Open Ended Movie
6 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

No director has done it before. Indians cannot accept it. We want or rather crave for closures and this is exactly what this movie is missing.

We are a society who has to be spoon fed. We cannot marry up the knowledge to reach a conclusion. Someone has to do it for us.

An open ended movie is never going to do well.

For me this movie was awesome. I liked every bit of it. The plot, the scenarios, the situations and the acting. Well written and well executed comedy.

I think Vidya Balan is criticized for her role but I think she was completely honest with her role. She did exactly and precisely what director wanted her to. Her character was who loved her husband and exploring fashion.

Very creative story but not cut out for Indian audience as they are not familiar with amnesia or similar disease.
