plot

With time the intimacy in most marriages falls apart. But not Sid and Trisha’s marriage... They just can’t keep their hands of each other in spite of being married for years! But Sid has a secret behind this: "When I make a mistake, I say sorry... And when my wife makes a mistake, I say sorry!" This diffuses conflict in a mar...more

Verdict

“A refreshing take on contemporary Shaadis which is brought down by Side Effects like a lofty screenplay and excessive length. One time watch for Farhan Akhtar and some laughs.”

There was actually a HBO series by that name (The Mind Of A Married Man) and last night's film excursion reminded me of just that. Yes, some of us may find that portions of SKSE were premised on the same cliches; but they were OUR cliches and that is what is important.

So a young, 'urban' Double Income No Kids couple have a good thing going. The husband thinks the secret of his marriage is to be non confrontational and "apologize for both of us"; the wife has kept her husband on a Need To Know Basis when it comes to what she feels (and more important what her mother feels) about their relationship. Add to that a healthy dose of Strangers Meeting At A Bar fantasies and well they are set.

Until.

Until the side effects that is the morning after of their fantasy weekend at a hotel is there...and the two have to understand that the "best laid plans of mice and men"..well they do go awry.

For a change one cannot fault the performance of any of the cast. Stellar all of them.

However the true droolsworthy character in the film--and whom many of us will be dreaming of bringing back home is the Mary Poppins bai/ Mujhe Aunty Bulao home help played by Ila Arun. Like cats with a mouse, I think the writers (and the director) have been very cruel in doing khilwad with the emotions of many a harried mom...sigh! hamare sapno ki home help is out there somewhere and SKSE just showed us a glimpse of her.

I will thoroughly recommend SKSE.

Shaadi and kids perhaps not so much.
