Dil Kabaddi - External Reviews

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.
