Love Story 2050

Film

Time Out says

Bollywood’s biggest sci-fi flick is a lazy musical mishmash of every stock feature of the genre: think of it as ‘Back to the Future’ meets ‘Star Wars’ in a ‘The Fifth Element’-style world. When Aussie Indian Karan’s (Harman Baweja) girlfriend Sana (Chopra) is hit and killed by a coach in 2008, he travels in a time machine to 2050 Mumbai in order to find her.

This is because we Indians believe in reincarnation you see! Will pop star Ziesha (Chopra, again) remember her ‘lover boy’ from her previous birth? Baweja’s futuristic fable is flawed by being ridiculously long, soppy, unimaginative and consequently unengaging. Swamped with special effects the result is, like Ziesha’s robotic-talking pet teddy, a ‘Boo’.
