Two Hindi movies - 'Jodi Breakers' and 'Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya' - released on Friday 24th February 2012. The theme of both is love. The story of 'Jodi Breakers' is about a glamorous pair who begin as marriage breakers, but end up in their own wedlock! Sid played by R. Mahavan and Sonali played by sexy Bipasha Basu call themselves jodi breakers because they help a lot of squabbling couples get divorce. Sid has had a break up with his wife and pays alimony. Suffering from it, he pleads and counsels his clients to remove inconvenient partners and get single to mingle and enjoy life. His distinction from other divorce lawyers is that he seduces only the unfaithful clients! Sid earns a lot and enjoys a fabulous life by wining, dining and mingling with bikini-clad babes. And his job of a divorce expert only gets better after hooking up with Sonali. They mint money from a roaring practice. Against the backdrop of all the glamour and fa├žade of fun, Sid is a mess. He is tired of paying a huge alimony to his ex-wife.

One day, Sid's wife offers him a deal - at any cost - to drive a wedge between a happy couple, played by Milind Soman and Dipannita Sharma. Sid falls for it, but it lands him in a bigger mess. Through this case, Sid learns that love is supreme and it dawns upon him that even he can't live without it. He finally falls in love with none other than his Jodi breaker partner - Bipasha - and wants to marry her.

Well, inasmuch as the film has its moments, the script falls far short of a good one. The saving grace is the hat ke (different) subject that might arouse the curiosity of some, especially the youth. The cast otherwise fits the movie and the roles. R. Madavan is a successful entertainer and performs well but not as brilliantly as in 'Tanu Weds Manu'. Bipasha Basu is more than perfect. She is stunningly beautiful and must be complimented for her dance number. Some critics object to her name linked with the song - Bipasha Bipasha. Milind Soman and Dipannita Sharma too act exceedingly well. Helen reminds us of her glorious past. Omi Vaidya as Nano (Yes, named after small Tata Car) is good as usual. Salim Sulaiman's music is fantastic; especially the "Kunwara" track though "Bipasha Bipasha" isn't far behind. Cinematography is brilliant, especially of locations in Greece. Performance, music and photography indeed lend huge support to director Ashwini Chaudhary of the 'Good Boy Bad Boy' fame.

Overall, music and stars make the movie is a fun entertainer.
