Directed by Nupur Asthana
For the 25th anniversary of their college, Vishal Bhatt (Saqib Saleem) and Preity Sen (Saba Azaad) are both assigned to interview and photograph 25 couples whose romance has lasted since their college years. They absolutely hate each other. While Preity seems to be allergic to men, Vishal is busy falling for college hottie Malvika Kellar (Tara D’Souza). Knowing there is no way she would ever pay attention to him he pretends to be his rockstar friend Rahul Sareen (Nishant Dahiya)and sends her a friend request on Facebook. Little does he know that Preity has also taken her friend’s identity. They chat. They fall in love. Everything is great until Vishal asks Malvika out for a cup of coffee.
Muhjse Fraaandship Karoge brings energetic, new faces to the screen.The acting is natural, the dialog is entertaining, and the storyline does not drag. Like any Bollywood film, this does have some musical numbers. However, they are not overly dramatic. Overall, it is worth a watch if you are in the mood for a light-hearted romance comedy.
Directed by Pascal Chaumeil
Alex Lippi (Roman Duris) and his sister run a business designed to break up relationships. They will use any means necessary, except sex, to save women from egoists and good-for-nothings. As his brother-in-law says, “We open their eyes, not their legs.” Their only rule is to never break up a couple that is truly in love.
However, Alex finds himself having to go against this rule when hired by a rich man to break up the wedding of his daughter, Juliette Van Der Becq (Vanessa Paradis), and her fiancé Jonathan Alcott, who is portrayed by The Walking Dead‘s Andrew Lincoln. The only problem is that they have 10 days to do so. As impossible as this task seems, it is the only way to clear their ever-increasing debts.
Much of the entertainment comes from all the tricks Alex and his sister have to use to break this couple up — from staging a car robbery to destroying hotel rooms. The characters are relatable, funny, and have great chemistry. The picturesque backdrops are also pretty amazing.
