KARLE PYAAR KARLE is an adrenaline gushing, action packed, edgy love story of two rebels, Kabir & Preet, playing the game of life. In terms of the storyline – from their childhood Kabir and Preet indulged in playing borderline dangerous games trying to defy the fear and complexes within. In a desperate moment, eight year old Kabir indulged in an act that leads him to the doors of a juvenile home. In a bid to guard Kabir, his mother decided to leave town to escape the severe penalty. After travelling from one city to another for 12 years, the family returns to their home town where Kabir and Preet meet each other beginning a mad chapter of dares, games and fun. The film is a voyages of their unrestrained games as they discover themselves and the essence of romance. Problems rear up as though it was their destiny. Preet started believing that they are ill fated and it’s best they should stay away. Kabir firmly believed that only if they are together, will they survive. Preet willingly tore herself apart from Kabir leading them to a point of no return. But will they dare to love?
Mr. Darshan to have come up with such loathsome story that, to launch his son. The movie has been shot extensively and openly at Lavasa, Pune, Delhi, Dubai, Mumbai and Thailand. The cost-effective tight budgeting manifests brightly. Cinematography captures the pictorial locations agilely. The editing is tardy. It’s actually draining. Art direction is inelegant. In lieu of creating a raw sort of action they have come up with clumsy stunts. The direction is even more foolish, with the storyline going erratic.
The movie has also given budding musicians a chance to prove worth. But none of the five musicians have come up with even a single catch or chatbusting track. Suneel Darshan has also directed music for the film. The choreographers Rakesh Sharma and Ranju Verghese have done a proficient job in choreographing dance sequences, targeting the youth audience. The background score is uncommendable. The new bunches of actors have downright been taken for granted. Be it the debutant Shiv Darshan, who is so high and mighty carefully, thanks to the director Rajesh Pandey or the debutante Hasleen Kaur, who is photogenic , but both the leads should have performed as side actors first then they should have been working as lead actors . Watch this movie only if you’re purely bored or have nothing better to do this weekend. The movie created high expectations but did not deliver. The Bollywood Tempest awards KARLE PYAR KARLE a 3/10.
Rating: 1.5/5 stars
