"Take movies, music, poetry out of life & its gone!"

U Me Aur Hum (2008) & its inspirations.

23 Mar, 2009 | Inspired Movies (Alphabetical) / U-V

Ajay Devgan’s directorial debut movie is an emotional love story partly close to "The Notebook” and partly resembling a Korean movie titled "A Moment To Remember" or "Nae Meorisokui Jiwoogae", both having released in the year 2004. Like in the English flick, Ajay's movie also starts with an old person reading out a love story to an old lady. And the story is also about a young couple who met on a cruise many years back and fell in love with each other. Later, we witness the emotional part, where the lady has "Alzheimer" disease and her memory begins to fade. This plot is quite similar to the Korean movie mentioned above. 

In fact the interesting plot of Ajay-Kajol starrer also reminded me the unforgettable romance on a ship voyage in “An Affair To Remember” (1957).
Apart from the above the Tagline of the movie was also exactly similar to that of “The Painted Veil” (2006) which goes as “Sometimes the greatest journey is the distance between the two people”.
