Actors: Saif Ali Khan, Ranvir Shorey, Govinda, Kalki Koechlin, Ileana D’Cruz

Rating: 2 / 5

Portrayed as a Romedy (Romantic comedy), there were at least some expectations that directors and writers will work on making it something special or unique for the viewers. But the answer is no. This is somehow made watchable due to consistent laugh ingredients that flow throughout the first half. The story has nothing to offer and rides on the same formula that has been used hundreds of times. Moviemakers have hence not kept any potential expectations from the second half. Moreover, the second half is stretched and haunts you to ponder for its ending, no matter Happy or sad. When the movie actually ends, it will certainly make you happy, but not because of it’s content but the relief that you’ll get.

Ranvir Shorey and Kalki have done excellent acting and mostly are responsible for making this movie bearable. Their small roles were directed well into the movie at proper intervals. Govinda had his fair share of dialogues that he delivered in a charming way. Saif was average but repetitive and Ileana didn’t have much to do.

I’m a decent fan of director duo Krishna Raj because of their sense of doing something different in their previous flicks such as 99 and Go Goa Gone. They had brought an impressive unique flavor every time they came together to write and direct. But it’s really disappointing that aforementioned effort was not sensed at all this time.

Sachin and Jigar were unable to make any impact this time with their music. Songs interrupted the movie badly although I had found my ways to engage into something else to liberate myself from meaningless possessions.

Overall, a pointless effort that was probably put just to satisfy producer’s fantasies.
