Plot Summary

Aman (Arjun Rampal) has divorced Maya (Kajol) and is now seeing Shreya (Kareena Kapoor). Aman and Maya have three kids who are now to be told about Shreya. And that's not the only complication.

What Worked

  • The play in the beginning, which makes a statement, "without love there wouldn't be a happily ever after" sort of setting the tone for the film.
  • The shot of Kajol's eyes when she tells Arjun Rampal the big secret.

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

  • Each situation is either exaggerated or toned down - to unbelievability.
  • Kajol looked too old to be Arjun Rampal's wife.
  • Arjun Rampal looked too young to be a father of three and also he didn't look like the kind who would have not one, not two, but three kids.
  • The whole angry teenager daughter being bitchy. Her behavior doesn't look convincing.
  • The second half is more or less a snore-fest.
