Two lives intersect in Mumbai and go along together. A struggling street photographer, pressured to marry by his grandmother, convinces a shy stranger to pose as his fiancée. The pair develops a connection that transforms them in ways that they could not expect. From Ritesh Batra (The Lunchbox).
An intriguing movie, that keeps a viewer involved throughout making them guess about what's next. the appreciable part of the movie is the cinematography that has been successful for the execution of the masses of life in Mumbai. The life and expectations from life of a struggling street photographer to , the expectation a middle class female is expected to meet is laudably executed. the pace of the movie might bother the viewers expecting quicker events in the movie. but the charm of the movie is in its pace. the details it emphasizes on would make a viewer feel as if they are actually observing a real daily life conversation.
the acting of both the leading actor is absolutely convincing but the justice has been done by Farrukh Jaffar as the grandmother of the lead Rafi (Nawazuddin Siddiqui)
a lot more have been expected out of the movie after the trailer, let alone one might be convinced despite the expectation.
This piece of art is worth a watch.
