Tere naal Love ho Gaya

Directed by: Mandeep Kumar

CAST: Riteish Deshmukh, Genelia D’Souza, Om Puri

GENRE: Romance 

Mandeep Kumar’s directorial debut in Bollywood, Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya (TNLHG), not only has its heart in the right place, but also has the right heart! It is made on a low budget, with most of the movie being shot in rural locales. The treatment is a little amateurish.

The story line is straightforward and simple, and the newlyweds in real life—Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza—do form an endearing pair on screen as well. Genelia scores simply by underplaying her ebullience. Normally well-suited for the role of the gutsy, bindaas female lead, she has successfully overcome that temptation – and a tendency to display her teeth. She needs to work on her dialogue delivery, and facial expressions.

Riteish Deshmukh’s image is even more firmly planted – that of an actor who is very much at home playing me-too roles in multi-star cast inane comedies. He appears to be in discomfort when the camera focuses primarily on him. Fortunately, the script demands that he play second fiddle to Genelia; and he seems to be very happy doing that!

The twist in the second half, and the character of the professional kidnapper played excellently by thespian Om Puri, add to the attraction – and a few comic sequences are also refreshing. The team of Sachin-Jigar scores with two hummable songs; one of which—“O Re Piya”—certainly has potential to be a hit number. These positives are partly offset by the irrelevant introduction of an item number by Veena Mallik. Her fairly vulgar movements mar the complexion of this family-oriented presentation. 

The freshness of the movie will appeal  to audiences in the hinterland as well; and therefore TNLHG will provide good returns for the makers.
