Reema Kagti and Zoya Akhtar make a stunning team together. Reema is a genuis; Zoya added her brilliance. This is a highly messed up story of an even more messed up family. It all happens on a cruise, where they bring everyone's life to the table without roaming into the past and get things even more messed up to create gigantic conflicts.
This is a story about family issues. One of Zoya's favorite genres including adventure; travel and trips to be honest.
I have known Zoya well, the films she chooses, her usual casts. There is hardly any movie where she has disappointed. If there is any, pardon me, I haven't watched.
The casting was amazing here. Ranveer, Farhan, Priyanka, Massey, they were exceptional. Anil, always, is. It was magnificent to see, how they brought everyone's life, little things, issues, social issues, to the table to make things completely messed up on a cruise trip. I am repeating messed up these many times since this is the second most messed up Hindi language movie I have watched in my whole life, first one, Welcome, being my all time favorite.
It was very slow burn. Few things weren't even required although the first fifteen minutes was just the introduction where they revealed only important things. Cunningly, they kept creating conflicts from then only to solve all at once at the climax.
This was really a tough story to write and direct, a job well done I must say.
Few more things, it was a brave and very good decision by Zoya not to cast her favorite actress in this movie. Two, I loved Galla Goodiyan song and the choreography along with the song's timing.
The song with Ranveer and Anushka was completely futile.
On the occasion of their 30th wedding anniversary, Kamal and Neelam and their adult children Ayesha and Kabir invite their family and friends on a cruise. Amid much celebration and revelry, long-suppressed emotions, resentments, and insecurities emerge that might tear them apart completely--or bring them closer than ever before.
