Review: ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani’ Is A Half-Cooked Melodrama & a bit of romantic

Hamari Adhuri Kahani Review

Director: Mohit Suri

Cast: Emraan Hashmi, Vidya Balan and Rajkumar Rao

Synopsis: Wife of a brutish husband, falls in love with a tycoon and rich person, who also loves her.

It happens or not? It is what HMA is all about.



Raising expectations from its trailer, no person could have predicted the storyline to be half-cooked & visually unrealistic. Though it is based on the love life story of Mahesh Bhatt’s parents and stepmother; the plot seems comparatively similar to Aashiqui 2.

Featuring the heartthrob Emraan Hashmi as Arav (the rich businessman) falling in love with a married woman (having one child) Vasudha, whose husband treats her brutally.

One of the examples of the stupidity is the dialogue – Vidya says to Emraan that, “Main Kisi Aur Ki Miliqiyat Hun” – ‘Miliqiyat’, who’ll grasp it in the first hearing. The Vasudha’s husband keeps telling her – ‘Pati Hoon Mai Tera’ – like she has just forgotten the fact.

Speaking of Vidya and Emraan Hashmi, both are underrated and not given the work of their potentials. In the role of Vasudha, Vidya Balan has performed exceptionally well while her alleged boyfriend (Hashmi) could do much more with his characters if the correct direction have been given.

The character played by Rajkumar Rao, of Hari, is extremely fabulous. It looks that the Citylights and Shahid actor has committed himself totally to the drunken character. All other supporting roles enrich the story with more fun, drama and emotional entertainment.


Looking at the previous releases of the director Mohit Suri in recent years, he has directed hit movies like Aashiqui 2 and Ek Villain.

The director has let-down the amazing opportunity of tasting success once again, but the direction of Mohit Suri is not conceivable.


The music is of that intense level that some people would come to theaters to enjoy the songs and melody of Hamari Adhuri Kahani soundtracks. Each song comes at the perfect moment, and that not only excite people, but at some moments also increases the emotions.


This is not precisely a ‘Adhuri Kahani’ but not even a well begun film that can hold the interest of the people; garnering reviews in the starting does not always mean a happy ending.

Business Prediction

Taking into consideration the first day business, which averaged about Rs 4-5 Crores (max. income from multiplexes); occupancy of 20-25%. The collections are expected to decrease a little on the next day, Saturday – 2nd day of release.

Its total box office collection would be around Rs 30-33 Crores.

In case, you have not watched the DDD (Dil Dhadakne Do) then do watch it first this weekend. Now if you have already seen DDD, you should go for HMA as a relaxation.

For Hashmi & Balan fans, no words for you! Considering his recent movies, it’s worth far more than them. Do Watch It!
