Life Partner - Movie Review

Gosh! Not another film on post marital complications!
By Aparajita Ghosh

‘Life Partner’ begins on a light note and packs in a few moments of humour and romance in the first half. But as the story stretches into the second half, the proceedings take a serious turn. There’s marital strife, heartache and melodrama. However, all this chaff doesn’t pinch as much as the ludicrous climax that conveniently tries to iron out all the complications with one swipe. And that’s a big downer.

Director Rumi Jaffrey fails to give a definite premise to the film. What starts off as a rom-com turns into a family drama before the plot takes a whacky turn at the fag end. Even the performances by the actors are mostly over the top. Perhaps it was the director who wanted the actors to exaggerate their expressions.

Fardeen rocks as long as he’s funny. But once he transforms into a broody, sleepy fellow after marriage, his performance takes a dip. Genelia D’Souza displays a narrow emotive range oscillating from wide-eyed stares to nagging squeaky tone of her voice. Tusshar is very well cast as a gauche Gujarati. Prachi Desai plays her part well. Anupam Kher is okay but why does Darshan Zariwala keeps scowling throughout his part? Govinda has lost his comical touch. The cameo by Amrita Rao fails to lift up the movie.

The film’s cinematography is good but music is mediocre.

To sum it up, ‘Life Partner’ is a film that offers nothing new.

Rating: *1/2
