How much can your dad screw up your life? In this warm-hearted romantic comedy, Bollywood star Rishi Kapoor plays a clumsy, well-meaning father who has just lost his wife. His wannabe rock-star son Kabir’s annoyance with his dad finds all roads of communication between them shut down. The father’s cranky neighbours suggest a plan to him – find a dormant Facebook profile of a pretty girl, take it over and friend his son. Kabir soon takes the bait and begins to confide in and take advice from this attractive new stranger. Everything runs smoothly, until the young woman whose avatar has been hijacked bumps into Kabir at a gig. Director Leena Yadav masterfully interweaves refreshing portraits of Indian youth, aided by Donald McAlpine’s (Moulin Rouge!) stunning cinematography.
