"Uuf Kya Jadoo Mohabbat Hai"

GIRL MEETS boy, girl from richie rich family, boy with no parents (helped by kind neighbours), girl with no particular agenda in life, boy wants to build a dance academy , bad boy wants girl for himself, father helping him with a malicious plot. Tired? Of the same thing? Better not be, as long as love is what makes the world go around! But what makes this Rajshri film a bit out of the routine is the fact that the banner is trying to keep up with the changes in life and society.

The venture has been suitably jazzed up to look very stylish in many parts, the stars dressed up in the trendiest of costumes (don't care if you don't like it) good locales, a decent, albeit new lead pair who perform with a fair degree of confidence and ιlan, a hero who does not want to be a doctor, engineer or a cloth merchant, but a dancer, choreographer and teacher, a director who feels free to pick up stray ideas from many films gone by - all that go to make a film that is tolerable.

Unconditional love in all its innocence, is what this film is all about. The film is simple and unpretentious - the Rajshri's believe that this is what youngsters should be like and they have made the film with conviction.

The look of the film is very nice and everything moves according to a safe pattern that does not jolt and surprise audiences at any level. The new comers Samir Dattani (who shows a definite flair for dancing) and Pooja Kanwal have done well enough for a first venture, while Aziz as Yuva Raj shows tremendous promise. So does Mini Tiwari who plays Anna as Samir's kind neighbour girl.
