Bollywood is famous for having more than its fair share of ishq in its movies. So when we were promised 1.5 times its usual dose, and that too with a generous sprinkling of Madhuri Dixit and Naseeruddin Shah, it would be quite the understatement to say that we were intrigued. As usual, our reporter watched the movie on its first day and spoke to sections of the audience.
He began by inquiring about the title, and found a real expert to help him:

Patting himself on the back for having thought of something so clever, our not-so-bright reporter spotted his favourite blue star (no, we’re not talking about the air conditioner) standing some distance away and sauntered over.
After an overwhelmingly positive review, our reviewer realized that this film might finally have reversed the trend of brainless blockbusters. Suddenly, he remembered an encounter he’d had on the first day of 2014.
Sure that he wouldn’t fulfill a single one of those promises, our reporter ran away before the Sadhu could catch him out. Knowing how fashionable it is these days to talk to the ‘aam aadmi’, he decided to speak to someone who had actually paid for the movie ticket.
Unfortunately, the interview was cut short when the girl has to be carried off for the number of spoilers she was inadvertently giving our readers. We’ve got to say we agreed with her, though. It was a refreshing change to laugh with a film, instead of at it.
