Break ke Baad


Hindi, Drama, Romance, 2010, Color

Cast And Crew

Abhay Gulati Iimran Khan) and Aaliya Khan (Deepika Padukone) have known each other since they were four years old. Their friendship turned into love at the tender age of 15, when Abhay realises Aaliya is the girl for him. Aaliya's life is defined by her burning desire to become an actress and she is unmindful of what or who comes in her way. Abhay who is still unsure about what he wants to do finds himself competing with Aaliya's incessant plans and projects to fulfill her dreams. While their relationship blooms because of their personality differences, the baggage because of these differences also grows silently. Things come to a head when Aaliya decides to go to Australia to study and Abhay has to deal with the prospect of a long term relationship, secretly fearing that he will lose Aaliya forever. He takes a leap of faith and they decide to take this time off from each other to figure out what they want to do. The choices Abhay and Aaliya make from here on tests their relationship...

Break ke Baad (BKB) is yet another example of how dismal our films are becoming today. A total wannabe Yashraj, K Jo type offering, the film lacks their flair and ends up as extremely tedious viewing.

The film has very little going for it. The script, having shades of Salaam Namaste, Love Aaj Kal and others, is extremely weak, the dialogues largely inane, the situations uninteresting, the narrative flat, plodding and predictable, the story lacks memorable moments - romantic or otherwise, the characterisations, Imran in particular, are uni-dimensional, the film lacks memorable music (Dooriyaan comes off best but still is no chartbuster) and what's more, even the performances are nothing to write home about. And the so-called twist in the climax (if one can call it that) can be smelt a mile away.

Imran is unable to rise above the script with his too-good-to-be-true dull character and ends up being too low-key even if sincere and while Deepika's role at least has some shades to it (not very likeable ones though), sadly, she is no actress to carry them off. Their opposites-attract romance simply fails to draw you into their story and frankly, you care neither about their break nor what happens after that. Shahana Goswami is ok and it is nice to see the gracious Sharmila Tagore again on screen but she is wasted as is Lillette Dubey but who at least has the honour of being given the one truly witty dialogue in the entire film.

Technicalities too fail to lift the film. All in all, BKB is plain mediocre and BOOOOORRRRIIING!
