Starring: Neha Dhupia, Jimmy Shergill
Directed by Anand Kumar
Rating: *

The film begins by invoking Delhi, its sights and spirit. It even boasts of a special ode to the city by Rabbi Shergill. But nothing works; the city doesn’t even figure as a good backdrop, forget a vibrant metaphor that it’s meant to be. An assortment of Punjabi characters (someone please give the writers a lesson in the changing demographics of the city) and shooting in several suburban malls doesn’t make a Delhi. The film is about a couple sparring over their careers in a Gurgaon apartment, they could have been in Bombay, Bangalore or London. The director should watch films like Chashme Baddoor, Khosla Ka Ghosla and Monsoon Wedding to learn how to make a "Delhi" film before shooting his mouth off.
