Shubh Mangal Saavdhan Review: A Fun-Filled Movie

Looks like the movie has got many kinds of stuff which are both fresh and refreshing. The first stuff that connects to the viewers is the crafty portrayal of middle-class people in Delhi, which is both genuine and undeniably true. Flats with paper thin walls and siblings unable to handle and suppress their egos are few of the aforementioned statement’s example. The characters using words like ‘loyaltiness’ is another factor which supports the ambiance in which the movie is made. The flick directed by RS Prasanna is the remake of his Tamil Film but cleverly he has molded the story into a location of Delhi that it deserves applause.

The bride-to-be played by Bhumi Pednekar and his fiancé ‘Mudit’ played by Ayushmann Khurrana at one passionate evening encounters a problem which Mudit refers to as ‘men’s problem'(erectile dysfunction). Just days away from their marriage, this fact spreads to the entire extended family and the couple struggle hard to make things work. This is where the fun, pun and seriousness of the flick comes alive in an amazing manner.

Seema Pahwa seems in a great form after her excellent performance in ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’. In a scene where she talks to her daughter telling her about a woman’s body as ‘gufa which opens only for Ali Baba at suhaagraat’ evokes myriad laughs. The makers have given enough space to ‘Sugandha’ (played by Bhoomi Penekar) and Mudit to show the warmth and adjustment they make while going through various stages of a relationship to marriage.

The only shortcoming in the movie is the bizarre ending but the overall movie is the one for which cinephiles should make time!
