The Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd. Movie Review

Timepass Entertainer
By Nikhil Kumar
Rating: 0.5/5

Comedy is a serious business, and not an easy one at that. In her directorial debut 'Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd.', Reema Kagti tries to offer a cocktail of comedy, romance and a bit of drama. The end result is a movie that entertains only in some patches.

In trying to handle the stories of six honeymooning couples on a bus ride from Mumbai to Goa, Kagti bites more than she can chew in her very first attempt at direction. On paper, the six stories look enchanting. But on the silver screen, some of these stories look half-baked and put together in a slipshod way.

However, what retains the audience interest in the movie is that there are twists in every one of these six stories. Some surprises are interesting, some are generic and some simply over-the-top.

Here is a brief look at the movie's characters.

Oscar (Boman Irani) and Nahid (Shabana Azmi) are the seniormost of the six couples. They are from Mumbai. On their honeymoon trip, Oscar's past catches up with him in Goa, creating a flurry of emotions.

Partho (Kay Kay Menon) and Milli (Raima Sen) are from Kolkata. While Partho is an uptight man with a conservative mindset, Milli is eager to break the mould and live life to the fullest.

Aspi (Abhay Deol) and Zara (Minissha Lamba) are the most compatible couple of the lot. They never quarrel and seem like made for each other. But there is a secret behind their compatibility.

Pinky (Amisha Patel) and Vicky (Karan Khanna) are from Delhi. Pinky is a talkative Punjabi girl fascinated by Bollywood's romantic movies. She wants a fairy tale romance. But her husband keeps avoiding her.

Hitesh (Ranvir Shorey) and Shilpa (Dia Mirza) are from Surat. Apparently, Shilpa harbours no feelings towards her husband. She seems stuck in a marriage she did not want in the first place.

Bunty (Vikram Chatwal) and Madhu (Sandhya Mridul) came to know each other on Internet and got married in unlikely circumstances. But they harbour personal secrets that they haven't yet shared with each other.

Several twists take place in these stories. There is an angle of gay men. There is an unbelievable fantasy element to the story of a couple. There is a man on a mobike following the bus. One of the wives elopes with him. There is fun, frivolity, commotion, confusion and a tangle before the story draws to its conclusion. However, some of the tracks haven't been given proper culmination.

It is not that 'Honeymoon Travels' is a bad film. It only tries to put its foot in many shoes at the same time. For one, it desperately tries to make you laugh in some portions, but with minimal results. Even the film's music by Vishal-Shekhar is just about okay.

Among the performances, the best come from Kay Kay Menon, Shabana Azmi and Raima Sen. Boman Irani's performance is not as bad as the wig he is made to wear in the film. Dia Mirza is commendably restrained, while Ranvir Shorey has been given very less footage. Amisha Patel goes over the top (as per the requirement of her role) while Karan Khanna manages not to ham. Vikram Chatwal is strictly okay, but Sandhya Mridul shows glimpses of good acting.

'Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd.' could have been better if the director had wielded a tight leash on the plot (and subplots) in the second half. Still, if you watch the film in an absolutely frivolous mood, you might end up liking it as a good timepass entertainer.
