If you have watched Hollywood movies “Before Sunrise” and “Before Sunset” starring Ethan Hawke then you couldn’t enjoy much Bollywood film London, Paris, New York. There’s no doubt in this thing that many Bollywood movies are copy versions of Hollywood ones even some film directors copy scenes and dialogues as they are.
But if you view London, Paris, New York without seeing Before Sunrise and Before Sunset then you would love the movie. Anu Menon is screenwriter and director. She tried to give an Eastern touch to both western stories and combined them in an happy ending. That is positive thing she did. I appreciate her for postive change or modification by her. Main thing you can appreciate and admire about Bollywood romantic movies that most of them have happy endings. But on the other hand Hollywood filmmakers do their best to make people cry. You can check that here Why Most of Romantic Movies Have Sad Endings
Both Hollywood movies Before Sunrise and Before Sunset have not happy endings and it sucks. London, Paris, New York songs are not that nice even a singer who is Ali Zafar from Pakistsn played leading role. The movie better defines complicated nature of a woman because script writer and film director is a woman herself so she better knows that what women want. But still I loved that romantic drama because even it has a happy ending. No confusion or much complication.
Jesse and Celine meet in Vienna, Austria and in other story they meet in Paris. In Bollywood movie London, Paris, New York situations change and get different locations. First Nikhil and Lalitha meet in London then Paris and story ends with their meeting in New York.Whatever but London, Paris, New York is a great romantic movie. Pakistani handsome actor and singer Ali Zafar played his role awesomely.
