Life is Beautiful: Film Review – Predictable plot. Below-average acting

First off, Life is Beautiful should not be confused with the 1997 Italian movie of the same name. While the latter is considered one of the finest films ever made, the former leaves a lot to be desired. Shot in Canada, Life is Beautiful stars Manoj Amarnani as Raj, a Superman fanboy who is in love with Linda (Nancy Brunetta). But when his appeal for a Canadian residency visa is rejected, he decides to marry a complete stranger named Pia (Anokhi Dalvi). However, when Raj and Pia are forced to live together in a single apartment, they start sparring, resulting in awkward situations. Sounds familiar? That’s because this plot has been done to death in films like Green Card, The Proposal, Dostana and What Happens in Vegas.

Post the fake wedding, Linda breaks off with Raj, while Pia continues to make his life difficult. Raj tries to get close to Pia, and she assumes that he is in love with her even though he is still reminiscing about Linda. To compensate for the overtly-complicated yet predictable plot, Raj’s friend and roommate Prem is brought in to induce some humor, which consists of innumerable fart jokes and gay puns. The comedy bits are just dismal, and if anything, makes you laugh at how badly-executed they actually are.


If too many cooks spoil the broth, then a single cook can murder the whole recipe. Manoj Amarnani has not only acted, but has also written and directed the film, and cast his real-life girlfriend as Linda. This would have worked wonderfully if Nancy could act, or speak Hindi properly, for that matter. But Manoj and Nancy do look good together, right up to the point when they open their mouths. The dubbing in Life is Beautiful is a complete downer, with poor diction and incoherent dialogues.

The locales of Canada, however, are nicely-captured throughout the film. The film also benefits from a decent soundtrack, which boasts of prominent singers like Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Udit Narayan, Sonu Nigam, Alka Yagnik and Shreya Ghoshal. Unfortunately, good songs do not equate to a good movie in Bollywood.

Why should you watch this film?
You shouldn’t. Unless you have nothing better to do this weekend, and you would like to see how Canada looks in every season. The inconsistent plot and below-average acting make sure that you can give Life is Beautiful a miss. Even with the beautiful Toronto as a backdrop and a couple of hummable songs, this film just does not leave any kind of impression on the viewer.
