Movie Review: Miley Naa Miley Hum (2011)

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

Generally, a film designed as the launch vehicle for a new face always happens to be a love story. But romance is merely one chapter in MILEY NAA MILEY HUM. It’s all about a son’s tryst to bring his estranged parents together, in this case. Besides, writer-director Tanveer Khan integrates a sport [tennis] in the plotline, which, frankly, sets the film apart from the customary prem kahanis.

MILEY NAA MILEY HUM may not be the most engaging movie, but it has moments that tick. And it is these moments that elevate it to the watchable movie-going experience. The portions between the estranged parents [Kabir Bedi, Poonam Dhillon] hold your attention, while the under-nourished romantic track and a predictable climax [why do all films depicting a sport — PATIALA HOUSE, SPEEDY SINGHS and now this — have a happy reunion on the pitch/field?] are a compromise, from the writing point of view.

Who is most the important for a child: his father or mother, wonders little Chirag, the not-so-lucky victim of his parents’ broken marriage. Perhaps both. Reason enough for the adult Chirag to alternate months of stay with either parents… And do exactly what each wants him to do. But how long can Chirag (Chirag Paswan) put up with this? Will there ever be a common meeting point between father, mother and son?
