Cute Premise, Average Performance
29 January 2020 | by saanyadua7See all my reviews

I thought the premise of the movie in the trailer was a real fresh take on romantic comedies. The idea seemed super interesting until I saw the film.

While the movie has moments that are funny and kind of cute, I was quite taken aback by the bad performances. A legend like Hema Malini acted like a caricature of her self, Rajkumar Rao tried his best to save the film but sadly the writing, directing and co-actors didn't really help him much. Rakul Preet's character is rather annoying and immature.

I wish the movie was as good as the trailer. I'll give the movie a 5 on 10 for the honest effort put forward by Rajkumar Rao.
