First Impressions – Dhoondte Reh Jaaoge

This film is really, really good! I loved it!

Sonu Sood is fabulous! His resemblance to Amitabh Bachchan made the theme of ‘Twilight Zone’ go off in my head. My God, who would’ve thought! The guy is really pleasing to watch. (I do think he’s going to be my soft, fuzzy crush for a bit now). Kunal Khemu is so easy… you have such a good time laughing at his antics that you need to stop to realize the guy is doing a great job. I like him, from 'Kalyug' days. I think he’s a good actor.

Paresh Rawal is…well, he just is…and that’s enough. Johny Lever – him I found funny after, I think, 10 years or so. And Soha Ali Khan – gosh! She is just so pretty! There should be a glass doll made like her and kept in a crystal museum! I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I think the lady has this quiet grace and dignity that comes with faultless lineage. And she brings exactly that to her performances. There’s nothing loud about the way she speaks or dances. She’s just…so pretty!

The end – an India-Pakistan debate sort of thing – was a bit clichéd, but overall, the film is a great stress-buster.

I really hope this movie does well! I wasn’t expecting too much out of this film. And I definitely didn’t expect rooting for the cast, but I guess stranger things have happened. (Like Sonu Sood being Amitabh Bachan’s Dorian-Gray sort of avatar.)

And Soha – she is so p.r.e.t.t.y. Hmm, maybe she’s my soft fuzzy crush now.
