Now this is one movie that I’ve wanted to watch since the time I saw the promotionary tweets on Twitter. And so, I happily ganged up my bunch of super-cool buddies and ran to PVR Phoenix to catch up on my favourite celeb’s latest flick.
It’s my first movie review. So, please don’t pull that trigger at me when you read it.
The movie starts off with a scene at a mental asylum in London. Yes, Manu thinks that Tanu has got bipolar disorder. And Tanu thinks Manu no longer loves her. The classic set for an ideal divorce. She quite happily leaves Manu to live a lunatic’s life as she walks away back to India, happily telling anyone within earshot that her hubby is in a Mental Asylum.
But, the sweetheart in her, regrets this decision the moment she buckles on her belt in the aircraft. Pappi is then sent to save Manu from the asylum. And the moment Manu comes back to India, the divorce proceedings start, in albeit a funny manner. Rephrase: A supremely rolling on the floor manner. But, unlike most Desi Romances, the route to the end cannot be easily predicted as you watch the 26 frames move per second. Yet, it ends in a perfectly blissful way, just like true Desi Love.
I don’t wanna reveal more about the plot (I can already see the butts of those guns poking out of our pocket). But I must say, Tanu and Manu have done a superb job of their roles. Tanu, with the right amount of spunk and choice gaalis delivered at perfect moments throughout, dazzles with her double role of Kusum, somewhat similar in the spunk and choice gaalis part. Tanu and Kusum may seem to be similar, but I can surely tell you: the difference in the mental built of both of these characters is too huge. And this difference, not shallow like the difference between the hairstyles, is way deep. And Kangana Ranaut, as usual, in her Queen style, brought out the distinct personalities of these two characters like a pro! Love you, Kangana!
What can I say about our dear Maddy? You played your role of divorced-man-searching-for-new-love-but-lost-the-battle amazingly! At that scene, in which Tanu asks Manu if he still thinks about her, I was so damn sure he would say yes. But the twist in the plot. Amazing is not a word. Fabulus, more like it!
The supporting roles of Pappi (total-kickass-sidekick), Raja (total-mavvali-bhai), Jassi (lassi-piyo-zindagi-jiyo-Punjabi-munda), Payal (I-can-help-you-in-your-life-but-can’t-figure-out-my-own bestie!), Chintu (jobless-advocate) are just perfect. The music.. Hahahaha.. Lovely! “Old School Gal” is too hilarious.. “Ghani Bawri” *_*.. “Ho Gaya Hai Pyaar” **_**..!
Do watch this movie if you’re still procrastinating. I assure you, full on paisa-vasool! Total entertainer! If I still haven’t managed to convince you, here’s a review
