It is ironic that Imtiaz Ali chose to release his film Love Aaj Kal on Valentine’s Day. For, the gimmick that Valentine’s Day now stands for, it probably deserves a film like this one. Starring Sara Ali Khan, Kartik Aaryan and Randeep Hooda, Love Aaj Kal will only leave the audience heartbroken, more so if you’re an Imtiaz Ali fan.
To say that Love Aaj Kal 2020 relies heavily on Love Aaj Kal 2009 is an understatement. From screenplay to songs, Imtiaz Ali has done little to improve on the original and done more to actually ruin the Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone starrer. Actually, maybe not. Because now it is only going to make us want to go back and watch the 2009 release again.
