LOVESHUDA - Another poor film on the same overused plot introducing a pretty face. (Review By Bobby Sing)

‘Love stories’ have always been the most favourite subject of our Hindi filmmakers and therefore we repeatedly get served with the same old routine romantic drama played by a fresh pair, clubbed with a few catchy songs, directed by a new name vaguely expecting the film to be a surprise Hit without any noteworthy appreciable qualities to be precise.
So following the same format, taking inspiration from several Indian as well as Western hits of the past, we once again have a film forcibly called LOVESHUDA, awfully inventing a new word or term, introducing yet another ‘beauty queen’ Navneet Kaur Dhillon with a young industry boy Girish Kumar (in his second film) directed by the debutant Vaibhav Misra.
Beginning with a familiar bold sequence reminding you of films such as HANGOVER & WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS, LOVESHUDA later presents a story progression often seen in Imtiaz Ali’s romantic sagas like the recent TAMASHA, where in the first half the couple meets in a different state enjoying a foreign outing and then in the second they meet again after a gap of few years creating new confusions and dilemmas heading towards an obvious climax. Along with this typically clichéd script, here we do have a decent effort coming from cinematography and background music department trying to give the movie a different feel. But in the music section, there is another ‘new-age club version’ completely ruining ‘a classic song’ of the past giving its lyrics an entirely different meaning saying, “Aaj Phir Peene Ki Tamanna Hai”,making an irresponsible silly parody of the cult track from GUIDE.
In few words, nothing really works in this highly confused, predictable love story except the pretty girl Navneet looking gorgeous in her different outfits. Seasoned actors such as Sachin Khedekar and Tisca Chopra remain wasted in their short appearances, whereas both Girish Kumar (last seen in RAMAIYA VASTAVAIYA) and Navneet suffer majorly due to the film’s uninteresting ‘seen before’ concept and unexciting script/direction lacking the chemistry, romance and humour as required.
Overall films like LOVESHUDA certainly raise a serious question for the makers, that why even reputed production houses select such a familiar subject for their projects featuring more than one debutants, carelessly playing with their respective careers and future prospects in the industry?
Rating : 1 / 5 (including brownie points just for the debutant girl Navneet.)
