Highlight Story

Randeep Hooda, Shahana Goswami
Direction: Arjun Bali
Rating: *

If only someone hadn’t seen the video of the crummy If Only, you would have saved yourself from this hu-ba-hu snooze-o-rama.

Neither Nix (Randeep Hooda) nor Tara Pum (Shahana Goswami) are established as particularly worth-knowing people. He’s a busy executive at power presentations, she’s a time-pass actress in a play by Shakespeare (he’s contagious). After hundreds years of living in, she wants a marriage, he doesn’t. Groan and bear it.

Because, yipee, the long-lost Kulbhushan Kharbanda shows up as a taxi driver, drops some nuggets about Sigmund FRIED (really now), and drives the couple at top speed into another car. You’re not at all sure what director Bali wanted to say and why neither Hooda nor Goswami deliver half-decent performances. Kharbanda, mercifully, stays behind the wheel. A-void.
