Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan (2020)

STORY – 0

ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

 

VERDICT – 1/5

 
PROS –
1) Manu Rishi’s final monologue. He did most of the heavy lifting in this movie. His bickering arguments with Gajraj Rao are the highlights of the movie.
2) Kya Karthe The Saajna remix.

 
CONS –
1) Ayushmann Khurrana role was poorly written. He was completely out of his element.
2) Tanishk Bagchi is a curse on this generation. He’ll end up ruining the entire Bollywood catalog of classic songs.
3) You just can’t make an entertaining movie only because of good actors.

VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) Light-hearted fresh story of a young reluctant panchayat secretary stuck in a village.
2) In the presence of veterans like Neena Gupta, Raghubir Yadav, Jitendra Kumar – the highlight is grabbed by newcomer Chandan Roy as Vikas and Faisal Malik as Prahlad.
3) Fast-paced screenplay without any distracting sub-plot.
4) Looking at TVF’s track-record, a second season is very unlikely to happen. But it’ll be awaited for sure.
