Like it! Really amazing it is! I watched it just day before and I'm more than impressed with the movie. I should have watched this first day only. Really amazing!

One would expect a better film from Bhansali Productions.

To be honest I was not so impressed with the film. The music was atrocious. There was absence of melody. Also may be my sense of humour is much stronger. Jokes about farting do not chuckle me at all. I did not laugh at all in the movie.
Boman Irani is the only saving grace in the movie. It is definitely a bold attempt but could have been a quality attempt. Sanjay should have composed the music. His 'Guzarrish' compositions are unbeatable.

Decent movie
by Prashanth DSouza on Aug 28, 2012 03:23 PM

This is a well made movie, though I agree with the reviewer that the songs are misplaced and in fact they don't add to the story. However, the acting is above par, and the movie tries to do away with stereotypes, which makes it a fresh watch, even if the story is a tad predictable.

Boman and the rest of the cast really put their backs into it, and the results show. It is a movie which has a lot of underlying messages, which are not stated and need to be understood with respect to the narrative itself.

Also stereotypes such as young heroes with six pack abs are challenged, with the hero being a person in the mid-40s who is not successful with women (due to his unconventional job) and also boasts of a family pack around his waist. There are no apologies for all this, and that's what makes it an eminently watchable movie. Although the movie will not challenge and change Bollywood's stereotypes, it is still nice to see it cock a snook at the typical masala films.

If you are the type who has a taste for Adam Sandler or Ben Stiller's type of movies, this might just work for you.

If you need to get your masala fix, music, hunks, babes and vendetta, this might not be the right movie for you.

rocks the movie! Farah shudn't have been casted. Couldn't they pick a Parsi female lead - Perizad Zorabian or Gul Panaag?

Shirin Farad ... is one of the best movies of Indian Cinema
by Kolhapur Ratna on Aug 26, 2012 06:07 AM  | Hide replies

Shirin Farad ... is one of the best movie of Indian Cinema. It will be considered all the great movie and it will be in all time top 3 movie along with Guru Dutts Pyasa. The acting of Farah Khan is simply superb and she has shown with her acting skills that she is best actress in the world. I am sure this movie will break into 300 Crore club soon. I request government of India to give 100% tax break to the movie so that every Indian can watch this all time great movie. I request the concerned authorities to send this movie as India's entry at Oscars. I am sure this movie will sweep all the oscars and set a new record.
