A relocated Kashmiri Muslim girl Aayat (Sonam Kapoor) falls in love with Air Force Officer and a Punjabi boy Lt. Harinder Singh aka Harry (Shahid Kapur). Their love sees many separations predominantly owing to the Hindi-Muslim riots, or the India-Pakistan war, but it prevails through these adversities. A beautiful concept that runs smoothly in the first half but the climax is a sheer disappointment.
The movie starts with a small town Mallukot in Punjab and Pankaj Kapur in his directorial debut actually takes you on a journey into the village and the lives of its people. You grow with the love story that reminds you of your first love. But that’s where the serenity ends. The two are separated not once but many times and the film begins to drag and becomes predictable towards the end.
Cinematography in Punjab and Scotland is impressive but the major screw-up are the computer graphics used when Lt. Harinder Singh’s flies his aircraft. The hype created doesn’t lives up to expectations as they are extremely poorly crafted. Music by Pritam is soothing and shall be given thumbs up. The film reminds you of Kunal Kohli’s ‘Hum Tum’ and Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Love Aaj Kal’ and Kapur does succeed in projecting a perfect love story only if he would have kept distance from clichés.
