MUMBAI— An elderly man (Raza Murad) who wants to fall in love once before dying, bribes his nephew (Rohan Khurana) to make his profile on the dating site Tinder. He soon finds a match in the bold and winsome lady (Mona Matthews) who eggs him on with suggestive expressions and words. When things seem to be going satisfactorily, there is a change: she gets a job abroad, where she will get to stay with her grown-up daughter. Selflessly, uncle wishes her the best, and they promise to keep in touch. But does that happen? How does their relationship progress?

A sweet and poignant comedy, the film shows Raza Murad in a new light as a 60-year-old looking for love. However, many of us may not really digest the actor in such a cute role, and he too seems a tad uncomfortable at times. Mona Matthews is charming, and Rohan Khurana, a lively nephew who turns his uncle’s teacher of sorts. Rawtaani’s script and direction are efficient and to the point.

This one is worth a watch for its sheer simplicity and sweetness.

Rating: 3/5
