She is not size zero. He doesn’t have a six pack. But Boman Irani–Farah Khan definitely make for an adorable filmi jodi in their new film ‘Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi’.
Directed by veteran editor Bela Bhansali Sehgal, the film is your usual filmy love story, which is predictable from the very beginning. But what sets it apart from the rest of the stories is the film’s lead pair and some light-hearted moments which have been beautifully captured.
The film marks the acting debut of Farah Khan, who takes on the role of Shirin effortlessly. In fact, Shirin seems to be an extension of what Farah is – so in most scenes the director-choreographer and now actress doesn’t really have to ‘act’. As the blunt, effervescent Parsi ‘girl’, Farah shines as Shirin, making her acting debut seem quite effortless.
The film clearly belongs to Boman Irani though. Boman plays the shy, honest, somewhat silly Farhad beautifully and makes you smile at the way he goes out wooing Farha. Boman brilliantly adopts particular mannerisms of a nervous shy man who is very conscious of his single status.
The movie has been released in Pakistan by IMGC global while the PR is handled by Encyclomedia PR.
