Salman Khan had Maine Pyar Kiya (1989), his brother in law Aayush Sharma has a LoveYatri. There are some three decades separating the two films, so why does it feel all that time hasn't passed. That's because all the cue cards for LoveYatri are from the '90s.

Five minutes into LoveYatri, Aayush Sharma makes a dashing entry. I am reminded of Salman Khan's 2008 film Bandhan, and his famous dialogue: 'Jo jijaji bolenge, woh main karunga.' So, when the superstar's real-life jijaji, Sharma, told him that he aspired to become an actor, Khan decided to go all out and produce a film for him.

LoveYatri is the story of a Garba teacher (Yes! That's a profession, a new thing learnt) Sushrut aka Susu (Aayush Sharma) and Michelle, NRI but Desi by heart. Sushrut has no dreams of making it big, he just wants to stay connected to dance, whereas Michelle is one of the top students in her college in London.

If the Hindi film industry is ever put on trial for giving plum roles to sons, daughters and extended members of celebrity clans over outsiders with no family connections, Loveyatri will be Exhibit A. The movie features Aayush Sharma, the brother-in-law of Salman Khan, in his debut role.

LoveYatri is a 1990s film being released in 2018. Twenty years ago, Hindi cinema specialized in NRIs, Hindu festivals, Indian values, large families and strict fathers who would invariably let go of their daughter's hand and say, "Ja beta, jee le apni zindagi." LoveYatri, which until recently was called Loveratri, is basically a rehash of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. Hum Dil, which starred Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai, was visually stunning.

It's the 'ratri' (night) before Navratri and Baroda boy Sushrut (Aayush Sharma), aka Susu is ready for nine nights of dance. Described as 'ambitionless', Susu's simple life plan is to run a garba academy. His parents' frustrations do not rattle Susu's modest plans.

What can you say about a newcomer who gets called Susu in his first outing at the turnstiles. The odds get stacked heavily against Aayush Sharma right with his character's name in Loveyatri. Not that he has any spark to rescue himself from a tepid mess of this love story either.

'Susu? That's a cool name.' A character addresses the leading man thus in Loveyatri. No, it's not. It's a word which makes people, even those who've got past kindergarten level humour, snigger. For a 'hero' to go through his debut film by that name with a straight face must have taken some doing. What were the filmmakers thinking? Or were they? At all?

The whole point of LoveYatri is Salman Khan has a brother-in-law who wants to act. And if 'Bhai' can do the needful for out-of-work actors and aspiring star kids, he surely won't ignore his brother-in-law. The superstar's generosity and Aayush Sharma's good fortune may have brought about LoveYatri's existence but it doesn't translate into a credible movie.

Does love really make the world go around? LoveYatri definitely doesn't. Peddling the corny theory that Indians have been taught how to fall in love by the likes of Yash Chopra, Sooraj Barjatya and the three Bollywood Khans - yes, one character actually says that to another in a London pub of all places - this film is a litany of dour cliches.

Salman "Bhai" Khan is known to give a break to kids of his friends or co-stars. That changes with Loveyatri in which Khan presents his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma who plays a garba instructor named Susu. A terribly named hero is the least of the film's worries.

In the second half of LoveYatri, when you have already watched over 100 torturous minutes of this bland and lazy film, its hero Aayush Sharma has an epiphany. "Ye sab galat hai," he tells the leading lady Warina Hussain and quickly recounts everything that has happened in the film till then. For that brief moment, he is a stand-in for all of us - the audience.
