Review: Wait to be seated, in the meanwhile take a look at the menu tonight. The portions are large, so everything is served one by two. In the ‘Specials’ we have a daringly different product of Bollywood, Abhay Deol. With a storyline that wants to leap out of mundane romcoms. Some spark of comedy, some feathery feel-good scenes. And some good music (Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy) for the hungry soul. We’ll come back to what’s ‘not hot’ on the menu, for now let’s dig in.
Debutante Devika’s concept might look good on paper, but onscreen it dissipates like diarrhoea. Strung with a few laughable scenes, it scrambles around with too many plots crafted like episodic sitcoms. It intends to reflect the psyche of the ‘wuzdat’ generation but quickly crumbles like an out-of-love, casual sex relationship. Abhay is good in his part, but after his super performance in ‘Raanjhanaa’ he’s not at his peak here.
If your stomach is still growling, your table for two (stars) is ready!
