London Paris New York is the story of Lalitha (Aditi Rao Hydari) and NIkhil (Ali Zafar). These two randomly meet in London and decide to spend the day together. The rest of the film follows their journey and tells their love story as they meet again for one night in Paris and one more night in New York City.
The first thing I would like to say is, I am a complete sucker for movies like this, and I don’t know many girls that aren’t. Of course, most of us are realistic and know that things like this generally do not happen in real life. But, you can’t blame a girl for dreaming, right? With that said, I honestly enjoyed this movie. Yes, it is a story that we see time and time again: Boy meets girl. Boy and girl fall in love. Boy and girl can’t be together. Boy and girl finally decide to be together. Boy and girl get in a fight. Boy and girl make up. But the way it is told in London Paris New York is so interesting and new, you almost forget that you’ve heard it before. Ali Zafar and Aditi Rao Hydari have great chemistry and make an adorable on screen couple. Last but not least, I loved the music, especially the title track. I may or may not be listening to it as I write this, while simultaneously daydreaming about meeting a guy who falls in love with me after meeting me once. Check out what some of the other movie-goers thought of the film, as well as my reaction to the movie (while standing in TImes Square!), below.
