Hasee Toh Phasee :Review
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Hasee Toh Phasee is a romantic comedy and a love triangle, directed by Vinil Mathew and stars Parineeti Chopra, Adah Sharma and Siddharth Malhotra.
The director Vinil Mathew has done fairly a good job at narrating a tale of two different people who help each other at break out of their individual shells and live their life on their own terms. The film offers some hearty laughs but could have done with a lot more humour and less drama. The film shows a typical melodramatic angle. Coming from a banner as big as Dharma Productions, it is needless to say the film ranks high on visual appeal, glamour and style. The larger than life film has been shot in a celebratory mood and quite effectively so, but lacks originality at times.
Parineeti Chopra steals the show yet again. She will remind you of Kareena Kapoor from ‘Jab We Met’. Sidhharth Malhotra shows a lot of scope of improvement. He undoubtedly has come a long way since his first film ‘Student Of The Year’. Given his introverted nature, he has been correctly chosen for the role. The contrast between his personality and Parineeti gives way to some good chemistry on screen. Adah Shah does justice to the role she is given.
The music is pleasing to the ears but we’re not too sure how long its going to rule the charts. ‘Zehnaseeb’ and ‘Punjabi Wedding Song’ stand apart while the rest of the songs fail to make a mark. It is definitely not the best work by Vishal-Shekhar. We’ve seen them do far better than this. If you’re looking for a light-hearted feel-good film or if you’re a fan of the leading lady, watch it. Its not the best film, but worth a watch at least.
