Bollywood’s latest source of ‘inspiration’ is the Taiwanese film ‘Three Times’ (2005). Like the original, this is a triptych of love stories set in different eras and played by the same beautiful leads (Shahid Kapur and Priyanka Chopra). It opens in 1960s Bombay with musician Govind and movie star Ruksar. The second part moves to present day England (filmed in Nottingham) with hipsters Krish and Radha. The final instalment flashes back to 1910 Punjab with locals Aradhana and Javed. The pacing is measured and it succeeds in revealing accurate comparative insights into the socio-mores of past and present Indian society that shape relationships. It manages to convey its soppy ‘fate unites true lovers in every lifetime’ message in a light unsentimental manner. Thrice!
