Storyline

Wildly imaginative and film-obsessed, Meenakshi Deshpande has an extra sensitive nose. After she is hired to work in a local college's library, she catches a wonderful scent in the air. The source is Surya, a handsome and enigmatic art student from a Tamil family. Meanwhile, Meenakshi's eccentric Marathi family has arranged for her marriage to Madhav, a kind and sensible man. Meenakshi is torn between marrying her parents' choice for a seemingly ideal husband, or following her nose and chasing the hunky stranger who may or may not be all that he seems. Written by L. Hamre

Hindi comedy done perfectly!
19 October 2012 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

Watching this movie was a beautiful experience that I had to repeat. First of all, the nostalgia of older romantic movies was done just perfectly. Rani's look, choice of cast and scenes was very natural and real, which allows the audience to focus more on the story and acting. The movie idea is so brilliant. I saw the earlier movie which Aiyya's story was taken from (the smell). It was purely unique and captivating that it would have been even a greater idea if the story was expanded. The songs were amazing and highlighted Rani's skills. Even though Pritviraj role was not as visible as Rani's but it was unique in the since that it was not exaggerated as in most Hindi movies where even if the hero keeps to himself, he would have been shoved in more scenes till the audience screams "we get it!". Not sure how he will fit in Bollywood but he fitted the role in this movie perfectly. I even liked the supporting actress and the brother. They reminded me of the comedy supporting actors of 1990's like Jonny Lever, etc. If you are not a fan of realistic comedy movies, prefer commercial/ " in the box" movie ideas then this movie is not for you.
