Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani is a roller-coaster ride of laugh riot with an exciting on-screen chemistry between the lead pair.
Prem (Ranbir Kapoor) is a happy-go-lucky young man and a member of the local Happy Club whose motto is to be happy and make others too happy.
Prem takes on this motto with utmost commitment and goes to any length to do so. His doting mom and dad (Smita Jaykar and Darshan Zariwala) allow him to do his own thing. And there is the local don Sajid (Zakir Husain) playing truant.
A chance meet with Jenny (Katrina Kaif) makes him more happy and he falls in love with her. Then he comes to know that Jenny is in love with Rahul (Upen Patel) son of politician Pitambar (Govind Namdeo). Prem decides to unite Rahul and Jenny.
From then on starts a series of incidents that tickle the funny bone as the film goes to its logical climax.
It is Ranbir Kapoor’s show all the way and the he is doing the first comedy film of his career, he gives an ebullient and energetic performance. His comic timing and one-liners are a treat to watch. Katrina Kaif is as glamorous as ever and her on-screen chemistry with Ranbir is something that should be seen to be believed.
Salman Khan’s cameo is entertaining. Darshan Jariwala and Smita Jaykar steal the show with their top grade performances. Upen Patel does his role with elan. Govind Namdeo and Zakir Hussain fit their roles very well. All others are more than adequate and add to the merriment.
Rajkumar Santoshi, who is known for making intense cinema, comes out with stellar laugh-riot with Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani. There are some loose ends here and there plus a couple of illogical incidents, but when the entire film is a comic entertainer nothing matters.The dialogues are crisp and witty. Music by Pritam is a chartbuster. Technical values of the film are quite high.
Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani is one rib-tickling cinematic experience of entertainment that no one should miss. Go to the nearest theatre and watch Ranbir’s antics.
