MOVIE REVIEW .... 

THE GOOD

1. The plot/ pace: Once in a while a movie comes along that hits the nail right on the target- this is one such movie. The plot of the movie, that of a career- minded- ambitious wife and a stay-at-home husband, has been presented to the audience in a beautiful & elegant wrapping but the package within has been handled with just as much beauty and panache. Just when you think there is no other way to lead the movie than to indulge in same old emotional relationship drama, the very modish situations surprise you. At no point do you take the movie for granted, never does the plot slacken, and it never drags. The humor is excellent, you laugh good hearty laughs, but the dialogues impress even more- they are a series of "oh, yeah, that's how it is"- the kinds which causes the dawn of realization in not just men but women too.

2. The cast: If there is anything more impressive than the plot, it is the cast of the movie. Kareena Kapoor gets a 10 on 10 for this one- this is exactly the kind of movie that Hindi Cinema should be churning out for 35+ married film actress for these do complete justice to the talent-house that Kareena, Kajol, Rani are all about. Dilwale in comparison was a farce where Kajol is cast, but made to play half the story as her young avatar.

Arjun Kapoor- again 10/10. This ultra talented young man looks totally natural in every single scene and his chemistry with Kareena is just as natural. In real life, the two are 1985 and 1980 born respectively and in the movie they play 1985 and 1988 born. Close enough. Talking more on their chemistry, they have given some bold scenes that completely blend with the theme and the talent. Nothing about them is out of place, out of sync. Kudos to Saif Ali Khan, the real man in Kareena's real life - for accepting that his wife is a professional actress, in spite of being a Khan. 

Swarup Sampat, Rajit Kapur and all the Delhi women in the neighborhood were perfect for their respective roles.

Finally, casting Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan in a cameo role, playing themselves, was a touch of genius by the film-makers. Especially considering that Jaya is known to have given expert comments to the couples in the industry. The duo looked elegant and with stunning screen-power!

3. The look: The general look and feel of the movie- the sets, locations, characters, clothing- are all excellent, but it is the apartment that takes the award for most beautiful apartment set ever created in the history of apartment set creation in the world! The theme, the colors, the decorative ensemble- every detail takes your breath away.


THE NOT SO GOOD ..

Seriously, nothing comes to mind. Well except perhaps, Delhi's "tu"-tadaka Hindi (style of talking) didn't quite suit Kareena's sauve image, even though she is a Punjabi and plays a Delhi gal too.


AND OVERALL ...

This is a must watch with your spouse and even kids 17 years and older. There are no adult scene or dialogue per say, so younger kids will be okay to enjoy the songs and the dance. 

The movie leaves you constantly discussing various nuances of a husband-wife relationship, of the money-maker and the money-consumer relationship, and beyond too. Like I said earlier, there are many a dialogue that stumps you- for role reversal might sound predictable, but it truly jolts you into realization. 

Again, yet another perfect movie to recommend to your American friends who have been curious about Hindi films cause this one addresses all global issues in relationships as well (also see review for Kapoor & Sons). The movie is playing in many AMC theaters, so be sure to check where before recommending.
