Movie Review: Koel is Jenny. Hiran is Prem. Sujit Guha tries doing a Rajkumar Santoshi. And together they team up to tell the “Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani”, but this time, in shuddh Bengali. While the main ingredient comes from this Santoshi film, the garnishing is thrown in by a “Love Aaj Kal” or even a “Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin”.
To tell it in Bengali then, Koel’s Diya comes to visit her dad in India, when suddenly, she finds her marriage being fixed with the son of her dad’s friend. On the other hand, Rahul, essayed by Hiran, wants to help one of his friend, Hrithik (NK Salil), to get his love, also by the name of Diya. The gang of friends, who are also members of Mone Je Kore Uru Uru club, decide to kidnap Hrithik’s Diya but end up nabbing the other Diya. Happy to have escaped her nuptials, Diya now wants Rahul to help her reach Darjeeling.
By this time, however, Rahul too is happy with the fact that he is getting to spend time with the girl of his dreams. Unfortunately, he can never profess his love to her. As luck would have it, Diya wishes Rahul to convince her dad about her affair with an NRI from London, Vicky. In almost true Ranbir style, Hiran, does his “best friend” bit till, of course, Diya realizes that Rahul is the man that she wants to spend the rest of her life with.
Even though one can draw parallels to “APKGK”, “Mon Je…” is not too bad a watch. Koel’s bubbly, chirpy act and her transformation towards the end, holds attention. Hiran, definitely has improved since his last, which was quite some time back. That the actor is taking his gym hours seriously comes through in his physique. Laboni and Biswajit prove once again that they are actors of repute.
What also makes for an interesting watch is the smart packaging apart from Kumud Verma’s cinematography. While Baba Yadav’s choreography would make you want to shake a leg, Jeet Gannguli’s compositions remain long after you’ve left the theatre. Starting from the title track to the “Tor pirite”, to “Hai Rabba”, each number stands apart for its sheer variety. Forget the inspiration bit. Go for “Mon Je…” if you are in love or would love to find the true meaning of it.
