    Dil Ka Kya Karen Saahib.

    The good thing about the film is that many scenes intentionally stop at the border-line of being vulgar, giving the best possible humorous angle to it…

    Samit (Irfan) and Mita (Soha) appear to be an unmatched couple. Samit being adventurous and experimental – role-playing, dominatrix, cross-dressing etc, while Mita is sophisticated, straight and not that passionate in showing off her feelings. This leads to their pre-divorce counseling and then separation. Their best-friends couple Simi and Rishi (Konkana and Rahul Bose) tries to sort out things but it does not help. Post separation, Samit moves in with his aerobic instructor over-enthusiastic Kaya (Payal Rohatgi) to fulfill his wild fantasies. Simi introduces Mita to her close buddy Veer (Rahul Khanna). Mita and Veer start mingling together. Meanwhile Simi and Rishi also introspect their marital life of four years and feel that there are gaps. Rishi gets attracted to his young student Raaga (Saba Azad) and Simi tries to woo Veer to his side. Samit starts getting his feelings back for Mita and wants her back. The chaos goes on and on…

    The glimpses of modern age social life of the west have been translated well to suit the contemporary Indian couples. The serious matter of adultery is shown with heavy dose of humor without being vulgar. Almost every lead character is hooked to two characters of opposite sex all the time. Dialogues are crisp and witty. The screenplay is tight and does not drag the story anytime.

    Performances: Irfan has got the best role and the best comic scenes in the film and he comes up with another fantastic performance. Soha also does well in her role. Rahul Bose and Konkana do well, but such expressions and dialogue delivery is nothing new for them. Rahul Khanna is good in his brief role. Extreme camera friendly Payal Rohatgi is aptly cast in the hysterical and dominating Kaya’s role. She needs to work more on her dialogue delivery.

    Music: Music by Sachin Gupta,Dhruv Dhalla and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is strictly ok.
