Now, “Always Kabhi Kabhi” is a film that pretends to be a fun film, is actually no big deal. The film was about some golden school moments and then there personal clutches. The biggest problem of this enterprise is that, it attempts everything in the span of 2 hours. It has comedy, it has drama, it has love story, and importantly half dozen of bad songs put together. But in-spite of many bad dues, “Always Kabhi Kabhi” still manages half decency.
The film resembles impair writing from the beginning. The writing goes haywire till the end comes. And the climax of the film should be awarded one of the worst. You really can’t digest the way climax proceeds. You wish to go and change the reels of this climax. In this climax one of the roles in this film stands up and shouts, “What the bloody hell is this!” You feel in raising the same way he was and join the agreement with that role. But in the 1st hour of the film, the film has its good moments. The comedy of-course works for the film apart from some tasteless humored jokes, but the love story especially of Ali Zafal and Giselli Monteiro gets on your nerves. They never makes up for a good chemistry. Instead, the less focused chemistry of Satyajit and Zoa Morani gives you some smiles. One of the main lead Ali Zafal has no acting genes in his body. He goes complete over the top in almost all cases, giving Nisha Kothari a run for money in her bad act from AAG.
Also the Shakesphere show track is badly lifted. It looks like the director is in his beset form and does paying no attention in towards the story that is going in its bad phase. The police officer demanding bribe to Ali’s character is also one such loose track. “Always Kabhi Kabhi” also has mediocre music within every few minutes, as speed breakers. The Srk’s antenna signal at ends when the film has completed and thus impact is lower!
As we mentioned before, Ali Zafal who has the most focus, fails to deliver. He tries and tries and tries but he can’t realize that he just can’t act. Giselli Monteiro’s accent definitely doesn’t suit her role, but somehow she manages to sketch a good performance. Zoa Morani as mutinous girl sparkles playing second fiddle to Giselli. But the best act comes from Satyajit Dubey who deserves to get the best part of the film, but has the junior role comparing Ali who doesn’t even deserves a role. But Satyajit makes comfortable place in your heart, and he is the big reason why “Always Kabhi Kabhi” is witness-able.
It is an average mish mash of smooth genres. There could have been so much more from this one, but they dun bring it. It has the heart in its place but after that there is no sympathy. If you are a youth, and if it really matters to you, then this might be watched.
