Mumbai Pune Mumbai (Marathi) - Notepad

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

A lovely take on arranged marriage though the "me better, me better" competition between Mumbai and Pune gets overbearing after the first few times. Yet, there is enough to take away from the film.

Plot Summary

Mukta Burve has made a day trip to Pune from her home town Mumbai to "see" a boy for a marriage alliance, the arranged marriage way. Walk along the town with her to see how she spent the day.

What Worked

  • The way an awkward moment between a guy and a girl is dealt with.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • The suddenness of the first intimate question. Looked mighty out of place.
  • Lousy background music.
  • The Sinhgad scene was a bit too long and dragged.
  • Mukta Burve's makeup.
  • The "palat" moment.
  • A relatively empty Pune railway station platform at 6pm for a train leaving for Mumbai. I think, I actually saw a guy run out of the camera frame, to keep the field clear. :)
