Gul says, “We women must celebrate who we are – 20/30/40 or 50. And never settle for anything less than what we think we are worth!”

I guess its only fitting that I watched this movie by myself (without having to share my popcorn with anyone thank you very much) while the boyfriend was watching The Green Hornet in the next hall. (Brilliant compromise ladies, next time you don’t want to watch a shoot-em-up pick a chick flick that starts at the same time. It’s a little weird at first but 2 hours later you’ll be much happier I promise!) Alankrita Srivastava’s “Turning 30” is an unexpectedly true-to-life story of a girl/woman who is doing just that – turning 30 amidst a relationship breakdown, career crisis and overall wtf happened to my life feeling. Admittedly desi actors in an English language film can feel a little rough-around-the-edges but aside from a mild chuckle at the hammy ad agency execs I quite enjoyed the film. Also its a very good sign when Bollywood comes up with its own original chick flick set in Mumbai all by itself. *applause*

Special props to Jeneva Talwar who’s role as the BFF comes across as effortless and endearing. Obviously Gul Panag is beautiful and crazy (just like we all are ladies, from time to time) and you’ll even see ‘ol Daddy Windsong aka Sameer Malhotra giving acting another stab (I see we brought the hat along.) I also have to ask Purab Kohli to ixnay the carfsay, you are too cute for over-accessorizing.

Oh and would you judge me if I say I think the bachelorette party song was quite catchy? For a moment there I was worried they hired Ali, Mumbai’s only male stripper to perform, Lol. Well done Siddharth, Suhas the music is brill.
P.S. Gul, you’re not really a smoker are ya? Could tell :) xoxo
