Irrfan and Parvathy have an easy chemistry in Qarib Qarib Singlle. Despite being so different, they seem to fit both on screen as well as off it.

Maybe because Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone clocked in a decade in the industry but this Friday’s release Qarib Qarib Singlle brought back memories of that film. Maybe it is film’s taking-a-trip slant involving exes which naturally brings back the memory. But QQS is nothing like that fluffy breezy bubblegum watch. This one has Irrfan Khan, playing Monty from Life in a Metro all over again, exuding the same effortless exuberance with finesse. Backing him up is Parvathy, who frankly is hard to take your eyes off.

He is a Dilli ka launda who comes off as an absolute chaep, she is a well-pedigreed South Indian girl who is shy and subtle. Their universes are poles apart and yet, they manage to forge a connection. The duo meets at a dating portal, followed by a coffee. Clearly, they paint such starkly different portraits of them on social media mirroring the personalities they aspire to be. But Tanuja Chandra, who returns behind the camera at the helm of things after 9 long years isn’t interested in making this a stale pale love story. This is a commercial for India tourism, as she takes us through to every nook and corner, from the chilly Bagdogra to scorching Jaipur. To her credit, she manages to tell a smooth tale of love and finding it despite stigmas and perils of living in a closed society. 

Tanuja’s screenplay lacks consistency as most of it tends to focus on Yogi (Irrfan) and his deeds and misdeeds with his exes. Since none of the side characters, including his exes are written well, at one point exhaustion seeps in. The kind of lazy writing could’ve easily been given a skip. This definitely increases the workload of the actors. Irrfan and Parvathy have an easy chemistry. Despite being so different, they seem to fit both on screen as well as off it. There’s not enough meat for them to bite on but they bring to the table, clearly their own ideas and versions of the characters. A lot of what Irrfan is in the movie, just an extension of how he is known in his personal life. 

What was disappointing here is that in times when the connotation of love has so drastically changed, where is this placed. And mostly whom is it targeting? Since the duo ends up like a couple in the midst of undergoing an arranged marriage, the fizz of the plot evaporates soon enough. There is a certain amount of evident reluctance in the relationship initially, but why would one pursue anything that doesn’t entirely convince them in case of a casual encounter. 

The first half of the movie is done well but it’s the second hour which is a tad too stretched. The writers lose plot of where they want to head with these characters, making the final scene a mish-mash of something and everything we’ve seen before. It wouldn’t be the worst thing if you miss this one, but it’s not fair to miss the opportunity of watching Irrfan pull off a Monty again. 

We rate it a 50% on our movie meter.
