It feels good to see a Bollywood film that showcases a couple, not just after marriage, but once they become parents. Featuring Kalki Koechlin and Sumeet Vyas, Ribbon is realistic to the core, with some important issues of our society, yet it refrains from being preachy.
As every other urban couple living in Mumbai Ribbon has its lead pair Karan Mehra (Sumeet Vyas) and Sahana Mehra (Kalki Koechlin). As every other pair, Karan & Sahana are in no hurry to have baby but as every other pair the girl undesirably gets pregnant. Sahana faces some issues because of her pregnancy as Karan stands by her at every point. But what's next for the urban couple now?
There's no doubt that the makers of the film have added various unwanted scenes, which do nothing but waste minutes. It is the kind of the film where you'll feel bored after a certain point. Crisp editing, a good background score and much better writing is what this film required.
The star performance of the movie was remarkable. Kalki Koechlin plays her role with utmost honesty. She slays in a few scenes but we all will agree, an actors performance is always affected by the script. Sumeet Vyas is not far behind, his performance is simply wonderful. Special mention, Kiara Majithia – little girl playing the role of Sumeet and Kalki spreads her cuteness in the second half.
This is Rakhee Sandilya’s debut movie as a director but unfortunately she has done pretty average job. She tries to mashup a lot of things in one story but ends up acing only one. There are only two songs in the movie, which have already failed to hype up. Background score is almost close to nil which at times makes you feel like you’re watching a video shot on your phone camera.
Director Rakhee Sandilya along with Rajeev Upadhyay, who has penned the script, we would give 4.5/10 to this one. Overall, the movie tries to portray something really bad happening around us.
