Love Aaj Kal.21

Again in a flashback, it is seen that Raghu and Leena used to meet each other secretly and how Raghu left everything for Leena and moved for her to Delhi, discontinuing his studies to be with Leena. Later, Zoe walks in on Raj and a woman, assuming she is Leena but realizes it's not the case. Raj now reveals that he left Leena for his big town fantasies. Her mother convinces Zoe that she can't possibly have both her love and career together. She goes to meet Veer's parents but leaves crying. Veer relays to Raj what Zoe did, and Raj, convinced that he influenced Zoe towards behaving this way, responds by getting her the job.

Love Aaj Kal.21

Some days later, Zoe sees Veer with another girl. Heartbroken, she hangs out with multiple people but doesn't happen to like any of them. She goes to a bar with a guy and gets drunk, but he refuses to drop her at her home. Veer picks her and drops her at her house. He says that he can't enter a relationship of compromises with Zoe and breaks up with her. The next day he informs her about a new job in the Himalayas and is leaving for two years, explaining that he has as much right to be focused on his career as does she, and bids her goodbye. Zoe gets a proposal from the Mehta family for marriage, but she refuses. When Zoe meets Raghu, he tells her that he met Leena one last time, when he realized he lost the person he was before with Leena and finds that she is pregnant. He leaves from there, gets into a cab, and goes to the airport. He adds that he still misses Leena but is helpless now. He starts crying, and Zoe comforts him. Raghu tells her that she shouldn't make the same mistake he made. Zoe leaves for the Himalayas to reunite with Veer. She sees Veer sleeping outside. She goes and lays on top of him. She says that she won't balance between love & work ever, but still, she wanted to be with him. Veer asks whether she will leap with him, to which she agrees, and they reunite.

As the story unfolds, however, it is clear that it is SARA who is filling the beats of Randeep in the story. She is the conflicted one, the faithless one, the one who is torn between his/her personal growth and a love story left behind. It is Karthik and Arushi who are ever faithful, ever patient, and eventually go away because they are driven away. This is a fascinating flip on audience expectations, that Sara can have the same ambition and sex drive and issues with commitment as a man, and that Randeep can have the same lingering misery of lost love as Sara.

I think this is a really brilliant movie about all the reasons women run from love, especially in the modern world. But I can also see the basic underlying issue that might make it not work for some viewers, the same issue there is in most Imtiaz films. He has a very particular perspective on romantic love.

Yes! Veer is an answer to all the struggling unrequited lovers, and struggling young man who are unhappy with their lives. He takes responsibility for himself, in every area. He likes a girl, so he finds her and offers her motorcycle rides and listens to her and gets to know her, and is ready for rejection. He wants a more satisfying life, so he braves uncertainty and rejects safe jobs and then goes out and finds an unsafe one that he likes. All you have to do is look beyond yourself and try to make other people happy (what does Sara want from him? What job will help people in the world?) and you will be a lot saner and happier and just over all better.

When it comes to millennials, their idea of love and its expression have evolved way beyond the boundaries and restrictions of the bygone era, thus resulting in some complications too. Love in the 21st century is both the same and different today as we are trying to reconfigure it for lives led at a very fast pace.

Since the 17th century, it's been the pursuit of love that has excited us. Back in the 80s, our parents could hardly even confess their feelings to their loved ones. Cut to the present, everything is out in the open and people are comfortable in putting snippets of their personal lives out on social media for everyone to consume.

Sara: In 2020, it doesn't matter what a male or a female side is. There are just different viewpoints about love and the basic ethos of love remains the same. I don't think it's about gender disparities anymore. It's about how present are you mentally in that relationship.

Sara: It's a shit idea. I believe the more public you go, the more it gets worse. I think love is very personal and it should be kept between two people because it would stay real and close to you.

Sara: The real answer to this question is that the more real things that you do with your loved one, the more special it's going to be. I think more than anything, eating is a very primal instinct and if you can enjoy doing that with your partner, it's very basic. If you find someone who can do this simple stuff like eating which is devoid of any glitter, it's actually great.

