Funny But Flawed
7 March 2014 | by aayushmankaulSee all my reviews

Let's get one thing cleared up here, Baby Ke Side Effects would be a more apt title for the movie, however, if you are ready to forgive that and get along with the movie, there is a fair chance of you enjoying it.

The movie relies heavily on its quirky writing and the humor that comes out of it. The best thing that the director of the movie could have done was to cast Farhan Akthar in the lead role as he suits the bill with his comic timing and delivery of witty dialogue. The actor is hysterical right from the word go. He drives the lead character in such a way that you will be rooting for him, even when most of the time he is playing a careless father. Vidya Balan's subtle portrayal of a urban woman struggling to be a new mother is remarkable. The vulnerability and emotions that she portrays makes sure that one does not forget her in a movie which is clearly tipped form a guy's perspective. The chemistry between the lead actors is what makes the whole experience worthwhile. Vir Das, Ram Kapoor, Purabh Kohli and Ila Arun chip in with good performances, though I'm not sure they were needed in this setup, they hardly fit the narrative, the exception being that of Ram Kapoor, but they could have made it short and it would have been sweeter.

The first half of the film is filled with witty moments and you will find yourself beaming, but as the movie progresses the narrative looses steam and its only the gags that keep you interested in it, but luckily enough there are enough gags to keep you feeling good about the movie. The second half of the movie starts on a promising note but soon it all goes astray and you secretly want the movie to reach its climax. The pacing of the movie is a big issue, even though the movie feels fresh and the direction is suave it does little to keep u engaged in the third act of the movie when the gags die and the movie takes a more serious turn.

Overall its a fun movie and if you are not looking for something to be overwhelmed then you will definitely enjoy it.
