This bland, sombre love story from the director of The Lunchbox (2013) lacks that film’s flavour. Rafi (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) is a struggling street photographer at Mumbai’s Gateway of India monument whose grandmother Dadi (an extremely lively Farrukh Jaffar) is refusing to take her medicine until he find himself a bride. At the Gateway, Rafi snaps a photograph of a shy accounting student called Miloni (Sanya Malhotra), and then sends it to Dadi to shut her up; naturally, Dadi travels to Mumbai to see for herself.
A chaste romance blossoms between Rafi and Miloni once he tracks her down, but Malhotra’s performance is too understated to convince that she is more than a blank slate for him to project his fantasies on to.
