Vidya Balan and Emraan Hashmi come together to complete a story that should have best remained unfinished. It is difficult to forget Hamari Adhuri Kahani. It’s also difficult to forgive director Mohit Suri for it. Touted as a heart-wrenching tale of love and loss we definitely feel the pain. Sadly it’s of the kind that makes us cheer for the end credits.

At a reasonable 130 mins, Hamari Adhuri Kahani written by Mahesh Bhatt is said to be inspired by the love story of Bhatt’s own parents. Vidya Balan plays Vasudha – a traditional, dutiful wife sun bathing in “sanskaar” and “sabhyata”.
