Some scenes were funny like the one where Sid gives advice to that hotel manager or the one where he keeps waking up when the baby cries. The scene where his friends show up to watch a soccer match and the scene where he cuts his birthday cake were very good too. The scene where he forgets his daughter with the horse rider was unbelievable.
The movie should have had Sid in some regular job instead of being a musician. It felt as if the movie was about really rich people and their problems and completely away from the reality of most people. And it did not even make sense that Sid has to go somewhere else when he is hardly shown taking care of his daughter and he has a full time servant to take care of the kid. The songs were bad and all felt unnecessary in the movie.
Farhan Akhtar was ok as Sid. He was funny in the initial part of the movie. Vidya Balan was good but she looked overweight even in the initial parts when she was not supposed to be. Ram Kapoor was good too. Rati Agnihotri did not have much of a role. Vir Das was ok. Ila Arun’s role started off with so much build up only to deceive.
The movie started off ok with a scene inspired from a scene from the movie New York, I Love You. It was funny for the first hour or so even though there were a few silly scenes. But after that the movie completely lost the plot when Sid started living at some other place. The fight and all felt like it was there just to add some drama. The twist in the climax felt so bold for a few minutes but then it was like having the cake and eating it too. If one has nothing better to do then may be they can just watch the first hour and stop watching.Tags: Exclusive Farhan Akhtar Member Reviews Movies You Watched This Month Ram Kapoor Rati Rati Agnihotri Reviews Saket Chaudhary Shaadi Ke Side Effects Vidya Balan Vir Das
