In the Indian social set hitherto marriage was an occasion to celebrate and Hindi cinema used it as a metaphor or as a pivot to situate a film. But the times are changing. Marriage as an institution is not that sacrosanct now and divorce has become a common thing these days. Therefore it has become an occasion for celebration, and indeed theme parties are now being organized around divorce, and to put it in perspective a film is also on offer starring Madhavan and Bipasha Basu, JODI BREAKERS going to hit the silver screen this month.
JODI BREAKERS as the title suggests indeed is a team that believes in snapping off a relationship if it is not working properly, so that both the individuals are able to find a new beginning to their life. As a matter of fact in our country, the social and the family pressure is such that the pair of husband and wife , if they are not hitting off, cannot separate as well, under the perceived notion that the social stigma would not allow them to live their natural life post separation legal or illegal. But now that level of education and awareness has increased in the present generation, they are not inclined to fester in a relationship, and that is what the message of JODI BREAKERS seems to be.

The problem of our society lays in the fact that we are more worried about what the others would say about a thing, rather than the debilitating effect it would be having on the individual concerned who is going through torrid times in his personal life.
For the world of Hindi cinema it is an unusual pairing as it has been done in JODI BREAKERS, the pairing of Bipasha Basu and Madhavan. Both the actors belong to a different generation and there coming together is also indicative about the fact that cinema is maturing in the Indian context. Apart from the unconventional pairing of Madhavan and Bipasha Basu JODI BREAKERS also has funny man Omi Vaidya along with Dipannita Sharma.
JODI BREAKERS could turn out to be an important landmark in the world of Hindi cinema as it could encourage our society to start rethinking about the institution of marriage and allow those, who are in troubled marriage, to break the shackles and find a path of their own which would give them a peace of mind and a happy life.
