The mixed fan reactions that came in a while later on social media went on to show that there were quite a few who couldn’t help but draw similarities to the director’s previous films. Judging by the trailer, some claiming that the plot was similar to the original ‘Love Aaj Kal’, that starred Deepika Padukone and Sara’s dad, Saif Ali Khan in lead roles. Still, others felt that certain scenes in the film gave off ‘Tamasha’ vibes which saw Deepika share the frame with Ranbir Kapoor.
While we are sure that the films are very different, it was impossible to overlook the similarities between scenes from ‘Love Aaj Kal’ and ‘Tamasha’. From featuring some intense scenes – possibly at a café, to the lead couple enjoying a long bike ride and not to miss out the same Sepia colour tone, we have put together a few scenes that seemed like a rip off from the director’s previous film.
‘Love Aaj Kal’ that marks Sara and Kartik’s first on-screen outing, also stars Randeep Hooda and debutant Arushi Sharma in supporting roles. The film is slated to hit screens this Valentine’s Day, 14 February 2020.
