Claps for: Postponing the film to avoid competition with 'Mary Kom'.
Slaps for: Losing to 'Khoobsurat' anyway.
Popcorn refill: You may want to try munching on other food items just to go with the theme of the film.
Story: Generally speaking the story of this film follows an evil plan of a Hyderabadi shoe sales girl trying to con a young man from Lucknow, who later falls in love with him. Sure, this seems fine until you decide on watching the film and realize what this simple thought has turned into.
Performances: Parineeti Chopra tried her best to play the role of a Hyderabadi girl, mostly with the accent. Though it was no breakthrough performance, we know Parineeti can do way better than this. Aditya Roy Kapur was confident playing the role of a Lucknowi Chef and had a good presence on-screen. Anupam Kher was decent in his performance as he played the role of Gulrez's (Parineeti) father in the film.
Direction: Habib Faisal struggles to play out the concept of this film and confusion follows. He failed in bringing about any kind of emotion in the film and all the attempts of doing this came across as forced. Throughout the film, it is difficult to find any high point and though he managed to catch our attention for most of the time, but only towards the loopholes in the plot.
Combo on offer:
The film offers you the following combo :
A list of questions that'll haunt you + 2 hours of good air-conditioning = Try it at your own risk
In case you're wondering, these are the questions you will ask yourself after watching the film-
-What made me pay for this?
-So, Sonam Kapoor actually starred in a better film than Parineeti Chopra?
-Was this supposed to be a love story?? A foodie film?? Social awareness about the dowry system??? An epic fail master plan????
Final Verdict: We give this film Slaps, still want to know why?
