Production

Kismat Konnection (in other words "Connection of Fate") was previously titled Lucky Charm. Kapoor and Balan began shooting for the film in Toronto, Canada and later continued in Mumbai.[2] Actress Juhi Chawla played the role of a gypsy fortune-teller dressed in typical colorful bright attire.[2]

Kismat Konnection is said to be inspired by the Hollywood film, Just My Luck which stars Lindsay Lohan and Chris Pine.

Synopsis

This is a story about an architect Raj Malhotra. While he was a top student in his school and college days, he is not having much luck finding work, clients or projects. All he does seems to go wrong. Raj goes to a gypsy named Haseena Bano Jann who advises him that his luck is not good and he needs a lucky charm or a person who can change his life. Afterwards, he meets Priya who is ready to help others by trying to save a community center. Although they do not get along at first, Raj eventually realizes that she is his lucky charm. Priya ends up helping Raj through sticky situations and Raj eventually figures out that she is, in fact, changing his life. Knowing that, Raj lies to Priya by telling her that he will help her save the community center, but instead he is trying to build a shopping mall there so he can finally be recognised as an architect. Later Priya finds out the truth and is really upset. To make up for his lie, Raj sells everything he has and not caring about his job he proposes a plan to save the community center and ends up winning Priya's love and admiration. After Priya and Raj get together, Raj's life changes and he becomes prosperous.

Cast

Critical reception

The film received an average rating of 3 out of 5 from the critics [3]. "A simple romantic Kismat Konnection", "which could have been a good romantic comedy, but lack of good one liners, a bit lengthy second half, typical climax makes it fairly average." However Taran Adarsh gave the movie 3 out of 5 calling it a simple and sweet film. He also said the performances by Shahid and Vidya are done very neatly. Noyon Jyoti Parasara of AOL.in also rated it 3.5 out of 5 and said, "Overall, Kismat Konnection bears the stamp of typical Aziz Mirza film. It's not a great story or an extraordinary film. But it's a nice, cute and emotional movie."[1]
