A Soul Stirring Visual Treat
8 May, 2013
Ajay Devgan’s directorial debut is definitely a movie worth watching. As a quote states, ‘Life is measured not by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away’, U Me Aur Hum is a movie filled with such tender moments. Right from the very beginning when an old man is challenged by his son to win over a lady amidst them. Thus the audiences are taken back in time to meet the leading protagonists, Dr.Ajay Mehra (Ajay Devgan) and Pia (Kajol) aboard a cruise liner. For Ajay it is love at first sight, who woos Pia with liquor chocolates and salsa lessons-very conveniently after taking a sneak peek into Pia’s personal diary. Pia, who also begins to reciprocate her feelings, leaves dejectedly when she comes to know the truth and they part ways. But love takes the upper hand and they reunite and get married. As they settle into marital bliss, tragedy strikes. Pia is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s the very same day she discovers that she is pregnant. What follows is the young couple’s journey of love and commitment. The crux of the story lies in the decisions that Ajay takes to prevent his family, his life and love from falling apart. As for the performances, Devgan and Kajol do it with finesse. Ajay Devgan oozes sincerity whether it is proposing to Pia totally drunk or breaking down on seeing his baby battling for life. Kajol is simply brilliant from the young suave woman falling for Ajay to the pathos she displays every time she loses her memory. Love has the power to win over all odds, only if we give love a chance.
