What happens when a gorgeous woman from Venus lands up in your arms that too when you are ignored by all other women in this world! Well that out of the world jackpot happens to Ritesh Deshmukh in this movie. And the woman from the Venus is Jacqueline Fernandez.
The rom-com starts well with intro by Ritesh who is a third camera assistant to director Farah Khan. Ya, Farah khan play a cameo as her real self. We have comical guest appearances by Akshay Kumar, Priyanka Chopra, Karan Johar talking about Desh (the bollywood super star character played by Ruslaan Mumtaz) Ritesh falls in love with Desh’s sister who joins as a camera assistant to Farah Khan. When he proposes to her, she tells him that he just considered him as a best friend. Rejected and dejected, Ritesh stands alone in a Drive-in when Jacqueline lands up in his arm. He takes her to his house but hides her from her parents. Ritesh and his friend (Vishal Malhotra) names her Tara after failing to get a name from her mouth. Soon, they realize Tara is infact from Venus who has come to earth to understand the meaning of Love that has been long forgotten in their planet. She says she has got 2 days in Earth to understand love. So Ritesh suggest her to understand love by wooing Desh. Desh falls for her too. What follows is reel of romantic-comedy that makes you enjoy for most part of the movie.
Ritesh carries a boy-next-door image that is quiet heartening in this age of superstar screen presence. Jacqueline Fernandez comes throughout sporting a “toothpaste advertisement” smile. The super star character played by Desh by Ruslaan is a bad casting. Vishal Malhotra comes good as Ritesh’s friend. He is out of sync with the superstar character he plays. Though the story has no logics (but then who cares, if the movie is entertaining) the movie is enjoyable almost throughout barring some 20 minutes before climax. 20 minutes of typical Bollywood sentiments, emotions and love dialogues. Ofcourse, the movie script could have been better woven as a fantasy. It lacks creative fantasy, sequences and treads an anticipated path. But still, you can enjoy ¾ th of the movie. The designers could have thought of a better Venetian dress. As someone comments in the movie, it looked straight out of a fancy dress competition. Music by Sajid-Wajid is hummable.
GingerChai Verdict: The movie could have been made a better fantasy but still watchable, if you forgive the last 20 minutes.
