Towards the end,there is a dialogue of Munna about Arun"Kya,pata,kahi,pehli,biwi,ka,paas,chala,na,jaye!".
I find similarity in real life Kiran Rao and Monica Doggra's movie characters.Both are fan of camera and falling for a married man !
It seems Kiran Rao still has some doubt that Amir Khan may return to his first wife.This is salt in the wound of the first wife,the dialogue could have been avoided.
TanpuraAndRaag based back-ground score took me back to Shyam Benegal and Kalpana Lajmi's movies,it seemed to be a inspiration from there.Sometimes,backgroud music also had a mystic touch and seemed like back ground track of "KoiMilGaya".
Direction was 10 % slow and story was 20% over-intellectual.
Electronic drum beats was not necessary in the music at the end when names were shown,drum beats were against the mood of the movie.TanpuraGuiter would have served the purpose...
Prateik Babbar is promising,Monica is beautiful and Amir is awesome !However,excessive smoking of Amir was not necessary,it made the film look more pseudo-intellectual..
The movie's name DhobiGhat is also pseudo because there was nothing much about the DhobiGhat but more about the mumbai life in dingy environments,it could have been named as "My days in Mumbai" instead !
Over all,I encourage Kiran Rao and Amir Khan together to promote serious movies,but this one had no message at all.Kiran has potential as

as a director,she is sincere but she should reduce intellectuality because the best movies in the world are most simple whether made by AkiraKurusawa or SatyajitRay !
And I have a request to Amir,please donot lobby to send this movie to Oscar because it is not an Oscar material because that will kill the prospects of a better film of some smaller human being...
Now all these Badaus like SRK, Amir and Salman to play Character roles like Sanjay Dutt otherwise public will throw all these Badaus as they did with Dev Anand in 70. These Badaus looks like father of their heroines in songs.

Balls....Amir Khan is a media creation....he is so full of himself ...it stinks.
He is a mediocre actor and just his good luck that the media glorifies him. The same thing will happen with Imran Khan... Mr perfectionist? Bull.... He had a child with a gori and actually asked her to abort....he just pays the media not to write anything bad about him. He has been a womaniser and cheated his way all his life, ask his ex wife how much of a perfectionist he is. No sir he is very average.....
