List of Life Partner Reviews
You’ve seen all of it before.There’s a slim chance this film might not have been a complete write-off if the acting was a little inspired.But what are the chances of that?Indifferently directed by a filmmaker who thinks fancy South African locales and glossy production values can make up for the absence of a sensible script, this movie is a challenge to sit through.S**ist and offensive in portions, but plain dumb for the most part, Life Partner can be safely missed. I’m going with one out of five and a thumbs-down.Do yourself a favour and find a better way to spend your two hundred bucks.
It’s loud. It’s over the top. It has Genelia forcing you to reach out for earplugs, ever so often. And yet it’s easy timepass.Credit it to the comic timing of Govinda who manages to make slapstick seem funny, despite his guest appearance kind of role.Or credit it to a mere peppering of some really funny sequences, specially a cameo from Jagdeep who steals the show with mere grunts and half-sentences. Actually speaking, Fardeen and Tusshar too manage to hook your attention with their exuberance.Intermittently light and breezy, Life Partner makes for weekend viewing.
LIFE PARTNER isn’t innovative or ground-breaking, but it’s interesting and entertaining. One may assume that it’s a nonsensical comedy, but it isn’t. Instead, it’s a ‘family film’ [a popular term for socials/paarivaarik films within the industry]. It gives you a sneak peak into the lives of two couples — one, who believes in love marriage and the other, who believes in arranged marriage. LIFE PARTNER entertains, makes you laugh [at even silly jokes] and keeps you hooked for most parts of the film. It’s only the climax that acts as a spoilsport. To sum up, LIFE PARTNER carries no buzz and also the baggage of zilch expectations. But this film springs a pleasant surprise. You leave the auditorium with a smile, not a smirk!
Under normal circumstances, this would seem like a no-nonsense film about genuine issues. But in Jaffrey’s human zoo, it’s impossible to grasp anything without a pinch of salt. For one, characters don’t react. They scream. Correction, shriek. And all that ear-splitting humour gets jarring after a while. Secondly, Life Partner successfully establishes the crisis of the newly-weds but ends up sorting things between them in a hopelessly shoddy and unconvincing fashion, resorting to hare-brained twists and ridiculous logic.

It’s fairly easy to write off a film like this. The plot is another predictable attempt at recreating the success of No Entry. And quite frankly most of the jokes are very silly. But there is still something, which prevents the movie from falling apart. The production values are tacky and music is nothing to hum about. Even the climax is predictable. Yet Life Partner, is something you can watch with your family. It’s far from smart, but trust me a lot of people out there are going to find it too damn funny.
Genelia’s irksome act irritates beyond the boundaries of her character as her nagging gets on your nerves. Her dialogue delivery no more sounds cute, as she cuts out each word from her lines and individually stresses on them. Fardeen Khan looks literally harrowed. Prachi Desai gets into the idiot box family drama mode. A topless Tushar Kapoor is clearly avoidable. Amrita Rao and item girl do not suit in the same line. Govinda exudes immense screen presence despite having less screen time. Anupam Kher is repetitive while Darshan Zariwala hams.Keep your partner away from this and life will be happier.
