Storyline

Asmi Ganatra is asked to produce a TV serial for 786 Plus on a wedding ceremony in a joint family. After approval, the only place she could locate to make this serial is the Joshi family. She meets with them but they turn her down. She then meets with Manoj Joshi, who is infatuated with her, pays him, and arranges for cameras to be placed all over the mansion to record the preparations secretly. Things appear to be going very well until Manoj finds out that his Taoji is still horny; one of his brothers is carrying on with Faujia, the maid; while the to-be bride, Piya, is planning to elope with her boyfriend, Rahul. A hilarious tussle ensues with Manoj attempting to stop the recording, while the TV producer and his staff are determined to complete this shoot at any and all costs.

Irfan & Juhi rock together!
9 June 2007 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

'7.5 Phere' revolves around an ambitious aspiring filmmaker, Asmi Ganatra (Juhi Chawla) and the guy Manoj Joshi (Irfan Khan) who could be her possible ticket to fame. Her assignment is to make a reality TV type documentary on a joint family wedding. That family happens to be Manoj's family. With the help of Manoj, Asmi manages to pull a sting operation (as the family opposes) on his niece's wedding.

The plot is quite genuine, something not attempted in Indian films before. Irfan and Juhi are hilarious and share a wonderful chemistry. Both provide the funniest moments of '7.5 Phere'. Juhi Chawla once again with her divine comedic talent shines. This time her funny character has shades of gray. While Irfan Khan plays the slightly weird but likable Manoj with ease.

However, the supporting cast is mostly annoying. Better actors could have been chosen. Thankfully, the presence of the lead actors makes up for this flaw. Direction could have been better (more editing would have helped) but Trivedi deserves credit for bringing Irfan and Juhi together for the first time on screen and for tackling a new subject. Songs are kept to a minimum (there's only one song). To sum it up, 7.5 Phere is quite enjoyable (for most parts) and I really liked watching the comedic chemistry between Irfan and Juhi.
