Kuch Naa Kaho, starring Abhishek & Aishwarya, actually boasts of a story that does not tread a run-of-the-mill path, though portions of the film are clearly ‘inspired’ by Cameron Crowe’s romantic comedy Jerry Maguire.
Kuch Naa Kaho is the story of Raj, a young man who just wants to live his own life, and Namrata, the stunning woman whose job it becomes to find Raj a suitable wife. With the help of his mischievious little friend, Adi, Raj is able to deter all Namrata’s prospects and eventually he comes to realize that it is the matchmaker herself that he has fallen in love with. However, Namrata is a woman with a history and her past complicates her future. Watch Kuch Naa Kaho to see how love, courage and character bring them together.
Kuch Naa Kaho has been in the making for quite some time, and it shows. There are scenes in which Abhishek Bachchan looks straight out of his second movie, Tera Jadoo Chal Gaya. In others he looks terribly distressed, with dark circles under his eyes [and it’s not even a crying scene!]. Aishwarya Rai looks drop-dead gorgeous in parts and harried in others. Somewhere down the line, the off-screen emotional baggage of the actors appears to have weighed down their on-screen appearance.
On the positive side, Shankar-Loy-Ehsaan’s zingy music score peps up this unusual love story. Besides its upbeat soundtrack, the genuinely funny moments between Abhishek Bachchan and a bunch of uniformed kids constitute another plus for Kuch Naa Kaho.
In a nutshell, Kuch Naa Kaho offers clean entertainment, great music and decent performances, though at an inconsistent scale.
