Jodi Breakers - External Reviews

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Jodi Breakers is another cold rom-com for this 'month of love'. There are a few moments where you begin to hope for chemistry between the lead pair only to see it fizzle away into a ridiculous story.

Thumbs down by Malvika Rao, BookmyShow ...Poor writing, lack of impactfull performances, humdrum dialogues, all lead to a very so-so film.... full review

Thumbs down by Smita, Desi Martini ...Very long and and poorly scripted. This is a yawn fest... full review

So-So by Rony D'Costa, Desi Martini ...Jodi Breakers is an attempted rom-Com filled with actors who are 30 and above but caters to neither Under -25 nor Over 25.... full review

Thumbs down by Kshitij, Desi Martini ...Flop Flop Flop... full review

Thumbs down by Kanika Sikka, DNA ...While the first half has moments that could keep you from rushing for the doors, the second half might just pressurise you to leave.... full review

Thumbs down by Mansi, Everything Movies ...Was the director in a rush to complete the film? Was he comfortable seeing these two actors in the same frame? Did they really hire a writer for this story?... full review

Thumbs down by Deepa Deosthalee, Film Impressions ...As for chemistry, it's the other couple, Milind Soman and Dipannita Sharma who have it in oodles (even though Soman hasn't learnt to act yet), while the lead pair bumble about ineffectually.... full review

So-So Free Press Journal ...Drawing humour from real- life situations seems to be an onerous task for our filmmakers so they resort to such fantasia, which eventually grates on your nerves.... full review

So-So by Nupur Barua, ...not to say that the cinematography is not excellent, but it all seems rather pointless. ... full review

Thumbs down by Martin D' Souza, ...test of the nerves... full review

Thumbs down by Rajeev Masand, IBN Live ...Packed with every standard romantic-movie cliché, 'Jodi Breakers' is a strain on your nerves, and it doesn't help that most of the cast is as dull as dishwater. ... full review

Thumbs down by Fatema H Kagalwala, India Entertainment ...The plot above doesn’t merely sound complicated but is as twisted.... full review

Thumbs down by Kaveree Bamzai, india today ...Omi Vaidya really has to find a new gag for himself. ... full review

Thumbs down by Shubhra Gupta, indian express ...'Jodi Breakers' may have started with an idea suited to light-weight rom coms, but despite a few flourishes, it stays firmly bird-brained.... full review

Thumbs up by Gaurav Malani, indiatimes ...Talking about the chemistry between Madhavan and Bipasha, while it's not bad, it's nothing more than functional. ... full review

Thumbs down by Komal Nahta, koimoi ...Business rating: 1/5 ... full review

Thumbs down by Shubha Shetty-Saha, MiD DAY ...Whatever happened to the twinkly eyed, charming Maddy, I don't know. Instead, what we get is an overweight, badly dressed with a strange fuzz on his chin-man, whom I refuse to recognise. ... full review

So-So Movie Talkies ...The twist in the tale is that while Jodi Breakers is definitely an original attempt, with a storyline that's 'hatke' and performances that charm, the film doesn't quite become what it could have been.... full review

Thumbs down by Karan Anshuman, Mumbai Mirror ...Perhaps the only character who stays true and consistent is Maggie. And Sharma does her job with conviction. One wishes that the others too had been written equally well.... full review

Thumbs down by Mansha Rastogi, Now ...The songs are needlessly placed in the film testing the patience of the audience further. Much to add to the annoyance, none of the sons except Kunwara are even pleasing enough. ... full review

Thumbs down by Savera R Someshwar, Rediff ...But Greece itself -- azure water, beautiful blue sky, white-washed buildings reflecting the brilliant sunlight -- is beautiful.... full review

So-So by Ruchi Mehta, Roochster ...Watch at home types... full review

So-So by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies ...While their chemistry is palpable and their acting personas complement each other, there’s something off about this pair. For one, the fit and over-groomed Bipasha looks way out of Madhavan’s league (overweight and unkempt in this film). ... full review

So-So by K N Gupta, ...The saving grace is the hat ke (different) subject that might arouse the curiosity of some, especially the youth... full review

Thumbs down by Swati Rohatgi, STARDUST ...While the two individually do a decent job, together show absolutely no chemistry whatsoever. The entire romantic angle between the two appears very forced and shallow. ... full review

Thumbs down by Anuj Kumar, The Hindu ...While in the French film, the detailing of the hard-to-believe profession was spot on, here even hardcore believers in Bollywood will find it blasphemous.... full review

Thumbs down by Reel Reptile, Upper Stall ...Every possible date-movie cliche is exercised with alarmingly enthusiastic hope, and Bipasha Basu is relegated back to the corner of the mannequin store.... full review
