Ashwini Chaudhary's new film was set to roll with Madhavan and Bipasha's sizzling chemistry being made the centre of all the marketing campaign. With a catchy title, near perfect release date and a comic trailer, it was all set to keep the box office ringing. Has Ashwini Chaudhary finally made a movie which will bring him the much needed commercial hit?
The movie is about Sid (Madhavan) who happens to be a wedding breaker, gets help from Sonali (Bipasha) for a project and after the success, they agree to come on board to work together. So the Jodi starts breaking several jodi's relationships only to take one wrong step thanks to Madhavan's greed to get back his first love - his Audi car. Can Bipasha forgive him? Can he undo his wrong? Well that's what Jodi Breakers is all about!
Ashwini Chaudhary intended to make a comedy and started by using several internet jokes one after the other - which after a brisk start faded off just to finally bring all the faintest smiles to a standstill. By half time, the movie only saddened all faces in the theatre with its clichéd dialogues and very predictable screenplay. A strong 'Band Baaja Baarat' flavour couldn’t be ignored as almost the entire stretch reminded us about the jodi-joining-story. The story stagnated in the second half only to finish off with a contrived climax which was left for everyone's prediction.
The much-needed great chemistry between the pair, Bipasha and Madhavan were sizzling only in a few romantic scenes. However, it eluded us in the remaining scenes. Omi Vaidya’s acting seemed to be a bit over the top for the character he played. Milind Soman and Mrinalini Sharma looked great together but again bad characterization failed to take the better of them. Helen's introduction first promised great fun and twist in the proceedings but unfortunately even that character faded away after an enjoyable bashing up session of the hero. The rest of the crew were just about passable.
Technically the movie can boast of great cinematography and a very impressive background score. The 'Bipasha' song was out of place and the lyrics felt forced.
Overall, it was a good idea which just didn’t set sail. Over the top acting, coupled with bad dialogues and amateurish screenplay made it a bland attempt.
Verdict: No magic in this Jodi
