Always Kabhi Kahbi has been made with a thoughtful idea – To picture what is going on in the minds of today’s Gen-X people. But like its inconsistent and unsure title, the flick doesn’t help the audiences bring home any message. The story matures around student dilemmas and parental pressure, but it fails to strike a chord because of an amateurish writing, over packed screenplay and a substance less story.
There are four friends, who are studying in St. Mark’s school. Sameer Khanna (Ali) doesn’t able to connect with his strict father. Aishwarya’s (Giselli Monteiro) mother wants her to be into modelling when she has her own ambitions, Nandini (Zoa Morani) has working parents who don’t have time to look after her. Tariq’s (Satyajeet) father wants him to study at MIT. To put it differently, each of them belongs to a dysfunctional family, and has a typical teenage problem.
The story revolves around incidents about their good and bad doings, aspirations and more. The film tries hard to relate to today’s Gen- X people. There’re evidences of hacking, social networking sites, forums but the screenplay seems to be outdated and flaw full. The sequences are so ill jointed that sometimes one wonders what the director actually tries to highlight. However, the better thing Always Kabhi Kahbi portrays is the performance. Ali Fazal plays convincingly well, Satyajeet Dubey gives his role a perfect touch of realism. All others also prove to be quite skilled. But coming to the substance of the film, nothing really works too well to help it get a footing. Even Shah Rukh Khan's presence in a song goes wasted. Overall, Always Kabhi Kahbi is nothing but just a time pass flick.
