‘Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari’ Is An Ode To Bombay

Even before the starting credits of Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari roll, you see a quote dedicated to the city of dreams Bombay. As soon as the movie begins, we hear about Bombay a city that never sleeps and yet is called the ‘city of dreams’. These are just a few instances where Bombay feels like another character in the movie. We are introduced to Suraj Singh Dhillon (Diljit Dosanjh) who is making a video with the help of his friend Sukhi (Manuj Sharma) to impress prospective brides. On the other hand, we see Detective Madhu Mangal Rane (Manoj Bajpayee) in a disguise trying to run a background check on one of the prospective grooms played by Abhishek Banerjee. After a girl rejects Suraj, Sukhi suggests that he should try acting like a ‘bad boy’ and Madhu manages to catch him in the act. The year is 1995, the city is Bombay and now it is war between Mangal and Suraj.

It is not just a war between Mangal and Suraj

The movie is not just about the battle of wits between Mangal and Suraj, there are also a variety of characters involved like Turshi Rane (Fatima Sana Shaikh), sister of Mangal who is the ideal bharatiya nari by day and a DJ by night. Suraj falls in love with her at first sight and even makes an effort to learn Marathi in his efforts to woo her. We also have the biryani-loving Kaka (Annu Kapoor), Mangal’s assistant who can see through all his plans and at many times is the only voice of reason in the movie. Your heart will also melt for Gurunam Singh Dhillon (Manoj Pahwa), Suraj’s father whose dairy and reputation are attacked for no fault of his own. Supriya Pilgaonkar as Mangal and Turshi’s mother has her own beauty parlour and is the only one who is supportive of her daughter’s dreams.

Manoj Bajpayee has a role worthy of his mettle

The performances of the supporting cast and the leads are flawless and yet, Manoj Bajpayee stands out from the very first scene. The way he changes his accent and his behaviour with each disguise leaves us awestruck. Even when he is playing Mangal, your eyes are only on him. We couldn’t have asked for a better treat this Diwali.

The era is captured perfectly

The movie is set in 1995, just before Bombay became Mumbai and  just like Scam 1992, the era is captured perfectly in the movie. Right from the cars to mopeds and even pagers all of these are surely to take you on a nostalgic trip. Even the songs like Ladki Dramebaaz Hai and Basanti are sure make your toes tap while you are in the theatres. Special mention to the writers Rohan Shankar, Shokhi Banerjee, and Abhishek Sharma. The movie has some of the wittiest dialogues we have heard in recent times.

WATCH OR NOT:

Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari is a light-hearted comedy with some excellent performances that can be enjoyed by the entire family. It is the perfect stress-buster you need this Diwali. Also, make sure to stay back during the credits, the blooper reel is sure to make you laugh out loud.
