Jodi Breakers - Movie Review

'Jodi Breakers' is a sub-standard rom-com

The ApunKaChoice movie review of Jodi Breakers. Here’s a rom-com that instead of breaking new barriers capitulates to every conceivable stereotype we have come to associate with the genre. The plot of Jodi Breakers is farm fresh, no doubt, and instead of the boring matchmakers we have seen by dozen in Bollywood flops, this time we have the match-breakers, a couple that revels and prides in breaking up feuding spouses for good. But what does Jodi Breakers in is the puerile writing and inapt handling of the subject by the director, Ashwini Chaudhary.

Sid (Madhavan) has survived a broken marriage with scars of hefty alimony and other financial damages inflicted by his once dear but now dreaded wife. Understandably he finds his calling in the profession of a Jodi Breaker, a break-up specialist who helps quarreling spouses sort out their differences not with a reconciliation but a DIVORCE.

Sonali (Bipasha Basu) is his partner in crime. Every time the duo orchestrates a divorce, a sense of fulfillment takes over. Until…a zealous Sid goes out of his way to break apart a couple (Milind Soman and Dipannita Sharma), the fallout of which is the end of his own partnership with Sonali, and a guilt ridden heart he can’t live happily with.

Time for amends. Sid now embarks on the opposite mission to reunite the couple he wedged apart. In the process he also realizes his love for Sonali.

Two things are indispensible for a film of this genre: good humour and a chemistry between the lead pair. Jodi Breakers falters on the first front. The humour is decidedly childish and even silly. Instances like Omi Vaidya playing a saffron clad love guru gawking at the curves of his well-endowed lady-bhakts, or even sharing bed with a man aren’t funny. Heaping further misery upon a viewer is fart jokes and even a 3 Idiots-like speech that Omi unconvincingly delivers. A good actor fallen prey to Bollywood stereotypes.

A little respite comes in the form of the chemistry between Bipasha Basu and Madhavan. Madhavan, though pot-bellied and irrefutably chubby, is at ease playing his role, even though the scenes of the nubile blondes falling all over him in the song ‘Kunwara’ beggar belief. Bipasha Basu delivers her usual staple: a smorgasbord of pretty smiles, gorgeous poses and a bosom heaving song ‘Bipasha’. Together, Bipasha and Madhavan make a fine couple, with their own quibbles and quirks, but never really stand above the shoddy script.

In contrast, it’s Milind Soman and Dipannita Sharma who wins some of your admiration.

Jodi Breakers takes off on a slow note and hits a turning point at the interval point. Thereafter, the film’s pace does pick up but the story is stretched needlessly and by the time the climax arrives, one is already impatient to make a break for the exit door.
