# She also heads to Goa like her brother. Goa does not tire you.
# 6 (right?) couples go to honeymoon in a bus.
# Each of their story is told, not at once, but as it moves on. The advertising plug of Radio Mirchi was unintrusive and sounded natural.
# Whoa, that superman bit was one thing I felt was out of place. Frankly, I did not get a hint until it was disclosed and was very surprised. The lorry repair, the girl catching coconut made sense was what I could connect only later ! There are very few occasions where I am so clueless, and perhaps none with so many obvious hints.
# However on second thoughts, this movie was like a fairy tale, but is not careless and includes some serious reflections of life. I am surprised how the director/script-writer pulled it through, though, with such contrasts. At one corner you have an old couple, who probably both wanted to end their life, but have been on honeymoon and the sadness is just not completely forgotten, yet they smile in front of each other and get away to reach out to their inner feelings, separately, hiding from the other. Boman’s daughter’s tale was executed amazingly well – with so little screen time but with lot of impact. Except for the sermon by Shabana Azmi, which perhaps was required, but I felt it got a little preachy and a littler long, but could have been done in a different manner – just a slap, if you ask me.
# On the other corner, forget it, I would not want to discuss each tale.
# Had a hint at the different interest of Mridula’s husband. But did not understand, how the end was closed. What was that bathroom coughing scene ? What next for Mridula ? However the pair was mature from the beginning.
# Re-entrance of Diya’s tale was unexpected !
# Amisha looked like over-acted. But, actually, the character was thus.
# Reema Sen’s karate kick and probably her entire character is likeable. The parasailing bit was beautifully executed.
# Ah, I think I forgot something.
# Enjoyed the movie. Am sure there are stuff to make a sequel and how I wish Zoya does that as well !
# Oh, not to forget totally lovely groovy track.
