User Reviews: Well, all were having high hopes from Anubhav Sinha after Tum Bin. But Anubhav Sinha – Priyanshu Chatterjee fails to live up to the audience expectation this time. But for me, I really really liked the film.

The story is about the suspended cop( Samar, played by Priyanshu Chatterjee) who comes to Calgary searching for a criminal and there he falls in love with a successful Indian businessman(Sam, played by Om Puri), who is very protective about her daughter( Pakhi, played by Sakshi Shivanand). There is also some other characters like Om Puri’s elder sister(Asha ‘Jiji’, played by Farida Jalal) who supports Pakhi and likes Samar very much. Om puri however isn’t sure about Samar and have some reservations about him.

The story is very much predictable and has been set up in Calgary where Anubhav Sinha shot Tum Bin. The story seems to be inspired from Father of the Bride.

What is special about the movie is the sweetness in the film. This is basically a romantic comedy and feel good type of cinema. Bond shown between father and daughter is very sweetly picturised and the scenes of Om Puri and Priyanshu are very humorous. Farida Jalal deserves special mention as the bond between her and Om puri as brohter sister bond is very warm and they really compliment each other. Priyanshu as the lead actor is really good. Sakshi does a decent job and she is looking beautiful throughout the film. Manoj Pahwa as Priyanshu’s friend does an excellent job.

Music of the movie deserves a metion. From Aisi Aankhein Nahi Dekhi to Baba ki rani ho, each song is soulful and touches your heart. The cinematography is breathtaking. Anubhav Sinha captures the beauty of Calgary very well.

As for direction, Anubhav Sinha has done a decent job in the movie.
