Raj (Ranbir Kapoor) has the uncanny habit of falling in love with different women at different times and dumping them. He falls in love with Mahi (Minissha Lamba) and dumps her. Then he falls in love with his neighbor model girl Radhika (Bipasha Basu), becomes a live-in partner and dumps her. Then he goes to Australia on an assignment and falls in love with Gayatri (Deepika Padukune) and this time he realizes that he is truly in love with her and proposes to her. Guess what? She is not the kind of girl who believes in marriage. Hence he gets dumped. That is when he realizes the pain of getting dumped by someone who you truly love. The rest of the story is all about how he apologizes to the girls dumped and how he convinces Gayatri about his love.
Ranbir Kapoor is adorable as the playboy in this film who does not believe in true love and marriage. His innocent looks make the character appear more like mischievous than cruel. Deepika Padukune is fabulous. But her fans would be disappointed as her screen time in the film is less. Bipasha Basu looks elder to Ranbir Kapoor. She looks sexy and does well. Minissha Lamba looks cute with modern outfits in the first half and she is not exciting in the traditional wear in the second half.
Story - Screenplay - direction: The basic story line appears more like that of Naa Autograph that came in Telugu. Though the premise is different, the narrative style is similar to that. The story of the film is simple. This kind of story needs an arresting screenplay. But the screenplay of the film is bad. The director could not get a grip of audiences during any part of the film.
Technical departments: Music of the film is just average except for the vintage title song. Dialogues are witty at times. Cinematography is excellent. Art work is fine. Editing is nice. Production values are very good. The locations are nice as the film is shot in 4 different countries.
Analysis: : First half of the film is alright. Second half is little boring. The only entertaining part in the second half is the way Bipasha makes Ranbir work as her assistant. The plus point of the film is casting. The negative points are screenplay and uninteresting second half. There is no emotional hook in the film that makes the audiences glued to the screen. On a whole, 'Maaf Karna Ae Haseeno' appears more of an apt title to 'Bachna Ae Haseeno' film.
