'Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan' Review: Love is love!

A Potpourri of Vestiges Review

By Shubhangi Jain

Love is love after all. The decision to choose our loved one is liberated from cast, statement of faith, color, age and sexual orientation. This is the focal thought behind the Ayushmann Khurrana and Jitendra Kumar-starrer Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. Ayushmann is back with another film dependent on a social issue after his movie Shubh Mangal Saavdhan with Bhumi Pednekar. It’s a great leap for the Hindi cinema to portray two men as homosexuals on big screen and showcase the daily challenges which they face in our society.

The first scene of this rom-com figures out how to press a wide grin out of you, such is the dim appeal of a flashy Kartik and his uneasy, yet friendly, sweetheart Aman. The couple is seen pursuing a train to Allahabad, where they are set out toward a daunting struggle with the last's family and the general public's ordinary attitude when all is said in done.

Hitesh Kewalya's 'Shubh Mangal Zyada Savdhaan' is no straight-talker, rather, it sets aside some effort to develop and elevate the show. What's more, in this manner, frenzy results following a hot make-out session turn out badly. Suitably, the setting is Allahabad but the movie takes us to Delhi where Aman and Kartik are in a happy living relationship. But somehow in the latter scenes Aman’s father (Shankar Tripathi) finds out about Aman and Kartik’s relationship and to free the obligation he has to marry plainly shy Kusum, who is one more character sewed into the story.

The disposition and tone is basically sarcastic and tiny, bound with drama that works now and again yet feels excessively unrealistic on a few events. In a bid to dramatize things relating to the unthinkable around same-sex connections, the film neglects to tap into the components select to little urban communities like Allahabad, and limits the plotline to one ordinary family.

In any case, Ayushmann Khuranna's portrayal of the smooth-talking (with a reckless demeanor) Kartik is a joy to watch on screen and he more than compensates for the weaknesses. His brazen capacity to adore consistently develops on you, and his on-screen trademark quality of being funny at odd, clumsy minutes is the thing that makes him an ideal choice for this job. Furthermore, strolling side by side with the offbeat Kartik, is Jitendra Kumar's shy and meek Aman: if Ayushmann highjacks the film with his irresistible vitality, a smooth Jitendra offsets it out with his poker-confronted humor and the relatability factor that he keeps up all through the film. Apart from that Kartik's funky nose ring, bright pink scarf at the family wedding, the rainbow cape he wears while expressing that Shankar Tripathi is experiencing Homophobia, etc. succeed in capturing the audiences’ attention.

Maanvi Gagroo (Goggle) is also seen in the movie frantically hanging tight for society's blessing as a masterminded marriage; she is a show-stealer in her own ability. Her parents are shown as typical Indian parents who are extremely desperate about their daughter’s marriage so they find an aged man who would marry their daughter.

Apart from that Gajraj Rao, as the ruling patriarch and a bombed researcher, is both genuine in his methodology when required, and clever, when the circumstance requests him to be. In like manner, Neena Gupta, as the completely contributed mother conveys probably the best climaxes.

The film doesn't just concentrate on homosexuality and homophobia but it daintily addresses different issues also. Pankaj and his significant other are in a cold marriage as both admit to living in parts'. While Pankaj needed to relinquish Rani, Sunaina needed to leave Kumar and both miss their separate exes. Their marriage wasn't a result of adoration; however of family pressure. The film makes us chuckle our hearts out while featuring such a delicate issue, yet it came up short on the power that was required in specific minutes.

The scenes and dialogues in Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan are hilarious and astutely composed. From “Ladkiyon ki na mein haan ho sakti hai to ladko ki bhi to ho sakti hai” to “Tu oh mera strong baby hai” to “Tere papa toh educated hai voh samajh jaayenge” the punchlines have been thrown at the accurate time in the movie. The first half of the movie will entertain you fully and you won’t miss any dialogue while the second half of the movie gets a bit carried away and somewhere fails to engage the audience in the same manner.

Indeed, the story has social pertinence; it is a story that should be toldregardless of whether served as a parody or not. Will people accept gay love after the movie? Maybe or maybe not! Whether the movie breaks the stereotype or not? Well, after watching the movie people would definitely understand that homosexuality is not a disease.

Rating: 8/10
