To Dev-Astating Effect
Here’s a man who is always in tune with the times. In his latest film, Love at Times Square, the evergreen Dev Anand plays an Indian billionaire who sees the World Trade Center come crashing down from the window of his New York apartment and decides to donate a million dollars to the Mayor’s Fund. But if you thought that’s all there is to this "contemporary love story", you are mistaken. It presents Indian sentiments in an international package. And no, that doesn’t pertain to the special song-and-dance sequence in which Salman Khan appears as himself. The tale is about three young nris in America—played by newcomers Heenee Kaushik, Shoaib Khan and Chaitanya Chaudhary—whose emotional roots go back to India.
