Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana (2017)






From Cheeni Kum, to X-Men to any movie one might think of, when movies are on the table, I ought to be a part of it for the passion for movies has never been anything les ... Read more about Deepali

A pretty obvious fact about the premise of the film is that it caters to the marriage of the protagonists, Satyendra (Rajkummar Rao) and Arti Shukla (Kriti Kharbanda). Setting against the backdrop of the city of UP, it caters to the various orthodox norms of dowry other than the deplorable rules of not allowing females to study or work. It shows how the patriarchy overrules every logical sensibility and counteracts when you would exactly witness how a female herself bars another woman to work for according to them and I quote, “ Mishra khandaan ki bahuein kaam nhi karti.”

Besotted with Sattu, yet the fact that her abilities and talent to become an officer surrounds her into the situation of being between devil and the deep blue sea, she decides to elope from her marriage. And when it’s the case of a runaway bride, the stigma, disgrace and dishonor it carries for the family in the years to come drives the course of the rest of the movie when destiny makes them confront each other and the relation of a beautiful love story has the drastic transformation into that of arch rivals and burning revenge within.

While it ain’t very different, for more than half of the film, you’d feel it ain’t distinguishable from Badrinath ki dulhania wherein there is marriage but for the sake of work and employement and also the fact that the female protagonist is supremely abled, she is left with no option but to abandon her own marriage.

You’ll have ample reasons to say that the film is not out of the box or the idea isn’t as novel or distinctive, but the fact that it’ll keep you hooked onto the screen would make you interested enough to stay glued. Besides, there would be points when you’d want the protagonists to reunite. Now you may call it screenplay, direction or shear acting, you would literally see yourself feeling for the characters (atleast I did!).

The movie is pretty stretched for it has a few redundant scenes that could be called off, making it 2 hours 35 minutes long, yet you’d find yourself interested in watching whatever is shown. You wouldn’t slack for a moment and with this amount of drama, why would you ever lose interest?

It had scenes which somehow felt incomplete while cutting them abruptly, which I think the director should be accountable. But as far as the entire movie is concerned, it is quite absorbing.

I have witnessed the exponential growth of Rajkummar Rao from the time he began in citylights to now when he’s almost having 2-3 releases a year and honestly, he’s a perfect epitome of less looks and more talent and his acting speaks volumes about the reasons why directors feel the urge to cast him every other time.

It would definitely recommend this one and give it 3 out of 5 stars.
