Too long and not very interesting despite the intriguing title
24 August 2011 | by caigedSee all my reviews

The film follows Naina's life days before her birthday and the plot revolves around her reaching several crossroads in her life. First off is the thought of turning 30 (horror of all horrors!). Then there's the fact that she's not married, despite being in a long term relationship, and she hasn't really given her long term future much of a thought. Then her world comes crashing down as she has to deal with several problems all at once, namely her personal relationship, her career and her friends.

So how does Naina deal with all of these problems? Well, she drinks a lot, swears a lot, smokes a lot, cries a lot and has a lot of tantrums which are then followed by more crying.

I couldn't wait for this movie to be over, not because it was terrible, as it wasn't that bad, but because it just wasn't that interesting. Turning 30's plot could have been so much better. The idea that she's unmarried and 30 could have led to a comedic path with some funny escapades or a more serious route in which Naina could have done some soul searching and matured as an individual. Instead we're treated to lots of crying and melodrama which was very annoying. I understand that people go to pieces when their relationships go south and it would have been better if that's what happened to Naina. Instead she becomes annoying, needy, whining and childish.

Gul Panag looks very good in the movie and she acts well...part of the time. Those are the parts where she doesn't throw hissy fits, which are very often that it made my eyes roll every time it happened. Her friends are there just as support pillars. There's not much development for their characters which was a shame as it would have provided a good distraction from Naina's problems which occupied the movie 99% of the time.

I can't find it in me to recommend this movie to anyone, unfortunately. For a Gul Panag fan, that is a bitter pill to swallow. It could have been so much better but instead of daring to be different the director and writers went on the well trodden formulaic path which ultimately led to a pointless movie with a typical ending which rendered the whole plot pointless. Watch the first ten minutes and forward to the last ten minutes and you'll have seen the movie with nothing missed in between.
