Not for everyone
All the stories are based on a certain issues, which if one is aware of or has experienced would make it an enjoyable movie. Apart from Karan Johar one, others were difficult to comprehend as in what is happening, why are they behaving in that manner. I guess the runtime for each story was very small to establish anything in detail.
In order of liking,
1. Zoya Akhtar: It seems she has taken upon herself to show poor people stories after being accused of having made movies about the rich. She does a fantastic job and the potrayal, dialogues felt authentic. Bhumi Pednekar outshines everyone across all stories. She just has 2 dialogues and the entire story hinges on her. Exceptional performance in a completely deglamourised role. Speaking of the direction, I thoroughly enjoyed the match cuts and how the story was established.
2. Karan Johar, this one is the comedy and easy to understand, watch this for sure. I felt one could have made an entire movie on this, but this one is made for the one comedic climax it felt nevertheless the climax was funny.
3. Dibakar Banerjee, I didn't get this one, a conflicted middle-aged woman it seemed, but I was left with more questions, which is may be a good thing, I don't know.
4. Anurag Kashyap, a conflicted teacher figuring out about love. I kind of understood the message being wanting everything, but without any logic about if it is morally right or wrong. It is entirely about dilemma may be best suited for people who have gone through this patch. I got bored few minutes into this and was waiting for it get over.
