Bollywood heart-throb John Abraham makes a departure from his typical action-hunk roles to play a handsome, self-obsessed, vain music producer who learns a hard but valuable lesson about love and relationships in Reliance Entertainment’s latest rom-com I, Me Aur Main.
The charming John Abraham (Academy Award nominated film Water, Houseful 2, Force) plays Ishaan, a charismatic, strikingly handsome music producer from Mumbai. A typical city boy, Ishaan leads a sheltered life that revolves around himself and his wants and his needs.
His self-absorbed existence revolves around his mother (Zarina Wahib – My Name Is Khan, Agneepath), who rests on his every word and caters to his every whim, his over-protective elder sister Shivani (Mini Mathur) and his long-suffering girlfriend Anushka (Chitrangda Singh – Desi Boyz, Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi). Ishaan takes all the devoted women in his life for granted.
But one day his picture perfect life comes crashing down around him with sad, poignant and amusing consequences. Fed up with his flirtatious nature and being taken for granted, his girlfriend throws him out of her house. Dejected and lonely Ishaan moves into a dilapidated house and tries to make the most of his life.
He soon learns that his mother has left his father, and she promptly moves in with him. Ishaan’s female relationships go from bad to worse when his sister and best friend stop speaking to him and his new boss Beena (Raima Sen – Parineeta, Choker Bali) asks him to resign. The once macho Ishaan finds his ego severely damaged and his confidence badly shaken.
At this point, his new neighbour Gauri (Prachi Desai – Rock On, Bol Bachchan) comes into his life and creates a whirlwind of positive change for him. From her he learns the importance of relationships and valuing women. He starts taking initiatives towards mending and maintaining his past relationships. Ishaan begins to gradually fall in love with Gauri, whom he not only has romantic feelings for, but also considers a soul mate and confidant.
I, Me Aur Main is directed by debut filmmaker Kapil Sharma and features a fresh, catchy musical score by Falak Shabir, Sachin-Jigar, Gourav Dasgupta and Raghav Sachar.
I, Me Aur Main will release through Reliance Entertainment on 1st March 2013 in UK cinemas.
