Rating: 2.5 / 5

Despite boasting a great star-cast, I didn’t find the trailer very impressive. Had the feeling that the movie might not have much to offer but was optimistic because of the brand that it was offering. Although the production quality is good, but somehow it gives a feeling of a TV series. Maybe the way it is directed gives that impression. Sadly, movie’s story also follows the same route. It’s a full on drama that so many times gave me a feeling that I’m watching a Saas Bahu saga on my idiot box. Moreover, the story was slow and didn’t have good content. There were few interesting dialogs but nowhere near to pick the movie up. Still, it had few lovely occasions that brought the amazing feel of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Another good part was that it had a nice cheerful ending that also proved that the title was apt.

Among all the big leads, it was Shefali Shah rising above everyone. She had many emotional variations to offer which she acted brilliantly. All other actors were above average and did their best according to the script. Not to forget the amazing dialogs and acting by the dog. I know it’s the scriptwriter and director who should be appreciated for this.

After an amazing stint with Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Zoya Akhtar didn’t put much effort in this. She took things for granted and expected that people will like the same movie aura again and again. Instead, this turned out to be a bad outing.

Shankar Mahadevan also went the same way as Zoya and delivered just an average music.

Overall, a full on drama movie that should be released in the form of TV Series.
