The film is about a group of seven friends, who prefer brunches to nightclubs. They have settled down and are happy with their respective partners, except one – Aliya Raj. Played by Shenaz Treasurywala, Aliya is a headstrong and independent casting director who has made a perfect life for herself. The only thing that seems to be missing is the ‘Perfect’ guy to complete the picture. Her friends try to set her up with decent guys but she rejects all of them for various reasons. Tired with the pressures of a single life, Aliya decides to hire a boyfriend.
Enter Sukhi Singh (Barun Sobti), who is a struggling actor and is the complete opposite of what Aliya wants in her man. She spends two weeks training him so that she can present him to her friends. Sukhi is an instant hit among her group and he slowly begins to influence change in all their relationships.
Like old wine in a new bottle, however this story hasn’t got any better with age. The story of how opposites attract and true love goes beyond good looks and table manners. The sudden audition scenes and the song ‘Pyaar bina chain kahan’, are both unnecessary elements and do nothing for the film. The screenplay is amateur and extremely predictable. Shenaz Treasurywala has done a good job, only her accent is not justified. Barun Sobti tries too hard but is endearing for the most part. The rest of the cast is wasted and the intertwined stories only make the film seem long. Makarand Deshpande appears in a cameo but fails to surprise.
Why should you watch the film?
Shenaz Treasurywala reappears on the silver screen and looks ravishing in every frame. Barun Sobti’s mainstream cinema debut will delight television fans. Give this movie a chance if you are looking for some light entertainment this weekend.
