Gori Tere Pyar Mein : Review

Rating : ***1/2                                                                     

Story: She's the Punjab-di-gori who loves her 'mera gaon mera desh'. He's the rich Tamilian playboy who likes his women and his cars 'fast'. In a clash of ideologies, they seem to be a bridge too far.

Review: Meet the gorgeous gora-gori jodi of this village-side story. Dia (Kareena), a social worker living in Bengaluru. There she meets the phoren-educated architect Sriram (Imran) - who she calls 'Sridevi'; a misfit and 'black' sheep in a traditional, lungi-clad Tam-Brahm family. He's carefree, casual about love, lazy and shows little humanitarian inkling. She's a fiery, righteous rebel, a mini 'Mother India' who fights for everything 'unfair'. They fall in love, but their ideologies are unaligned, so over some 'tooh-tooh main main', they split up and move on. He moves on to Vasudha (Shraddha), the pretty matrimonial pick, while Dia heads to a remote village in Gujarat.

Soon he realizes his dil beats for Dia, and he follows her all the way to Jhumligaon. The only way to win her over is to embrace the gobar, gareebi, gais(cows) murghis (though he'd rather see the 'chick(en)s' in a tandoor), and whole bunch of dhoti-clad villagers (straight out of 'Lagaan', even with 'Oh Mitwa' playing in the background for impact). Yes, he even sacrifices his strictly 'chicketarian' diet for dhoklas instead (becharo chhokro!). Lastly, he helps Dia with her mammoth dream of replacing the gaon's shaky rope-bridge with a real one. Now, will 'Sridevi' be able to use his chaalbaazi to crossover to his chhori - That's the idea.

Imran, is most at ease playing Romedy roles, it shows. He's endearing and likeable as a loverboy. Kareena looks stunning in her desi avatar and pulls off the chhori-chichhori with spontaneity and spunk. Shraddha makes a 'pretty' pleasant cameo; and Anupam Kher entertains with his madcap act.

Punit's 'GTPM', is a sweet, breezy romcom with likeable characters presented in glossy, lavish, true Karan Johar (producer) style. In the second half, the 'the bridge over troubled waters' project is a bit stretched, and you wish thegaonwallahs would leave the pair to romance instead. Music (Vishal-Shekhar) is peppy and pleasing.

This isn't the most rousing romance (second-half lacks 'rom'), but has its feel-good moments. Chew it up with some 'Chingam' and a cute date.
