Love U Alia Review And Box Office Collections
Expectations were high from a director who had launched Bollywood heartthrob Deepika Padukona. Lov U Alia is about the story of a relationship guru who falls in love with a girl however cannot get her to commit to a wedding as she is scared of relationships. The movie is all about glamour and brilliant story telling. This movie is all about the relationship guru trying to woo the girl with his quick wit and smart thinking. Lov U Alia is a rollercoaster ride of emotions and drama, executed with a well powered script. The comedy is a drag and the film could have definitely done without it. This would have made the second half crispier. The main highlight of the movie is the concept of how marital discord and inflated egos can drive couples apart and what effect this has on the children of such couples. The movie goes through various agonizing phases of comedy that were uncalled for. Although the director had good intentions, the movie does not give you a feel good factor after an hour into it. The cinematography of the movie is beautiful and is one of the saving graces of the movie. The concept of the movie will make audiences wonder whether true love exists and how far can a person go to gain true love. The only thing you can say after watching this movie is never tamper with an original.
Ravichandran and Bhoomika seem extremely comfortable with their roles. Chandan is the most prolific in this romantic drama. Sadhu and Shakeela have done very little to add value to the movie as the comedy acts of the movie. One would question the decision to play Bhoomika as a dancer though. Sangeetha has a very stunning presence and emotes well. Overall, Lov U Alia is a multi starrer movie with excellent camera angles, good action and a tight screenplay.
