As obvious as chai biscuit
, this new addition to B-town wedding kit doesn't fit.
Director Binod Pradhan goes Balle Balle
on the ridiculously predictable Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai
plot thingie where best buddies discover special feelings for each other at their wedding.
Kuch kuch nahi.. kuch nahi hota
hai.. thanks to the treatment which borrows from every hook and corners of Bollywood. Hud hud.
Even a cliched set up if given an innovative treatment works. The makers should refer to examples set by Mr. Imtiaz Ali who has rekindled his love sagas with desired effects.
WEDDING PULLAV is not only banal but it's tiresomely boring cause it fails to get the audience to identify, like, sympathize with the lead characters Aadi (Diganth Manchale) who is getting married to Rhea (Sonalli Sehgall). His best friend Anushka (Anushka Ranjan) is going steady with London based painter Jay (Karan Grover). A decision to get Anushka married with Jay along with Aadi and Rhea lands Jay in Thailand and the woes of the audience never ends.
The writers Shashi Ranjan, Pooja Verma and Rahul Patel's adamant refusal to innovation, proper characterization and treatment to story that urgently demands an ICU turn WEDDING PULLAV (whose title is this) into a misery.
Veteran Binod Pradhan should come with a better script with a title that justifies and explains the story line to showcase his directorial talents.
Even the performance by lead Dignath, including the debutant Anushka, Sonalli Sehgall, Karan Grover are uninspiring.
Veterans Satish Kaushik, Parmeet Sethi, Kitu Gidwani and Himani Shivpuri all are wasted. Salim-Sulaiman's music has nothing to take home.
Last but not the least Rishi Kapoor popularly known as Chintu (means cute little small) is literally reduced to a worthless role in this boredom bulav
in the name of WEDDING PULLAV. Mat jao (avoid).
