Not quite the disaster I thought this film would be, in fact, it’s an easy watch. Full review up at the Dawn (read it here).

  1. Meem say Mubarak ho 🙂 …aap ki fave sonam ki movie dal say disaster sabit nahi hoi 😉 …lekin kafi mixed reviews aye hain ya jo meri nazer say guzray iss liay kafi confused situation hai mere liay ..samajh nahi aye movie waqai achi hai ya buri..ager buri hai tou kiun dekh ker waqt berbad kerna aur phir tanqeed ker ker k dosron kaa maza bhi khrab kia jye 🙂

    jahan tak aap k review ki baat hai..well ab jub k mujhay pta chal gaya hai k aap sonam k sheen say shaydai hain 😛 ..main aap ki baat ko ziada sanjeedgi say nahi lainay wali…fans ki baaton ko main nazer andaz ker deti hoon 🙂 …

    lekin ek baat samajh nahi aye itni tareef k baad bhi 3 stars?..mera khayal hai khoobsurat ko bhi aap nay 3 stars hi diay thay ..iss kaa matlab dono movies ek jaisi hain ..phir reviews mein itna ferq kiun?…tell tell..RB tell tell..lol (ek purani movie kaa dialogue hai)

    1. Meherbani aapki. Bahut, bahut shukriya! Meri favourite Sonam ki, haha! Mujhe Sonam pata hai kyun pasand hain? Kyunki woh hameeshan bahut well-dressed hoti hain jo mein khud hoon isiliye kisi aur mein yeh talent dekha to fatafat appreciate kar diya. To be well put together at all times takes a lot of work (hard work!). Have you ever had to blow dry your hair seven days in a week? Ever use styling cream, paste, hairspray together? What about clothes? Let’s not even go there! Lol 🙂

      Khair Khoobsurat ko maine 2.5 stars deeya thay. Yahan Sonam ki acting theek iss liye hai kyunki unka bahut limited screen time hai. Rajkummar Rao ki acting Sonam ko bahut chhacy say balance kar daiti hai. Sonam is pretty dhulan and that’s all she is supposed to be. This isn’t a hard hitting female centric story. So it works.

      Good idea, well executed, but still not amazing cinema. For the pop-corn film lover this is solid gold, for you and me, we’ll settle for a silver or maybe a bronze. 😉

  2. Hello hello,

    You seem to have completely forgotten Dastaan after getting me hooked onto it. No fair!

    BTW this looks like a fun movie and I really like Rajkummar Rao. But I’m not sure I can sit through another Sonam Kapoor movie after the disaster that was Khoobsurat. You are right though, she’s always so well put together. I’d rather look through a fashion magazine spread of hers than spend two hours rolling my eyes at her OTT acting!!

    Good job with the review as always RB.

    1. Thank your, Fathima!

      No, no I haven’t forgotten. I’m working on a publication and just life generally. How’re you?

      It is, it’s decent times and I recently found out a remake of Punjabi movie called RSVP Roon Saray Viyaah Pichoon (Everyone cries after the wedding). I’m leaving you with the trailer as an aside. Rajkummar Rao is amazing. He’s one actor I think who has excellent talent. Just like Irfaan Khan and Nawzuddin Siddqui.

      Fashionistas we lot here, aren’t we?! LOL 😉

      Good to hear from you! I’ll be back to Dastaan in a few weeks time, bear with me till then. Pretty please. 🙂

      1. Please take your time RB. I was only kidding. I’ve been busy with work and family visiting from India.

        I’m assuming the remake is much better than the original after watching the trailer of the Punjabi movie and reading your review. And I couldn’t agree more with you about putting Rajkummar Rao alongside Irfan Khan and Nawazudhin Siddiqui. Also Kay kay Menon and Adil Hussain even though they don’t have as many movies.

        LOL at the fashionistas comment. I do admire people who are well put together but I’m afraid I can’t say the same of me – I’m dressed in blue scrubs atleast 9 hours a day. I think Sonam takes her fashionista label very seriously and puts in a lot of effort (though I’ve noticed she settles on Elie Saab to major events a lot of times). But no complaints considering some of the dowdy clothes most stars who have access to the best designers and stylists wear.

        All the best with your publication and everything else.

  3. mera khayal hai aap nay bhi dolly ki doly aisay hi dekhi ho gi…ab samajh aye ye film nahi uss haleem biryani aur shaami kababon kaa kamal tha ..hai naa? 😛 🙂

    1. Aap waqai koi najoomi hain maine abhi mince ko cooker mein dal kar ubalanay kay liye rakha hai kyunki mein shammi bana raha hoon. Kaafi dinoon baad bana raha hoon aaj dal bhi banayee hai. Isay kehtay hain bhook-say-bhook ko rah hoona! :p Kya nas pakdi aapnay. Shammi meray favourites hain, Lucknow mein ek Tunday Kebab kar kay jagah hai, waisay shammi maine kaheen nahi khaya. Second only to Mama’s cooking! Aap ka favourite… Karachi Mix Plate? 😉

      Aur aap kay liye ek video:

  4. Mujhay ye conversation bohat interesting lagi .inn mein say kafi chezon ko hum nay bhi discuss kia hoa hai ab Sonam aur Raj ko iss per baat kertay aur apna POV detay hoay sun ker acha laga..specially Raj nay apni mature approach say mujhay kafi impress kia…ager aap nay nahi dekha tou zaroor dekhen…hum nay yahan film ko chorh ker her cheez discuss ker li..lekin abhi main nay dekhi nahi..jub time milay ga dekh ker comment ker doon gi 🙂

      1. sawal dekh lia ab jawab bhi dekh lo..aap k kehnay say mujhay laga main nay kuch ghalat pooch lia aur kafi tension thi aur shermindagi alag…k pta nahi kaisa jawab milay lekin allah nay izzat rakh li 🙂

      2. Baat kuch aisi hai ki maine ussi Tweet par tanqeed kari thi. 😉 Dekh lo aap ki aur meri dono ki ek hi cheez par nazar padti hai. Haha! Doosray comments par aa raha hoon. Thodi si maulhat.
