Is Love Aaj Kal really a rip off?June 20th, 2009 - 6:24 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
While the makers of the film may not agree but their film Love Aaj Kal seems to bear a very strong resemblance to Taiwenese film, Hao De Shi Guang (Three Times).
We saw In Three Times and here is the plot of the film - The movie starts in 1911 then moves to 1966 and eventually culminates in 2005. The story of Three Times, runs in three phases. It features three chronologically separate stories of love between the two protagonists, in the first two stories, letters are crucial to the outcome; in the third, it is cell phone calls, text messages, and a computer file. Over the years between the tales, as sexual intimacy becomes more likely and words more free, communication recedes.
Now Imtiaz Ali directed Love Aaj Kal starring Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and Florence Brudenell Bruce is all about how love was perceived back in the old days compared to how it is now. The story with Saif in the turban romancing Florence is the second part in the film where love is all about innocence. The third bit has Saif and Deepika playing non-committal lovers giving into their lust and desires.
But when asked, Imtiaz however denies the resemblance by stating there are just two stories of portraying love then and now. Still the surprise package in the film as a source states is the love story of Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor as the first of the love stories.
Whatever the truth is will be finally out on July 31st. -Sampurn Media
