The Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi Movie Review

'Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi' is a pleasing Parsian rom-com!
By Naresh Kumar Deoshi
Rating: 2.5/5

The ApunKaChoice movie review of Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi. It’s never too late to fall in love, even though waistlines may threaten to spill out of clothes and arthritis making its first knock on the knees. One is also never too old to face parental opposition, as the gauche Farhad (Boman Irani), a 45-year-old unmarried Parsi, discovers when he at last finds the love of his life.

At his age, Farhad has to be content with selling bras and panties to ladies of all sizes, shapes and ages, without ever having found his own squeeze -- a dream girl, woman, widow or divorcee. At home, he’s a docile pushover for his domineering mom (Daisy Irani) and grandma (Shammi Aunty), disgruntled ladies fretting over the shrinking Parsi community and reconciled to Farhad’s misfortune of staying single.

A hope for Farhad sparkles with the coming of a 40-year-old spinster Shirin (Farah Khan), a feisty, no-nonsense Parsi with a bust size any bra-panty salesman could gauge with a fleeting gaze. Thereon starts the unusual love story between these two unlikely oddballs, with him trying to woo her through antics that turn out nothing short of tactical relationship blunders. Yet, something about Farhad, his honesty, his unassuming personality, touches Shirin and soon the love is two-sided. All’s well until Farhad’s mom disapproves of the match.

A lighthearted rom-com that gives a peek into the Parsi community, but not without trotting out the obvious clichés, Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi is surprisingly pleasing despite Farah Khan -- making her debut as an actress -- not being able to hold a candle to the immense natural talent of Boman Irani. The humour works best when it’s understated; it doesn’t when straying into the slapstick. The LOL moments are few and far between, but rest assured there’re enough grin-worthy gags to keep you regaled, the slack pace of the film in the second half notwithstanding.

Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi could have done better without the songs, none of which actually lend to the narrative. The writing (by Sanjay Leela Bhansali) has a few slivers of brilliance, an example being the sequence when Farah Khan invites Boman Irani for tea. The direction by Bela Sehgal is without any flash or frills, simple, non-linear and to the purpose of telling a story with honesty and tongue-in-cheek fun. The result is a film that though not an ideal weekend outing, is nonetheless an entertainer enough to merit a recommendation.

Rating: 2.5 stars out of 5
