Boy bumps into a girl at college,they exchange a cheesy conversation,she gives him some attitude and walks away. Insulted by this act,she decides to teach the boy a lesson and slaps the evergreen ‘rape charge’ shown in the Hindi film,Dil. Sparks fly,and ultimately love blossoms. This week’s Punjabi film,Love Yoou Soniye is yet another episode from the book of romantic clichés in the Punjabi film industry. Really,is this all there is to our cinema — tasteless romance,tacky humour where sidekicks are called ‘Bunty Shunty’ and the story is insipid?

The debut film of real life couple Karanvir Bohra and Teejay Sidhu,(also the producers),Love Yoou Soniye is the story of Canada returned Loveleen (Sidhu) and Karanvir (Bohra),who meet,fight,fall in love and when they decide to marry,have the girl’s father (Shivender Mahal) at the opposing end because of a spat he’s had with Karanvir’s brother (Raghu Ram).

To make matters insufferably worse,neither Teejay nor Karanvir pass off as college goers. He gives her a wind chime and love pendent; she gives him a hug and a peck. Along with the missing chemistry,we wished for a comb to straighten Bohra’s ridiculously styled hair. While the film huffed and puffed till the interval,it gained slight speed post it,when it swings into a Hero No 1 mode with Karanvir stepping in Loveleen’s house as a chef with his hair neatly,and thankfully,tamed under a turban. Unfortunately,the film falls victim to misguided direction,and a possibly interesting twist in the story goes waste.

The one star is only for the music,the supremely entertaining supporting cast of veterens Vindu Dara Singh and Upasna Singh,and Chak De! India girl,Tanya Abrol.
