Hasee Toh Phasee is a great work best described as a dramedy masquerading as a romcom
There are many films that leave a mark on our lives. But Hasee Toh Phasee is a sweet little film that serves its purpose well. It will have a bittersweet aftertaste. Carved from the same thread as Rachel’s Getting Married, it is quite a rare film on the commercial space. Hasee Toh Phasee starred the spunky and vivacious Parineeti Chopra, who matched up to a well-written role. The arc of her character is well balanced and that speaks volumes about the dimension. The girl in question is reticent, different, genius and constantly battling her own demons. Her insecurity to find solace and peace among a cacophonous wedding ceremony is in place. The film delves deeper and that later transpires into a penultimate scene of self-confrontation. The shuttle nuances of the character match the overtly loud family wedding background. Sid is the perfect foil for Pari’s character who holds up that much-needed teacup. He makes her see the world a little more rationally and approves of her weird ways. In the end, they seal the deal with a soft tender kiss.
