turning30-1What to look out for: An endearing treatment given to an urban subject and some charming and identifiable elements like a single woman’s relationship with her maid.

What not to look out for: Unnecessary songs and a slightly forced narrative.


“Turning 30” is definitely the kind of movie than an urban independentturning-30bike-pic.jpg woman can identify with. It brings to light a lot of the issues faced while trying to find your place in a highly competitive world as well as finding some balance and stability through a relationship.


mailgooglecom.jpegNaina Sing (Gul Panag) is a 29-year-old on the verge of a successful advertising career, a marriage and turning 30. But her bubble of stability and success bursts when her 3 year long relationship with her boyfriend ends with a simultaneous disaster in her advertising career. Jai (Purab Kohli) is Naina’s ex-boyfriend who re-enters her life regretting his decision years ago and hoping she would take him back. But on the contrary, Naina keeps him around while still refusing to come to terms with her broken relationship.


turning-30-4The first half depicts the way she deals with her crumbling life. In these portions of the film it becomes a little difficult to identify with her crying, whining and a narrative full of self pity. But before we are too quick to judge and say ‘pull it together woman’, let’s consider that it happens to most urban women at some point in their lives and a similar pattern of self pity does follow.


turning30-5She does have help in the form of two close girlfriends, one married and the other a lesbian (uncanny similarity to the Meg Ryan starrer “The Women”). With the help of her girlfriends and the advice of Jai, she tried to find herself before she looks for stability, success or fulfill any of her other desires. Needless to say, eventually she finds her way. Her journey to becoming a stronger and wiser woman eases you through the second half. Like they say, “what doesn’t break you makes you stronger”. Naina’s delightful metamorphosis through all her battles makes you want to get up and scream “way to go girl”. “Turning 30” therefore is an enjoyable watch depicting the ups and downs of a 30 year old urban woman.

Indian cinema needs many more such films made on real subjects and real characters like these. To Alankita Srivastav, Kudos for a Directorial Debut that I’m sure comes from the heart.


Verdict: 30 or not, it’s a must watch for every metro girl
