Ali Fazal's web-series film BANG BAAJA BAARAAT from Y-films may share a similar name with YRF's yet another film BAND BAAJA BAARAAT featuring Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma, but concept wise both are quite different. Ali says that BANG BAAJA BAARAAT is a sweet chaotic comedy.
“Yes, a similar name film came from Yash Raj banner (the Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma starrer BAND BAAJA BAARAAT. I think it's a backward entry into that film and it starts with the marriage and ends in a whole beautiful love story. But BANG BAAJA BAARAAT is a comedy and a sweet story although laden with chaos. It talks about a marriage gone wrong. It shows how the perfect kind of marriage also turns into the most f@#&%d up marriage,” Ali says. However, quiz him about sharing similar sounding titles and he quips, “I think someone was just feeling funny at Yash Raj so they came with this name.”
Further giving a gist about BANG BAAJA BAARAAT, Ali says, “It's the story about two different families coming together and how it becomes totally chaotic. Despite being a lovey-dovey Mumbai living couple, when the two families land up, then you discover their original side. It's a khulla chitta of these two metro living individuals, whose individual characters are very layered. When the boy's Kharpur's side meets girl's Delhi complicated side, then all the chaos begins. It's very well written. Anything I say will be less but Anand Tiwari, the director, and Sumit Vyas, who has written it, one of the most promising new writers, have done an amazing job.”

When you have entire family at one place and at the same time you are having your bachelor party also, things can go awfully wrong. And when you have those annoying friends, who are just in the face, then you have the ex-boyfriends coming in…just wonder how nerve-wrecking it becomes. My mother not being able to handle a small simple fact like that the ‘bride' side family is divorced and re-married, blah, blah. Those small things and how they turn into an issue…I think the film has got good balance of emotions, seriousness, and chaotic comedy,” he adds narrating one of the incidents from the film.
While Bollywood films have their own take on marriage, ask what are his beliefs and Ali says openly, “Marriage is not an easy thing. In India, no matter how cool you are at the end of the day it's two families who are actually marrying…India still believes in old system of marriage. We like to think we are modern but that's why we are so mixed up, because this generation is constantly fighting being part of 2015 and at the same time trying to hold our cultural values.”
Well, true said Ali!
