Kahin Hai Mera Pyar (Hindi) Rating: * A wild goose chase, this one uses the Adam and Eve metaphor (in shabby form)to justify it’s confounding premise!
Hindi Film Review
Film: Kahin Hai Mera Pyar
Cast: Sanjay Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Abhishek Sethiya, Sonia Mann, Gajendra Chauhan, Kishori Shahane
Director: Mahesh Vaijnath Doijode
A romance that revolves around a young artist and his muse born of fantasy, and the complications that arise out of that fantasy becoming real.
The film starts off with the biblical origin story of Adam and Eve, their banishment from the garden of Eden and subsequent coming together. This is the bit that is shabbily represented with terrible FX and shoddy unviable animation. It’s quite a confounding start to a traditional tale of love and just when you are wondering what it’s all about, the voiceover clarifies that just like Adam and Eve found each other following their banishment from the garden of Eden, each one of us will also find our true beloveds, albeit after some tumultuous experiences.
The young man( Abhishek Sethiya) central to this tale is an artist who suddenly experiences a creative epiphany and paints a dozen and more paintings of a woman he has never seen. It’s a given that he is in love with that dream girl. An art gallery owner(Jackie Shroff) helps him out of a crisis by selling his paintings. The buyer is an industrialist(Sanjay Kapoor) who is infatuated by a girl (Sonia Mann)who works in his office who also happens to look exactly like the girl in the painting. The artist follows the thread and traces the girl and promptly the two get romantically involved. That puts the industrialist out of the loop and thirsting for revenge.
Lacking in imagination, logic and good sense, this film drags you through insipid narration fraught with the weirdest flights of fancy. The script goes completely haywire trying to connect the Adam and Eve example to a stupid and completely incredulous tale of love. The performances are all pretty much lackluster. Music by Ravindra Jain follows the traditional pattern of a song for every occasion. But none of them catch the ear. The direction by Mahesh Vaijnath Doijode is devoid of surprises. You can of course laugh at the sheer effrontery involved in giving cinematic form to a tale that even an uneducated chaiwallah would have deemed unviable.
