It's activity to be an 'ouch' moment for Dharma Productions. After the accomplished beating of I Hate Luv Storys, they accept delivered yet addition mind-numbing movie. KJo, we adulation you but let's get one affair beeline - by giving English names to Hindi movies you aren’t activity to get India’s advanced 'Café Coffee day' army or American accent-speaking alarm centre yuppies to watch your "I got Kajol-Kareena together, charge I say more"? remake, abnormally back they've already apparent the aboriginal [1998 Julia Roberts and Susan Sarandon starrer Stepmom] and admired it.
Fashion artist Shreya (Kareena Kapoor), is an aggressive and a abundant adolescent chambermaid adherent of Aman (Arjun Rampal). But afore Shreya can ally him she needs to get the accepting of Aman's accouchement from his aboriginal marriage. Enter ex-wife Maya (Kajol), who will accomplish abiding to abase and demoralise Shreya at every about-face so that back she fumbles she can guiltlessly abuse to bang a cloister adjustment adjoin Shreya black her from affair her accouchement after her supervision.
If a anxious ex-wife wasn't abundant Shreya has to accord with three affronted and aghast kids, Aleya (Aanchal Munjal), Ankush (Nominath Ginsburg) and Anjali (Diya Sonecha). Aleya actuality the earlier understands the association of a "stepmom" and is articulate about her acerbity appear Shreya. Ankush, actuality a archetypal middle-child, he is added against to the advance rather than the burglar herself. Anjali, who fancies herself as a magician, doesn’t absolutely affliction as continued as she gets to beachcomber her abracadabra baton and eat ice-cream.
"You're a abandoned witch", "You accouchement are monsters", "You can never be mom-type" and all the agnate acrimonious jibes and algid accordance abide till Maya is on her afterlife bed… And the absolute ancestors bonds calm in a fresh configuration.
Director Siddharth Malhotra could accept taken this cine to a accomplished fresh akin by application awful burnable (read: talented) Kajol-Kareena admixture to accord atomic performances on the screen. But acutely he doesn’t. Their will-they-or-won’t-they badinage is agreeable but not entertaining. And who wrote the dialogues like, "D for Dyan (witch)" and "Hamesha Forever", and did we acknowledgment "Hamesha Forever"?
As for the performances, Kajol as a "OMG, I don’t appetite to die" agitated and arrant mom can accomplish your airheaded lose its crunchiness. And did Arjun absolutely accept the filmmakers back they told him they won’t accede his role? Anyway his short(changed) role was like the song 'Something article Jailhouse Rock' – lame.
That leaves us with Bebo. And booty a abysmal animation afore you apprehend this, Kajol may get a accede for her affecting assuming of a dying woman but the bright champ is Kareena Kapoor for her role of an absolute fashionista entering familyville.
If you absence this cine for some reason, be assured you won't be missing much.
P.S: If We Are Ancestors is all about family, again how appear they don't accept a ancestors name?
