Love Aaj Kal has simply disappointed the fans to such an extent that they went to social media platforms to request film’s director Imtiaz Ali to do better than his latest release.
Imtiaz Ali, on Friday, took to Instagram to celebrate his superhit and critically acclaimed movie Highway, which released six years ago on this day. Sharing a couple of stills from the 2014 road drama starring Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda, he wrote: “Remembering the journey… #6YearsOfHighway”.
The fans of the director, instead of praising the work of actors and director in Highway, started expressing disappointment over his latest release Love Aaj Kal.
One fan commented: “Please make you next this original and honest. Don’t mind if you take x years to come up with one. But please don’t plagiarize your own work again under any kind of pressure.”
Another fan wrote: “Please sir, make movies like Socha Na Tha, Jab We Met, Highway, Love Aaj Kal, Rockstar instead of Jab Harry Met Sejal, Love Aaj Kal 2. It is not necessary for you to make a movie every year; please wait for good script and storyline. You are a genius, no doubt about that. Love you sir, I’m your real big fan.”
Another user wrote: “… all is amiss in Love Aaj Kal – totally disappointed.”
Imtiaz is one of the biggest critically acclaimed directors of the Indian film industry. He is widely known for his introspective live stories. His previous films include Jab We Met (2007), Love Aaj Kal (2009), Rockstar (2011) and Highway (2014). All of these received critical and commercial success despite being completely different from others.
Imtiaz, however, has not been able to entertain his fans recently with his films like Tamasha (2015), Jab Harry Met Sejal (2017) and his latest, Love Aaj Kal. Viewers have complained about his films missing the magic touch of Imtiaz Ali in his new films.
Love Aaj Kal, which released on Valentine’s Day, starred Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan in essential characters. The film so far has made Rs 36 crore at the domestic box office.
