Yami Gautam and Pulkit Samrat came together on board for the first time in Divya Khosla Kumar's Sanam Re! The film was utterly brainless but it was their off-screen chemistry which caught everyone's attention.
Rumours were rife that during the shoot of Sanam Re, the married actor Pulkit Samrat fell in love with the gorgeous Yami Gautam, and their controversial affair became one of the most important reasons for the film to emerge as a hit!
Below Are The 15 Stunning Stills Of 'Junooniyat'
Now, the duo has collaborated once again for a romantic flick, Junooniyat. So let's see what they have to offer to us or whether are they back with same typical romantic masala film, which attracts only a certain section of audiences!
Director: Vivek Agnihotri
Cast: Yami Gautam, Pulkit Samrat,
The story of the film revolves around the two characters i.e., an army officer Jahaan Bakshi (Pulkit Samrat) and a chirpy Punjabi girl Suhaani Kapoor (Yami Gautam). The duo meet during an incident, where Jahaan Bakshi rescues Suhaani and falls head over heels in love with her!
This meeting leads to a friendship, which leads to a fight, drama and ultimately a passionate love affair. But after becoming lovers, their love story takes an ugly turn and goes to an extent of obsession, which leads to heartbreaks, tears and sad song sequences and basically some more drama!
So, whether they unite or not and how, forms the crux of the story!
Coming to the performance of Yami and Pulkit, we won't be wrong if we say that their 'much-hyped' chemistry is the only backup of this typical romantic saga! Pulkit, who is famous for his over-acting has hardly improved his acting skill and yet another time, he tries hard to get into the character but alas, fails miserably!
On the other side, Yami, who can be seen in a glamorous role has done an average role and we can't blame her much, as in spite of being a lead cast in the film, she doesn't have much to offer!
They are a few intense scenes between Yami & Pulkit, which might be liked by their fans. But overall, there was hardly any striking moment between them, which you will appreciate.
However, throughout the film, Yami looks drop dead gorgeous even sans make-up!
Pulkit Samrat too, managed well to look good on-screen but what they have to understand is the fact that good looks are not going to take them anywhere! They really need to brush up their acting skills.
Not everything was bad in this film, a few were worse. We want to convey a message to all the directors out there, who claims their romantic masala flick to be an 'intense' love story; adding too many tragedy sequences and drama, won't make the shabby story look intense! It only and only bores the audiences to death!
As far as the direction of the film is concerned, it's below average. Only the music, which are little ear-wormy, a few light-hearted romantic scenes, a few romantic dialogues and the locales which are breathtaking, make the patches of this movie bearable.
If you are a die-hard fan of Pulkit Samrat or Yami Gautam, then this movie is surely for you! Otherwise, save your money and time from this 'too intense' love-story, which you won't be able to digest!
