Bipasha Basu and R. Madhavan’s Jodi Breakers that was quite in talks has now hit the screens. The pairing of Bips and Maddy was being churned out a lot. Initially people raised the eyebrows as to what happened to Bips that she agreed doing the film opposite the man who never ever did any Bollywood film as a single hero but now after watching both on TV screens (for promotions and in songs), the masses started liking the pair.
Ashwini Chaudhary’s Jodi Breakers is different from the formulaic stuff of Bollywood films. Why? This is because majority of the movies carry romantic love stories but this one is about the breakups. The leading couple of the film is in business of breaking the relationships – Jodi Breakers.
Sid (R. Madhavan0 is a divorcee and the one who does not believe in the institution of marriage at all after splitting from wife. He meets Sonia (Bipasha Basu) and both run the business of Jodi breakers. But one incident in their lives change everything by getting them decide to resolve the wrong doings they had dolled up so far.
The script, though seems different, but the initial reels of the movie help you think over the fact that you have seen these kinds of things on screen previously. The first half is just about okay and seems borrowed. The second half takes true life to the movie. The cinema goers begin enjoying the film when the post interval portion starts rolling on. The film is what the viewer takes it back home along.
Ashwini Chaudhary impresses with his work of direction. Aakash Kaushik’s script is brilliant. Cinematography is classy. Editing is good. Music is spongy.
R. Madhavan shows his class in his piece of acting. Bipasha is gorgeous and brilliant in acting. Milind Soman is first rate. Rest of the cast fills the bill also.
In a capsule, the movie is impressive and deserves to be watched.
