Director: Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru
Genre: Romance, Drama
Rank: 2.0

Sanam Teri Kasam is one movie that proves the proverb, “Too (two in this case) many cooks spoil the broth”. The movie starring Harshvardhan Rane, Mawra Hocane, Manish Choudhary, Sudesh Berry and Vijay Raaz is highly disappointing. Directed by the duo of Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru and with music by Himesh Reshamiya, the movie was released in theatres on 5th Feb 2016.
Jayram Parthasarathy (Manish Choudhary) wants his to marry off his plain Jane daughter, Saraswati (Mawra Hocane) to an IIT-IIM Tamil Brahmin graduate. However, despite his best efforts he fails leaving Saru desolate. Then one day Saru decides to get a makeover and seeks the help of her shirtless and shameless scroundel neighbor Inder Parihar (Harshvardhan Rane), as his estranged happens to be a beauty expert. As it turns out, Inder has a dark past and that he tries to forget through his numerous sexual flings and excessive alcoholism. Much to the irritation of Jayram, Inder and Saru fall in love resulting in the father disowning his daughter for choosing the wrong guy. However, an unexpected twist of fate changes the lives of all the characters.
Sanam Teri Kasam is a poorly directed movie that is based an extremely common and by now boring storyline. This over the top melodramatic film is replete with ample crying scenes to cause a headache. To add to the senselessness of the movie, Manish Choudhary has been miscast as the South Indian father, which definitely does not suit his personality in any manner. The only highlights of the film are the Pakistani newcomer Mawra Hocane and Harshavardhan Rane’s on screen chemistry and some good music by Himesh Reshamiya.
Sanam Teri Kasam is hopelessly silly and bizarre movie and IndiaCafe24 gives it a rating of 2.0 stars.
