    Toh Baat Pakki! rating: 5 out of 10(Pravir wrote on 23 Feb 2010)

    In a time of hyper comedies, director Kedar Shinde opts to make a light comedy around mentality and behavior of simple middle class families. In doing so he takes cue from yesteryear’s decent comedies made by the giants of filmmaking. Alright so far, but a lot depends on the narrative and characterization, which eventually makes a film watchable…

    Rajehwari (Tabu) is happily married to Surendra (Ayub Khan) and lives in a quiet hill station. Very extrovert, she is also looking for a suitable and secured “Saxena” groom from UP for her younger sister Nisha (Uvika Chaudhary). She bumps into an engineering student Rahul Saxena (Sharman Joshi) and plots to get him home as a paying guest and later marry with Nisha. Rahul and Nisha also come close. In the meantime, Surendra’s distant relative Yuvraj Saxena (Vatsal Seth) also comes to the town, who already has a good job at hand and is also an eligible bachelor. As a result, Rahul is thrown out, both out of the house and Nisha’s life, as Rajeshwari chooses for Yuvraj over Rahul. But Rahul won’t let it go that easily…

    An interesting plot at hand, the film takes off well with good performance by Tabu ably supported by Ayub Khan and Sharman Joshi. And it remains interesting till Yuvraj’s entry. A little later, the film goes into a “My Best Friend’s Wedding” mode and never comes out of it, resulting in whitewashing all good efforts of the first half. That’s the basic difference which made Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Basu Chatterjee and Gulzar stand out in their work; the script won’t take a dip till the end. Dialogues and cinematography are above average. Editing could have been tighter in the second half.

    Performances: Tabu gets the best role in the film and she delivers a fine performance. Her comic timing is excellent. Ayub Khan, after a long time, gets a role which doesn’t demand hamming, and he does well. Sharman Joshi also gets meaty role. He does well but could have been better. Vatsal Seth has to go a long way in his acting tutorials. Uvika Chaudhary is alright in her small role. Upasana Singh is over the top.

    Music: Pritam’s compositions are straight out of his recycle bin, and that’s surprising, this being Tips’ home production. Apart from “Jis Din Mera” , none of the number leaves a mark.
