Lighthearted humour don't hurt nobody!
19 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm a sucker for lighthearted jokes, lighthearted stories, and most importantly lighthearted people. When I watched this movie at the premiere, I thought it would be another one of those Indo-Canadian movies made in an effort to help the Canadian film industry. But I take back my words. This movie was a triple whammy for me: it had lighthearted jokes, lighthearted stories, and you guessed it, lighthearted people (actors). Isabelle Kaif was pleasant to look at and with time she should have some good projects lined up for herself. Vinay (as Dr. Deepak) wrote a good screenplay. His time at Lee Strasberg shows in whatever scene he's in. Though I don't understand Punjabi, the song Dal Makhni (Creamy Lentil) was groovy and I'll surprise my Punjabi co-workers (one day) by singing it for them. Do watch it if it's at a cinema near you. Lighthearted humour don't hurt nobody!
