Movie Review: Tum Mile (2009)

Users Rating: [ratings] ★★½☆☆
Box Office: Flop

Tum MileIf you have been watching the promos of Tum Mile it’s pretty clear what to expect. Director Kunal Deshmukh’s second movie, Tum Mile, is a passionate, contemporary take on relationships, with the July 26 deluge as a backdrop. A word of caution here: the film is not really about the deluge but about two lovers who rediscover their love for each other in the midst of disaster.

The movie opens with two long lost lovers bumping into each other on board a flight. Immediately the plot moves six years back to the time they first met. What follows is a predictable, ‘poor boy meets rich girl’ romance. The two decide to move in together and boom! That’s where the problems begin. Ego issues similar to the ones we saw between Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta in KANK, begin to crop up. Hey, wait a minute, where’s the rain you might ask!It keeps coming and going more as a transitional element – as the story oscillates between past and present. On their way home from the airport, the estranged couple get stuck in the terrible Mumbai floods – only to rediscover their love for each other.

Average Reviews
2.5 “in case you were wishing to see Bollywood’s first movie on a natural disaster, you better not watch this film. For the romantics, however, this could be quite an entertaining watch”
Negative Reviews

Buzz 18
2.0 “is not a Bollywood Titanic, just your normal run-of-the-mill product from the Bhatts”
2.0 “You realise, while the romance and its conflicts are short-lived, this is not a disaster film at all. I mean this as much for its genre as hopefully its fate among the public”
Hindustan Times
2.0 “Buy the music and make your own movie at home, provided you’re not releasing it any time soon”
