The romantic comedy Muskurahatein is set to hit theatres this weekend, along with a bunch of other high and low profile movies. Amongst the movies vying for attention this week are A Gentleman, featuring Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez; Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s much anticipated action thriller Babumoshai Bandookbaaz; Amole Gupte’s children adventure Sniff, a satirical comedy featuring the late Om Puri Mr. Kabaadi; director Deepak Anand’s romantic film The Rally, romantic film To Phir Aao Na and an English-language historical drama called Yadvi-The Dignified Princess and Yash Raj Films’s prison drama Qaidi Band.
Muskurahatein is set in a medical college, and focusses on an increasingly romantic relationship between a middle aged student and his young female student who is training under him in ultrasound technology, after completing her MBBS. The student, played by debutant Sonal Mudgal, has only recently married but finds herself increasingly attracted to her instructor, played by JS Randhawa. JS Randhawa, who also wrote and directed the movie, is a real life internationally-reknowned radiologist and apparently wrote the movie basing it on real life incidents that happened when he was training doctors. Both doctors are happy with their spouses, but the convenience of social media apps like WhatsApp and Facebook makes it increasingly easy for them to sneak around. The light comedy, however, ends with a message on how to preserve happy marriages under the onslaught of modern technology. The music, composed by Rajat Nagpal, is also great and adds the extra attraction to the light hearted plot.
Although the movie will be going up against some high budget films this weekend, the movie will be hoping to make a mark for itself with the audience with its fun plot and good music.
