Highlight Story

Sirf
Cast: Kay Kay Menon, Manisha Koirala and many etc
Direction: Rajaatesh Nayar
Rating: *1/2

Sorry to say but this just isn’t a healthy week at the movies. Cough and sniffle, if you must, towards four couples trapped in the big, bad city. All of them are caught at a phase when they should just forget their miseries, maybe read a book or just smell the roses. Quit whining guys.

Throughout, the pawns on director Rajaatesh Nayar’s board game hardly arouse your interest. Seen-them-suffered-them before in Life in Metro and a hundred movies before. And so once again, Sirf displays Kay Kay Menon ignoring his wife (Manisha Koirala, this time) for.. yawn yawn.. office work.

Another couple has housing problems, another has a child care situation, and yet another man and wife hiss at each other as if they were hungry snakes. A screenplay that aspires to touch upon middle class life surely needed more insights. All you get are cliches – urban living is yuk, society women are creepy crawlies -- you know that sort of a thing.

Of the cast, only Kay Kay Menon and Sonali Kulkarni are impressive. They dignify an enterprise which claims that the grass looks greener on the other side. Alas, there’s neither grass, nor greenery here
