Star Ratings: ***.5
The much-awaited rom-com, Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi released today with packed cineplexes. The crazy, cute and adorable love story of Shirin and Farhad succeeds to win millions of hearts.
If you feel like innocence and romance can’t be allied with mature 40-something men and women, SFKTNP is all you need to watch!
This masterpiece has all what makes you go crazy. It is an impeccable combo of madness and Bollywoods spices!
The story moves around a gold-hearted bachelor Farhad Pastakiya (played by Boman Irani) who never had any girlfriend in his life except a bossy mom, Nargis. 45-year-old Farhad is a lingerie salesman.
His life takes an interesting turn after meeting 40-year-old Shirin Fugawala (played by Farah Khan). He falls in love with her at first sight. But twist in the tale happens when Nargis refuses to accept Shirin as her bahu.
Another spicy character in the story is that of Boman’s grand mom played by veteran actor Shammi. Her modernity and invariably happiness makes her an absolute darling. Her character is very much similar to that of the modern grandma from Vicky Donor.
A special toast for 52-year-old Boman Irani, who takes up the challenge and played an outstanding innings as a young lover in the flick. He proves his calibre again by flashing his naughtiness in his acting.
Farah Khan is also very convincing in her role. Unlike the other zero-size young divas, a bubbly-tubbly Farah Khan looks more natural and cute in her shapeless stature.
The chemistry between Boman and Farah is just wow!
Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi is a bag with songs and emotions. Though the songs are not very impressive, it still gives you a playful feeling.
Interestingly, the heavy dose of Parsi culture showcased in the film reminds us of the 1978 Basu Chatterjee film Khatta Meetha.
All in all, the movie is a winner in all senses.
