Dil Kabaddi - Notepad

wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?)
quick review:

Variety is the spice of life, of married life, of sex out of married life. Ignoring the other aspects of relationships, sexuality in mid-life crises is explored via some good performances. Wish other aspects were acknowledged too.

Plot Summary

Mita (Soha ali Khan) just can’t handle her husband, Sumit’s (Irrfan Khan’s) unruliness and wild ways. Sumit can’t handle Mita’s prim and properness. Their good friends Konkana Sen Sharma-Rahul Bose are in trouble too, but don’t know it yet. How each one resolves his/her own mid-life crisis is what you are in for.

What Worked

  • Little thing like – the lovey-dovey couple in the car just after the titles to contrast with the mood Soha Ali Khan and Irrfan Khan are in. Then people watching a religious channel on a big, flat screen add to the humor.
  • The feeling that each one of us needs a psychiatrist, or a listening board, or an alter ego when characters are speaking to the camera.
  • Rahul Bose not willing to let his midnight shower go in vain.
  • Soha Ali Khan exuding her sexuality when her character wants to.
