Not A Love Story Movie Review (BD)

Bollywood Dil Se Movie Review: Not A Love Story

Rating:* 1/2

Movie Information: IMDB Link

Cast: Mahie Gill, Deepak Dobriyal, Ajay Gehi, Prableen Sandhu, Zakir Hussain

Direction: Ram Gopal Verma

Genre: Drama

Duration: 2 hours

Movie Overview:

Pathetic! This was what I thought when I got out of the movie theatres. I would not be modest to criticize the movie, so do not expect many good things about the movie.

The movie is a bizarre combination of love, sex, angst, ambition and deceit. However, nothing seems to work out of it. The movie is based on the real life story of Neeraj Grover murder case, but it is a total disaster of the story.

The film is utterly disappointing in the first half, where the love story looks more of soft porn. The unconvincing screenplay and slow pace of the movie bores the viewer.

The background score by Sandip Chowta Projects (!?) literally perturbs you. The ailing sounds in the name of digital zing, does not please the ears but makes it increasingly flustering to bear the movie.

The camera angles of RGV are getting increasingly indigent with his every movie. Mr. RGV, there is a big difference between style and sensibility. Focusing on the leading lady’s curves does not make a style. Try to get inside the story rather than getting the cameras inside the leading lady’s skirts.

In the second half, we see a little glimmer where film seems to pace fast during the court room scenes and the drama starts making some sense, but bizarre (in a way, complex) ending diminish all the hopes left.

The only takeway was the performance from the leads. Mahie Gill is brilliant and Deepak Dobrial is apt. One more positive asset of the movie was the most complex and multi layered love story between the Robin (Deepak) and Anusha (Mahie); but the director says its “Not a love story” and I say “Let it be!”

Quick Review:


Good performance from Deepak Dobrial as a passionate and possesive lover and commendable performance  from Mahie as an aspiring actress. Ajay Gehi, Neil Bhoopalan and Zakhir Hussain fit the bill.

Story And Screenplay:
The story is based on real life story. The story looks interesting but inconsistant screenplay spoils it all.

Editing And Cinematography:

Editing is faulty, and cinematography is very poor.

Music And Background Score:

Music is a good deal. Woh Ek Pal and Rangeela Re sound good. Background score is horrible.


Direction is good. Ram Gopal Verma tries to create a multi layered love story but does not get it right this time.

Not a love story is an avoidable venture.

Rating:* 1/2
