Mixed Doubles

Genre: Black Humor

Director: Rajat Kapoor

This is story of a middle class couple (Ranvir and Konkona) who love each other even after ten years of togetherness, but the spark in their married life is gone. Ranvir’s colleague Vinay Pathak is a flirt and keeps on boasting about it. Character played by Vinay symbolizes the typical male in our male dominated society. Vinay Pathak’s performance in the cafeteria is remarkable, when he has found out his wife is also cheating on him and this he is not able to accept.

Time for kahani-mein-twist now: Ranvir’s NRI friend tells him about swinging (spouse swapping) which leaves him startled. He just can’t resist the temptation and want to give it a try. He tries to convince Konkana but she contends. But Ranvir wont give up and he tricks her into this somehow. Ranvir plans to swing along with Rajat Kapoor & Koel Puri. Their short appearaance in the movie is also enough to make an impact. Ranvir has to return disappointed as he doesn't get what he wanted and this ignites his male ego, which is perfectly depicted by the conversation between Ranvir and Konkona in the car on the way back home.

All this is portrayed very beautifully with sprinkles of laughter through out. Whole movie continues seamlessly on a light note. Anurag Kashyap has done a good job at dialogues. Simplicity is statement movie seems to make and yet it touches many chords.

I feel the movie is worth a watch.

So...what were your thoughts?
Would you try to keep romance and passion alive , or is 'swinging' inevitable in the present world?

I choose option (A).... anytime. I don't know whether 'swinging' is inevitable in the world or not. But I believe we have something within, which won't allow it to prevail. Name it as Love or name it as Trust it doesn't matter.

But 'swinging' doesn't have to be cheating right,it can be done with full consent..
