“Break Ke Baad” is no different from the usual romantic subjects. In fact the movie follows the same boy meets girl, they fall in love and then break their relationship only to join in the end formula. Imran Khan after a successful debut in “Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na” acted in films like “Kidnap” and “I Hate Luv Storys” which did not go well at the box-office and hence this “Break Ke Baad” is an important film in his career which will decide where he be in the second leg of his career. Deepika Padukone after a fabulous debut in “Om Shanti Om” has been choosing roles that are repetitive which means that her scope for acting keeps shrinking and this “Break Ke Baad” is not an exception to this rule.

Abhay (Imran Khan) and Aaliya (Deepika Padukone) are childhood friends who are in love with each other. Aaliya aspires to be an actress while Abhay works with his father but is so much confused in life that he does not love what he is doing. Aaliya then travels to Australia to pursue her studies and Abhay who feels that he cannot take the separation anymore coupled with a suspicion on Aaliya follows her to Australia.

This is where things turn to take a bad shape for the lovers as the differences between then grows which leads to a break-up.  Aaliya and Abhay then stay in the same beach house (different rooms though) along with Nadia (Sahana Goswami) and Cyrus (Yudhistr Urs). There is also Sharmila Tagore and Lilette Dubey who play the roles of Aaliya’s mom and Abhay’s aunt who bring the required freshness in terms of acting.

The ending is no surprise but the only saving grace of the film is the acting by its actors. The chemistry between the lead pair has gone for a toss. Sharmila Tagore, Lilette Dubey and Yudhistr Urs to name a few bring in a lot of variety in acting which makes this film watchable to an extent.

Deepika looks glamorous on screen while Imran fits to the role perfectly. Editing by Anand Subaya could have been better where lot of unwanted scenes could have been chopped at the editing table itself.

The first-half of the movie goes at a brisk pace but post-interval things loose its sheen and it turns out to be a mediocre fare. Debutant director Danish Aslam looks to have taken the base story from other romantic flicks but he has faltered in packaging the movie crisply to make it work at the box-office.

This “Break Ke Baad” is not a great entertainer.
