Nothing 'never seen before' about the film.

Marking Harshvardhan Rane and Mawra Hocane's Bollywood debut 'Sanam Teri Kasam' is the first release of February 2016. The film has nothing new apart from the lead stars.

Movie unfolds in a flashback pattern. Mawra, who plays Saraswati, a cultured South Indian girl is rejected by several guys for her being a boring and nerdy girl. Whereas, on the other hand Harshvardhan Rane plays Inder who lives with 'I-care-a-damn-about-the-world' attitude. And as they say opposites attract, the film too follows the same mantra.

Seems like the makers have forgotten to add their unique touch to it, as the storyline of the film is like one jig-saw puzzle. Every happening shown in the film has been done to death in Bollywood.

Coming to the cast, apart from Harshvardhan's chiseled body that has got enough amount of screen space, he still has a long way to go in the acting section. Pakistani actress Mawra still manages to make a decent arrival in Bollywood. Though she has gone a little overboard in some scenes, this pretty face will mostly manage to get another film soon in B-town. Manish Choudhari, Murli Sharma, Pyumori Mehta have done their jobs well.

Despite of the clean camera work and shot in real locations, edit fails miserably as the scenes are lengthy and dragged unnecessarily.

Overall music is decent. But nothing special that will keep you hooked to the screen. Sometimes even the loud background score kills the essence of the scene.

In a nutshell it's a same old ugly duckling story which goes on for 2 hours 35 minutes, thus we go for 1.5 stars for it.
