Tum Mile

A lacklustre film in which the many lulls help overshadow the few storms

Starring: Emraan Hashmi, Soha Ali Khan
Directed by Kunal Deshmukh
Rating: *

The posters and trailers have helped construct a careful lie. Tum Mile is not a disaster movie. The floods that paralysed Mumbai in 2005 are nothing more than forgettable wallpaper that provides neither background nor backdrop. Rather than rainy Mumbai, almost two-thirds of the film is shot in sunny Cape Town, where Akshay (Emraan Hashmi) is tangled in a live-in relationship with Sanjana (Soha Ali Khan). He’s a struggling artist who predictably lacks all commercial acumen and spends much of his time sulking on the edge of unfinished highways. She’s a green hack who campaigns for offices to turn off their lights at night but drives a slick Audi convertible.
