Watch it without any expectations!

'I hate Luv story's' was one of the surprise hits of 2010 and director Punit Malhotra nailed it with his debut. All eyes are now set to see if the young director can create magic again. 
 
Kareena Kapoor Khan and Imran Khan shared a great chemistry in rom-com 'Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’ and now the two are back with a movie from the same genre, hoping to impress the audiences. 
 
Sriram (Imran Khan), a US return architect comes from a cultured family of freedom fighters; he just like any young guy confused out to have fun and does not value relationships. 
 
Sriram gets attracted to Dia (Kareena Kapoor Khan) who is a typical punjabi kudi social activist and is determined to make the world a 'better place to live'. 
 
Sriram and Dia eventually fall in love, but due to their differences, they decide to part ways.  
 
Dia finds solace in her social activities and moves to a remote village in Gujarat called Jhumli. It's only after the break-up that Sriram realizes how much he loves Dia and that's when he decides to follow her and win back her love.  
Kareena Kapoor Khan is a star and she shines brighter this time. Her vivaciousness and attitude - That's what makes the movie interesting. 
 
Kareena looks very pretty and despite being in her early 30's she manages to convincingly pull of the character of a 20-something Dia. 
 
Imran Khan is outstanding in the movie, he is in his comfort zone playing a urban boy and he pulls of the role brilliantly. His narration style is fun and adds punch to the story. 
 
Shraddha Kapoor is impressive. Anupam Kher delivers a strong performance.  Parents play an integral part and Neelu Kohli and Manoj Bakshi who play Kareena's parents are funny. Imran's parents, Sujata Kumar and Nizhalgal Ravi are decent. Vineet Kumar makes an impact. Esha Gupta looks gorgeous.               
       
Punit Malhotra's direction is impressive, his storytelling style is youthful; a reason he can find connect with today's generation. 
 
Screenplay by Punit Malhotra and Arshad Syed flows smooth and keeps you involved even though you know the outcome. Cinematography by Mahesh Limaye is striking and he captures the rural and urban India very well. 
 
Music by Vishal-Shekhar is peppy. Songs like 'Tooh' and 'Dhat Teri Ki' are party songs and 'Chingam Chabake' is a fun number. 
 
'Gori Tere Pyaar Mein' (GTPM) resorts the same formula tried by a dozen of movies since 'Maine Pyar Kiya' days, but the good part is there is no 'Ameer-Garib' or a dominating Dad or a Bullying brother in the picture. Probably that's what makes GTPM different.  
 
If in a mood for a light entertainer go watch it without any expectations.
