Aap Ki Khatir - nah, sirf Beth ki khatir










I sat through it only for Beth and her FPMBF. Otherwise this film would have gone straight out of the window after the first 30 minutes. It really is that bad.

Girl takes escort along to her sisters wedding to have him pretend to be her boyfriend. Husband-to-be´s best friend is Ex of girl whom she wants back. Turns out Ex also had something with sister. And Ex still wants sister, not girl. Oh and surprise, hired escort falls in love with girl. Some attempts at drama (Not working) Some attempts at comedy (Didn´t get it) Film khatm (Thank god).
The story is weak to begin with and editing kills the rest.
The ONLY thing that is worth watching is Akshaye Khanna. Neither Priyanka Chopra, nor Dino Morea, nor Suniel Shetty, nor Anupam Kher and for sure not Amisha Patel offer anything worthwhile. So here, for your convenience the parts you´re missing if you (please) don´t watch this film.

Amused because Priyanka does amusing things








Confused because Priyanka behaves confusing








Sad because Priyanka made him sad








Drunk and laughing because he can.








tsk, tsk, the things you do for friends....

OK you completely confused me with the plot (whatever little plot is there in this movie)

"Husband-to-be´s best friend is Ex of girl whom she wants back."

My head is going to implode. :)

@sheetal: it is. that and a bit of my best friends wedding. and the songs. well the only thing that stuck with me, was one song were all people except the three girls were dressed in warm cosy winter clothes since it was snowing...

@ggop: lets try this: the fiance (suniel) of priyankas sister(amisha) has a best friend (dino), who turns out to be priyankas ex. and she wants him back...

Sigh. I was afraid of that. But he looks so good. I have to watch it. But I can email you to commiserate aftewards, right? You're a brave woman.

This is why we all need to meet up - safety in numbers, na?

oh he looks yummi in it and he´s stealing every scene he´s in. so its (for you and me atleast) more then bearable. just don´t linger on the stuff he´s not in (especially the girls only parts)

It sounds a bit like The Wedding Date starring Debra Messing and... I don't even know. That movie wasn't worth watching either.

@TB: I havn´t seen the wedding date, but from what I remember from its trailer I feel that way too..

The question is why on earth would anyone remake The Wedding Date? I showed some co-worker's TB's Indian Superman post and they loved it, which prompted a discussion of Bollywood remakes, and they too were stunned by The Wedding Date being worthy of further attention. There are more than enough good movies to remake. Like how awesome would a Bollywood Bringing Up Baby be, with maybe Akshaye and Rani? It would be awesome. It would even make more sense, since there are actually tigers in India. Choose wisely.
