Avijit Ghosh's Film Reviews
With a weak script to begin with, a story that loses the plot from the word ‘Go’ and an unmoving narrative, director Aditya V Datt seems to have failed in his ‘marriage proposal’ to the audience. The attempts to elicit a few laughs by stereo-typifying the gay community is not in good taste. After a while, we begin to gag on the gags. Accept this proposal at your own risk. This is one marriage that’s a bad idea.
At first glance, Jodi Breakers has a lot going for it: an unusual and interesting lead pair, fabulous outdoor location (Greece, in this case) and foot-stomping music. But the movie is let down by a script that lacks fizz and connect. Director Ashwini Chaudhary’s venture begins as a comedy but gradually morphs into romance and loses momentum in the second half. Jodi Breakers isn’t entirely without merit though. Madhavan is earnest. And Bipasha looks stunning. Together they try to make the film better than it actually is. But it simply isn’t enough.
…a film generously littered with cuss words and a titillating scene where a female cop feels up the leading lady. Single-screen theatres might yet find some viewers.
