Released today, Second Hand Husband, marks the acting debut of Govinda’s daughter, Tina Ahuja and Punjabi actor Gippy Grewal. The movie which is directed by Sumeep Kang, also stars Dharmendra, Rati Agnihotri and Geeta Basra in pivotal roles. Let’s see how it is.

Story :

The story of the film revolves around the life of Rajbir (Gippy Grewal) who is deeply in love with his lawyer, Gurpreet (Tina Ahuja). The two are all set to get hitched but there is a twist in the tale. Rajbir’s ex-wife, Neha (Geeta Basra) gets Rajbir’s money as alimony every month and in order to avoid paying her, Gurpreet asks Rajbir to get Neha married to someone else.

This is when he meets Ajit (Dharmendra), a businessman who is caught cheating with his wife and is all set to get divorced now. Will Rajbir be able to convince Neha to marry Ajit? And how will all their lives suffer, forms the rest of the story…

Positive Points :

Due to lack of promotions and word of mouth publicity, not many people may have expected the flick to be a worthy watch. However to mine and everyone’s surprise, the movie managed to be a decent watch.

Speaking of performances, lets start with the legendary Dharmendra. The actor’s impeccable comic timing will leave you in splits. He is sure at his best. Gippy Garewal, who is known for his comedy stints in the North, was believable and convincing. Another actor who deserved an applause was Vijay Raaz. The actor can make even the most serious scenes funny. His expressions are amazing in every sense. Another high point of the film was cricketer Harbajan Singh’s cameo.

Negative points :

The only reason why the film was somewhat known to a few people, because it was been promoted as Govinda’s daughter Tina Ahuja’s debut film. However, her mention and presence was limited to the promos. The actress does not have much screen space. And for the time she appears on screen, all she does is overact.

Another actress Geeta Basra, looks bland and maintains a single expression throughout the film. The girls basically elevated the glamour quotient of the movie. The first half an hour of the film failed to make any sense what-so-ever. The characters could not be established and the sequences only confused the audiences.

Technical aspect:

Apart from a few performances, another good thing about the film was its music album. All the songs are placed rightly in the plot and suit situations. You may also keep humming them even after you leave he theatre. Sumeep’s direction was ok and you will just have leave all logic home to watch this flick. Most of the scenes do not make scene, which is fine if you looking for a stress buster that does not make you use your brains much. Editing of the film could have been better. Dialogues are fine, as a few one-liners sure make you laugh.

Verdict :

On the whole, Second Hand Husband can be watched if you are looking for some time pass this weekend, or else, if you are the intellect ones, this is just not your cup of it. Rating : 2/5
