Bhansali's Bawa Love Story...

By MovieTalkies.com, 24 August 2012 3 / 5

Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi Review In Brief
Two above 40 Parsis fall in love with each other and overcome all odds to be together…

Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi Review Verdict
Bela Bhansali Sehgal comes up with a sweet love story that could have been sweeter…

Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi Review Story Plot
Farhad Pastakia (Boman Irani) is a 40 something single Parsi man, who stays with his mother Nargis (Daisy Irani) and grandma (Shammi Aunty) in a sprawling Parsi home. Farhad works in a lingerie showroom and dreams of a perfect 'fall in love and get married' scenario. Things start looking good for the gentle Parsi when bubbly Shirin (Farah Khan) walks into his shop and sparks fly between the two.

However, when Nargis discovers that Shirin is the same Parsi Trust official, who authorized the demolition of an illegal water tank in the Pastakia household, she puts her foot down and makes her disapproval of the relationship very clear. How the above 40 lovers overcome odds to come together forms the rest of the story.

Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi Review Performances
Boman Irani is one of the finest actors in Bollywood and he proves this beyond a doubt once again. Boman's Farhad is the typical gentle Parsi character who immediately brings a fond smile to our lips. His mannerisms, body language and even his intensity in the one scene where he stands up to his mother is sure to impress one and all. On her part, Farah Khan, who makes her acting debut with the film brings her bubbly persona on screen as Shirin and simply wins your heart with her 'chubby cuteness', though her performance could have been better. Other actors like Daisy Irani, Shammi Aunty and the rest of the cast too perform brilliantly.

Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi Direction
Bela Bhansali Sehgal makes her debut as a director with this movie and we must say that Bela does not disappoint. There are a lot of sweet moments throughout the movie, though one does end up feeling that the humour is a bit forced at times. Moreover, Bela could have easily done away with some of the scenes that make Parsis look like a bunch of crazy old people, as those scenes do not even elicit an amused chuckle. (The 'eccentric Parsi' angle has been played again and again over the years, which was something that the makers of Ferrari Ki Sawaari understood perfectly and steered clear of). Another thing that Bela is guilty of is having a very clichéd and predictable climax, which is something of a letdown for viewers, who are expecting something different.

Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi Review Music
The movie has enough melodious songs like ishq mein tere bina, khatti meethi and kaafir andhere plus peppy numbers like the title track, kuku duku and ramba samba.

Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi Review Final Word
Do watch this movie to see the flawless Boman Irani in action alongwith veterans like Daisy Irani and Shammi Aunty, though we must warn that some parts might be quite disappointing…

Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi - Bag full of melody

By Reflections, MovieTalkies.com, 26 July 2012 3 / 5

Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi is an upcoming Bollywood romantic comedy which is made under the banner of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the man who is known for tellingsome fabulous love stories. The film casts Boman Irani as Farhad, a loving Parsi bachelor, and Farah Khan as Shirin - a suitable match, who is redefining her career in acting after fulfilling her highly successful ambition as a choreographer (and also taking it forward as a director). The soft and melodious music of this album by Jeet Ganguly (with lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya) adds another dimension to thecomic theme which is quite an experiment to watch for.

The album begins with the track Ishq Mein Tere Bina which has melodious vocals of Shreya Ghoshal who is accompanied by K.K. This number begins with soft and subtle instruments in the background that binds the romantic theme of the song. The impact of Shreya's vocals is really remarkable and charismatic as she portrays romantic mood in the song quite well. Amitabh's lyrics and Jeet's music go hand in hand, hence resulting in a captivating song that pertinently depicts the mood of the movie.

The magic continues in the voice of Shreya Ghoshal who arrives with the track - Khatti Meethi. Aura of her voice can be truly felt in the track which flows as smoothly as a stream of water with amazing play of guitar in background. This one actually paints a joyful mood. Amitabh's selection of words catches attention of the listeners.

The album moves ahead with another solo Kaafir Andhere, third straight piece of melody in the line-up which tries to express the melancholy in the some attention grabbing vocals of K.K. The track covers a journey from low to high notes where melancholy takes its peak in K.K's emotive vocals. Lyrics by Amitabh compliment depth of the pain here.

Mood is uplifted as one proceeds from a painful to a joyful number with the title track Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi. Neeraj Shridhar shapes up the theme of the album with some rap added on to good measure as well. Still, since the track is not something which could be termed as an out of the box piece, it may not be able to leave its mark.

There is good experiment coming into play with Mohit Chauhan being heard for the track Kuku Duku. The track goes well with the comic theme of the album with flavors of rock music being mixed. Lyrics by Amitabh are catchy but still could have added something more to this comic theme, hence making the song all the more attractive. Mohit is good as always and is matchless yet again.

What one misses though is a dance track that could have made you shake your leg. In Rhamba Mein Samba, Jeet tries to infuse this color too with the queen of Rhamba Samba music, Usha Uthup, but still falls short. The track is fine but not something which can actually be taken to the dance floor.

Overall, it's a good album with a bag full of melody due to vocals of K.K, Shreya Ghoshal, Mohit Chauhan, Usha Uthup and Neeraj Shridhar. Still, what makes it short on some counts is a missing dance number as well as some effective lyrics that could have brought on all dimensions of joy.
