Snapshot of the Story
“Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi” is a love of Sanjay (Uday Chopara) and a girl Anjali (Tulip Joshi) that are childhood friends. Now they are grown up and Anjali is getting married to a boyfriend Rohit (Jimmy Shergill) but Sanjay loves Anjali and believes that Anjali also loves him. Sanjay joins the wedding arrangement and try all sorts of tricks to avoid Anjali getting married to Rohit.
Sanjay (Uday Chopra) and Anjali (Tulip Joshi) are childhood friends and share some of the sweet childhood memories. However, both are grown up and live individual lives. Both has their dating partner and are happy with their relationships. Sanjay come to know that Anjali is getting married and his feeling for Anjali comes alive which he was not able to tell her until now. His goal is to break this relationship and stop Anjali getting married Rohit (Jimmy Shergill).
Sanjay is more of a family member to Anjali’s family as he tries to convince everyone that Rohit is not the right guy for Anjali and tries to brainwash everyone into thinking that she will not be happy after marriage.
Sanjay plays all sorts of tricks with Rohit and somehow manages to defame him, but Rohit comes to know the truth and takes this as a challenge. The special appearance of Shamita Shetty in Bachelor Party with item song “Sharara Sharar” was very hot and she sizzled on the dance floor. Story of “Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai” was able to engage the audience with its good pace and the tussle between Rohit and Sanjay was fun to watch.
Unsuccessful in his trick Sanjay did not manage to break Anjali and Rohit’s relationship and decides to leave, but as all Indian romantic movies have a twist in the tale Anjali feels that she loves Sanjay more than Rohit. Her heart beats for Sanjay. Two friends who spent so much time together and could not share their feelings is hard to understand. This makes the plot of the movie a little weak and not credible.
“Mere Yaar ki Shaadi Hai” is another Yash Raj Studio movie which focuses on a love story. Tulip Joshi looked gorgeous in her debut film and looked like a promising star. Bipasha Basu as Sanjay girlfriend looked good but director Sanjay Gadhavi missed the trick in casting her and clearly the talent is wasted. Jimmy Shergill did an average job as Rohit.
“Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai” is an average movie, however this is the first time when Uday Chopra looked good and proved his acting talent. The only actor who gets the mileage from the movie is Uday Chopara. Very few directors get the chance of directing Yash Raj studio movie and Sanjay Gadhvi did not let them. Sanjay Gadhvi did a superb job and was outstanding with screenplay. Music by Pritam is the soul of the movie, but could not save the sinking boat of “Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai”. Romance in the movie is the tradition of Yash Raj Studio from decades and with “Mere Yaar Ki Saadi Hai” audience expected the same intensity that they were used to but feel let down by this move.
“Mere Yaar ki Shaadi hai” bags 7 out of 10. Movie fails to score more even been with big star casts because of the somewhat artificialness of the story and fails to deliver what was expected.
Romance is a tradition with Yash Raj Studio

The extramarital affair was the part of many Bollywood movie and Bipasa Basu got a lot of attention with the bold scenes she did, especially the kissing scene on the beach setting the stage on fire. This was the time when Indian cinema was producing bold movies. Bipasha looked very hot in the movie especially her physical intimacy with John. John did a good job and was looking quite mature as an actor and making the critics frown with his strong performance.
Bipasha Basu is the new Bangla name in the list that made amstrong statement with her stunning performance in Bollywood. Bipasha joined the elite league of Kajol, Rani Mukherjee and many more that came from Bangal. John and Bipasha were dating each other from the past three years when the movie was released and one of the reasons both were very much comfortable in the love making scenes. Debutant directors Amit Saxena and Aditya Prakash Singh did a good effort in making it a hit and used the resources well. However, they could not manage to make this movie a big hit and the main reason could be that the story lacks freshness.
Jism scores 6 out of 10 for its genuine effort and presenting the soul of the story with sincerity otherwise there are many others who utilize this topic and end up making a movie that looks like an adult movie.

“Bachna Ae Haseeno” is a story of young guys Raj Sharma (Ranbir Kapoor) who does not believe in true love and flirts with many girls and plays on their emotions. One day he falls in love with a girl, but she later dumps him. Director Siddharth Anand directed his third movie for YashRaj studio worked with a very weak story written by Aditya Chopra.
Raj Sharma (played by Ranbir Kapoor) is a flirt and womanizer who loves to play with women’s feelings and then dumps them thinking he has enough out of the affair. Story goes through his different affairs starting in Europe where he meets Mahi (Minissha Lamba). She believes in true love, Raj impresses her with his poems he has written about his feelings for her and then shares a kiss. But Mahi soon comes to know that Raj is playing games with her.
Now Raj moves to Mumbai and there he gets the job as a game designer in Microsoft. In Mumbai Raj meets Radhika (Bipasha Basu), Raj forms the live-in relationship and keeps promising to get married. Raj gets an offer to move to Sydney for designing a new game and he accepts the proposal thinking that Radhika (Bipasha Basu) is a modern girl who won’t mind a breakup. But it was opposite of Raj’s expectation as Radhika (Bipasha Basu) becomes ready to sacrifice her career and move to Australia with him. Raj tries hard to avoid her, but she disagrees. Raj plays a dirty trick with Radhika (Bipasha Basu) and promise her for marriage and asks her to wait at marriage registrars office on given date, but he never turns up.
In Sydney Raj meets Gayatri (Deepika Padukone), she is a student in a business school and drives a taxi in the night. Gayatri (Deepika Padukone) is an intelligent and independent girl who doesn’t believe in commitment. Raj befriends her and finds himself in love with her. On expressing his feelings he gets rejected by Gayatri (Deepika Padukone) and learns how it feels when someone hurts you. He decides to apologize to both Mahi and Radhika and flies back to India. In the meantime, Gayatri also realizes her love for him and comes to miss him a lot. On returning from India Raj founds his house full of Gayatri’s love letters and spends no time to meet her.
The Story of Bachna Ae Haseeno revolves around Raj and his flamboyance. Romance of Minisha Lamba and Ranbir Kapoor was the best of all as they both looked good onscreen. Sadly the story is quite monotonous and after the first affair it becomes predictable. Director Siddharth Anand tried his best but could not make it a hit mainly due to the weak storyline. Vishal – Shekar created the versatile music by creating the retro version of 70’s “Bachna Ae Haseeno” by Rishi Kapoor.
