Finally, a movie that delivers what it promises! A sweet, simple, charming feel good story that will keep you smiling from beginning to end.
Kismat Konnection is another film that I was looking forward to after all the promotion Shahid and Vidya have been doing lately, as well as the hot soundtrack. And I was pleasantly surprised.
Cast: Shahid Kapoor, Vidya Balan
Raj(Shahid Kapoor) is a down and out architect jiski kismat footi hooi hai!! Vishal is his best friend. His kismat changes when he bumps into Priya (Vidya Balan). Crystal Ball reader Haseena Bano Jaan (Juhi) makes him realize that Priya is his lucky charm. Hate at first sight eventuaally blossoms into friendship and love when Raj gets her buttery boyfriend Karan(Vir Bohra) out of the way! Priya unknowingly helps Raj seal a dream deal with Mr. Gill (Om Puri) to build a mall where she runs a community centre. Eventually, Raj has to choose between his love and his career.
There is nothing new about the story but the movie is a delightful watch. There were many scenes in the movie which made the audience roll with laughter. The performances hold the movie together. It is Shahid’s film all the way! What Jab We Met was to Kareena, Kismat Konnection will be for Shahid!
It’s a light and breezy film, perfect for two kids out on their first date. Shahid Kapoor is the quintessential lover boy, and he proves he can axcel in comedy as well as dramatic points within the film. He proves there’s a reason that he’s been compared to Shahrukh Khan, not that he resembles him, but rather he reminds you of SRK’s nineties chocolate boy days… not to mention he’s adorable! Vidya too is excellent in her role and their much buzzed about chemistry is spot on. Pritam’s music has the golden touch.. Ai Paapi, Bakhuda Tumhi Ho, and Soniye Ve are all enjoyable.
