Movie Review: Break Ke Baad (2010)

Users Rating: [ratings] ★★½☆☆
Box Office: Below Avg.

Let’s face it. Most romantic comedies are predictable to the core. You already know what’s going to happen in the end. It’s the way they are presented and their treatment is what makes or ‘breaks’ a film.We’ve seen a host of romcoms this year. I HATE LUV STORYS, AISHA and ANJAANA ANJAANI to name a few. Now, it’s BREAK KE BAAD. After JAANE TU YA JAANE NA and I HATE LUV STORYS, Imran Khan is once again part of a film which he is best suited for. It also sees Imran and Deepika being paired for the first time.

Before we get to the intricacies, BREAK KE BAAD has one of the best opening credits that we have ever seen. Right from a cinema screen to a t-shirt to steps to a terrace floor, the opening names appear innovatively, leaving a grin on your face.

Abhay Gulati and Aaliya Khan have known each other since they were four years old. Their friendship turned into love at the tender age of 15, when Abhay realises Aaliya is the girl for him.

Aaliyas life is defined by her burning desire to become an actress and she is unmindful of what or who comes in her way. Abhay who is still unsure about what he wants to do finds himself competing with Aaliyas incessant plans and projects to fulfill her dreams. While their relationship blooms because of their personality differences, the baggage because of these differences also grows silently.

Things come to a head when Aaliya decides to go to Australia to study and Abhay has to deal with the prospect of a long term relationship, secretly fearing that he will lose Aaliya forever. He takes a leap of faith and they decide to take this time off from each other to figure out what they want to do.

The choices Abhay and Aaliya make from here on tests their relationship.

2.0 “BREAK KE BAAD is an average affair which doesn’t ‘break’ new ground in romcoms.”
1.5 “BREAK KE BAAD has a vibrant Imran and Deepika as its USP, but a faulty and an unpersuasive screenplay as is its major stumbling block. Fails to impress! “
