Actors: Rishi Kapoor, Ayushmann Khurrana, Sonam Kapoor
Rating: 2.5 / 5
My expectations were less after the unconvincing initial cut of the movie but it didn’t disappoint. A beautiful comedy touch has been given to a good pickup story from a normal life where a couple persuades their family for love marriage. It had a very nice start and keeps you attached almost throughout the journey. A good light hearted comedy where nothing is that great but everything is acceptable and satisfactory. I’ll give thumbs up to the dialogue writer as it suited perfectly with the whole script and was exactly according to what was expected for this type of story. The best part of the movie is its length. There’s almost no drag, no silly surprises and the movie keeps it pace correctly. Although first half is comparatively better where the second half has some slow moments, but overall it brings a smile to your face at the end.
The reason I’ve started with Rishi Kapoor’s name in the Actors list above should be clear. He stole the show from the so-called lead actors. I already had expectations from him because one of the major factors, which made me little excited to see this movie was Rishi Kapoor. Once again he rose to the expectations and delivered a fantastic performance. Be it dialogues, screen presence and whatever it is, he was charming. Ayushmann was also very good and proved his worth again. Of course, not a big star performance, but a required enamor that he delivers every time. Sonam continues to be a usual dumb actor but thankfully nowhere she spoils the show and brings forth a decent one.
Nupur Asthana worked on yet another light hearted comedy after Mujhse Fraaandship karoge and doesn’t disappoint at all. It’s again a modest attempt that is least expected from a director always. Hitesh Sonik’s music is not used much but mostly goes well with the movie.
Overall a good comedy that is enjoyable and yet forgettable.