Sara and Kartik's latest release Love Aaj Kal 2 explores the journey of love in two different time frames and compares the obstacles of one with another. The movie has warmed up to mixed reactions from the audience and critics alike. If you're planning to catch it this weekend, check out the trailer below:

Sources also told the entertainment website, "Kartik is flexible to adjust his fees based on the genre and appeal of the film in the market. Since Sajid's film was required to be made in a certain budget, he was happy to cut down his fees. However, Shehzada is an outright commercial entertainer that can set the box office on fire and hence, he went ahead with premium charges. The producers were more than happy to accommodate his request given his popularity." It was earlier said that he reduced his fee for Sajid Nadiadwala's movie. On the other hand, his Dhamaka trailer has got immense love from the audience.

It takes an extremely brave director to remake a movie like Love Aaj Kal from 2009, specially considering that the Saif Ali Khan-Deepika Padukone starrer was met with mixed reactions at the box-office 11 years ago.But Imtiaz Ali was probably buoyed by a casting coup of sorts - the 2020 version features Saif's daughter Sara Ali Khan alongside her rumoured one-time beau Kartik Aaryan. The duo play star-crossed lovers Zoe and Veer - she is a headstrong, extremely career-driven 22-year old with a lot of emotional baggage and he, an idealist software programmer who doesn't believe in a 'compromise' relationship, like the one his parents have. Veer and Zoe in many ways seem to inhabit two different universes, so much so that their big romance just doesn't add up. In fact we have to be constantly reminded by Raghu (Randeep Hooda), the owner of the co-working space where the duo meet up, that Zoe and Veer in fact have a relationship going.The narrative structure that shifts between 1990 Udaipur and 2020 Mumbai, to showcase love across the ages, in fact only works to reinforce the message that love is never perfect, and that you have to take it warts and all and run with it. Which is a lesson that takes a tedious 2 and a half hours for Zoe to learn, and that too nudged along by an emotional Raghu, who doesn't want her to make the same mistakes he made in the past. The first flush of romance between Raghu (an extremely gauche Kartik Aaryan) and Leena (a spot on casting of newcomer Arushi Sharma) from the 90s, referred to by their friends as the 'Romeo and Juliet of Udaipur', seem much more relatable than the urban glossy interactions between Zoe and Veer. Like all Imtiaz Ali movies, the songs are pretty soulful, specially Arijit Singh's Haan Mein Galat. Sara and Veer make for a visually arresting pair on the dance floor in the Twist number, revived from the old movie.If you are a fan of Kartik Aaryan or Sara Ali Khan, there is enough of both of them to keep you hooked to the screen. Sara in particular is a gorgeous presence on screen even if most of the time she hams it up for the camera and is so over-the-top, you feel like asking her to take it easy. But for an engaging story, you would do better to look elsewhere.Love Aaj Kal serves as a superficial testimony to modern day romance - if this is what modern love looks and feels like, no thanks, we want none of it. The movie is rated 15-plus in the UAE and many of the intimate scenes between the lead couple have been chopped off leading to a slightly disjointed screenplay. Love Aaj KalDirector: Imtiaz AliCast: Sara Ali Khan, Kartik Aryan, Randeep Hooda, Arushi SharmaRating: 2.5 out of 5

Imtiaz Ali's film Love Aaj Kal is just days away from its release and lead actors Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aryan are literally leaving no stone unturned when it comes to ensuring that their film promotions too have all the opportunity to get clicked in loved-up pictures. Sure, its the same name for a film that starred Sara Ali Khan's father Saif Ali Khan in 2009 but the new version is believed to reflect new-age relationships. So PDA is a given too. From the sets of dance reality shows to the Taj Mahal, though Sara and Kartik, or should we say 'Sartik', won't comment on them being a 'jodi' in real life, do their photos tell a different story? You be the judge of that. PTI Photo

Love Aaj Kal's 2020 version stars Kartik Aryan playing two roles, namely Raghu and Veer, just like Saif Ali Khan did in the 2009 version. Playing his love interest in the two different decades in this film are Sara Ali Khan and Arushi Sharma. The film releases on Valentine's Day - February 14, 2020

In Valentine's week, love can take quite a few shapes and forms. How about some cotton candy to make a statement? Sara Ali Khan looks on as Kartik Aryan bends over the compound wall of a five-star hotel in Juhu to get some candy floss. For the record, when Mirror Online asked them about how their fans have started calling them 'Sartik', they didn't really answer the question on whether the two were a couple again. On the question of love, Kartik said, "I can't decode love. Love is something which can't be explained in words. You will have to feel it. It has to be complete." Photo by Satyajit Desai/ BCCL
