Maverick Productions’ Miley Naa Miley Hum is the story of a young boy whose parents are separated and who wants them to come together again. Chirag (Chirag Paswan) is saddened since childhood by his parents’ separation. Right from his school days, he has to divide his time between his father, Siddharth Mehra (Kabir Bedi), and his mother, Shalini (Poonam Dhillon). Chirag now helps his father in his vineyard business and also helps his mother in looking after her huge business empire. Much as he tries to patch up the differences between his mom and dad, they refuse to come together and actually hate even the mention of one another’s names.
Like his dad, Chirag also loves to play tennis but his mother hates the game because the father had avoided being by her side while she was delivering Chirag as he was busy playing tennis. So as not to hurt his mother’s feelings, Chirag doesn’t let his mother know about his fondness for the game but she gets to know about it.
One day, Shalini asks Kamya (Sagarika Ghatge), the daughter of her friend, to fly from London to India as she is keen that her son gets married to her. Around the same time, Siddharth promises Chirag’s hand in marriage to Manjeet (Neeru Bajwa), the daughter of his close friend (Dalip Tahhil). Chirag likes neither of the two girls and is also aware that marrying any one of them would sadden the other parent. To get out out of the difficult situation, he lies to his parents about having a girlfriend. When asked who she is, he tells them, the girl is an upcoming model, Anishka Shrivastav (Kangna Ranaut), even though he doesn’t even know her. To keep the façade going, he has to befirend Anishka. Soon, Chirag and Anishka actually get fond of each other. What happens thereafter? Is Chirag forced to marry Kamya? Or does he have to marry Manjeet? Or is he able to convince his parents to allow him to marry Anishka? What about his game of tennis for the championship of which he had been practising? And what about his dream of seeing his parents come together again?
Miley Naa Miley Hum Review – Script Analysis
Tanveer Khan’s story is routine and lacks any novelty as films about children from broken homes have been made in the past too. Even the screenplay, penned by Tanveer Khan, Gurjeet Grewal and Girish Dhamija, relies on clichéd situations because of which the impact is missing. Chirag’s emotional turmoil is simply not felt by the audience. The scenes of the parents fighting over who Chirag would marry looks unintentionally funny. In today’s age and day, when we talk of modern families like the Mehra family, it seems ridiculous that neither Siddharth nor Shalini appreciate the fact that their son could have made up his mind to marry a girl of his own choice. Shalini and Siddharth going to Anishka, sepatarely, of course, to dissuade her from getting married to Chirag looks ridiculous, to say the least . What’s more, the writers have not cared to show what all led to the tensions between the parents, because of which the trauma of Chirag does not come across. Even Shalini’s hatred for the sport of tennis looks too forced and, what’s worse, doesn’t serve any real purpose in the scheme of things. If the intention was to draw tears in the climax, that doesn’t happen even one bit. It is also not amply clear whether Chirag declines the proposals put forth by each of his parents because he does not like the two girls or because he doesn’t want to antagonise any of his parents. In short, the script if full of gaping holes because of which the emotional appeal of a story of a broken home is completely missing. Dialogues are good at places and okay at others.
Miley Naa Miley Hum Review – Star Performances
Chirag Paswan makes a fair debut as the lead man. He looks okay and his perfromance is slightly above average. Kangna Ranaut is good. Her clumsy and unsophisticated character is enjoyable. Kabir Bedi acts ably. Poonam Dhillon impresses in a fairly lengthy role. Sagarika Ghatge gets very limited scope. She is okay. Neeru Bajwa also doesn’t have much to do but she is earnest in whatever she does. Dalip Tahhil is his usual boisterous self. Kunal Kumar acts naturally. Suresh Menon tries to be funny but is let down by inane scenes. Shweta Tiwari makes her presence felt in a sexy song-dance number.
Miley Naa Miley Hum Review – Direction & Music
Tanveer Khan’s direction is better than his commonplace script. Music (Sajid-Wajid) is appealing but the songs are not too popular. Javed Akhtar’s lyrics are easy on the lips. Baba Azmi’s cinematography is of a good standard. Raam’s editing is sharp.
Miley Naa Miley Hum Review – Komal Nahta’s Verdict
On the whole, Miley Naa Miley Hum lacks the merits to work at the box-office. It will flop at the ticket windows.
