    Anjaana Anjaani: All The Greatest Love Stories Are Between Strangers

    Rating: 3 out of 5*

    Starring: Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Zayed Khan, Tanvi Azmi and others

    Director: Siddharth Anand

    October 1, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): Director Sidharth Anand has come back with his latest offering that provides a unique take on the generic Rom-coms. Anjana Anjani is not your typical 'Boy Meets Girl' love story; it is unique in its own way. This is a love story between two strangers who meet under unusual circumstances and manage to find love.

    NYC boy Akash (Ranbir Kapoor) and Kiara (Priyanka Chopra) are not satisfied with their lives and want to commit suicide. The strangers come across one another during one such attempt and find out that they do not have nerves required to commit the act. So the duo plan to help each other out and become partners in death (sounds corny right?). What ensues is a 20-day road trip that takes the couple all over scenic locales all over America.

    The two characters are fed up with life and do not want to live any longer but they end up enjoying each other's company. Kiara and Akash embark on across-country trip with death as their destination but they find love instead.

    The movie is filled with a lot of comic moments, which although predictable but still manage to gather quite a few laughs from the audience. The dance tracks and song sequences are a high point of the movie. The chemistry between Priyanka and Ranbir is fantastic and they complement each other's acting. The characters are pretty believable and you will surely love the light-hearted fun of Anjana Anjani.
