Verdict: A funny take on brothers who ‘un’celebrate their bachelorhood.
Bhajjo Veero Ve, one of the most awaited films of 2018, has arrived a day later than the release date. Director and lead actor Amberdeep Singh is known for making films that are rich in content and high on entertainment, with this one being no different. The trailer of Bhajjo Veero Ve caught immediate attention and the songs helped the movie in generating much hype and hoopla. Does the film live up to the expectations? Let’s analyze.
What’s Bhajjo Veero Ve About:
For a group of bachelors in rural Punjab, finding a suitable life partner seems to be an almost impossible task. When Amberdeep’s character meets the girl of his dreams (Simi), he is turned down by her relatives, who are not too keen to marry her off to a guy with no family of his own. It is now up to him to find his long-lost kins and more importantly, win everybody’s approval to marry his sweetheart.
Bhajjo Veero Ve has its heart in the right place. The bonding between the four unmarried brothers, their dejection by society, and their subsequent desire to get married makes you feel for them. The first hour of the movie is high on comedy and light moments. The writer wastes no time and comes straight to the point by showcasing the plight of each unmarried brother. The dialogues, although in abundance about being bachelors, do not get monotonous and each instance brings a smile to your face. The love story of Amberdeep and Simi moves as a parallel track, which connects right before the interval. The highly entertaining first half of the movie is laden with a number of ‘laugh out loud’ moments for the viewer’s enjoyment.
The second hour is nostalgic as Amberdeep takes us back to the films from the 1980s. Guggu Gill, riding a horse with a gun in his hand, makes a dash on the screen in style. The story about brothers slowly turns into a story of ‘mama-bhanja’. While there is a dip in the pace here, the story picks up at the climax.
Amberdeep Singh is a one-man army who has acted, written, directed Bhajjo Veero Ve. He deserves laurels for bringing forth the background of men who remain bachelors in their 30s and 40s. Simi Chahal is perfect in a brief role. Hardeep Gill is the star performer who brings the house down with his one-liners. Guggu Gill is first rate.
What Could’ve Been Better:
The second half is not at par with the first one. The story takes a backseat and the makers tend to push too many funny sequences into the second hour of the film.
Why You Should Watch:
Bhajjo Veero Ve is entertaining and a well-made film. The funny dialogues between the brothers and the tussle between Amberdeep and Guggu Gill keep the viewers’ interest alive throughout the film. Watch it for Amberdeep’s fine act and one of Hardeep Gill’s best performance till date.
