I, Me Aur Main: A Contemporary Tale
by G Swaminathan Bookmark and Share
 
It has become a fashion for Indian movies to present everything in the western format and culture and finally ‘claim’ or ‘show’, that in ‘heart’ they are Indians. ‘I, Me Aur Main’ represents, in a way, the mentality of the present generation who never thinks beyond themselves. The protagonist Ishaan Sabharwal (John Abraham) is a highly self centered individual who refuses to understand the other persons except to meet his own ends. Surprisingly, in this film there is a host of women characters share the frames with the hero, not all sexually involved, but in different ways to make him understand his stand is wrong. 
The story definitely is contemporary and hero here is one without any heroism. John with his strong charisma for his killer looks had donned the role of a slightly anti hero; appreciated. The writers Devika Bhagat and Juhi Chaturvedi have chosen a right theme but could have made a still taut screenplay and made the women more powerful. Anyway, right from yesteryears Zarina Wahab to present day Chitrangada Singh and Prachi Desai with other novices like Raima Sen, Mini Mathur, Sheena Shahabadi have come out with well etched characters. In their own manner, they teach some lesson to the hero. 
Kapil Sharma, the debutante director had shown his potential to deal with a tale of different nature. 
The film is worth a watch if you have the time.
