Hasee Toh Phasee film review
By Sayantan Dalal
Film: Hasee Toh Phasee
Cast: Sidharth Malhotra, Parineeti Chopra
Director: Vinil Mathew
What it is about:
While Nikhil (Sidharth Malhotra) is engaged to his fiancee (Adah), he meets her sister, the goofy scientist Meeta (Parineeti Chopra); and soon sparks fly between the two confusing souls.
Hasee toh Phasee is an exhilarating rom-com. The film is wryly funny, compassionate, has a combination of fabulous performances, pitch-perfect script and deft direction.
Filmmaker Vinil Mathew is ideally suited to bring to life the nuanced screenplay. The debutant director tells a refreshing romantic tale, a far cry from your typical Bollywood rom-com. And the fact that he does it with subtlety, humour and touches an emotional chord, marks Vinil as a filmmaker to watch out for.
The rom-com covers old ground with disarming freshness; Vinil's lyrical, soulful projection of relationships cuts to the heart and leaves a mark behind.
In detailing the relationship between Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra, the film sweeps you up on waves of humour, heartbreak and ravishing romance. Sidharth and Parineeti give performances of unparalleled intimacy.
Parineeti is a ball of fire in a breakthrough performance of startling power. This is one actress who gets better and better in each of her outings. Parineeti and Sidharth's chemistry is strikingly convincing. Parineeti is wondrously natural, perhaps even better than any of her previous superb performances. She plays a well-rounded, non-stereotypical character which suits the script.
Sidharth too shows his growth as an actor in his second film after Student Of The Year. Sidharth's natural portrayal of Nikhil makes you believe in him. He holds his own next to the zany avatar of Parineeti. A special shout out to Manoj Joshi, who played the role of Parineeti's dad with much precision.
The film's music goes with the flow, with Zehnaseeb and Punjabi Wedding songs standing out.
Even with all the drama within Hasee Toh Phasee, it is an uplifting film in the end, a film about love - real love!
What to do:
A refreshing rom-com, Hasee Toh Phasee is definitely a must watch!
