Directed by Mohit Suri and produced by Mahesh Bhatt, Hamari Adhuri Kahani could not impress the critics and the film received quite a number of negative reviews.
After the launch of its trailer, Hamari Adhuri Kahani was expected to have a good start at the Box Office, but the film's business has been quite low. Now, Mahesh Bhatt, who not only produced the film but also is the writer of the movie, claims that the critics' negative reviews is responsible for Hamari Adhuri Kahani's poor performance.
In an interview, Mahesh Bhatt talked was asked about Hamari Adhuri Kahani's poor Box Office collection, to which, the film-maker made a rather philosophical statement. "The people from Bharat are loving the film but the people from India are not. So, while I have no problems with them, my only appeal to people is recognise that in one India there are many Indias and we as film-makers must be allowed the freedom to make films for as many Indias that we think exist", said Mahesh Bhatt.
Well, the concept of Bharat and India is a tricky one but it's not hard to state that Vidya Balan and Emraan Hashmi's Hamari Adhuri Kahani could not make it big, both critically as well as commercially.
