Ok, so the makers of ‘Milenge Milenge’ have led everyone to believe that their film is a success. While some may argue that how a film that nets just a little over 10 crores in its first week could be termed as a success in today’s time, especially since it stars top players like Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor, producer Boney Kapoor has a strong reasoning. After all, the film was made on a medium budget half a decade back and even if one counted the interest, the ROI (return on investment) has been gladdening.

Recently, the Chotae Nawab, Saif Ali Khan essayed the role of a very responsible dad. He indeed is a devoted boyfriend and would ‘follow’ his beau, Kareena almost anywhere, but he recently surprised the world when he achieved a greater degree of responsibility to be with his kids and his ex-office Amrita.
Hackers have probably targeted Bollywood heroines this time!
Few days back, Bollywood item girl and actress Meghna Naidu’s email id was hacked by someone and now its turn of leading actress Kareena Kapoor to fall in the trap.
Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor and his cousin, the hot actress Kareena Kapoor are among the hottest list of the actors now. Audience has been waiting for a long time to see the brother-sister sharing the big screen.
Kareena Kapoor has taken the whole responsibility of promoting the Karan Johar’s next movie We Are Family as Kajol will not be available for the same. Well, there is nothing fishy about this piece of news. It is only because Kajol is expecting her second baby and she cannot tour the country during that time.
It was a foregone conclusion that Milenge Milenge won’t have much going for it as far as critics were concerned. When even new age love stories find quite some criticism coming their way, it was impossible for Milenge Milenge to go unscathed, more so because it was a film completed half a decade back and secondly, had its reference points in Serendipity. With the lead pair (Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor) also choosing to go mum about the film, it was all left to destiny, something which augured well with the theme of the film.
Milenge Milenge: Boring
Rating: 1.5 out of 5*
Starring: Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Aarti Chabbria, Satish Shah and Delnaz Paul
Director: Satish Kaushik
Milenge Milenge is a poor rehash of John Cussack – Kate Beckinsale starrer romantic comedy Serendipity (2001) that was about destiny bringing two lovers back together. But perhaps makers Boney Kapoor and Satish Kaushik were not as lucky to quickly encash on its success as their copy took a good seven years to come on screen. In the meanwhile a small film starring TV actor Sarwar Ahuja and veteran actress Tabassum’s granddaughter Khushi titled Hum Phirr Milein Na Milein released and flopped last year carrying the same plotline.
Milenge Milenge, the much delayed movie of Boney Kapoor, has brought a smile to his face as the satellite rights of the film have fetched Rs 8.6 crore.
It is definitely good news for the producer, who had been facing a lot of problems regarding the film. Boney signed the lead actors Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor for the film in 2004, when Shahid was only four films old.
Today, if a new film starring Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor would have been announced, it would have made a huge noise for sure. However, that is missing in case of ‘Milenge Milenge’ because the stars themselves are not quite leading from the front for the film’s promotion. Shahid Kapoor is in UK shooting for ‘Mausam’ while Kareena Kapoor is off to Morocco to complete a quick schedule for ‘Agent Vinod’. Incidentally, both these films are their home productions.
