Farhad Pastakia (Boman Irani) has a dream job as a bra-and-panty salesman. Except that he is a 45-year old Parsi bachelor still living with his overbearing mother and grandmother. But it's not like he's stopped trying. Desperate to get him married, Farhad's mother drags him to see women and even to embarrassing Parsi matrimony services. In the midst of all the daily humdrum, Farhad meets the woman of his dreams: Shirin Fugawala ('Farah Khan'), who drops by his store. Shirin, who works at the Parsi Trust, hits it off with Farhad from the start. Everything seems to be perfect and Farhad gets ready to introduce Shirin to his mother. But mummy becomes the villain in their story when she discovers that Shirin is the devious Parsi Trust Secretary who got the illegal water tank in their home demolished. The water tank being the 'aakhri nishaani' of Farhad's late father doesn't help matters. The ups and downs in Shirin-Farhad's relationship and how the two try to make it work is the rest of ...Written by
'Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi' is a cute film, but a tad predictable, as well. However, Boman Irani steals the show with a heartfelt performance!
'Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi' Synopsis: Two middle aged unmarried people find love & decide to settle down.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Story has its share of cute moments. The romance between its middle-aged protagonists touches your heart & the dialogue, also, are sweet. But, the second-hour is dragging. Also, this ideally should've been a song less film. The songs look out of place & add to the film's stilted pace.
Bela Bhansali's Direction is simple. Cinematography is picture-perfect. Editing needed more crispness.
Performance-Wise: Boman is the lifeline of the enterprise. He's wonderful. Farah Khan's raw performance is satisfactory, as her character demands the brashness. Daisy Irani irritates. Shammi Aunty is simply adorable. Kavin Dave is fantastic in a brief role.
On the whole, despite its flaws, watch it for Boman's act.
