I’ve heard a lot of people making fuss on the slow pace and boring plot of the movie. It has been ridiculed on various platforms and has been given lower than 2-star rating by many critics. But my experience from the movie was entirely opposite to this.
Yes, I agree that I didn’t like the heroine much, especially because she was more fitting to perform the role of John Ibrahim’s elder sister with 2 children – a 5- year old boy and 7-year old girl. But, she was nowhere suitable to be casted opposite John. And the choreography was also a notch below the average performance. Dance sequences seemed to be forcefitted into the story.
But, all said and done, I think the plot was very good. John, a partner in a bookstore, is forced into volunteering for an NGO that has this novel idea of speaking with people who want to commit suicide and convince them not to commit suicide. On one such call, he comes across the heroine, whom I didn’t like from the first scene. But somehow they get along very well over phone where he convinces the lady that he’s some kind of a superman. As the fate has it, she visits his bookstore and Sid(John) falls into love with Mishka (heroine) at first site. Then as an unknown voice over phone, he convinces Mishka to fall in love with Sid and on their way they face usual small hiccups. What happens in the end is for you to watch.
But John’s performance and looks are very nice. Other characters in the story are just supporting roles and don’t have much of an impact on the main theme, other than just being around. And yes, the soundtracks were fabulous. I liked two songs the most – Do Nishaniyan and Cry Cry. The lyrics and music are superb.
All-in-all, the movie was nicely created and was a nice watch this weekend when I had just 2 other options at hand – Hiss and Rakht Charitra – both of which are not even at No. 20 on my list of ‘5 movie I want to watch this weekend.’
