Story: Jay (Teeshay), a 35-year-old aspiring filmmaker refuses to settle down. Given his morose professional and personal life, his friends and family believe an arranged marriage could do the trick. However, they soon discover that Jay still longs to meet Vedika (Tara-Alisha Berry), the stranger he fell in love with 14 years ago.

They believe he needs closure. The story then goes into flashback mode, taking us into the first and only chance encounter that Jay had with Vedika in Goa. It doesn't take long for the two to realize that they are perfect for each other but destiny had other plans.

Review: Contrary to the title, the film is not as generic as you'd expect it to be. It even has one of the most interesting opening scenes - a parody on the 'anti-smoking' public interest commercials that bug most filmgoers. It shows how unrequited love is equally 'hanikarak for our sehat'. Jay's take on love and relationships is intriguing. He confides in a stranger, feels connected to her more than his best friend and hopes she's the one for him, even without knowing her surname. The world keeps reminding him that the clock is ticking and it's high time he 'settles down' like normal people his age but he begs to differ.

However, what begins as an interesting tale on serendipity and conversation romance on the lines of Before Sunrise (1995) and Before Sunset (2004), gets too philosophical to digest after a while. You wonder why two youngsters in their mid 20's harp on things like reincarnation and childhood trauma. This is where the drama loses grip and ends up becoming a conventional love story.

Lead actors Teeshay, Tara-Alisha Berry are perfectly cast as they do a commendable job, despite being newcomers. We wish the story and dialogues had more substance like its iconic Hollywood predecessors for us to feel for their characters. The film may not be 'perfect' per se but has its heart in the right place. The cinematography deserves a special mention as well.
