Rating:- 4/5 Stars
After Hindi Medium, Irrfan Khan makes a splash one more time with Qarib Qarib Singlle, a film which is the Bollywood debut of the south sensation Parvathy and we must say that she has entered in Bollywood on the right foot!
To give you all a jist, the film tells the story of two individuals who are totally different from each other. The two meet through a dating app. Although the two are polar opposites, there must be some truth to the phrase opposites attract! So, while giving the coffee business the time of their lives, Yogi (played by Irrfan Khan), chooses to take Jaya (Parvathy) on a trip that NO sane man will ever think of – a trip to meet three of his ex-girlfriends.
From there on, it’s the picturesque locations, a whole lot of emotion and a madness-laced joy ride that one clearly shouldn’t miss!
While one would expect to get entertained while walking into the theatres, one will also walk out with a message that although there exists an idea of a perfect human being, nobody’s really perfect. In fact, some fun bits of life only exist simply because we are imperfect!
Irrfan Khan! One clearly can’t have enough of the man’s charming wittiness! It always looks like the man is in the character when without doing anything really. He and Parvathy have some really cutesy moments that you cannot help but smile at. A film is supposed to touch a sweet spot within us as human beings and this Qarib Qaib Singlle pair does just that!
Although Irrfan might be the leading man with his spectacular performance, as usual, the women really shine brightly with this flick! Special mention goes to Tanuja Chandra and Kamna Chandra, who have directed and written this film respectively. We recommend that you look up their filmographies for it is then you will realize that they are nothing short of gems that Indian cinema has created.
And Parvathy! Of course. The woman left us charmed and how! Here’s to seeing more of her in Hindi cinema.
So, there you go. Another relatable story with the right amount of entertainment value which will be with you for weeks after you have walked out of a theatre hall.
