HUME TUMSE PYAAR KITNA is set in a backdrop of a hill station, the film follows the journey of Dhruv (Karanvir Bohra), a bookstore and a cafe owner, who falls in love with a renowned author, Ananya Tripathi (Priya Banerjee). While Dhruv is in his own world with her most of the times, Ananya is in love with a rich industrialist (Sameer Kocchar). But as time passes, his love turns into an obsession. What happens next forms the rest of the film.
While the plot is intriguing, the biggest thing the film fails to answer is the reason for Dhruv’s obsessive behaviour. While the film tries to heighten the suspense and drama, what follows, is quite predictable. The film does hold you for a while, but that’s about it.
Technically, the film is okay. Cinematography by Santosh Thundiyal is decent. Editing is okay, could have been better to heighten the thrill elements. The music in the film has no scope. The story is about three decades too late but the makers could have made something out of it, but the fail to do so. Costume design and production design is average.
Performances wise, the film is average. Karanvir Bohra is convincing to an extent and is effective. Priya Banerjee is bland and gives an okay performance. Sameer Kocchar is forgettable. The rest of the cast offer abled support.
Director Lalit Mohan who makes his debut with this film doesn’t do much to impress. His treatment of the film is outdated, just like the plot of the film.
At the box-office
The film is a non-starter!
