Shaadi mein zaroor aana is just 'blah'
Poor script and dialogues make this shaadi very boring. Ignore the invite if you get one!
Cast: Rajkummar Rao, Kriti Kharbanda
Rajkummar Rao has been loved for delivering characters with excellence, and his performance in Newton also got him applause and an entry to Oscars. But the eminent actor has definitely made a wrong choice with this movie, which invites the audience, so as to enjoy their shaadi. Starring Kriti Kharbanda and Rajkummar Rao, Bollywood release of the week, Shaadi mein zaroor aana is boring, bland and blah!
Set in the backdrop of Kanpur, Satyendra Mishra (Rajkummar Rao) works as a clerk in one of the government offices. His family is keen on getting him married, and somehow come across Aarti Shukla’s (Kriti Kharbanda) photo. Both the youngsters meet and in no time fall in love. Families meet for the negotiation (literally), where the father of the bride is put to a shame. The groom is almost sold based on his government position, job, and family status, whereas the girl comes at a condition. But something eventually changes the situation and the bride runs away. Ego takes birth and there begins the revenge. What happened to the well-planned wedding? Why did she run away? The answers to these question make the rest of the movie, literally the second half of the film.
Absolutely nothing in the film makes it worth watching. The script, dialogues, the narration is old, cliché, and boring; so much so that even the ace actor Rajkummar Rao cannot save the film. The storyline sadly seems like that of a daily soap, where the conclusion is quite as expected and the twists are absolutely unnecessary. Kriti Kharbanda looks beautiful, but just that cannot help her in the film.
To be honest, there is nothing more to write about Shaadi mein zaroor aana, because the 2+ hour experience only will make you sleep, cringe or bring you out of the theatre before the climax.
