I recently caught the first look of Imraan Khan and Kareena Kapoor starrer, Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu. The movie seems to be based on yet another quirky romance story. Girl meet Boy, both get drunk and marry. Regret the decision. Spend some time together during the annulment and boom! They fall in love. Watch the trailer, that’s probably what you’ll decide. Actually, it seems like a remake of the Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher starrer, What Happens in Vegas though the filmmakers are obviously denying that.
Let’s hope Karan Johar and Shakun Batra have better sense than to mindlessly copy films from America. Indian filmmakers have a notorious reputation for lifting films, sometimes blatantly translating the dialogues as well.
More scoop on Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu:
Rahul Kapoor (played by Imraan Khan) is an unemployed architect who happens to meet Riana Braganza (played by Kareena Kapoor) on Christmas Eve. They get drunk and next thing ya know, they’re married (rings a bell?). They want to get the marriage annuled now and while they wait, few interesting things happen. They hang about here and there, romance a little every now and then…which eventually leads us to the climax – Do they fall in love?

According to an article, the Imran Khan’s character in Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu has been inspired by his real life marriage.
Guessing by KJo’s tryst with romcoms, I can wager a 500 ka note that all will go well with the movie. It will contain a few genuine laughs that you and me will be able to over some popcorn, some nice music by Amit Trivedi hopefully and loads of drama. Light hearted, funny and predictable. And commercially, it might make the cast and crew richer by a few crores.
Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu Trailer
There, that was the trailer of Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu. Sweet na? Kareena Kapoor sure is looking hot!
I’m sure though, the movie will not make any difference to Indian society in any possible way. Random thought to be put inside a post about a movie providing entertainment but I have this habit of looking for meaning behind everything.
That’s all for now. What do you think? What kind of a movie will Will Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu turn out to be? Like Anjaana Anjaani or a more believable, genuinely humourous film? Let us know your thoughts through your comments below!
