Aziz Mirza's Kismat Konnection is not even remotely connected to your entertainment needs. If Contract appears unrealistic in its starkness, this one is just as false in its glitz. To cut it short, we're in an NRI world of Raj Malhotra who lives in Canada, only among Batra, Gill and Mehras. Everyone speaks Hindi, even if the character is gora. You get the picture. But it's another ball game to make this fun. There is only joylessness around here, not just on the screen, but more importantly, on the screenplay, and in its dull writing. Raj Malhotra, the stud-boy of his college, is now a failing architect. The boy talks to God and believes in kismet. He finds an occultist called Haseena Bano Jaan, or some such. She guides him to a lucky charm. This is a girl he bumps into quite often, that's Vidya Balan. Theirs, you'll think, is supposed to be a romantic story, a love triangle where the third one is a hurtful philanderer. Except you can't tell any romance between the lead couple anyway. The film you may believe is about the rise of this boy, as he takes up tough loans for his first design assignment. All those portions are forgotten somewhere along as well. You then feel this film is probably about a mall coming up that will take away an old-age home. This is a premise from Aziz Mirza's Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman or even Lage Raho Munnabhai. You learn that isn't the film either. In fact there are very few movies such as these that have absolutely nothing to say, and take up so much of your time doing just that. Somewhere I think I even heard the words global warming too. What remains then are merely some fake moments!
