Take a bow Shashanka Ghosh!
How wrong I was.. Had absolutely made up my mind, that this would be some preachy feminist movie, but thanks to the paid trolls I watched it.
It is definitely not preachy, but presents the new generation as they live their lives today. The fact that this movie was certified adults, shows how intolerant our system is. Sad, even Prasoon Joshi felt compelled to certify this movie as for adults only. We hear much worse language on TV!
All the four actresses are superb, led by Kareena who is wonderfully restrained and underplays her role as Kalindi who is commitment phobic. Swara plays to the gallery as the loud, risque and brazen Sakshi Soni, a character meant to shock with her language and dialogues. Sonam is fantastic as a divorce lawyer and comes into form in the second half of the movie, you may find her sexy just uttering the dialogue “Hello Bhandari” 🙂 Shikha Talsania is awesome as Meera too.
You may tend to compare the movie to ZNMD, but I think the ladies have done a fabulous job thus the movie is as good as ZNMD if not better – but definitely more believable.
Music is zany and in tune with the happenings but will not be chartbuster like ZNMD soundtrack.
The movie will definitely shock the prude in you, but be ready for a change, the fact that the movie is a blockbuster proves it. This is not “chick flick” and it should not be branded as one.
Instead of Adults, the movie should have been UA, we definitely need an autonomous censorship body that works independently and not succumb to any political pressure. We need a censor chief with balls.. as the ladies in the movie would say.
5 stars all the way !
