not have to think how weakly the relationship aspect has been dealt with, leave aside the backdrop. For there is nothing to hold your attention in the scenes of Emraan and Soha meeting, their love story developing and their subsequent break up, and in spite of their sincere efforts, Emraan and Soha are unable to rise above the script and carry the film on their slender shoulders.

You would have avoided wondering why you had to endure the entire dull flashback sequences, especially, when a rapidly cut montage tells you the entire basic back story of the relationship in seconds.

You would have saved yourself the trouble of questioning various logical loopholes in the story; how easy the film showed it was to find people stuck in the deluge and to find empty space in a coffee shop while trying to find shelter; why was Soha behaving lovey dovey in the plane with her friend, them entwining their fingers with each other, when he was but a gay colleague; how ....oh forget it.

OK, you would have missed some pleasant enough but not his usual chart bursting songs from Pritam. But, they fail to have an impact anyway with their flat picturisation.

You would not have rued yet again, how woeful this year has been for Hindi cinema, qualitywise.
