Honeymoon Travels is an off-beat drama weaving together the stories of 6 couples on their honeymoons on the same tourist bus. There are old-timers Nahid & Oscar on their second marriages, reflective and forgiving of live. Then there's the Gujrati couple Hitesh and Shilpa who can't get anywhere near each other without scrabbling, the super-compatible Parsi couple Aspi and Zara, and the oddball NRI husband Bunty with his desi, fun-loving wife Madhu. An uptight and insecure Bengali man, Partho, is very much in love with his beautiful, free-spirited wife Milly. And rounding off the sextet are the Kapoors, the Punjabi couple comprising of talkative Pinky and contemplative Vicky. The film starts off with the start of the bus journey, and a couple of red herrings, like Shilpa crying her eyes out at going on the honeymoon. Then there's an opinionated bus driver, and a mysterious motor-bike rider following the bus. And while everything looks lovey-dovey in the beginning, with familiarity and ...Written by
Amodini's Movie Reviews (http://hindimoviereviews.blogspot.com)
I was very excited about watching Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd. until the reviews came out and made it sound like another mediocre Bollywood movie. Well, let me tell you my friends, the movie is anything but mediocre! In fact its one of most endearing movies I have seen in a while. All through the film I had a big smile on my face with many laugh-out-loud moments. Which may have been caused by Boman Irani's accent and twinkle in his eye, Kay Kay's (award winning) Bengali prudeness followed by the 'Sajnaji Vari Vari' jig or the oh-so-perfectly-synchronized couple with the big secret etc. The movie has its dramatic moments also that are compelling - no melodrama and no under-playing either, resulting in just the right impact.
Every story holds your interest (admittedly some more than others) and the characters are as flesh and blood as they can get. The casting is perfect resulting in believable performances. I watched the movie a second time and noticed the little things that I had missed the first time, which lead the viewer to the surprise elements. Reema Kagti's attention to detail made my respect for her direction, one notch higher. Not to forget the thumbprint of the hugely talented Farhan Akhtar.
'Honeymoon Travels' is not flawless but the flaws are few and far between and can be forgiven. Its a movie that made me believe that you don't have to have big budgets, big stars, gloss and pretentious movie makers to entertain. The most important thing is that the movie should have a soul. Great job team of Honeymoon Travels! We want more!!
