But I am glad I did. We watched Vicky Doner last to last saturday. and its an amazing movie.
Firstly, I loved that mother and grand mother…what super duper lovely acting, amazing dialogues and what delivery. Darn!I wish I had a grandmother as sweet as that one. and that scene in which both of mother and grandmother sit and share a drink…thats one of the most convincing scenes, I have ever seen in a movie. Wow! THIS is how a MIL-DIL relation should be. They were never shown extra sugary sweet to each other, each had their own issues and voiced their opinions, but what super relationship. I loved it.
That lady, Yami Gautam, God! I havent seen a lady more beautiful than her in a long long time. She is drop dead gorgeous and what restrainted acting. Wah! I am totally in love with her.
Annu Kapoor – I must confess, I hated him, in that music programs he used to host earlier on, but man! was he convincing or what? I loved him as that doctor of infertility. The bindaas manner he announced himself, the relentless way he pursued Vicky, the honest way he spoke to want a perfect baby parents about how upbringing is more important than anything else, and the lovely truth he said about how infertility is on a rise in India due to stress resulting from spending more time in office, on laptops after coming home and hardly any family time left. I almost whistled when he said those dialogues..so so true. He is very very good!
and of course Ayushman Khurrana and his sexy voice in ‘pani da rang’ super duper…
And of course, the Delhish way of talking, the streets of Delhi , the beauty of Calcutta 🙂 beautiful 🙂
Its a movie with a perfect social message. and it has so many take aways
1. Divorcees can fall in love and get married
2. Old people can be as modern in their thinking as it comes
3. There is nothing shameful about donating sperms or being infertile. Its just a medical condition
4. There is dignity of labour in whatever you do
5. Inter caste marriages can be a total success and in laws can support you despite you going against your spouse
6. Stress is a reality in life and the sooner we accept that, the better its for our health
I loved the movie. There may be some flaws (I didnt find any to be honest!) but its a movie I would recommend all of us to watch.
Thanks Amit for recommending this 🙂
