Plot: The movie is a Hindi romantic comedy. The movie revolves around a 50-year-old Indian man Ashish, who falls in love with a 26-year-old Indian girl Ayesha, in England. Things start to get complicated when Ashish takes Ayesha to India, to visit his ex-wife, parents and kids, for their approval.
Movie Review: The movie hits you like a splash of fresh water. It has a new storyline, and there is a novelty about everything. Rakul Preet Singh is the main reason that you would want to watch this film. You might fall in love with her during this film. Her chirpiness, freshness and sarcasm on the screen aptly represents the new generation. She has finally arrived in Bollywood with a bang and has adapted to the comedy genre well. Ajay Devgn is back to his usual straight face comic self. He has essayed the role of a 50-year-old man, which apparently is his actual age. No wonder that he has played the character to perfection with the right wit and sensibility! Tabu is as evergreen as ever. Her onscreen pairing with Ajay Devgn goes way back. She has put up a great show once again, along with Ajay Devgn. They both have rekindled their chemistry and made us feel nostalgic. Then there are performances by Jimmy Shergill, Alok Nath and Javed Jaffrey which are commendable. They add an extra humor and a new dimension to this rom-com. The movie has an amazing first half. It is full of one-liners, funny punches and amazing storyline. The second half is more towards the serious side and a bit slow. The movie keeps you glued to your seats throughout though.
The movie depicts breathtaking locations: London-England and Himachal Pradesh-India. The happening life in London, especially its rocking party scene, have been depicted in this movie. The Himalayan scenic beauty and presence of a tranquil river have been used smartly to move the script along. The movie has a near-perfect storyline. The dialogues are quick, quirky and pack a punch. The music is not so effective but is in synchronization with the movie.
Our verdict: Definitely go and watch this weekend treat. This one is a laugh riot. Almost a perfect movie. Do not miss this one, for its uncommon story and the comic capers of its leading stars.
My verdict 3.5 stars.
