Another superb heart touching and meaningful movie after a long time (I mean after “The Lunchbox”) from Bollywood. Just couldn’t resist a movie with that kind of casting – Farooq Sheikh, Sarika, Raghubir Yadav, Sharat Saxena, Suhasini Mulay, Zarina Wahab, Tinu Anand, Satish Shah and couple of more guys. As the title suggests – story of 60+ oldies and their struggle, the best part of the movie is the earnest and heartfelt performance by the entire cast, even a couple of songs are rightly placed which take the mood another couple of steps further. Nothing outstanding – it’s pretty predictable affair – I will call it a little slow too for people who like action / thriller / comedy, but for someone who enjoys meaningful movie giving you a good lesson on life – it’s an amazing piece of art. Raghubir Yadav at the helm of things – doing what he does best – play the character a little over the top still makes you feel for his character. Farooq Sheikh and Sarika as Doctor Couple were simply outstanding recovering from their son’s untimely death. Every oldie has his own story to tell which are so life like that you just can’t help but agree. I just didn’t like one character – the guy who plays Income Tax officer – I guess Zakir Hussain would’ve been the apt choice and could have played the role very convincingly still he was able to do well. I am sure a lot of friends will agree and laugh on these Oldies histrionics and we will definitely be doing exactly what they were doing the movie, Amen - to that. I will definitely give it a good three stars for its three stars and one for the handling hence it gets a 4/5 from me and a very high recommendation. This one cannot be missed.
