Our verdict: This film deserves a watch for its authentic telling of middle age romance in the times of dating apps.
The film traces the journey of two unusual individuals who meet via a dating app. While Irrfan is known for experimenting with his content, Malayalam actress Parvathy is making her Bollywood debut with the film which is far from her usual choices.
Looks like the film has struck the right chord, thanks to its characters and unconventional storytelling.
There is no falling in love at first sight, no classic bollywood romantic songs and no cheesy dialogues. Just, heartwarming. #QaribQaribSinglle— sameeksha dandriyal (@s_dandriyal) November 10, 2017
In an earlier interview, Irrfan had shared that he had a great time shooting the film with southern actress Parvathy, who is making her Bollywood debut with the film. "I'd like to quote what my character sings for Parvathy in the film, 'Bade acche lagte hain ye dharti, yeh nadiya aur tum', meaning 'I really like the earth, the rivers and you'. Working with her was a great experience -- just like the journey our characters go through in our film," he was quoted as saying.
