An instant no no, right from the word go.. LAALI KI SHAADI MEIN LAADDOO DEEWANA is that ha ha without that rightly supporting wah wah. This 'Bore Ho Ja Baarat' (Boredom) is an example of how to make a ho-hum.
LAALI KI SHAADI MEIN LADDOO DEEWANA MOVIE STILLS
This twenty something lad called Laaddoo (Vivaan Shah) wants to become rich much faster than the online money transfer and leaves his father's (played by Darshan Jariwala) cycle ki dukaan for bigger makaans and dreams. He lands at Kabir (Sanjay Mishra) cafeteria in Vadodara to bump into a sundara by the name Laali (Akshara Haasan) - seriously what kind of naamkaran are these?. Anyways, Laaddoo is assigned the job to serve coffee ki piyali to Laali who astonishingly sits from 9 to 5 in that cafe and finalizes huge deals. No office wow.. but holy cow, Laali has a boss and this no office wala boss slaps Laaddoo for going lattoo over Laali.. time for taali.. clap clap no.. okay. Writer director Manish Harishankar continues the surreality and we see Laaddoo suddenly turning into a con man. Laaddooji says he is a son of a rich businessman and tries to woo Laali who by this time has shooed her boss for being over possessive.. time for taali.. clap clap.. no.. okay. Anyways Laali and Laaddoo in one of Bollywood's really 'thanda' ( no not cold but coldest) chemistry start working together in an export company owned by Ravi Kishen who believes in the ideology of 2x2 is equal to 42.. Laaddoo is able to cast his spell over Ravi Kishen by his ideas we are told about and gets promoted. Laaddoo and Laali are enjoying each other's company and one day Laali gets pregnant. Laaddoo offers a convenient solution in order to concentrate on his 2x2 is equal to 42 wala dream and delay fatherhood for his good. Guess what happens a slap on Laaddoo's face gets planted by Laali who yells ''Main thappad khaane waali ladki nahi hu'.. Laali leaves Laaddoo and her job. Laaddoo is caught cheating his boss and is thrown out of the job. Laali gets adopted by Laaddoo's parents, she has already left her alcoholic father Ganpat (Saurabh Shukla) by saying the same line ''Main thapad... now its time for taali.. clap clap.. kyu ki it's interval.
Things get more stretched and turn into a never ending soap opera post interval. Now Laaddoo gets adopted (the adoption here is not in legal and literal sense please mind) by Laali's parents. While Laaddoo tries to mend his ways by repairing Ganpat's tube lights, the prince of Ramnagar, Veer (Gurmeet Choudhary) finds a suitable bride in the pregnant Laali. The reason for the cultured, well mannered Veer to marry Laali is a solution to curb their bad luck. Veer has lost his parents and fiancee in a car accident. Veer's family priest offers this solution and they agree. Time for taali.. pls.. no.. ok. Lets continue.
Enters Palak (Kavita Verma) the wannabe Rakhi Sawant who is planted by Ganpat as Laaddoo's bride so that Laali and Laaddoo's parent change their mind but instead Laaddoo befriends Veer. The marriage of Laaddoo with Palak and Veer with Laali is on the same date. Finally Veer comes to know about Laali and Laaddoo.. Laali gives birth to a child and still the movie doesn't end. Taali.. clap for those who have passed this endearingly prolonged test of patience.
This so called candy floss is filled with repeated flaws that you yawn while counting them. The movie looks, feels like a never ending soap opera making you a couch.. oops ouch potato in the theatre shaking your head up down right and center to find anything that can be highlighted in this non -stop bore huye ja saga that sadly lacks a decent raga ( read music) considering being a family rom com.
The performances are as stale as age old aloo puri, the movie is another example of terrible miscasting. Akshara Haasan is bland and her voice and accent doesn't do any good. The role was challenging and a better actress could have done wonders. Vivaan Shah shows some improvement but he is too limited to be a performer. Gurmeet gazes, rides horses, dances all in one expression. The veterans however save their nose at least lead by Saurabh Shukla, Darshan Jariwala and Sanjay Mishra.
Production values are fine and some portions are well shot and the movie looks colorful. Otherwise, LAALI KI SHAADI MEIN LAADDOO DEEWANA is a shiny dead weight bauble that is painstakingly boring to the hilt.
