West Delhi. There was some potential in the on-off relationship between Ginny and her ex, who refuses to let her ‘move on’ and keeps popping up at the most inopportune moments, but that too trails off.

For all the latest Entertainment News, download Indian Express App. Nothing wrong with the actors. And Gautam, who was so good in Bala, would sparkle. You would have thought that Massey, as the rough diamond Sunny, would be a hoot. Just like the film. It’s the pallid writing that lets them down. Once ‘papaji’ (Gupta) has made this decision, ‘puttar’ has no choice but to obey. Middle class. Sunny aka Satnam Sethi (Massey) has a dream, to fulfil which, his fond father declares, he (Sunny) will have to get married. Rom-com. Keywords which lead you to the endless fascination Bollywood has for movies featuring ladka-ladki, mummyjis and daddyjis, gaana-bajaana, and shaadi-vyaah. Who knows. But not every film hoovering up this template can be Band Baaja Baraat, can it? Ginny (Gautam) is a confused soul, stuck with a commitment-phobic ex (Nayyar), and a loving mom (Mishra) who is dying to get darling ‘beti’ married.×1.png
