Tum Mile - Movie Review
After his directorial debut Jannat, director Kunal Deshmukh weaves another love story that pulls a few strings at heart. Jumbling up the two contrasting tracks - one in the scenic Cape Town (beautifully captured by Prakash Kutty's camera) and the other in a deluged Mumbai - he spins a moving yarn that never lets your interest wane during the two and quarter hours of the movie’s running time. Pritam’s hummable tunes are added bonus.But it is the lead pair of Emraan and Soha that impress the most with their nuanced performances. Bringing a certain edge to his character without ever overplaying it, Emraan does fine as Akshay, while Soha lends a sophistication to her Sanjana, a shade of which retains in the character even in the moments of panic.
The special effects may be tacky and the film at times resorts to obvious clichés like the hero saving a kid or the images of human chains, water-logged roads et al. But at its heart, ‘Tum Mile’ is a touching love saga worth the price of a ticket
