Kismat Konnection Review
[Bollywood-August 2008]

Too long and too boring…Kismat Konnection is not worth your time. Even if you do sit down to watch then it becomes difficult to concentrate because it’s completely pointless. The beginning has a voice over by Shahrukh Khan about Raj Malhotra (Shahid Kapoor), who is an architect. In college, Raj was number one in everything, however, four years after winning the best-student-of-the-year trophy from his architectural college his life is full to the brim with bad luck. Every time an offer comes in his hands it just slips right out. So Raj, determined to change his kismat, soughts the help of Haseena Bano Begum (Juhi Chawla). She tells him that soon his stars will change and make everything work in his favor; but for all this to happen, Raj has first to find his lucky charm and never let go of it. His lucky charm comes in the form of Priya (Vidya Balan), when he manages to impress top builder Sanjeev Gill (Om Puri). Raj’s luck finally changes when he gets the opportunity to build a mall for him. The only problem? The reason for his luck changing and him getting this opportunity, Priya, is also the stone in his path because she favors her “precious” community center instead and is protesting against the mall. In order for his good luck charm to keep supporting him, Raj falsely promises Priya that the mall and community center will BOTH exist alongside one another.

Will Priya forgive Raj for deceiving her? Where will his new kismat ultimately lead Raj? Will Priya leave her fiance Dave Kataria (Manoj Bohra) and fall in love with Raj? Only Kismat Konnection can tell!
