Rom-coms that talk about a self-centered man-child who slowly realizes that life is not just about the self but also about other relationships and commitments are dime a dozen in Hollywood. Such movies are sure-shot stress busters and are light on the senses. Hindi cinema has also had its share of such movies with Saif Ali Khan himself playing quite a few characters of that sort, inclusive of the recent Cocktail.

Here it’s John Abraham’s turn to play such a character; that of a hotshot music producer by the name Ishaan who is commitment phobic and doesn’t wish to take the relationship with his girlfriend Anushka (Chitrangada Singh) to the next level. After getting dumped for his selfish nature and after getting some life-lessons from his new bubbly neighbor (Prachi Desai), his sweet mother (Zarina Wahab) and his plain-speaking elder sister (Mini Mathur), Ishaan finally turns over a new leaf.

We are also shown Ishaan’s work as a music producer and how he has to deal with his constantly taunting boss (Raima Sen) and his protégé’s (Sheena Shahabadi) launch.

John Abraham looks smashing and is a good fit for such a rom-com, compared to his other recent appearances in action flicks and mindless comedies. The girls and ladies are sure to drool over him all over again. Chitrangada Singh is typecast yet again as the urban working woman after the recent Inkaar and she is overshadowed by the fresh and ravishing Prachi Desai who is the highlight of the movie. Prachi, in comparison with her other naïve avatars, is more sprightly here and even has some drunken fun. She is a natural with expressive eyes and is a charmer all the way. How we wish for neighbors as friendly and pretty as Prachi.

Zarina Wahab plays the sweet mom and she is endearing with her cute voice while Mini Mathur, Raima Sen and Sheena Shahabadi are adequate in the parts that they play.

As with other such ‘candy-floss’ rom-coms get ready for some suspension of disbelief. But ultimately, this is a decent drama with good looking leads, catchy songs by a group of composers, some really nice moments between John and Prachi and also the inevitable ‘coming of age’ of the till-then immature hero. The director Kapil Sharma has also coated the climax with some feel-good charm. In all, you will leave the hall with the feeling that you haven’t wasted your 108 minutes of the movie’s running time. 

Verdict: Decent `date movie' for the multiplex audiences.
