The film is about long-buried secrets that come to light when romance blossoms between a young daredevil and a beautiful woman in 1945 India.
This movie according to us is a one-time watch film, the Chemistry between Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan is the reason that keeps you engaged in the 3 Hours film
The story starts with Sonakshi Sinha (Satya) visiting a doctor who tells her that she will die in one or two years. Then in next scene Alia Bhatt’s (Roop) entry with a song will surely remind you Ashwariya Rai Bachchan’s entry in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Alia is a music lover in the film. Sonakshi visits Alia and asked her to get marry with Sonakshi’s husband Aditya Roy Kapoor (Dev Chaudhry). Roop gets ready to marry him due to her sister’s responsibility.
Roop and Dev both are not happy with their marriage and are just compromising due to their respective family pressure. One day Alia came to know about Madhuri Dixit (Bahaar Begum)an ex-prostitute and ex mujra dancer who is now a music teacher. Roop desire to learn music from Bahaar Begum and convinced everyone to allow her. There she meets Varun Dhawan (Zafar) who is a playboy and who has lived his life as a naajayaz (impermissible) or Kalank. Roop falls in love with Zafar and then the story continues with its lot of twists and turns.
In the second half, you will get bored. The film has been dragged unnecessarily.
Talking about the acting Alia Bhatt did a modest job, Varun was over the top, Aditya Roy Kapur was completely detached with his character, Sonakshi disappointed us with her role, Madhuri Dixit’s makeup and acting both was loud, and Sanjay Dutt and Kaira Advani had a small role in the film.
The cinematography, VFX, location, and artwork were very good. The movie has amazing dialogue especially, “Kuch rishte karzon ker tarah hote hain unhe nibhana nahi chukana padta hai”. And Jab kisi aur ki barbadi apni Jeet jaisi lage, toh hamse jyada barbaad koi aur nhi h is duniya me.”
Though the film struggled throughout, its music might be the only reason you would watch the film.
