Love Aaj Kal 2 released today, on Valentine's Day no less, but the movie is finding it hard to feel the love. The movie is meant to be a follow-up to the first romantic drama by Imtiaz Ali's Love Aaj Kal which starred Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone. This time around, Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan, are seen on screen for the first time becoming the talk of the town.
As the film gains traction at the cinema, the movie reviews are split. In the past, Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan have both played very different characters on screen, so this will be new for their audiences. But, the love for the film isn't really catching on.
What the Critics say
The critics have all given lack-lustre for the film, praising Khan's performance but shunning the film for being boring and tired. Yet, critics like Subhash K. Jha called it an "enchanting excursion." Indian Express asked, where the heart had gone in the film?
Even though Valentine's day is a day of love, the reviews pointed at the treatment of the film for weighing the movie down. In the meantime, we had a few critics like KRK called the film, "high voltage torture." It's still the first day, but Love Aaj Kal 2 has managed to gain love and hate it seems in equal proportions. Although the film is picking up at the cinema with Valentine's Day working in its favour.
