Storyline

Mumbai-based Sunil Arora is in Marketing, while his wife of 10 years, Malti, is in Sales Division. Both have a son, Avi, who studies in Arya Vidya Mandir. When their U.S-based friends, Shefali and Harsh, come to visit, Sunil finds out the secret behind Harsh's attitude - which is spouse-swapping. He attempts to convince Malti to do the same - in vain initially - but succeeds rather dramatically after a few days. He goes through a number of classified advertisements and subsequently meets a couple, Kalpana and Vinod Khanna. He then convinces his wife to accompany him to their residence - with hopes that this joint meeting will not only spice up but also change their lives forever.

An Entertaining Comedy with Superb Performances!
15 May 2014 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

'Mixed Doubles' is realistic, but extremely funny & entertaining, as well. Its an under-rated film, that hasn't lapped up the way it should have with film buffs.

'Mixed Doubles' Synopsis: To spice up his life, a husband asks his wife to swap him for another male, while he swaps her for the other male's wife.

'Mixed Doubles' tells an absurd love-story of a couple, with a lot of humor, which quite frankly, works the most for this venture. The Screenplay is innovative & engaging. However, the final 20-minutes, are disappointing. The climax, in particular, looks artificial. Rajat Kapoor's Direction is simple, yet perfect. Cinematography & Editing are average.

Performance-Wise: Ranvir Shorey & Konkona Sen Sharma lead the film with sterling performances. Both of the actors, are in top-form! Koel Purie is excellent. Rajat Kapoor, himself, delivers a natural performance. Saurabh Shukla is decent. But the actor who steals the show, is, Vinay Pathak. In a brief role, the highly-talented actor pitches in a splendid performance. Naseeruddin Shah looks tired in a cameo.

On the whole, 'Mixed Doubles' is quite a fun ride.
