Jhootha Hi Sahi is all about cool bonding of buddies, witty wisecracks and wry humour with an air of love between perfectly ordinary folks.
A geeky bookstore employee Siddharth (John Abraham) in London doubles up to work as a suicide helpline counsellor in the night. Everything is smooth until he gets a call from Mishka (Pakhi) who is desperate to die. Siddharth gives long talks to Mishka. Then fate brings them together and she does not know that the stammering bookstore geek is actually the smart phone counsellor. Will there be love
beytween them? Why does Siddharth hide under lies? The rest of the story deals with what happens to their relationship.
John Abraham attempting something new and different from his macho roles performs with conviction. Pakhi essays her role with ease. Raghu Ram as the Pakistani does well. All others are OK with their roles.
Abbas Tyrewala comes out with another contemporary film and dwells on the wit of dialogues to show the evolution of bonding. The screenplay is rambling and somehow loses the grip. AR Rahman’s music is catchy. Cinematography is
vibrant. Production values are high.
Jhootha Hi Sahi is strictly for the multiplex audience and addicted cinema buffs.
