Every Rajkummar Rao fan waits eagerly for his movies to release and you just can’t afford to miss it. His choice of selecting movies is different and they always hold strong message behind them. Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana seemed equally promising through its trailer, but the movie didn’t hit so well with the audience. The storyline had too many loopholes to handle. Though the cast of the movie was brilliant, but the plot went too weak in the second half.
Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana is a sweet romantic movie starring Rajkummar Rao and Kriti Kharbanda in the lead role. All the actors in the movie have done a commendable job and their acting is pretty much good. Rajkummar is effortless and natural in the movie as always and he has played the role of a simple boy as well as the confident strong role amazingly. Kriti Kharbanda did her debut in this movie and she looks pretty and charming with a beautiful voice modulation and lovely expressions. She certainly is here to stay. Another brilliant performance in the movie is that of Nayani Dixit who plays the role of the lead lady’s sister. Her acting skill is like free flowing water, full of realism.
It is about a couple who meet each other for an arranged marriage and how things evolve between them during their courtship period. The first half of the movie goes smoothly and well without a moment of boredom. The beginning of the second half shows the actors in a very strong role and position but then you realize that the story is unnecessarily being stretched and you lose interest in the movie and wish for it to end soon.
Satyendra and Aarti meet each other for the first time and agree for the arranged marriage. The courtship period is full of love, simplicity, romance and friendship. Satyendra beautifully says that he doesn’t want a typical wife but he seeks for a friend in his wife, who will be his friend for life. The innocence in both the characters makes you fall for them. The movie also shows the dowry system that still prevails today. That particular part in the movie could have been shown being dealt in a better way. On the wedding night Aarti finds out that she has cleared the UPS exam which very handful of people can at one go. She feels extremely happy when her sister tells her that her mother-in-law is headstrong that she won’t allow her to work and her life will stay confined within the walls. She urges her to run away and make a difference in her life. Being in a fix, Aarti does as told and runs away from the marriage. Here Satyendra is left heartbroken and is shattered to pieces on learning the same.The second half of the movie is about how Satyendra seeks to get revenge for what Aarti had done to him and his parents when he again ends up falling for her.
Probably for the first time we see Rajkummar Rao grooving to the beats of “Pallo Latke” and it’s a nice try we must say. The movie has some soulful number in “Jogi”, “ Main Hoon Saath Tere” and “Tu Banja Gali Banaras Ki”.
You will find a bit resemblance of the movie with “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania”, but again it has its own essence alive. If you want to go for a laid back movie this week, then Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana is the one for you.
