Qarib Qarib Singlle Storyline: Jaya (Parvathy) a 35-year-old-independent working lady is going through this journey called life alone. Doing daily mundane chores and helping her friends, neighbors, and being overly particular about things consume her entire day. After her husband’s demise, she did not let anyone enter her life. But now after 10 years of loneliness and society pressure, Jaya opens an account on a dating website. Enters Yogi (Irrfan Khan)! The quirky gentleman who is fondly known as Kavi sahib for being a shayar who has self-published six books in vain! Yogi is a fun-loving person with a weird sense of humour. The two extremely opposite individuals meet and then their story begins. Their sporadic meetings lead to a rather adventurous trip together. Will Jaya and Parvathy fall in love or remain qarib qarib single forever?
Qarib Qarib Singlle Performances: Needless to say, Irrfan Khan is a gem when it comes to acting. And, for a change in this film he is not very intense but a jolly person. His weird antics will give you lovable doses of laughter every now and then. Irrfan is one of the finest actors of Bollywood in a true sense.
Parvathy, who is a popular name in the South film industry debuts in Bollywood via this film. And, I must say, what an entry! She is just perfect for the role of Jaya. Her expressions, the way she emotes every scene, emotions, expressions are on point. I wish to see her in many more Hindi films soon!
Qarib Qarib Singlle USP: It is a light-hearted and a supremely entertaining film. It serves its purpose and you will walk out of the theatre with a smile. 😊 Tanuja Chandra’s way of story-telling is what I admire. I have read her first book Bijnis Woman and enjoyed the 14 short stories dearly.
Watch It or Just Skip? The editing could have been a bit crisp and tight. However, the humour keeps you going and the performances keep you involved in the narrative. It is a breezy film which can be a complete family entertainer. So, if you want to spend your weekend in theatres, Qarib Qarib Singlle can be a fun watch!
