Rajkumar Santoshi has changed lanes. Known for intense, hard-hitting movies [with the sole exception of ANDAZ APNA APNA], Santoshi now attempts a room-com in AJAB PREM KI GHAZAB KAHANI, his new endeavor. In this film, the romantic moments are endearing. Most importantly, the on-screen chemistry is electrifying. Ranbir and Katrina look great together. On the flip side, the film could’ve done with a fresh plotline. When you talk of ‘Ghazab Kahani’, it has to be ghazab by all means. It shouldn’t fall prey to predictability, but the second hour succumbs to mediocrity occasionally.
        Yet, despite the blemishes, the flick is a full-on entertainer. One thing is for sure; you’d fall in prem with Prem and his antics. An ideal date movie that should connect with the youth, Prem’s (Ranbir Kapoor) fundas in life were very simple – be happy, make others happy. A case of mistaken identity leads Prem to almost kidnap Jenny (Katrina Kaif), Who was brought up by indifferent and uncaring foster parents.
Prem falls in love with Jenny, but realizes gradually that Jenny is in love with someone else [Upen Patel], the son of a conniving politician. Prem decides to sacrifice his love and get the lovers married.  
Ranbir Kapoor is the next big thing and APKGK proves it yet again. He’s charismatic, emotes exceptionally well and tickles your funny bone without making faces. It’s a fantastic performance all the way. Katrina Kaif continues to surprise. She surprised you in NEW YORK. She surprises you again in this film. She scores in both emotional and light scenes. Also, Ranbir and Katrina make a wonderful on-screen couple.
