The movie starts off slow & slowly catches pace. Not that ,it’s a thriller which needs to catch up pace or something . The movie starts off with the scene where a housewife makes a meal ,packs it in a tiffin & a dabba waala(tiffin guy) fetches the box (dabba) & delivers it to a specific office place.
So starts the story which weaves beautiful , outstanding & fantastic things all together.
It mesmerizes you at times, making you think and realize how two lonely people who are total strangers can find company & love in each other in this hustle bustle world.
The film keeps you interested through out . Some may find it as a drag (the one’s who went in for a masala movie despite the trailers shown repeatedly on every possible channels which shouts that “IT IS NOT A COMMERCIAL MASALA MOVIE”) , for them it may be boring. Not judging anybody here. Everyone has a right to like or not like something, right. It makes me feel immense happy to see how Indian cinema is evolving to a place much beyond our sights & thoughts. There are some film makers around us who do believe that their viewers deserve decent ,sensible stuffs & are mature enough to digest it.
Story is simple but the execution makes it a brilliant watch. I come across many people who have given up on Hindi Cinema due to the commercial masala movies being the top priorities here. This movie’s for those who think bollywood movies have become nothing more than 150-180 minutes of non-stop senseless action/drama which is just not worth the time or money.
Acting was kept simple & effective. Irfaan Khan no doubt ,delivers as promised as per his reputation & female character named “Ila” played by one Nimrat Kaur does justice to her role. Does a great job. Not to forget Nawazuddin Siddqui. Wonderful acting by him as well. Again, simple yet effective.
This film is simple , captivating , beautifully shot with average cinematography, heartwarming & definitely one of the finest movies to come out this year.
A lunchbox with a meal lingering your taste buds & satisfying you to the core , leaving you with no space for deserts.
P.S. – Brilliant ending is something to watch out for. It will keep you satisfied & at the same time wanting more.
