in New York. All Rajs mother wants is for Raj to get

Raj visits India for the marriage of his cousin, his Uncle (Satish
Raj into meeting some eligible girls hoping that Raj would choose one
of them for marriage. To play cupid for Raj, his Uncle chooses Namrata
someone who Raj had already hacked off earlier. Namrata works for
Raj's uncle and is also best friends with Rajs cousin sister and
almost a member of the family.
series of meetings with potential brides turn into nightmares as Raj
sneakily scares each one away.
fate would have it...Raj slowly starts falling in love with Namrata...only
to find out that Namrata is already married with a child Adi (Master
happens next? Do Raj and Namrata end up getting together.....KUCH NAA
KAHO:P..Watch and find out!
a first time director Rohan Sippy definitely knows his job and
deserves full marks for making KUCH NAA KAHO. Not only for handling a
mature subject, but for extracting commendable performances from his
entire cast and for striking a emotional chord with the viewers for
the most. He also shows his comic abilities in the first half where he
manages to tickle the viewers funny bone as the sequences with Jaspal
The film is watchable from start to end and provides great entertainment as a family romance film....
to the minus points?!. The film screenplay is bogged down by
improbabilities and scenes which just don't gel with the viewer.
some scenes have a been there/seen that feel to it and the entire
first half of the movie just drags on forever. One wishes the editor
had edited some sequences out to leave a lasting impact.
biggest loop in the movie is when Ashwariyas first husband (Arbaaz
Khan) comes back. One wonders why Namrata who is shown as a girl of
today behave like a weak person and just accepts her husband back even
though he left her for another woman for the last 7 years? Even the
climax of the movie is not entirely convincing, as Arbaaz just leaves
after an Ashwariyas outburst,, when he was so convinced earlier to get
his family back?
not for these loops in the screenplay KUCH NAA KAHO would have
been a far superior product.
there is no doubt that Sippy knows his job well and has done his
homework.Compared to say the directors of Abhisheks earlier films like
BAS ITNA SA KHWAAB
HAI, SHARARAT, and MUMBAI SE AAYA MERA DOST Sippy is leagues
One can also tell that Sippy is heavily influenced by the Yashraj candyfloss aura(KUCH KUCH HOTA HAI, CHANDNI and influence from others arr evident) and needs to break away from that mould and build his own niche.
Sippy maybe not be as good as debutant directors such as Farhan Akhtar,
Vipul Shah, John Matthew Matthan and Rakesh Om Prakash Mehra, he is
still one of the better debutant directors to come out...and with some
fine tuning he will go a LONG way.
terms of performances, the film belongs to Abhishek Bachchan. In a
restrained role Abhishek is just great. He is begining to look more
and more confident on screen. Gone is the awkwardness witnessed in his
earlier films. Be it the comic sequences in the first half, or the
emotional scenes in the latter...Abhishek Bachchan impresses
Rai is good as a solo mom. No doubt Ashwariya has a meaty role here
and she sink her teeth into it. The inconsistencies in the screenplay
weaken the impact of her character.Nevertheless Ashwariya acts with
confidence and shows her penchant in the emotional scenes.In saying
this, this is no award winning performance from Miss Rai at all.
Khan is Ok in a half baked role. He has done the "bad husband
returning" stint before in his debut film DARAAR and his
performance here is nothing in comparison.
The supporting cast is all good.Satish Shah, Suhashini Mulay, Jaspal Bhatti, Hemani Shivpuri, Tanaaz Currim and Divya Palat all play their roles well.
music is also footapping. After DIL CHAHTA HAI, the duo have
disapointed me till no end, even their ARMAAN soundtrack didnt appeal
to me except a few songs. Here their soundtrack may not be great, but
is definetly appealing. ACCHI LAGTI HO, TUMEIN AAJ MAINE JO DEKHA,
BAAT MERI SUNAIYE and the title track are all very appealing and
romantic. The picturisations of these songs are also likeable.
the film is good. V.Manikandans camerawork is vibrant, colourful and
glossy as it should be.
up KUCH NAA KAHO is easily a watchable film once, the film is not
without its fair share of flaws-specially in terms of screenplay and
editing but in the end KUCH NAA KAHO is a film which is hard to
MoviemagiK redefining entertainment!
