After successfully arranging the marriage of her Delhi-based spinster aunt, Chitra, to Colonel Raghuvendra Singh, self-styled 'Event Manager', Aisha Kapoor, decides to turn match-maker. She is convinced that she can find the right match for anyone, including Bahadurgarh-based naive and innocent Shefali Thakur. Chaos and bitterness results after Aisha decides to convert Shefali into a modern and fashionable woman, and concludes that Randhir Gambhir is the ideal groom for her. Written by
There is a scene in the movie where Abhay Deol looks at Sonam and accuses her of being shallow. He may have been talking to the director of the movie. I don't know how many times poor Jane Austen may be rolling in her grave. Forget about adapting from the book (which is a true masterpiece ); it wasn't even able to copy from another classic of its kind.
The story does not progress with any logic scenes seem to have been cut and pasted to fill in the gap. The character Emma is supposed to be a complex one she is vain, narcissistic and controlling yet has charm and an attractive appeal about her. You love to hate her. Aisha, on the other hand , seemed plain dumb. Fighting with her childhood friend and acting like a bitchy teenager when another hot girl comes into the picture (a totally irrelevant addition) is really not a show of character. The love-hate equation with Abhay Deol should have been crackling but they keep arguing unnecessarily throughout the movie. Sonam doesn't look very convincing in her I-know-what's-best attitude.
As for the characters - Sonam has potential but is slowly becoming a bimbo expert. However she usually looks pretty in her movies and has a good sense of style so her styling in the movie seemed way off. The outfits were meant to emulate the Manhattan street style but looked odd and out of place. Abhay is his smart Alec self but looks so disgusted with his co star, you wonder how he fell in love with her. The supporting characters actually add flavor to the movie. Amrita Puri is fabulous, with good roles and opportunity she can make it big. Cyrus looks very genuine and appears to be a typical Delhi boy. Ira Dubey goes from headstrong and blasé to gentle and soft in 2 consecutive frame which confuses everyone.
The only scoring point was the movie's music which is very apt , youthful and a true delight..wish the movie was the same..!
