Aap Mujhe Achche Lagne Lageâ€ is riddled with Bollywood kitsch and banality that has been repeated countless times on the screen.The subject of two lovers standing up to the denial from their parents is anything but new and fresh.Filmâ€™s director Vikram Bhatt introduces Hrithikâ€™s character (Rohit) in a football match who is portrayed as the stereotypical beefcake hunk who does everything in a style and panache peculiar to any superhero.
Cast: Hrithik Roshan, Amisha Patel
The narrative is engaging in the beginning but loses its pace once the nine-day Navratri festival starts and the lead characters (Rohit and Sapna) begin to waffle about mere trivialities without actually confessing their love to each other â€“ thereby testing the viewersâ€™ patience to the hilt.Just about the interval time Vikram tries to rekindle the interest by adding a twist in the otherwise humdrum story.But the twist is not entirely unforeseen.Sapnaâ€™s father announces her engagement with a boy of his own choice â€“ the son of his close friend and associate in the dirty work â€“ and warns Rohit to forget his daughter and leave the city for good.
What happens next is easily predictable.Sapna leaves her fatherâ€™s home, elopes with Rohit, and begins to live in Boyâ€™s hostel (impersonating as a boy).The story seems to be completely void of any surprise element whatever.Hrithik and Amisha groove in well in their respective roles. The chemistry between them is excellent and deserves plaudits. The only thing that mars their performance is the lack of a taut script. Vikram has tried to make up for it with his sleek direction but the film remains an average fare.
