Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan Review: Breaking stereotypes and taboos, Ayushmann Khurrana-Jitendra Kumar own the film
New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: Ayushmann Khurrana-starrer ‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’ released on the big screens today, and without any doubt the audience is expecting a lot from this film owing to the magic Ayushmann has been showcasing from the past two years.
The film is based on the story of a gay couple, who try to overcome the challenges any homosexual couple face in Indian culture.
Kartik Singh (Ayushmann Khurrana) and Aman Tripathi (Jitendra Kumar) fall in love with each other, as they both work as a salesman. The couple lives in Delhi, without any awareness of what is happening around just focussing on their relationship making it grow day by day.
Kartik was shown as a devil-may-care-less attitude man, while Aman -- the small town mentality guy -- is the ladla beta of his family who understands the problems the two will face when their families got to know about their relationship. While Kartik is fully confident of being accepted by the Tripathi family, Aman knows that the chance of acceptance of the two’s relationship is next to impossible.
The storyline, however, is not that straight forward but takes several ups and down to build up the plot before reaching its climax, and revolves around the struggles of Kartik and Aman to prove their love and convince Tripathi family.
The tone throughout the film is satirical and puny, which is boxed under a melodrama with super comic timings from the star cast. The film, however, felt too stretched out at several occasions but it regained its pace as soon as it indulges in emotional scenes. The director has rightly invested the time to depict the small-town drama related to the same-sex relationships and marriages, but failed to highlight the essential elements of a small town and restricts the story to one family.
Talking about the acting, Ayushmann has again proved his mettle in this film and has lived up to the image of a lover who does not care about what society thinks about his choice. While Jitendra has been a complete stunner with his expressionless comic puns and dialogues and in being a much responsible lover.
On the other hand, Gajraj Rao as a failed scientist has done justice to his role with both serious and funny approach when the situation demands him to be. Neena Gupta, as usual, showcased her versatility and delivered some of the best comic punches leaving the audience in splits.
Overall, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is a complete family entertainer which highlights the problems faced by homosexual couples and their challenges due to the taboo embedded in the Indian culture, while it also has some of the best entertaining scenes that will be etched in your mind even after leaving the theatres.
