Gehraiyaan is a movie that primarily centres around two couples, Alisha (Deepika Padukone) and Karan (Dhairya Karwa), and Tia (Ananya Panday) and Zain (Siddhant Chaturvedi). Alisha is a yoga instructor in Mumbai and is developing a yoga-based app that requires funding. She has a strained relationship with her father, Vinod, and has not yet come out of the trauma of losing her mother, who died by suicide. Alisha has been in a relationship with Karan, an advertising professional who quit his job to write his novel, for six years. However, their relationship develops cracks due to a lack of communication. Alisha's cousin, Tia, invites them to her beach house in Alibaug to meet her boyfriend, Zain, who is a self-made man in the realty business. The foursome meets and Alisha and Zain get attracted to each other without their partners' knowledge. After having a good time in Alibaug, they return to Mumbai. Zain and Alisha keep in touch secretly, and Zain raises funds for Alisha's app. Karan relocates to Alibaug to finish his novel, and Tia leaves for the USA to settle family legal issues, providing an opportunity for Alisha and Zain to start an affair. Zain and Alisha connect over their difficult past experiences and engage in a hidden romantic relationship. Alisha breaks up with Karan after realising he had not been earning and hiding the fact that a publishing house declined his novel. Zain promises to end his affair with Tia but has to wait for six months. At a party celebrating Zain and Tia's third anniversary, Zain is informed by his business associate that they are going to be in a big financial mess. Alisha informs Zain that she is pregnant with his child, leading to the rest of the film's events, which are filled with drama and emotions.

Pinkvilla’s Review

Shakun Batra's Gehraiyaan is a well-crafted film that manages to keep the audience engaged for its entire runtime of over two and a half hours. Batra's screenplay flows organically, deftly weaving in the characters' backstories and their present-day affairs. While the first half of the film is carried by the lightness of the sea breeze, the second half takes a darker turn both romantically and professionally. The film's leads, Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi carry the weight of this turn with authenticity and grace. Batra deftly explores themes of lies, cheating, mistrust, and grief, which are portrayed convincingly by the supporting cast, especially Ananya Panday and Dhairya Karwa. Overall, Gehraiyaan is an intimate exploration of the choices people make in their past, their relationships, and why we do what we do. Shakun Batra has created a film that strikes a balance between intimacy, shock, grief, and love, making it a worthwhile watch for anyone looking for a deep dive into the complexities of human relationships.
