Nice script and decent direction, but it doesn't quite add up.
17 October 2006 | by post-45See all my reviews

Unfortunately this film doesn't quite come together. Mostly because of the casting. Roshan Seth is a fine actor, but he is nothing like the ordinary middle class Indian man he is supposed to play, not with that posh Doon School accent! and the same goes for Madhur Jaffrey, with her clipped Convent school speech. It looked like the producers/director just went for known names, without bothering to figure out what they were trying to depict. Fortunately the screenwriter knew what she was doing, and the film isn't that horrible, I suppose you can't mess a good story too much.

The direction was competent, but rather uninspired. it just feels like a project that was put together without too much passion. Or somebody didn't do their homework right.
