Wedding AnniversaryThe film starts with Kahani (Mahie Gill) and her beau Nirbhay (Priyanshu Chatterjee), who decide to celebrate their first wedding anniversary in Goa as the place holds a special meaning for them. Kahani is very excited and makes various arrangements to surprise her husband.

But she receives a call from Nirbhay, saying that he missed the flight in order to meet a few people and grab a lucrative job opportunity. He promises to catch the midnight flight to Goa. Kahani is furious. She settles down with a book written by Nagarjun (Nana Patekar) and falls asleep while reading.

Shortly thereafter, the doorbell rings and a stranger enters her house. She manages to get him out but while doing so, realises that he is, in fact, Nagarjun. Kahani invites him back in. The two bond as Kahani shares her ordeal with him while Nagarjun decides to celebrate her wedding anniversary.

Over the next few hours, Nagarjun and Kahani get along like a house on fire. The duo explores Goa and spends some time together where he makes her realise what relationships are all about. Kahani keeps questioning him about life, love and relationships while Nagarjun offers some truly insightful answers.

Directorially, Shekhar S Jha fails to bring lout the essence of his story and misses the point right from the word go. His narrative lacks conviction while his ability to hold the story together lacks motive, hence leading the film to an abrupt end. The story progresses only post-interval and the film tends to drag in places.

Music and background score are just about average and the songs do not add to the screenplay. Editing could have been crisper. Cinematography is just about okay. Jha and his co-writer Rashid Iqbal fail to present a uniform narrative. The poor writing restricts the segue and in turn makes it a bumpy ride.

Performance-wise, Nana Patekar is at his usual best. But even his presence fails to save this sinking ship. Mahie Gill does justice to her part but is irksome in places. Priyanshu Chatterjee does a brilliant job with his part. The rest of the cast does well.

 Verdict: Flop
