This is not a movie review, it is a recommendation! Go watch this asap, don't even bother reading reviews.
2011 has started off in an awesome way in terms of movies from the Hindi film industry. I saw Dhobi Ghat and liked it. But when I saw it, I knew most people would not like it simply because it is not the mass entertained kind of movie.
I was expecting the same when I went for Yeh Saali Zindagi and to my surprise it turned out to be an awesomely entertaining movie. The late night show was housefull and people were clapping at dialogues and laughing at every witty line.
I wont go into the storyline but all I can say is, I am sure you will like this movie. It is a must watch. Irfan Khan gets the perfect role, he underplays it to perfection. Chitrangada Singh is so beautiful that you can actually believe that a man would go to the extent that Irfan goes, for a woman like that. She acts pretty well too and is a treat to watch in each frame.
Saurabh Shukla does really well in his role and his timing is amazing. The movie has so many bit roles that are given to very talented actors that you wish the movie was longer and one could see more of the other characters.
The real credit for this movie should go to Sudhir Mishra. He has made a brilliant movie, really entertaining for all audiences. The male and female characters in the movie are all super interesting and every second of the movie is worth watching.
The music, is perfectly used throughout the movie. The best songs of the movie are 'Dil-Dar-Ba-Dar', 'Kaise Kahein Alvida' and 'Yeh Saali Zindagi (Duet)'.
Please go and watch this movie if you haven't already. It is totally entertaining and fun.
