This movie grips you in parts and then rips you making you tear your hair in frustration. Though it begins well, banking on the mundane life of married couples, somewhere it slips along, and rather quickly at that, into mediocrity. To sum it up, it's like having good starters but bad main course and even worse desserts.
The only reason why the interest is kept alive as the two married couples continue their bickering on screen is because of the performances of two actors, Soha Ali Khan and Saba, the girl who plays Raga, a student.
The story is about two couples, Irrfan Khan and Soha, and Rahul Bose and Konkona Sen Sharma. They are best of pals. One day Irrfan and Soha drop a bomb, telling their friends they are separating; the other couple goes ballistic, especially Konkona saying why they should not. However, they do. Towards the end of the movie, they get back together while the couple, who were so vehemently against it, have separated. Confusing, right?
However, there are interesting scenes where I'm sure married couples would relate to. But this is not enough to grip the viewer. Director Anil treads down familiar paths but his weak script lets him down at important halts. If not for Soha and Saba, as mentioned earlier, this would have been a huge bore.
Soha gives off a matured performance completely in sync with the character she is playing. Even scenes, which are downright silly, she manages to prop up with her surprising grip. Saba on the other hand is a class act. A complete natural who delivers with finesse what's asked of her. Watch her seducing her professor, as she plays just a silly girl but knows all along what she is doing.
