Movie: Love Aaj Kal
Director: Imtiaz Ali
Cast: Kartik Aaryan, Sara Ali Khan and Aarushi Sharma
Back in 2009, Imtiaz Ali delivered a masterpiece with Love Aaj Kal. The film starring Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone was a rage amongst the youth telling us love two stories set in two completely different eras and showing us how different yet similar they were. Over a decade later, he continues the franchise with Saif’s daughter Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan. Kartik Aaryan plays a double role in the film as he romances Sara in the story set in the present age and Arushi Sharma is playing the heroine in past-story part.
Like the prequel, Love Aaj Kal shows us that complications of relationships that exist in today’s times and puts them in contrast with problems that couples faced in the past. Just by looking at the trailer, we are sure that Sara Ali Khan is a star in the making. Along with ravishing looks, the young star has a charming screen presence and grabs all your attention when she’s in frame. Kartik Aaryan and Arushi Sharma too seem to have done justice to their parts.
All in all, it looks like Love Aaj Kal has all the elements required from an Imtiaz Ali film and we can’t wait to catch it on the big screen come Valentine’s day.
