I, Me aur Main is a Bollywood romantic comedy film[2] directed by debut film director Kapil Sharma. It features John Abraham, Prachi Desai and Chitrangada Singh in lead roles. It was released on 1 March 2013 but flopped at the box office.[3][4]

Plot[edit]

Ishaan (John Abraham) a charismatic, good-looking music producer from Mumbai, lives a sheltered existence as the apple of his mother's (Zarina Wahab) eye, always protected by his elder sister Shivani (Mini Mathur). He lives with his girlfriend Anushka (Chitrangada Singh) and takes her for granted. One day Anushka kicks him out of her house due to his irresponsibility about their relationship.

His new neighbour Gauri (Prachi Desai) comes into his life, and he begins to fall in love with her. Ishaan is forced out of his company, and Gauri encourages him to start his own music company. While Ishaan is working on his music, Anushka is pregnant with his child but decides not to tell him due to him being irresponsible. Gauri gets a scholarship to Paris, and Ishaan and Gauri decide to live there after his big launch.

On the day of the launch, Anushka starts having contractions and Ishaan, realizing his responsibilities, takes Anushka to the hospital where they have a baby girl. Gauri leaves for Paris understanding what is happening. Eight months later, Ishaan and his baby girl Diya are talking to Gauri who is returning soon, while Anushska is happily married to another guy.

Release[edit]

The film was earlier expected to release in December 2012; it was pushed to March 2013.[7] The theatrical trailer was released on 28 January 2013.[5][6]

Critical reception[edit]

I, Me aur Main received mixed reviews from critics. Alisha Coelho of in.com gave 3.5 stars out of 5 and said that the movie was "proof that a movie with John Abraham as the lead can be your time and money's worth and that Bollywood can (if it tried) make love stories that don't defy common sense and good taste."[8] Nishi Tiwari for Rediff.com has given 2/5 stars and says I, Me Aur Main has its moments but falters badly with its plot.[9]

Box office[edit]

I, Me, Aur Main opened to poor collections. The film had little growth on the weekend, but the collections were still low and was eventually declared a flop.

One song from Sridevi starrer 1989 Bollywood comedy film ChaalBaaz "Na Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai" was re-created in the film. The album consists of seven tracks composed by four musicians — Sachin - Jigar, Gourov Dasgupta, Pakistani artist Falak Shabir and Raghav Sachar. Musicperk.com rated the album 7.5/10 quoting "Saajna, Naa Jaane, Darbadar (written by Mayur Puri), Meri Jaaniye are the picks of the album."[10][unreliable source?] The track "Capuchino" was a rip-off from the original song "I'm Shipping Up to Boston" and the track "Na Jaane" is a rip-off of "Part-Time Lover" a 1985 single by Stevie Wonder, from his album In Square Circle.
