Hope Aur Hum Reviews and Ratings
Hope Aur Hum doesn’t believe in subtlety when it comes to drumming home its message of old giving way to the new, saddling Naseeruddin Shah with the burden of making audiences hope that, surely, there is something better around the corner.
Everything old is eventually replaced by something new, and it’s best to adapt. Whether it is an ancient photocopier or a big old house. This is a lesson that this small feel-good family film that has the heart in its right place brings on the big screen. They try really hard and even though little scenes from the film are good, the film drags on and on and you wish it should have been made for TV movie instead.
The film boasts of moderate production values. The background score by Rupert Fernandez is bright and chirpy. The songs; “Aache bachche rote nahin” and “Aye Zindagi” snuggly mesh into the narrative.
Overall, the film is slight too flat and straight.
