Shubh Mangal Savdhan, comedy and content of new-age enlightened Bollywood
On the menu for this wedding is a list of superb performances, cultivated writing and crisp pace.
We aren’t sure how genres are sorted out in films, not a sex comedy for sure, not an out and out romantic comedy either.
Films like these may start a new wave of genres that says out loud, new-age-class-apart comedies.

Read Detail Review
Remaking his own Tamil movie Kalyana Samayal Saadham, the director R.S. Prasanna brings a film for us that fits the Vicky Donor zone. A zone that’s new-age, a zone that grows beyond taboos but at the same time doesn’t get tasteless and indelicate.
That’s the very reason you can watch this film with your family too.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
Love cum Arrange cum Love marriage that’s how it goes for Mudit and Sugandha. Everything is fine until Mudit realizes that he suffers from ‘gent’s problem’.
A problem that you will enjoy. And a film that puts a smile on your face all through its running time. It crisp, well edited, clean and refreshing. If you want to see what dignified treatment can do to a film’s otherwise awkward subject (for many), watch this movie. A very challenging subject dealt in the most sensitive and fun way.
This sit-com-slice-of-slice film instantly strikes a chord, no time wastage in establishing the plot or characters, within minutes communication and connect gets created. The love story is not only cute, but is a parallelly equal (or even more) tale. The film is an out and out enjoyable 3-course meal, characters as the appetizers, content as the main course, but the climax as the dessert was expected to be as rational as the complete film. Nonetheless, the whole humor ride covered its last-minute flaws.
Cultivated treatment is the king in the movie and dialogues are the queen of entertainment. But it’s the performances that occupy the throne. Not only the chemistry between the leads is superb, the supporting cast are the literal pillars of strength.
Ayushmann Khurrana is tremendously wow, an actor who not only puts all his energy to a role, but rather starts living that role. Bhumi Pednekar, she is natural and performs effortlessly, what she adds to her role is rare, realism and connect.
Brijendra Kala as Tauji and Seema Pahwa as Bhumi’s mother, carry the film’s fun responsibility (majorly). Brijendra Kala can be silent and make a scene funny with just his expressions, Seems Pahwa was simply rocking in her role. She gave us the new adorable mother we’d look for in films now.
Neeraj Sood and Supriya Shukla as Ayushmann’s parents were super convincing. Gopal Dutt as the doctor is nice in his short role.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
Here comes one of the best parts about the movie, songs are background score here and that is just what the movie should have had.
