Loveyatri


Loveyatri’ is a love story which marks the Bollywood debut of Salman Khan’s brother-in-law Aayush Sharma and Warina Hussain. It is simple love story of a desi Gujarati boy and an NRI girl. The film helmed by Abhiraj Minawala is set in Gujarat and then travels to London in chase of love. In this era where audience crave for uniqueness, we wonder how ‘Loveyatri’ bankrolled by Salman Khan will perform as it lacks the chaska.

‘Loveyatri’ is a simple, heard-before and seen-before love story between a desi boy, Susu (Aayush Sharma) who loves, sings, dances, eat and breathe garba and an NRI girl Manisha who is called Michelle in London. Ram Kapoor plays Susu's father, who loves his son from the core of his heart despite knowing that his son is good for nothing other than doing garba. Whereas Manisha is a smart girl from London. She is a daughter of a rich man of London played by Ronit Roy.

During Manisha’s visit to India, she got to meet Susu and Susu instantly fell in love with Manisha. The nine days of Navarati was his testing period and he left no stone unturned to win Manisha’s heart, who was on a short trip to India.

But like any typical 90s film, either the father of the girl or the boy turned villain, here also it is same. In ‘Loveyatri’, Manisha’s father Ronit Roy revolted and did not accept their love initially. But like any other Bollywood film, in this love drama also the girl’s father finally agrees and the dulha gets his dulhan.

Speaking about the performances, both Aayush and Warina are fine but lacks the punch. Ram Kapoor and Rohit Roy played their part well. Director Abhiraj Minawala fails to bring newness. The script played the spoilsport.

The music of the film keeps the tempo. The garba factor worked well, songs and dances were entertaining.

In the nutshell, ‘Loveyatri is not a grand watch.
