The Story and direction is by Kunal Kohli who used to be Film Critic before he started wielding his own megaphone. The Story if original or borrowed is purely poignant. Now the Cast-Saif Ali Khan is a great actor but he is so overworked he probably does't even know which set, what scene or what emotion to portray. He goes thru the film with an "attitude" or a fixed demeanor that is becoming very familiar. Where as Rani gives one hundred percent of herself. The kids have a good potential, specially the kid that plays the older girl. The Scene with God and Angels sitting around is immaculately done with some great camera work and sets. Rishi Kapoor is "God"-a part that Amitab Bachchan used to have firm grip on, But Kapoor, is good whether he is playing "God" or a mere mortal. The movie has some week moments like the pool escapade. What was the point in this? was this in the Angel's job description? I wonder. The San Diego excursion even though approved by the Judge, kind of diluted the proceedings that otherwise had a homely feeling to it. All said and done this is good movie with some terrific words of wisdom and few lessons to learn. Rani, was portraying an Angel...but her acting was down-to-earth and saved Saif..Kunal...and Yash Raj Films.
