Beating the same bush isn't something off-the-wall when it comes to tinsel town. 'Life Partner' isn't a mind-boggling flick as another release for this week. You wouldn't feel anything new and innovatively spelled by filmmaker Rumi Jaffrey. He strictly imports mirthful-ingredients from previous flicks. It may strike you with puzzled thoughts: whether to watch it or not?
Don't worry! The clichéd patterns don't seem to be party-pooper. Possibly, it engrosses on many parts from alpha-till-omega. But it's advisable not to get engaged with high expectations before watching it.
As we say, just book your tickets and watch it exclusively to enjoy sans cognizance...
Companionship, togetherness, love... marriage; the phrase 'Life Partner' has different connotations for different people. There is someone made for everyone, including Karan, Bhavesh and Jeet.
'Life Partner' is about three protagonists struggling on the marital marathon but on different tracks - three good friends with three different approaches to life.
Karan (Fardeen Khan) and Sanjana (Genelia D'Souza) are madly in love with each other. Marriage is the next step to cement their relationship. But is 'love marriage' the right way to be?
For Bhavesh (Tusshar Kapoor), his life partner, Prachi (Prachi Desai) comes with the approval of his family. But is 'arranged marriage' the way forward? Is it right to prioritize family over marriage? Does Prachi have to prove herself as a worthy daughter-in-law to qualify as an ideal wife?
Jeet (Govinda) is an accomplished divorce lawyer who does not believe in the institution of marriage. He can't be monogamous and is often responsible for his getting his clients divorced. But is 'no marriage' the right policy? Will Jeet ever find a partner and accept matrimony?
Govinda, who just slipped down every time from fetching his success has excelled for best appreciations... Praise him for his convincing act on slapstick tracks. 'Star of the show' -Genelia D' Souza swaying with much more matured performance on every frame...The belle transfixed you not simply with enchanting looks and well on her performance. But one really wonders on her earnest efforts of damaging your eardrums. Oops! The screams with the high-pitched tone for no reason. Anyways that's quite enjoyable on few parts. Tusshar Kapoor does-deliver a convincing takes an all portions while Prachi Desai strides with commendable show. Fardeen Khan is quite good, but looks slightly diffident. Incisively, Rumi should've paid attention to this diminishing factor.
Pritham horns up loud with his musical score and you know, it's more implying with 'Kuke Kuke'. Nothing much impressive on background score. Looks like Rumi didn't get on for any discussions with his cinematographer. It's more revealing with unspecified blatant flaws.
The film starts off well with a same-patterned issue of young lads and their problems and does evoke laughter with enjoyable quotients. But later towards the second half, something is really dragging with screenplay. However, things are sorted during climax and Rumi gets away with passable show.
'Life Partner' - Go ahead watch it and enjoy. It's best to kill your time.
Verdict: Passable show
Rating : ** ½
