  1.  Hasee Toh Phasee is a triumph of emotions over intelligence 9 June, 2014 On
    What if Ranchhodas Chanchad aka Rancho from 3 Idiots was a girl and forsaken by her family for her queer ways of getting things done her way? You get Meeta, gleefully played to perfection by Parineeti Chopra. So much so that your heart goes out for her every time she sneaks into her home just to catch a glimpse of her father, despite her backstory being half-baked enough for anyone with an iota of logic – a feat that can only be achieved through a well-written screenplay.

    Armed with peppy music by Vishal Shekhar (‘Shake it like Shammi’, ‘Manchala’ and ‘Zehnaseeb’ fit into the narrative seamlessly, while ‘Drama Queen’ and ‘Punjabi Wedding Song’ are more of loo breaks) power-packed performances by the lead pair, Siddharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra, director Vinil Mathew ensures that your emotions triumph over your intelligence through a rollercoaster of a ride called Hasi Toh Phansi.

    Peppered with emotional scenes and humour (the midnight balcony scene between Siddharth and Manoj Joshi, the sauna meeting with Tinnu Anand, and the Anu Malik-inspired character trying to curb his ‘singing urge’ when he isn’t supposed to, are indeed hilarious), the film’s writing is so restrained that it does away with every cliché you expect in such genre, including marathon of a monologue by the hero to the heroine’s father (Last seen in Chennai Express) – writer Harshvardhan Kulkarni, take a bow.

    They say the best cinematography in a film is where you don’t notice that the cinematography is beautiful. Sanu John Varughese scores here for keeping it simple. As a viewer, you seldom notice how beautifully he has captured the moments shared by Nikhil and Meeta, which is an achievement for every cinematographer worth his salt.

    Actor Siddharth Malhotra’s Nikhil is a character one can relate to and lends an empathetic tone to a role generally approached as a cute guy with bushy eyebrows, syrupy expressions, sugar-coated lines, cheesy plot, and unmistakable puppy-dog loyalty. Did you just say Imran Khan?

    Siddharth, with his commendable charm, makes his presence felt despite locking horns (and lips) with the fiery-feasty Parineeti Chopra. If any filmmaker ever dares, I repeat ‘dares’ to attempt yet another remake of Zanjeer and Sholay, Siddharth is sure to bag the roles of Vijay and Jai Dev, and he’d surely not disappoint. Blasphemy did you say? You got to watch ‘Hasee toh Phasee’ to buy this.

    Parineeti Chopra seems to have grabbed the film by its collar and owns every frame of it. Having said that, Manoj Joshi is someone who rightly deserves every accolade in best supporting actor for his nuanced performance and surprisingly restrained performance, which is a far cry from what he has been doing in Priyadarshan movies. While we’re at it, I’d like to mention the scene where Parineeti’s character confesses that she had stolen money from him and he looks at her intently to ask, ‘To fir churaaya?’ This line is punctuated by silences which are so eloquent that you wish to hang on to every moment of it.

    Interestingly, the film ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ has shades of its producers Karan Johar (In the wedding songs), Vikramaditya Motwane (In the childhood version of Siddharth’s character where he fools a hawaldaar to watch Agneepath reminds of the ‘Kantilal ke angoor’ scene from Udaan), and Anurag Kashyap (In the dialogues written by him, especially the ‘emotional dhakkan’ scene).

    The only things that don’t work for the film are its harebrained title and equally silly backstory of Meeta being forsaken by her family (‘Love Shuv Tey Chicken Khuraana’ used the same lame cliché but with conviction) – all forgiven as long as one forgets to tweet while watching the film. Am glad I didn’t.

  2.  Rivetting performance from Parineeti Chopra 9 July, 2014 On
    It had been a longtime since I opined about a Bollywood movie, the reasons for which happens to be its duration and there was nothing that caught my attention or even the slightest bit of intrigue. So let me just a stretch a bit. Hasee Toh Phasee was something I initially turned my back on thinking its your usual romcom then I decided to give it a chance, just for Parineeti Chopra. It was anything BUT your usual romcom. There were indeed antiques of it from time to time but it was much more enjoyable thanks to the film’s slightly artsy production. Unlike the typical Bollywood romcoms ‘cheesy’ had not been served hot from frame one but as I said there were scenes that constantly reminded you that you were indeed watching one.

    Parineeti Chopra just steals the show. She’d already proved her talents with her debutante performance in Ladies Vs Ricky Behl and through out her career till date she has done nothing but racked up commendation. She never did really improve. Why? Coz there was no need for improvisation. She was doing the best, bringing her own brand of acting to whichever roles she played in. And in Hasee Toh Phasee’s oddball, innocent Meeta, is the more diverse side of her acting we get to see. I haven’t seen Sidharth Malhotra’s Student of The Year so I had nothing to compare his performance to and I found it a good thing. I was in for Parineeti and I got served but what surprised me was Sidharth as well. Sidharth’s Nikhil Bhardwaj, despite his cold steel looks, was convincingly acted out. Special mention goes to the strong supporting cast as well, be it Manoj Joshis performance as the subtle and loving father or Ada Sharma’s ab initio knockout-turned-bitch. Brownie points goes to that uncredited actor who plays Nikhil’s cousin who breaks out into weird Anu Malik acapellas and twitchy dance moves at the slightest excuse. Scenes with him and Nikhil’s paranoid ex-cop dad (played by Sharath Saxena) had me in splits.

    Vishal Dadlani’s music had been spot on, catchy tunes further adorns the romance and festive visuals Be it the funky Shake it Like Shammy or the soothing Zehnaseeb, it goes perfectly in sync with it all. And ofcourse it wouldn’t be complete if I dont quote something on Drama Queen track and what more to add than its great to shake a leg.

    Debutant Vinil Mathews’ Hasee Toh Phasee is a modestly entertaining movie but not without flaws. A level of Bollywoodism in certain spots borders on mundane and had it not been there I would have loved it even more. Lets not forget that Hasee Toh Phasee becomes a bit tiresome towards the end what with it being victim to our usual chunk of Bollywood cheesiness. But a lot of heartfelt moments and earnest performances overshadows those, making it a pocket-sized enjoyable one time flick. And if it still doesn’t sound appealing, watch it for Parineeti’s efficaciously riveting performance.

  3.  Regular romantic comedy 9 June, 2014 On
    Nikhil and Karishma are dating from 8 long years. After 7 years of fights and patch ups, Nikhil proposes and Karishma accepts. They get married. Problem arise when Meeta, daughter of Karishma enter the scene. It becomes a love triangle when Karishma asks Nikhil to take care of Meeta. Nikhil and Meeta fall in love.

    Siddharth Malhotra in his second movie is adorable and doesn't look a newbie. Parineeti has potrayed a challenging role. Screenplay is good and the music is soothing. A directorial debut is praise worthy.
