ANALYSIS


It is always difficult to take up such a controversial real life incident and tastefully adapt it into a movie, and it is precisely this obstacle that Ram Gopal Varma Ram Gopal Varma is a famed Indian film director an >> Read More... faces in Not A Love Story. RGV’s obsession with placing the camera in the unlikeliest of positions and loud background music is just unappealing and distracting and affects the movie negatively. Having said that, the handling of the story is engaging at certain points and attempts to (and to an extent succeeds) showcase the emotional journey that the protagonist couple goes through. But in totality, the movie falls short by quite a distance in entertaining the moviegoer.

STAR PERFORMANCES


Deepak Dobriyal and Mahie Gill who play the protagonists are decent in their portrayal of the murderer couple. They are the focus of the movie and could have capitalized on this in a much better way. Special mention to Zakir Hussain Zakir Hussain is a veteran and prominent film and >> Read More... who plays the police officer as his performance is one of the bright spots in this otherwise lackluster movie.    

WHAT’S THERE?

 RGV’s unique brand of filmmaking which can be either a positive or a negative depending on the way you look at it

  The focus on the emotional struggles of the characters

WHAT’S NOT THERE?

The dizziness-inducing camera angles and loud jarring background music make for an uncomfortable movie-watching experience.

 The lead characters don’t deliver to the extent that they could have.

Some issues are left untouched and are not dealt with in detail even though they are crucial to the plot.

VERDICT


Not A Love Story, as the name suggests, is not at all a love story but a tale of two lovers who end up murdering a man and has to suffer the consequences of it. Unless you are an avid RGV fan, it probably will not be very appealing to you.
