First time director Nupur Asthana ensures that there are enough fun moments right through the proceedings which keep audience attention intact in 'Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge'. Also, though Facebook forms the starting point of it. Thankfully it doesn't turn into the core of MFK. Of course it is integral to the film but then the film is not all about social networking and eventually turns out to be one cute and enjoyable love story.

Vishal (Saqib Saleem) and Preeti (Saba Azad) can't stand each other's sight. On the other hand their respective friends, Rahul (Nishant Dahiya) and Malvika (Tara D'Souza) are the most desirable of them all in the campus. While Vishal feels that his heart beats for Malvika, Preeti finds Rahul's rockstar act enticing. As it turns out, they get talking on Facebook with the help of fake identities. But would that continue forever?

A basic plotline like this isn't really new actually. The tool may have changed, in this case Facebook, but people changing identities to get the love of their life has been witnessed before in movies as well as other form of literature. However it is the treatment that makes all the difference here.

So right from the first scene where a friend's MMS is uploaded on Facebook to the small fights that happen between the lead protagonists to the points where they get chatting with each other on the internet to the places where they are required to come face to face with each other to the tender moments when realisation dawns upon them that what they really felt in their hearts could be different from what they always thought they wanted, Nupur keeps the momentum intact, hence never failing to let go of audience attention.

Of course the film moves on predictable lines which means there are no major surprises anywhere. Also (thankfully) there are no heavy duty dramatic moments that would result in a yawn inducing moment. Yes, at a place or two you do feel that the energy is dipping but then that's just momentary as MFK doesn't take much time in coming back on tracks.

From performances perspective, the film livens up every time Saqib comes on screen. He is plain natural while his dialogue delivery catches your attention immediately. Saba gets her girl next door perfectly right and yet again what works in the actor's favour is a natural act. She is spontaneous to the core. Tara, who played Ali Abbas' girlfriend in 'Mere Brother Ki Dulhan', has a much bigger part to play in MFK and she does full justice to the opportunity that comes her way. Nishant has a limited part to play but is decent in whatever he does.

Other factors that go in the film's favour are it's dialogues (close to real life and most of the times quite witty) and music (lively and energetic). Though the film doesn't boast of a huge canvas, it looks good due to an impressive set design.

With Y Films last youth flick, 'Luv Ka The End', hardly managing to work, I had apprehensions galore about 'Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge'. I am so glad that expectations were at bare minimum because what unfolds on screen doesn't just turn out to be far above expectations; it is also a thoroughly entertaining affair that keeps the smiles on for those 100 odd minutes.
