pretty okay
18 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Sirf," directed by Rajaatesh Nayar shows us a concept that tends to apply to our competitive modern-day society: Sometimes we think that the other side of the grass is greener when the person on the greener side is looking at us. Did this movie do a good enough job of executing this concept? Not wonderfully, but except for a couple of flaws, it is pretty good. Anyways, the movie's all about these four couples of different socioeconomic backgrounds living in the same city in India, and they are all connected. How? Well, the movie starts off with the economically unfortunate couple, who meet the middle class couple and envy them, and the middle class people meet the upper middle class people and envy them and it goes on and on and on…There are a few points when the higher class people envy the lower class people though…Anyways, as it turns out, all couples are facing challenges of their own and the movie does a good job of clearly showing us what these problems are, and the problems are quite practical. But something that I felt was really lacking was quality entertainment. "Sirf" drags way too much and at times, tries to incorporate the clichés of Indian drama instead of making it about real people.
