Storyline

London-based Siddharth Arya gets a number of telephone calls from three suicidal males in one night. Subsequently, he is approached by Suhana Malik from 'Dost India' and requested to volunteer his time every night counseling East Indians from killing themselves. Siddharth, who stammers in presence of attractive women, but not on the phone, agrees to do so - much to the chagrin of his Air-Hostess girlfriend, Krutika. One of his callers is a distraught female, Mishka, who wants to kill herself as she has been jilted by her long-time boyfriend, Kabir. Siddharth not only talks her out of it but also convinces her to make new friends. Both meet at the bookstore that he manages with his friends but he refuses to divulge his identity. Both continue to meet and are drawn towards one another - but not for long - as soon Krutika will demand an explanation, as well as Kabir will attempt to re-enter Mishka's life.

Something's not quite right in there....
6 July 2011 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

With 2008 blockbuster hit "Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na" under his belt, one would expect Abbas Typrewala to dish out an equivalent with "Jhoota Hi Sahi". Sadly it doesn't reach the same zenith but then its its not too bad either. Its a nice light-hearted romantic comedy packed with some decent performances. The first-half sails like a breeze. The way "couple hand-picked in heaven" waiting to bump into each other on earth amongst sinful mortals is well fleshed out. And yes, the ode to "Notting Hill" is clearly visible. Its the second half thats lets the graph down. The audience waits with bated breath for the penny- dropping moment, but it takes quite a while to reach there.

John Abraham upp's his performance bar. Quite natural indeed. Pakhi in real-life might be heroine-material but on screen she doesn't have what it takes. The other supporting cast have done a good job. Madhavan was probably doped when he signed the dotted line, he was awful. Anaitha Nair & Nandana Sen deserved more screen time.

Rahman's songs are very much below average (infact a touch of nonchalant is clearly visible)

As in his earlier outing this time around the director again packs in too many layers. Sadly its gets far too many and to extent that the narrative sometimes loses sight of the main plot. London as a backdrop doesn't add any value to the story.

Verdict: Only telly material.
