Dia is a divorced mom living in New York and must go back to India after she receives news that her guru is on his death bed.

Madhuri magic - Still bewitching
20 September 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Let's first get the obvious out of the way – This movie was conceptualized for those who lived and basked in the age of Queen Madhuri. If you have cherished memories of growing up with this charming, lovable lady with her bewitching grace and mesmerizing smile, run to your nearest God and ask for blessings for the crew of this movie that have brought you back your first love. This movie will make you fall in love with Madhuri all over again.

This movie is meant to be an easy-watch. There is not much to be angry about or no one to be angry on. (the poor baddie is even mellow enough to break-down into tears in the end.) There is not much to work your grey cells about. Nothing makes you laugh-out-loud or shed a tear on. Rationale, attention-to-detail were never meant to be its forte, so don't even care.

Instead sit back and feast your eyes on the colors, the dance-sequences, the leisurely movie-making that does not strive to try too hard but plays itself out with a very enjoyable and likable pace. There is focus on the sublime aspects of life – love, friendship, helping and sharing, coming together for a cause ("The joy of doing something together" as put by Madhuri in one scene). And of course there is absolutely no way your heart will not go out to that damsel in distress, with daughter in tow and a mélange of rookies fighting the cruel cruel world to uphold Culture and the last wish of a dying Guru.

Actors like Konkona, Raghuvir Yadav, Irrfan, Vinay Pathak, Ranvir Shorey, Yashpal Sharma never fail to delight and this movie is no exception. The music though not path breaking does blend with the mood of the movie and provides the required support.

All in all, keep your expectations right and you will come out of this movie with a smile on your face a tune in hum.
