Jodi Breakers Movie Review – Average Fare

Jodi Breakers Movie Review – Average Fare

Jodi Breakers highlights the loss of romance in relationships today. But then one can also say that the same thing is happening with our movies as well, very less films are able to connect with the audience like the way they used to. One of them which just about manage to do so, is Jodi Breakers.

Story of Jodi Breakers:

Sid (Madhavan) is not only divorcee; but also a divorce expert, he is known to help people looking for divorce, get one for free. He has a partner in Sonali (Bipasha Basu); both of them are able to sort out the relationship problems of various couples by not only suggesting divorce but also helping the pair seperate without any legal hassle. However Sid- Sonali commit a blunder when they wrongly split a romantic couple (Milind Soman – Dipannita Sharma). Now the two experts are seized by a guilt trip, they decide to rectify their wrong doing by helping the couple fall in love all over again. One does not need to say that even Sid and Sonali fall in love with each other, while rectifying their professional mistake.

One may draw parallels for Jodi Breakers with the superhit Band Baaja Baarat (2010) where the professionally focused pair eventually get personal and fall in love. But while the par in Band Baaja Baarat ran a wedding planning business, Jodi Breakers has Madhavan and Bipasha Basu run a marriage breakup business. Apart from this foundational aspect of the film, everything else is quite similar to the 2010 blockbuster. For instance, even in Jodi Breakers, the couple gets physical with each other just before the interval and then they have the awkwardness between them, followed by the guy’s stand to be non-committal till the last few reels. Also quite like Band Baaja Baarat, the separated couple come together one last time for an assignment just for professional compulsions.

What works for Jodi Breakers:

The fresh pair of Madhavan and Bipasha Basu is as unconventional and endearing like Madhavan – Kangana Ranaut pairing in Tanu Weds Manu. The chemistry and performances of the lead pair is definitely worth a round of applause.

What does not work for Jodi Breakers:

Apart from the Band Baaja Baarat hangover, one is let down by the disoriented narrative, which shifts focus from Madhavan–Bipasha to Milind Soman-Dippanita Sharma. As an audience, by the time, you start empathizing for Madhavan and Bipasha, the focus is on the other couple’s life, which leads to confusion and boredom. Also the part of Sid and Sonali setting up the plan to get the estranged couple together has been seen before and looks clichéd rather than eventful. Some of the lines in the film are corny and crass, and could be done away with. The climax of the film though relevant to the tale, looks really tame.

Performances in Jodi Breakers:

Madhavan is supremely confident, cool and charming in the film. Bipasha Basu has acted well too but some of the scenes in which she tries to go extra cute, does not go well with her personality and looks artificial. Milind Soman and Dippanita Sharma are just about average.

Conclusion:

Jodi Breakers is not really a bad film but it is not a fascinating watch either. It is a feel-good film to kill time, if you have two hours to spare, that is.

Rating : *** (Above average)
