Dil ka Buddy
Love and the complexities surrounding it were always difficult to comprehend; more so in today’s age of excessive work and little quality time, thereby giving rise to insecurities, divorce, flings and sexual moorings. Dil Kabaddi tackles these.
IN THIS age of instant gratification who is really your asli Dil Ka Buddy, that is what Dil Kabaddi is all about!
The film opens with one of the protagonists telling that how times have changed since the time of Shahjehan – he spent 20 years building Taj Mahal for the love of his life – today people don’t even wait for 20 seconds to throw love out of their life!
Very soon the scene shifts to a couple (Soha & Irfan) – two years in marriage (hope my failing memory has served me right) – starting a fight, what else!?
They are on the way to meet their friends (Konkana & Rahul) – a seemingly perfect couple – are they?
Very soon Soha and Irfan break the news about their break-up to Konkana and Rahul. Konkana can’t accept the break-up of her best friend, neither can Irfan; for though he is having an affair with Payal Rohatgi – she is only for amorous outings – for his real feelings still lie with her arty girl, Soha.
On the other hand, Rahul has a thing for wild-girls (ahem!). He married Konkana only because she resembled his ex, (Juhi) and he took Konkana to be wild, by default! Whereas, Konkana is a mild bee – is she?
Rahul strikes a friendship with his 20-something student Raga (Saba Azaad). Raga has a yen for 30-something men!
On the other hand, Konkana wants Soha to start life afresh and introduces her to Rahul Khanna; the catch is Konkana herself has got hots for Rahul.
Is Konkana really as simple as she looks?
Or is she just using Soha as bait to catch Rahul for herself?
What happens next forms the narrative.
What rocks the movie?
Performances. Rahul Bose and Konkana are first-rate and truly in form. They are unstoppable. Saba Azaad makes a mark as Raga. Irfan and Soha are good too but there are scenes where they could have been better.
What chucks the movie?
Situations in the script could have been more plausible – particularly the scene where Rahul and Irfan stand in front of the mirror and Irfan insists that he looks younger; whereas the fact is there for the audiences to see!
India’s first sex-comedy without below-the-belt humour (remember, Kya Kool Hain Hum or Golmaal Returns) is an average fare that should appeal to multiplex-audiences.
