Salman Khan launches his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma as the lead in the romantic entertainer, LoveYatri. Like Aayush, the movie also launches another newbie, Warina Hussain, as the female lead. The movie also stars Ram Kapoor and Ronit Roy. Debutante Abhiraj Minawala has helmed the film. We are reviewing LoveYatri and here's what we have to say about the first half -
Susu, played by Aayush Sharma, is an aimless youngster in Gujarat, who has a fascination for Garba. That fascination has now moved to Manisha aka Michelle (Warina Hussain), a UK-returned girl who has come during Navratri to visit her relatives. It's love at first sight for Susu and after a Kal Ho Naa Ho inspired sequence, he manages to woo her with the help of his uncle and his best friends over the course of Navratri. However, their love story gets complicated when it's time for her to return and her father finds out about their relationship.

LoveYatri has an advantage. It depends on Garba music to work out the love story and who doesn't love that! But Garba can't save a film if there is a no good plot. LoveYatri has a beaten to death premise that mostly exists to serve its leading man. Aayush has a good screen presence and his dancing skills more or less compensate for his limited expressions. The film looks good, the plot not so much."
