Dil Kabaddi - Dubbed Hollywood Movie

I read the review by Prabal on the same site before watching the movie. I am writing my review as it is way different from his.

This movie is a one of the better movies made on relationships compared to the bollywood dramas like Salaam-e-ishq.

The movie talks about the splitting of a married couple, Samit(Irfan Khan) and Mita(Soha Ali Khan). Their friends Rishi(Rahul Bose) and Simi(Konkana Sen)who first try to convince them to stay married and underline the unethical reason for splitting the marriage soon brings all the same complications and insecurities to their own relationship and end up splitting.

Yes splitting and remarrying, dating and dumping and living-in is not casual in Indian society. Actually this movie is a rip off from Woody Allen’s movie "Husbands and Wives". You will be able to understand it much better if you see it as a dubbed Hollywood movie.

Konkana Sen performs outstandingly as the "passive-aggressive" character. Irfan Khan rocks as his portal of not so intellectual husband to an intellectual wife. His Comic timing is impeccable. Soha Ali Khan, Rahul Bose and Rahul Khanna also perform well.

This movie is a brilliant portrayal of mismatch of sensibilities in marriage. But anyone who has seen the original will say three cheers for Woody Allen and not for Anil Senior

My Rating: 3/5
