Maybe there was so much hype created for this film so that it steals that attention away from Sanju‘s trailer or even film Raazi to show off it’s feminism factor and also so that this average film could work well at the box office. However, it was the audience and media which gave it a feministic approach when neither the film, nor it’s crew ever intended to.
Well, yes, I wouldn’t be lying when I put in front the fact that how lousy this film felt, overall. Even though, it presented itself all fancy, with good dialogue and a stellar star cast, it couldn’t be the créme de la créme. I wouldn’t blame the actors and the supporting cast, except Kareena Kapoor, for it but mainly who penned down the story, Mehul Suri and Nidhi Mehra.
The friendship, the bond between females and the fact that not only men are smutty and even women between themselves are, is superbly portrayed in this film. In fact, that’s what it boasted the most. How weddings in India are done, how rituals are overdone within Indian families & events and how everything is just about showbiz, is emphasized well to show the people who still believe in them. Also, to make them realize that it is JUST NOT NECESSARY.
Background score gets the highest marks in this film, even after it felt like some of it was taken from Judwaa (1997). Music, on the whole, too, is nice and catchy. I wasn’t surprised to see how a few of the dialogue or even visuals are added just to advertise the products and services of a few of the big companies. You do not have to make it SO obvious. Last but not the least, why I ruled out Kareena out of the good performance list is because she too [giving the plot some company] felt laid back, aside her usual, almost like someone forced her to do this film against her will.
If I have to rate in terms of comprehensive performances, Shikha Talsania would top my list, followed by Swara Bhaskar and then Sonam Kapoor along with all the supporting cast.
