A new age, dark movie. So bold that it had me frowning. So well made that it had me cheering and so exceptional that it had me loving the flawed hero who doesn’t deserve or expect attention. The feminist in me did balk at the heroine, Kiara Advani, being taken for granted but it worked under the guise of med school ragging. I definitely expected a more glamorous lead actress and equally surprised at the subtle outfits and makeup of all the actors, art movie style subtlety.
The movie has its moments.. in a skating rink with the Abba’s Dancing Queen playing; then again when Gus shows Molly a shooting star and explains how we are all made from Stardust.. Calcium being in our bones and Iron in the blood. One funny scene which is actually sad is when Gus is horrified everytime Jerry mentions his break up and divorce with ex Brenda which Gus just doesn’t remember. Also the grouch Baptiste, owner of the cafe Molly works at gets his share of laughs for his one liners. To fall in love with someone every single day.. Again and again.. May be romantic and does linger but leaves a dull ache in the stomach which a sequel would help cure…
Kartik Aryan and Kriti Sanon look great and you can’t find a flaw with their clothes or their morning after messed up looks. While Pankaj Tripathi gets not only into character but manages to get under your skin too. I expected to see more of Vinay Pathak though.
