'Motichoor Chaknachoor' review: Fails to capitalise on the odd couple’s chemistry
The lazy pace of the movie is broken by moments of humour.
Pushpinder (Siddiqui), who is settled in Dubai, is a guy eager to get married and will settle for anybody. The story isn’t about childhood romance or love at first sight. The narrative picks up when Anita’s aunt (Karuna Pandey) tells the girl that her hunt for a suitable groom ought to end with Pushpinder. Even though the groom is much older than her, Anita sees logic in the match.
The film takes an entire half to set up the premise and takes another hour to unfold where Pushpinder and Anita’s story could be headed. The lazy pace of the movie is broken by moments of humour.
The film fails to capitalise on the odd couple’s chemistry. For a rom-com, that’s not a great thing. Siddiqui, however, livens up the screen in some of the scenes. Shetty makes an earnest effort and is likeable for the effortlessness with which she gets into her character.
