The dialogues are hilarious in parts, some songs are soothing but the film, overall, doesn’t make much an impact. For the audience it attempts to win over, it’s neither novel nor path breaking content

The #NotAChickFlick is such a sham – was my afterthought after the last scene of Veere Di Wedding. And then my friend said, they should have admitted to themselves what they are making; at least then this could have been a good film. By all means VDW is watchable. Well, what’s not to like in a glossy movie like this – there are the gorgeous girls, their all-heart camaraderie and some picturesque locations. But what the film lacks is good writing. There are some moments of sheer brilliance, but they are few and far between. It is sad that this could have been a gal pal film women in India could’ve gone gaga over. But this is no Dil Chahta Hai. It’s largely mediocre, supported by a few fantastic firsts but like they say nothing works when the film doesn’t. This soul-less film is slim on laughs and all sorts of fun I was expecting. 

What worked, however, was each character. There is the commitment phobic Kalandi, played to perfection by Kareena Kapoor Khan, who wins your heart. Bebo looks a million bucks, and your heart goes out to the boisterous, independent woman who disappears beneath piles of Banarasi sarees, West Delhi ‘Malhotra’ jewellery and her relationship is somewhere sinking amidst the chaos around a ceremony which both she and her ‘husband’ don’t care much for. From struggling in ‘ feiry princess’ gown trying hard to make sense of the label of Mrs. Malhotra imposed on her, Kareena sturdily makes the emotions believable. You get her pain of being tied down and feeling lost and hopeless. And then with her is the dependable Sumeet Vyas, rightly funny with his boyish charm casting a spell. Evidently the writers centered the story around this particular character, making others quite caricaturish. 

The only other one who had any meat to her role was Sakshi Soni played by Swara Bhasker. There is a standout When Harry Met Sally’s masturbation scene which Bhasker is an absolute knockout in. The others – Sonam Kapoor and Shikha Talsania are left reaching for the crumbs. Shikha, by virtue of her screen presence, still manages to salvage the situation but Sonam’s part is an out and out raw deal. There is frankly nothing memorable about her role except for a judgment-free one-night stand she has without any brouhaha about it. 

The dialogues are hilarious in parts, some songs are soothing but the film, overall, doesn’t make much an impact. For the audience it attempts to win over, it’s neither novel nor path breaking content. For those of us who binge watch Sex And The City regularly, this is a cheap China version of everything we’ve already seen. Even as a desi version, operating from the belief system that these are real regular women we know with relatable issues – sexless marriages, over intruding in-laws, paranoid-about-shaadi parents, the narrative crawls towards a climax that looks hurried. Girls love a great love story, a happy ending we could awww for; but the union of lovers in the end don’t have that effect. There’s no one you really end up cheering for, nothing that makes you mushy. I won’t call it a waste but it’s a one-time watch, which doesn’t really require a trip to the theatres.

We rate it a 50% on the Pinkvilla Movie Meter.
