CAST & CREW
Plot: The story follows the lives of five friends, five people, five individuals, each one quirky, on a quest to help one of them find his lost love. Angie is a widow who lives with her mother in law, Rosie, another widow. Angie loves helping others and sets into the task of finding Ferdi, the lost love of his life, with her mother in law, the painter who finds his inspiration in Rosie, Ferdi, and the mechanic whose car they use.
Analysis: The film though themed as a comedy is not a comedy, and it sure has its light moments, but the film is so much more. It is about five individuals, irrespective of their ages, moving towards their goals, using their ideologies, to get what they want. The screenplay of this movie is stunning. The cinematography is perfect. Editing is done brilliantly, leaving no extra scenes. The dialogues are full of impact. Though, it can’t be said that the movie is perfect. There are something’s which are unexplained and don’t make sense.
Don Pedro’s character is suddenly dead, and you keep wondering what the reason behind killing him off was, or there is the fact that the car repairs itself, which is well illogical. This movie isn’t a typical masala Bollywood movie, so if you are seeking that, this movie isn’t for you. But let me tell you this, Homi Adijania brings a rare piece of a movie to us, different and stunning.
Star Performance: The acting is what makes this movie amazing. Deepika Padukone gives a stunning performance which mesmerizes you. She is stunning as ever. Arjun Kapoor is perfect for the brooding guy role and carries it out effortlessly. Naseeruddin absolutely nails his role, acts it out perfectly and leaves you wanting for more. Pankaj Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia give an efficient performance too.
