Toh Baat Pakki: Desi Khichdi, No Tadka

The die hard Indian soap fans will probably connect with ‘Toh Baat Pakki‘ the best. A  typical drama/comedy where housewives make it their duty to interfere in other people’s lives due to lack of anything better to do, it won’t find a huge audience.

Tabu, the most prominent cast member throughout, plays Rajeshwari – a money minded middle class housewife, hell-bent on finding a suitor for her younger sister Nisha (Yuvika Chaudhry), when he walks right into her house as engineering student, Rahul (Sharman Joshi). She goes the extra mile in trying to convince him to marry Nisha. Nisha comes down from the village, candyfloss moments elaborate the process of falling in love and baat paaki. Everyone is happy and marriage preparations begin in full swing.

Alas! Along comes family friend Yuvraj (Vatsal Seth), Junior Manager in Godrej with his own car, soon to acquire a bangla, looking for temporary accommodation. The dollar signs flash in Rajeshwari’s eyes who subtly throws poor Rahul out.

Time for groom 2, plan B. Nisha comes again and is introduced to Mamma’s boy Yuvi along with his beloved Mummyji. Before  she knows it, yeh bhi baat pakki, but not before another wannabe love song. Hurt and feeling betrayed Nisha tracks Rahul down, who is unaware of the broken engagement. He confronts Rajeshwari who flippantly and shamelessly dodges him. By this point her insensitivity and audacity have you infuriated thanks to Tabu’s performance.

It’s now time for Rahul to hatch his plan, aided by over-the-top characters like the nosy next door neighbor, a dehati Mama and small time mawalis.

Between creating false impressions, plans of kidnapping and the wedding arrangements no one even bothers about what the bride wants. The movie ends with a climax which is a mixture of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai  and Hum Apke Hain Kaun, both done to death and in a better manner in other movies.

Yuvika Chaudhry does not make an impression. While Sharman can’t really be criticized. He should probably stick to ensemble casts. The jokes are not funny and the humor is neither slapstick nor witty! Sharman Joshi gets the line ‘bahut sochte ho tum‘ a lot, they should have probably put a bit more thought into the movie.
