Jhootha Hi Sahi is a film diected by famous director Abbas tyrewala. The director comes up with yet another refreshing romcom in form of Jhootha Hi Sahi after his previous release Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. It's a nicely written film, with good performances & inspiring music and director Abbas's fresh treatment makes it an exciting watch.
The film unfolds the story of Siddharth (John Abraham) who runs an Indian bookshop named 'Kagaz Ke Phool' with his Pakistani friend Omar (Raghu Ram) in London. Kutika (Manasi Scott) is his girlfriend who never leaves a chance to dominate him. One night, Sid starts getting calls from unknown people who are attempting to commit suicide. He later comes to know that his number was mistakenly printed on fliers of an Indian emergency suicide helpline. Now, it's upon him to answer and help callers who want to end their lives.
One such caller is Mishka (Pakhi), who after a while becomes Sid's close phone friend. Sid knows her name, but Mishka doesn't. He meets her when she visits his book store. But Mishka doesn't know that Sid is actually her phone friend. So, Mishka starts dating Sid in the day and shares her experiences with him in the night on the phone. Sid influences Mishka to fall for him with the information she shares during the night talks. Does this continue forever or Mishka eventually finds out about his lies is what follows.
Acting wise, John Abrahm is excellent in his role. Pakhi delievers a good performance. Raghu Ram enacts his role with simplicity. Rest of the starcast including Anaitha Nair, Alishka Varde, Prahsant Chawla and George Young are admirable in their small roles. Voice cameos by Imran Khan, Abhishek Bachchan and Riteish Deshmukh are passable. R Madhavan does not impress so must but just okay.
On the whole, Jhootha Hi Sahi is a nice film.
