Star Cast: Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Swara Bhasker, Shikha Talsania, Sumeet Vyas, Manoj Pahwa.
Director: Shashanka Ghosh.
What’s Good: It’s a good looking film – all the glitters and glamour, ladies look hot, few genuinely funny scenes.
What’s Bad: The script is too confusing, forced feminism and adult humour, some issues shown are hyperbolic-ally displayed.
Loo Break: No, the girls will make you stick to your seat.
Watch or Not?: The film will surely make a certain section of audience uncomfortable but it’ll cater the remaining of them. It’s entertaining in parts & falls under the one-time-watch category.
Kalindi Puri (Kareena Kapoor Khan), Avni Sharma (Sonam Kapoor Ahuja), Sakshi Soni (Swara Bhasker) and Meera Sood (Shikha Talsania) are these four together-since-college kind of buddies. They call themselves Veeres (Brothers) and share this immortal bond with each other. 10 years fast-forwarding from their school friendship, we see all four busy with their own lives in different parts of the world. They’re faraway but are as much together as they were before.
The siyaapa starts when Rishabh (Sumeet Vyas) proposes Kalindi for marriage and she confusedly says yes. Inviting her veeres to the wedding Kalindi discovers how this is not what she wants. Rest of the story revolves around each of their lives and how they tackle the societal perceptions breaking the stereotypes.
Veere Di Wedding Review: Script Analysis
Nidhi Mehra and Mehul Suri have penned this story which deals with some genuine problems. The only problem with those problems is, they’re very unrelatable to many out there. There are four parralel tracks running in the film and everything gets tangled to each other after a point of time. “Bahar se sati aur andar se slutty, John ka John, discussions on orgasm, Apna haath jagganath” – the film is divided between good things and a dragging plot.
Humour is there but in parts, whereas a movie such as this had an infinite scope of adding hilarious moments. It will cater to a very limited amount of audience as it has its fair share of bold moments. But something major from the film was missing! It tried to be too shiny blinding everyone’s eyes for few moments. You can like the film for a while but that’s it, it’ll not remain in the shelf of your heart for a long time. Also, from Uber to Bikaji, the movie is filled with advertising various brands.
Veere Di Wedding Review: Star Performance
Kareena Kapoor Khan is undoubtedly the HOTTEST of them all. She’s glowing throughout her performance and is at ease in both the phases. Because of her pregnancy she took a break and resumed back post Taimur. She has maintained the grace and sexiness with utmost elegance.
Sonam Kapoor has her moments but they’re very few. She gets the traits of her character very well. Swara Bhasker shines from them all! My money was on either Swara or Shikha after watching the trailer & Swara rules the pack. She has looked hot and delivered her lines and emotions perfectly.
Shikha Talsania ups her game & delivers a very good performance. She’s just effortless & gets a major chunk of screen presence in the movie. She’s a talent to look out for. Finally Sumeet Vyas gets his due, not fully though! He’s hilarious and is a comic relief along with Manoj Pahwa.
Veere Di Wedding Review: Direction, Music
Shashanka Ghosh gets a lot of fancy stuff on his plate than he can handle. He’s pretty ordinary given all the resources he got for the film. It’s Sudhakar Reddy Yakkanti’s cinematography that fails. He’s the one who hit the ball out of the park with his work in Sairat. Here, it becomes too messy and conjusted in some scenes.
Tareefan was missing from the film! Yes, how can you skip a song that has been an instant favourite of many out there? It might have been a second song in ending credits because they start with Bhangra Ta Sajda (But, why keep it in so end & I didn’t wait for it.) Laaj Sharam works well given the situation it’s played. Arijit Dutta’s background score is passable, nothing sensational.
Veere Di Wedding Review: The Last Word
All said and done, Veere Di Wedding is entertaining but only in parts. Good looking people reveal their messed up life & it might find a connect but with a very limited range of audience. Kareena Kapoor Khan has looked like a million dollars!
Two and a half stars!
