    Is there justice in the world ????

    The answer is no......
    At least not for women in India.....
    And certainly not for women who cross the limit in sexual relations with men outside marriage....or rather before it.....

    Deepika Padukone has to learn this lesson the hard way.....

    She is the original wild child , a girl as free as the wind---who openly shashays in revealing clothes , sizzles in red bikinis and changes boyfriends at the drop of a hat.....only after she has tried them and tired them out in the bedroom.....

    While we pray at temples , her temple is the discotheque where she is the diva who brings zing and life to the dance floor.....
    And the offerings she receives at this temple is the bottle of liquor which also fills up her refrigerator so much so that it is difficult to find even a glassful of milk there.....

    But she has heart of gold , really.....

    Otherwise who would give asylum to a poor benighted girl who has come from India only to be told by her so-called ' husband ' that he has married her only for her dowry and now its time to kick her out ??
    Coming to this so-called ' husband ' , one wonders what a fool he is to marry a girl like Diana Plenty only for her dowry.....
    .....For she's the perfect wife material---fair , delicate , pure---the type of girl one takes to your mother.....
    In fact instead of taking dowry , I would have PAID dowry for getting her like the muslims do as meher :laugh:

    But after being dumped , Diana is given a home to live in by warm hearted Deepika.....

    But little does Deepika know that her life is going to undergo a cataclysm due to this....

    For through Diana she comes into contact with Saif who is exactly like her---a philanderer who moves from girl to girl and as Deepika confesses after he starts bedding her , is hot in bed.....

    This first half is thoroughly enjoyable with wisely cracked jokes permeating the atmosphere---and adding to the fun is Boman Irani and Dimple Kapadia who play Saif's uncle and mom respectively.....

    But the movie turns serious in the second half due to a predictible twist---its time for all to get mushy and fall in love.....

    So Saif and Diana fall in love with each other , but there's a spanner in their works.....Deepika the sexy bad bitch has fallen in love too , and to who else but to Saif.....

    But to again ask---is their justice in the world , and if there is then is it there for women.....?

    Consider this---the director has no problem with making Diana fall in love with Saif who is a notorious womaniser who sleeps with woman after woman......
    ......But he has a problem with making Saif fall in love with Deepika who is exactly like him in all ways....
    No no no no , not exactly like him ashdoc , have you forgotten the teeny weeny fact that she is a woman.....
    And that fact makes a helluva lot of difference to the world's perception of her philandering ( thats called being used by men ) and Saif's philandering ( thats called being James Bond ).

    And so the director settles for a disappointingly conventional ending.....

    So you know who gets whom....and who is left high and dry in the end.....

    Maybe as consolation the director gives the acting honors to Deepika who perfectly shows the pain of feeling used and abused and gives free vent to her feelings of jealousy like a woman scorned.....

    Verdict---I must confess its a good watch.....

    Well in the real world, it is the woman who gets justice if she is educated, today girls do multitasking, and boys are like toys if honest. In 75% college love affairs, girls marry the boy of their parent's choice and forget the boy with whom she was in love, and he suffers the Bewafai.:taunt:

    Remember girls are called Beloved=be loved, one who is loved (or in other words one who does not love :D), and boys are Lovers= one who loves, and guess who suffers the most pain ?!:rolleyes:
