The movie features a talented cast of Konkona Sen Sharma, Ranvir Shorey, and Koel Purie and is directed by Rajat Kapoor. The movie is set against the backdrop of badminton and revolves around the lives of two couples who are having trouble in their respective marriages. Arjun (Ranvir Shorey) and Malti (Koel Purie) are a young couple who are struggling with infertility, and their constant pressures to conceive are taking a toll on their relationship. Meanwhile, Rahul (Ranvir Shorey) and Meenakshi (Konkona Sen Sharma) are a married couple who have drifted apart due to their busy schedules and lack of intimacy.

The plot takes an interesting twist when they all come together to participate in the local badminton tournament. The movie beautifully portrays how the game of badminton brings them closer and helps them rediscover their love for each other.

The movie highlights the reality and complexity of modern-day relationships, and how sometimes, a little push can go a long way in rekindling the love that couples share.

Mixed Doubles also features an impressive soundtrack, with songs that fit perfectly with the tone of the movie. The music is composed by Sagar Desai, and the lyrics are by Ankur Tewari. The songs are catchy and have a feel-good vibe that adds a delightful touch to the movie.

The cinematography by Rafey Mehmood is refreshing and does justice to the story.
