Saif Ali Khan steps into his comfort zone and delivers yet another ‘Happy Ending’ (2014) performance in this playboy-cum-father new age story, shot in some locations in London. Director Nitin Kakkar explores the father-daughter relationship in an unconventional way, which society does not want to swallow, because of taboos and hyprocrisy. He aptly draws the emotional connection between Saif Ali Khan and Alaya F (her debut Hindi film). The latter surprisingly plays her role with so much sincerity and impresses in most scenes. Tabu has limited scope in a few scenes and yet, puts her best efforts. Saif Ali Khan’s comic timing, one-liners and facial expressions are enough to get this story moving, even though, the movie loses steam in the second half due to the predictable nature of the events after the basic premise is set. Kubrra Sait looks stunning and does justice to her role. Farida Jalal and Chunkey Pandey are dependable. Under the direction of Nitin Kakkar, Saif Ali Khan is very lovable and the twists make it a decent watch, with average music and good cinematography. For those who are found of such types of rom-coms, they will lap it up.

Rating: 3/5
