On the surface, "Hamari Adhuri Kahani" might appear as another sob story, but there are reasons why it could be worth your penny.
Vidya Balan belongs to that rare crop of actors who can emote without having to say much. Last seen in "Bobby Jasoos", widely panned by critics and declared a box office dud, the exceptionally talented actress will be playing a timid wife Vasudha Prasad married to an abusive Hari (Rajkummar Rao).
Vidya Balan-Emraan Hashmi
The two make for a smouldering onscreen couple. After "Dirty Picture" and "Ghanchakkar", this would be their third film together.
Written by Mahesh Bhatt, some of the incidents in the story are based on his stepmother's life. "Vidya is outstanding in the film. It is inspired by what I saw in my step-mother. It is not based on her life but comes from an understanding that I saw in her life. I decided to inject it into the story," Bhatt said, according to PTI.
This director has given Bollywood enthusiasts memorable and unconventional love stories, even though some were left incomplete. Having delivered hits like "Aashiqui 2"and "Ek Villain" in the past, this filmmaker sure knows how to pull the crowd.
Almost every Emraan Hashmi film boasts of a soulful music album, and this one too is the same. Composed by Ami Mishra, Jeet Gannguli and Mithoon, the songs are already topping the charts. The title track and "Humnava" are two such soothing numbers.
