with the apparent one-night stand between a frustrated husband (due to
wife’s endlessly watching TV serials)

Chaudhary has made this as a sequel to his first movie – Pyar Ke Side Effects

by Farhan Akhtar and Trisha, played by Vidya Balan try to keep the passion and
fire alive in their relationship through quirky games. The director tries to
build up the plot slowly but definitely the dialogues have kept a few shots
very realistic. Probably it is the story of almost every household (Ekta is
trying to narrate घर घर
की कहानी) that a couple very much in love with each other takes their
relationship to the next level to marriage and later to parenthood. Movie
certainly gives an insight into the fact that the initial love, care, concern,
passion vanishes, rather the very intention of enjoying the togetherness
through marital bliss fails.

enjoy his singleton days and enjoy parties, friends, watching sports etc. and
on the other hand Trisha is in constant nagging mode due to complexities of
post-delivery anxiety syndromes (weight gain, leaving career for motherhood).
All Trisha can think off is in regard to the baby and all Sid can think off how
“it used to be earlier”. The communication between them hits a low pitch and
frequency. Ranvir (Ram Kapoor), brother-in-law of Sid advises him to spice up
his marital life with occasional white lies, and having some “Me-Time” and
re-living the joys of a carefree single life. The movie depicts that one is not
able to appreciate what is in the hands and looks out to escape from daily
mundane and monotonous life.

I felt that every couple must watch the movie not because the movie is great
but because it would definitely give insight into how we perceive our marital
relationship, how we look at our partner, how we treat our partner, how we
handle the commitment of togetherness, how we cope up with the transition from
being a single to a couple, to being parents, how we handle our love, how we
take the relationship / situations / partners for granted, how one tries to generate
a feeling of jealousy / insecurity in the other, how we point our fingers at our
partners but ultimately end up doing the same ‘mistake’ … Some shots take a dig
at all these things in a humoursitic manner.
Vidya is believable. This movie is being told from the perspective of Sid,
though Vidya’s perception is also shown in certain shots.
handled far more brilliantly. It is bizarre to see a struggling musician being
able to manage a pretty decent lifestyle in spite of the transition of status
from double-income to single-income. A few characters are introduced just to
stretch the story. Other cast viz. Vir Das (room partner to Sid), Gautami
Kapoor (Trisha’s sister-in-law), Rati Agnihotri (Trisha’s widowed mother),
Purab Kohli (Shekhar – a neighbor), Ila Arun (Maid) are completely wasted in
the movie. One good aspect of the movie is that it is without any melodrama.
