Baaraat Company Review By Vishal Verma, Glamsham Editorial

This rom com with a twist, fails to stick. Director Syed Ahmad Afzal (previous YOUNGISTAAN) tries his hand at a desi quirky take on Bollywood romances and succeeds to a very limited extend.


Immu (Ranveer Kumar) runs a wedding company by the name BAARAAT COMPANY which makes sure that adult couples in love cannot elope and stay together. The company ensures that the bride or the bridegroom marry to the partner chosen by their parents. There is a level of quirkiness in Immu's gang which consists of a lanky Jackson (Abhimanue Arun), a short Diljala (Kumar Saurabh) and a eunuch Rani (Jaihand Kumar). They are against love and this anti romance squad gets a revelation when their leader Immu falls in love with Mehek (Sandeepa Dhar) - close friend of Immu's latest assignment Yasmin (Anurita Jha) in Lucknow.

What happens next is everybody's guess and after the initial reels the flavor of a rom-com with a difference gets evaporated.

Ranveer Kumar as Immu is the weakest link in this film. He is also a part of four member strong screenplay team that after introduction might have decided to enjoy the delicacies of the amazing Lucknow cuisine. Soaked in the city's nawabi tradition (thanks to the amazing, kabab, biryani, matar chaat, chaudhri ki puri, the movie doesn't takes us over there but in matter to extract some juice out of this bland saga, the names of the dishes are shared) the team of writers seem to be following the 'pehle aap' wala famous Lucknow tradition and end up nowhere.

The humour is insipid and the only redeeming factor in this bore-com is Sandeepa Dhar whose character shows some graph.

Director Syed Ahmad Afzal fails in maintaining the essence felt in the first 10 - 15 minutes and seems to have lost in the world famous 'Bhool Bhulaiya' (A labyrinth of about a thousand passageways) in Lucknow's Bada Imambara. Enter only if you know the way out.
