Tum Milo Toh Sahi- a Kabir Sadanand directorial looked very interesting. The innovative and good looking creatives added to its curiosity and to top it all Nana Patekar and Dimple Kapadia in the lead role. But some movies cannot be saved by actors alone.

Three parallel stories, converging in a coffee place might sound somewhat similar to the 2 week old Love Sex aur Dhoka but this is no masterpiece. Three parallel stories of love get entangled in the survival of an old coffee shop. Of the six main characters, one betrays trust of friends and family to get rich, one loses all hope and the rest of the four tries to fight for the shop. But buried secrets have to be dug out to save the 75 year old shop. Can the coffee house survive?

Kabir Sadanand does show improvement from his previous attempt wielding the gramophone but yet the movie is far from what it could have been. The
  Tum Milo Toh Sahi
first half is slow and the second half is even slower. Nana Patekar's and Dimple's story is easily the lifeline of the movie and the other two stories are boring and uninteresting especially the young love story. Scenes where Dimple is given an offer by Sunil is real powerful and Dimple's histrionics in the scene is praiseworthy. Songs crops up without reasoning and the item song by Tanisha is not needed. The climax is a big let down as it lets out the twist so easily.

The movie boasts of an utterly simple cinematography, a medium musical score and a below average editing. The movie has an atrociously silly background score which worsen the movie going experience to a large extent.

Nana Patekar and Dimple Kapadia easily carry the movie on their able shoulder with some inspiring performances. But neither Nana Patekar, who acts as a Tamil Brahmin mouths Tamil fluently nor does Dimple able to naturally mouth the Goan Hindi. Vidya Malvade looks ravishing and does a pretty good job but Sunil Shetty falls flat with a mediocre performance. Rehan is natural and is instantly likable. Anjana impresses with her attitude more than her acting. Mohnish Behl overacts. Others in the cast have little to do but nothing terrific or harming to specify.

A movie which boasts of several amazing talents fails to impress because of its hackneyed screenplay. If you are a hardcore Nana Patekar or Dimple's Fan you would not be disappointed but that being so less a population the movie can be welcomed with empty theatres leading to a fast entry in the DVD counters.

Verdict: Superlative Nana and Dimple try in vain to bank a sinking ship
