Hasee Toh Phasee Review

Rating: 2.5/5

One Line Review: A triangular lackluster yet clean love tale, which lacks novelty and presents "boy-meets-girl" formula in a zany way and love does not go cucking frazy in it!

Positive Points: Parineeti Chopra's impeccable performance, Good music.

Negative Points: Not-so-good direction, Non-gripping plot, Weak first half of the film, Story proceeding at snail's pace.

Plot: Nikhil Bhardwaj (Siddharth Malhotra) has always been a naughty child since his childhood and lives with his parents in Delhi. The mischievous nature of Nikhil often gives mental tension to his mother (Neena Kulkarni) and father (Sharat Saxena). Nikhil's father and elder brother both are IPS officers, while Nikhil is still trying to find his way and takes up event management contracts. Once Nikhil goes to attend a family wedding and there he stumbles upon a beautiful girl called Karishma Solanki (Adah Sharma). Gradually, both of them start loving each other. Karishma is a model, aspiring to become an actress. Everytime Karishma tries to threaten Nikhil that she will do break-up if things go wrong from Nikhil's side. However, Nikhil loves Karishma unconditionally and does everything possible to gain her love. At a point of time, Nikhil comes across Meeta (Parineeti Chopra), who has run away from her home and is somewhat strange by nature. Meeta is a brilliant scientist, a chemical engineer. She has habit of popping anti-depressant pills when she suffers from stress. After completing her Ph. D. in China, Meeta returns to her family in India. Nikhil comes to know that Meeta is Karishma's sister and her family has abandoned her due to her trouble-making behavioral pattern. Karishma plans accommodation for Meeta in a guest house, but Nikhil decides to take Meeta to his home, as he finds guest house a very clumsy space to live. Meeta starts to live with Nikhil's family and the family members find Meeta a weird person because of her different way of living.

In the meanwhile, Meeta starts developing feeling of love for Nikhil and she tells him so. But, Nikhil denies it by saying he loves Karishma and can't think of anyone else. After many twists and turns in the story, Meeta's family eventually accepts her and Nikhil helps Meeta in all this. Finally, the day of Nikhil and Karishma's marriage arrives, but with a storm in Nikhil's mind. Nikhil finds that unknowingly he has started loving Meeta and can't stop thinking about her. This incident takes Nikhil in a dilemma about his decision for his bride-to-be and the story proceeds with an expected turn.

Direction And Other Technical Aspects: The debut director Vinil Mathew came up with a love tale comprising of a love triangle. Though the plot was good, the way the story is executed is a bit boring. The direction is average. One may keep on wondering the exact series of incidents happening in the tale, especially in the first half of the movie. A couple dates each other for seven years, after this, the guy starts loving another girl and leaves his longtime girlfriend for the new one, is something which is hard to digest. Also, the reason Meeta is abandoned by her family seems faulty and does not seem acceptable. No one in the family tries to find out where is Meeta and in what condition she is living. This thing seems unreal.

However, the joint journey of Meeta and Nikhil is presented very well and does not contain fake element in it. Also, the tender, emotional shades of Meeta are depicted very well. The moments like Nikhil protecting Meeta in every situation and Meeta asking for five vadapavs to Nikhil in the heavy rain, the fault in Nikhil's car getting fixed by Meeta within seconds, were well-presented. The second half of the film is dragged a little bit, thus makes it more boring. Also, the story becomes much predictable after a point of time and loses grip. In all, one can say that the movie is too far away from what it seemed to be from its vibrant posters and crunchy trailer. Background score and editing were average.

Performance: The young lad Siddharth Malhotra rightly portrayed his character, but somewhere lacked the needed energy and expressions. Parineeti Chopra was as usual great in her role, but can say she exuded much more charm in her earlier releases. She has very well enacted the role of an intelligent yet naive character with apt facial expressions. Adah Sharma rendered her role conveniently well. She well displayed the feeling of possessiveness about her love.

The other actors like Neena Kulkarni, Sharat Saxena and MANOJ JOSHI have played their respective roles well, thereby lending a good support.

Music: The music composed by Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani was good, tuneful, but does not seem to have much shelf life. The track "Shake It Like Shammi" is good to see and youthful, while the romantic number "Zehnaseeb" is melodious and soothing to listen. "Punjabi Wedding Song" is spectacular for Siddharth and Parineeti's dance moves, though the lyrics and tune is not much memorable. The track "Tenu Takta" is a good one.

Final Verdict: One can watch this romantic ride for Parineeti Chopra's new avatar. Else the film has nothing new to dish out to the audience. Yet, a light-hearted movie with a pinch of romance and comedy that won't let one put pressure on the brain. A sweet treat for youngsters this Valentine's Day!
