A badly conceived film offering you simply nothing.
The experience of watching this latest offering from the glossy, eye catching and fashionable section (genre) of the Hindi cinema developed in the last decade, I just remembered a recent discussion with a friend about the content found in our present well designed film magazines in the market.
There was time when all the famous film magazines both in English & Hindi used to have many interesting articles on film-making, its music, the struggle of known artists, their interesting journey and much more enlightening stuff along with the usual news and gossip sections. But nowadays what we majorly get to read or see in the new-age versions of these magazines include many inviting full page photo-shoots, glamorous blow-ups and detailed discussions on the Star's fashion statements and their mismatches caught in the parties attended recently. In fact there is a big section of readers who actually buy the magazines for these major features only and get their own personal tips from the same.
Now I, ME AUR MAIN perfectly reminded me of these film magazines as I really found it just similar to them having very less in the name of content and much in the name of pretty faces, glamorous outfits and glossy outlook. Taking the inspiration for its title from the west, for me the film was one of those projects wherein a producer or director successfully manages to sign an interesting star ensemble first without having any basic script or idea in hand. And once all the artists are on board, he simply starts making a film on a single line story idea to en- cash all the young attractive faces brought together as soon as possible with a quick shooting schedule.
Strengthening the above thought, the film directed by the debutant Kapil Sharma,vaguely walks around a bold story-idea based on a live-in relationship, pre-marital sex and an unplanned pregnancy resulting in further complexities in the relationships. Interestingly the same plot has already been used in films such as KYA KEHNA and SALAAM NAMASTE with more maturity, elegance and sincerity which in nowhere to be found in I, ME AUR MAIN. The screenplay doesn't impress you at all in its two hours of duration and the narration uselessly tries to throw in many unwanted subplots which fall flat completely like the angle of Raima Sen and introduction of a new singer in the market played by Sheena Shahabadi.
The cinematographer keeps in mind the young look of the film throughout but the same cannot be said about its music which gives you nothing to enjoy as a soundtrack. Playing the lead couple, both John Abraham and Chitrangda try hard to put some life in their loosely written roles in vain. Prachi Desai does bring in some spark but that too fizzles out fast as the film progresses quite uninterestingly. However, only Mini Mathurand Zarina Wahab have something meaningful to say in their few scenes enacted naturally which lift the film slightly in its second half.
In all just choosing an unconventional theme representing the current state of relationships in the society is not enough, as you do need to put a great amount of sensitivity and emotional connect in the film in order to reach your target audience. And since I, ME AUR MAIN is not able to make than much needed connect with its viewers, relying hugely on its gorgeous faces only, you can easily give it a miss and later watch it as it gets released on Home Video if you wish.
