I Hate Luv Storys is a boring, cliched movie, according to a bunch of critics.
Featuring the two stars Sonam ‘Flop’ Kapoor and Imran ‘Flop’ Khan, the movie opened widely today in India (it opened in the U.S. on Wednesday).
Here’s what a sample of critics has to say on this piece of junk:
[Punit] Malhotra seems to take every single cliché you can think of and insert that into his film – while pretending that this is a different love story….Along the way, there are a lot of really inane dialogues….IHLS is ultimately a very ordinary and boring.
To begin with, the story is wafer thin….Dialogues are shockingly bereft of wit, humour and realism….I couldn’t wait for it to end.
Times of India:
Thematically, I Hate Luv Storys, is extremely simplistic, uni-layered and terribly predictable.
In the end, when Jay and Simran embrace, they give off a flavour of awkward sibling-ness, not a couple who would collapse if they were kept apart another living, breathing moment. And that’s the main problem of this predictable saga, by the newest director from Dharma Productions : the lead couple does not spark enough, making the peripheral characters scurry that much harder to keep it going.
Bollywood Trade News Network (cited in Wall Street Journal):
No prizes for guessing that the film is pretty much a collage of copious famous love stories of the 90s, which were appealing at that time but don’t have much worth now.
