Hasee Toh Phasee - Preview

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

A girl-meets-boy story with a difference. A girl-meets-boy story which works despite typical moments that qualify a film as a romantic comedy.

We have another round of romcoms on our cards in the coming few weeks. Starting with One by Two, to be followed by next week's release Hasee Toh Phasee. As most other romcoms appear in their trailers, this one too looks fresh and out there with its craziness.

Parineeti Chopra seems perfect for the completely zany character she is playing. But, my worry is the same that I have for all films which have hilarious dialogue in the promos - that is all there is. The movie will just be sewing those moments together. Hopefully, it won't happen here.

There is hope at the hands of vinil Matthew, because I've loved some of the ads that he has directed. Hasee Toh Phasee does have a very similar texture. Hope it has the same slight hand in the writing too.

On the other hand, given Parineeti Chopra's character, I don't quite get what the title of the film is all about. She doesn't remotely look like a person who can't look through a guy's intentions. I hope the title will be the only quibble I have against the film.
