Ali Zafar underplays comic moments which is rarity these days, Ymai Gautam looks good, Sara Khan steals the show with funny yet seductive character
Repetitive screenplay, very thin storyline, Kirron Kher overacts, poor music, boring climax
Watch it for honest performance of lead pair
Ali Zafar looking for solo hit after disastrous 'London Paris New York' and Yami Gautam wants to extend her dream debut act of 'Vicky Donor'. Now both are back with latest offering of director E Niwas who directed 'Shool', 'Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega' and 'De Taali' long back.
Film is restricted to one home in London for most of the running time. As evident from promos, film depicts tussle in a relationship between a Pakistani boy Aman (Ali Zafar) and Indian girl Aasha (Yami Gautam). How her family members reacts after his boyfriend's nationaly comes out in the open forms majority of the pot. Then there is irritating subplot of father Anupam Kher who lost memory because Aman drops soup jar (yes you read it right) on his head.
Performance wise Ali Zafar is one dimensional and wears same expression throughout but he needs to be applauded for underplaying in a comedy film which is a rarity these days. Yami Guatam again delivers an honest performance with all the elegance. Sara Khan who plays sister of Aasha, looks seductive without even slightest of exposure or vulgarity. Kirron Kher checks patience of audience big time and shouts throughout. Anupan Kher sleepwalks (literally) in his brief role. Rest of the supporting cast is strictly average.
Music by Ali Zafar is disappointing which is shame considering his track record. Title song in end credits is waste and so is 'Palat'. Editing is crisp and cinematography is real. But real culprit is lazy screenplay and even run of the mill dialogues and situations. Story is so thin that nothing excites after first 20 minutes. Jokes are lame and everything looks stretched after a point.
But it is director E Niwas who does a lazy job though he makes comeback after so long. He never tries to play out things in bizarre way and leaves too much to actors to lift the film. Its a shame that such good performances and story go begging.
Film will release tomorrow and will face stiff competition from two other Bollywood releases and one big Hollywood release. Slim chance of survival at box office!
Go for this one if you are a fa of Ali Zafar or Yami!
