One more, make that two more actors have joined the bandwagon by turning producer, and this time it’s – Zayed Khan and Dia Mirza. But it’s pretty obvious – this product was apparently made to re-launch their careers rather than entertain the audience. And that’s inexcusable, when you expect movie-goers to pay good money to watch your film.
The basic premise of the film is: Is love an option? Jai and Naina are settled in their respective lives but there’s something missing. Jai is in love with Radhika and Naina is in a relationship with Dhruv (Vaibhav). Govind has gone through two divorces and he sets his eye on Sheila. Arjun and Gayatri are about to solemnise their relationship. Ritu keeps getting dumped.
There are too many relationships and characters, which could get very confusing for the audience. Moreover, the writer and director fail to place equal emphasis on everyone. Since each character is distinct from the others, the writer could have injected some lighter moments but has wasted this opportunity.
The first few reels fizzle out like flat soda. You wait for the fun parts but they aren’t there. For instance, the scene where Zayed and Dia meet for the first time – a very clumsy affair. It begs for some humour. Instead, Jai’s break-up with his girlfriend comes across so casually, it seems as if it wasn’t important.
The pace is slow and the film is too long for a predictable story. There are a few funny moments but not enough to salvage the film.This is Sahil Sanga’s first attempt at direction and he does show promise. But he needs to polish his skills and work on screenplay and dialogue. Aseem Bajaj’s cinematography is first rate. Background score could have been better.
Performance-wise, Zayed Khan is good. Dia Mirza is just about okay. Cyrus Sahukar manages to entertain. Rest are fine.
