Ashwani Chaudhary made his debut with a respectable film called Dhoop in 2003. There has been nothing mentionable post his debut. R.Madhavan has had a good 2011 with Tanu Weds Manu. Bipasha Basu has been struggling for a decent hit since Race(2008). The only thing that could have saved this combination and the film was good word of mouth. They arent getting it from me atleast.
Whats it about? R.Madhavan is a divorce expert who himself is just divorced. He meets Bipasha Basu who becomes his partner in this business and Jodi break karte karte you know what happens. All this happens on one of their case involving Milind Soman, Dippanita Sharma and Mrinalini Sharma.
How is it? Okey Dokey
Why? Even though the script thinks it has created enough complications to engage you there is nothing engaging except watching the beautiful locales of Greece for the little time that the film decides to shift there. Note to filmmakers when shooting abroad please set your scenes in the outdoors and please take lots of wide shoots. At least then some boring films can be watched as a travelogue. Madhavan tries his best to fit into a role that was clearly not meant for him. The kunwara kunwara song in the beginning is enough to put you off. Bipasha is thankfully bearable. Milind Soman is in a tintin like hairstyle and comes across completely disinterested. Dippanita has a why was I chosen for this role? expression. Mrinalini Sharma is the only one who fits the role and performs it well. From the time I saw DTBHJ I have become allergic to Omi Vaidya. I will have to carry Avil the next time I enter a film starring him. The only thing that brought a smile to my face was seeing Helen on screen.
Final few words Jodi Breakers is an attempted rom-Com filled with actors who are 30 and above but caters to neither Under -25 nor Over 25.

Ticket Meter not worth stepping into the theatre
