Before I begin with the review, let me tell you the story of the film.
Freida has invited her girlfriends from across the country to her place in Goa. What’s the occasion, none of these friends know; they land up there nevertheless. Soon, Freida reveals that she is getting married much against the consent of her family. Anyway, the girl gang soon starts celebrating a week-long bachelorette party.
So, is there a real story here? – No!
Is this an arty film? – No!
Is this a massy film? – No!
Is this a typical chic flick? – No!
Will boys enjoy this movie too? – Well, yes!
So, what is it that’s going on in this flick? In almost 80% of the film, there’s no real story as such. The movie either unravels each of the character’s stories, or it’s the usual bantering of the girls. But there are moments that will make you smile inadvertently. It’s only in the last 20 minutes or so, that some real action happens and we see a story there; but now, it’s too late! What’s worse is the fact that the ‘story’ is absolutely predictable. In fact, here we see a typical Bollywood film creep in, replete with several clichés.
The two best things about this movie are mind-blowing acting and fantabulous direction. Not even once will you feel that these actors are acting! And considering the fact that except Sandhya Mridul none of these other ladies are seasoned actors, it is even more commendable that they are absolutely natural and at ease in front of the camera. The credit for this well-deservingly goes to the director too. Pan Nalin has directed the film fantastically. The fact that none of these girls’ faces are shown to be loaded with kilos of makeup is yet another thing that’s worth an applause. Pan Nalin has kept the set-ups and lights natural. How we wish he had paid good attention to the script as well, filling it with a better storyline.
Before we reach the climax of the review, I need to talk about the climax of the film. As mentioned earlier, the climax is extremely clichéd; add to it, the movie ends abruptly. When the end credits roll in, there’s an interlude wherein we see the neighborhood guy offering prayers to a grave. It could have actually had a better end; maybe something like this: all these girls meet up after a year or so and finally attend Freida’s wedding, which (I guess) got cancelled last time!
Anyway, all said and done, this movie is a one-time watch. Not that it will evoke feminist feelings in you, or kill the anti-feminist thoughts you breed; it will however introduce you to the women of today and their thought process, which when provoked, won’t hesitate to transform into an angry Indian goddess!
