Tum Mile Review
In Tum Mile, a couple faces two storms. The storm within, when they come face to face after their breakup. The storm outside, when a natural calamity strikes Mumbai on 26th July, 2005 [unprecedented rainfall devastated Mumbai on this date].
After Jannat, director Kunal Deshmukh [KD] chooses a love story yet again. It's about an estranged couple, but the wallpaper in Tum Mile is the Mumbai floods. Naturally then, the expectations from Tum Mile are colossal, given the fact that Tum Mile is the first film that attempts to chronicle the natural calamity on celluloid, with seriousness.
Had KD limited himself to narrating the ups and downs in a live-in relationship, Tum Mile may've struck a chord. But if you're attempting a disaster movie [its promotions send out strong signals], you'd be eager to know how KD recreates the horrors of 26th July on celluloid. Let's not forget, the catastrophe is still etched in our memory and has tremendous recall-value.
