Take a look at the post:

Jab Khuli Kitaab features an older couple heading for a divorce after 50 years of marriage. “The film deals with the dysfunctionality of relationships and its impact on family, with dollops of humour and heart. The high energy repartee, and the multi-generational family dynamics at the forefront also makes this the rare Hindi comedy that is both universal and intimate,” a note from the makers read.

Speaking about the film, director Saurabh Shukla said that Jab Khuli Kitaab is close to his heart and he is thrilled to have Pankaj Kapur and Dimple Kapadia as his main leads. “We all say that one should be transparent and clean in any relationship but how many of us are open to face the truth in our own relationships? The film is a romcom with a couple in their 70s. You see them doing what any teenager will do in their relationships. The film is a joyride where you laugh, fall in love and cry with this unique couple,” said the director.

Actors Aparshakti Khurana, Samir Soni and Nauheed Cyrusi also feature in the film. Set in Uttarakhand, the film recently wrapped its start-to-finish schedule in Ranikhet.
