Marriages are made in heaven but to make it look like one on earth is the job of the wedding planner. YRF is back with the tadka of masti and fun with this new venture of shaadi-making business packaged with the taste of fun, glee and love. A film that highlights behind-the-shaadi-scenes and endeavors to convince the fact that behind every successful shaadi there is a wedding planner and this theme was projected with band, baaja and baaraat.
What spark can one expect when a no-nonsense girl comes across a blithe spoilt brat? Well, as the law says ‘opposites attract’. Introducing Shruti Kakkad (Anushka Sharma), a girl with well set ambitions and a career-oriented final year student studying at Delhi University with another final year student of Delhi University, Bittoo Sharma (Ranveer Singh), a wastrel, unfocussed who enjoys life with his pals to the fullest. An uncommon and ill-timed meeting leads them to an uproarious and joyful voyage, as they embark on the nuptials planning business jointly. However they follow clear set of laws amongst them is the one which states “Jisse vyapaar karo, usse kabhi na pyaar karo” (Don’t mix business with pleasure). This leads to their revelation to the gaudiness and glamour of Delhi nuptials, only to trial out their amity in due point in time.
The first half of the film wherein the duo embark on to set up their business seems to be entertaining and full of fun but the second half follows a chain of events wherein they face ups and downs in their relationship directly affecting their business. In this process an item number of the duo in a wedding instead of Shah Rukh Khan’s dance number which was not possible due to his leg injury wasn’t as appealing as expected. The love story between the couple (Shruti and Bittoo) is well blended to balance the storyline of the movie, thus making it not worse but better entertaining for the audience.
Although the film had an average content, it took off really well with debutant Ranveer Singh whose fine acting skills made every clichéd gags sound and appear side-splitting. Supporting this debutant was Anushka Sharma who after delivering hits like Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Badmaash Company has convincingly presented the character on the silver screen.
The fine directorial skills of the debutant director Maneesh Sharma and good cinematography and screenplay made the entire movie appear credible towards the spectators while the music score given by Salim-Sulaiman was at its best.
A fultoo timepass movie promising neither the best nor the worst but is better in terms of every element required to make a movie appear credible towards the audience but an improvement in storyline could have made the film appear excellent.
A family entertainer packaged with fun, masti and dhamaal.
