Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana: The invitation is an entertaining Bollywood package
RomComs based out a small town have a heart big enough to quench our thirst for good Bollywood entertainment.
Right from the likes of Bareilly Ki Barfi to Shub Mangal Savdhan and more, and now to this film, these films are not only enjoyable, but make a special place in our hearts.
They carry romantic undertones throughout and the comedy part sort of comes naturally to these wonderful films (of course they are made in a way to seem all real).

Ratnaa Sinha’s debut not only has all the ingredients of a Bollywood film, but it also gives out a handful of messages on its way.
While the script for sure goes a little cliché, the directors vision doesn’t. The presentation is fun, execution is engaging, and the treatment is thankfully nothing drooping towards women empowerment. The film doesn’t not scream for women rights, that’s so typical now, in films or reality. It just presents a fact that how social issues like dowry are followed as a tradition and not illegal, it tries to point out that there are not girls side or boys side that get affected, it’s the families.

The script on the other hand, goes a little typical in many parts, comes out alive and dives down again. But overall, the output isn’t that affected.

The storyline would suggest its inspiration from Badrinath Ki Dulhania, but it’s a better version only with less glamour and more believability.
The film follows a pace, never spend too much time on a situation, but does dwell time in drama. Well that’s a given in a Bollywood film. It also has some situations that seem befitting and as if happening in an actual family.
The best part about the film is that there is a tinge of romance in every other element the movie has, it never goes off track and makes us enjoy the small-town lingo. What’s good with these small-town languages is, even a normal dialogue of course when written and delivered perfectly, would be a line of amusement for the audiences.
And how can things not fall in place, when we have the expert Rajkumar Rao. Plus, a perfect supporting cast.
Rajkummar Rao as Satyendra aka Sattu is unbelievably perfect. He is irreplaceably best at doing such small town romcom roles as per his recent roles.
Kriti Kharbanda as Aarti Shukla is such a delightful surprise, effortless and natural.
The supporting cast deserves all the more praises than the leads. Vipin Sharma as the boy’s mamaji is very convincing and so is the boy’s mother. K. K. Raina as the boy’s father is nice in his role.
Manoj Pahwa as the girl’s mamaji has some good scenes and the actor does full justice to them.
Govind Namdev as the girl’s father is very impactful in his performance. Navni Parihar as the girl’s mother is nice too.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
Songs are decent and go okay with the movie flow.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
Accept the invitation and watch this fun wedding (well if it happens in the end).
