Director: Prashant Chadha
Producer: Vijay Taneja
Genre: Romance/Thriller
Rating: ** ½  
Highly publicized and highly awaited ‘Aap Kaa Surroor’: The Moviee – The Real Luv Story, starring Himesh Reshammiya as HR and Hansikaa as Riaa, is not that bad after all! May be the addition of unnecessary ‘A’s’, ‘E’s’, ‘O’s’ and ‘R’s’ in the title did the trick! 
The film doesn’t work as far as its ‘suspense quotient’ is concerned. The film grips you in the first half but as the suspense unveils you feel like an idiot! But who cares, we didn’t go to see the film, we went to see Himesh without his cap! Unfortunately ‘capless’ Himesh appears only for few minutes in the end and that too all we get to see is a side-profile of the ‘rockstar’, as he likes to call himself in the film. 
/photo.cms?msid=2164659 HR (Himesh) goes to Germany for a concert and gets trapped in a sting operation. Meanwhile he falls in love with Riaa (Hansikaa), for what reasons we have no clue. Ruby (Mallika), a lawyer in Germany is smitten by HR but he looks through her, making her his biggest enemy. Is HR really guilty or is he innocent? You’ll have to watch the film to know that. 
Himesh plays himself with ‘gurroor’ (read pride) throughout and what made us smile was his self-deprecating sense of humour. HR’s sidekick in the film Shravan says that he cannot cut HR’s nose (disgrace him) since then he won’t be able to sing at all!  
Also watch out for Himesh doing a Mithunda in the film. He is hilarious. Also the film, in spite of being a suspense thriller turns out to be a comedy, as we get to witness Himesh’s romantic side!
/photo.cms?msid=2164660 Hansikaa surprisingly performs well and looks extremely gorgeous. Fortunately, she doesn’t look 16! Mallika Sherwat has hardly any role to play.  
Music of the film is excellent. Almost all the songs are intense and hummable. ‘Tanhaiyaan’ and ‘Tera Mera Milna’ are the best though. Also watch out for Himesh singing Gayatri Mantra (with nasal twang!) You just won’t be able to get over it!
Aap Kaa Surroor is just another ‘boy-meets girl’ love story with a twist. No, we are not talking about a twist in the story. This twist happens to be Himesh himself. The ‘rock star’ acts pretty well and manages to gather few claps and whistles every time he appears on screen!
/photo.cms?msid=2164661 Don’t know how ‘RREAL IS THIS LOVVEE STTORY’ but it is definitely amusing and hilarious; after all can you get to see rickshaws in Germany otherwise?
You can definitely watch this film once. If it won’t impress you but it will definitely give you few chances here and there to laugh even when you are not supposed to!
It will keep you alive and won’t bore you for a second.
