    Band Baaja Baaraat rating: 7 out of 10(Aakash Barvalia wrote on 11 Dec 2010)

    After a long back in our Indian cinema a new concept is being presented in our baaratis plate, and the happy note is that this dish is very delicious except for the sweetness which the write and the director Manish Sharma skipped to add in the climax. Let’s analyze what sweetness was missing in the film.

    Shurti (Anushka Sharma) is a college student and a pakka Delhite girl or can be said as muffad chokri. Bittu (Ranveer Singh) is also a college student and a pakka Delhi ka jabru jawan munda, who has neither aim in his life nor smart enough to understand somebody’s feelings, but is very good from heart. Shruti though is a college student but aspires to become an ace wedding planner and wants to create a big name of her upcoming business ‘Shaadi Mubarak Ho’. Initially she works as an assistant somewhere but one day co-incidentally she met Bittu in one of her client’s marriage and had some tu-tu main-main between them. Later as the story moves they often met each other and became good friends. Now one day Bittu’s family log came inside the college and ordered him to come with them at their village so that he can become a farmer. As Bittu doesn’t wished to go he pleaded Shruti to be a partner or assistant in her business. However soon they both became partner and rapidly got offers and clients one by one, but before that they made a strong rule between them that, Jisse vyapaar karo usse kabhi na pyaar karo. Now one fine day, after the celebration of their grand success in their Wedding planning ka business, Bitto and Shruti got highly drunk and some dot-dot-dot happened between them. After this Shruti felt something for Bittu and fell in love with him, but Bitto didn’t understood his own feeling, remained unaware and stick to the rule. Later many ego problem clashed between them, many fights occurred and finally they both separated and started their own respective wedding planning ka business. The story then revolves how they again re-unite and how Bitto realizes his own feeling towards Shruti.

    Writer and director Manish Sharma made his debut very impacting and powerful. His direction was indeed very smart, very stylish and awfully hypnotizing. Though apart from some continuity mistakes while taking master to close shot, or two shot to master, and so on; Manish Sharma gave an effective direction to atleast entertain mango people. However many small little shots taken to narrate the story so that it brings pace to the story without any distraction, was absolutely a round of applause that Manish deserve. Especially all the wedding planning arrangement sequences, to explain Shruti and Bitto’s character in short, for not showing any faltu ka drama and khichanpatti scenes whether in friendship, love or fight or anything. Writing of the film was very crisp and almost each and every scene was cut to short, explained many things in few scenes, and plus making a feel of love story atmosphere throughout the film, except for the climax one, which is though very important in any film. The climax scene was scripted and even directed ‘bass aeve he’. I still remember that one of the dialogue of Bitto saying to Shruti in climax that, “tumhare saath har pal mauja he mauja hain, shaddi planning ke business mein bhi tere saath kaam karke mujhe mauja milta hain, agar isse pyar kehte hain toh I love you.” Now what does that mean? Is it that Bitto only want to stay with Shruti because he is enjoying her company in their business? This dialogue explains that, but in actual it’s not that. Though in film Bitto is having strong feeling to Shruti, but in the end the director and the writer didn’t showed or didn’t portrayed those feeling, which was very important key factor of the film. On the whole this ‘aeve he’ climax part was not at all digestive and not at all convincing.

    Performances in the film by each and every cast were great and especially by the two main leads. Anushka Sharma was very high on energy, very energetic, portrayed her role very effectively, and in the entire film she was fultoo dhamaal. One of my favorite scenes of her was that when she realizes that Bitto is not in love with her and she cries and then trying not to cry and trying to control her emotions. It was just fantastic, my heart meltdown when she was crying, simply marvelous. The newcomer Ranveer Singh was very promising and by his much full of life talent, he has just mesmerized everybody who has watched his performance on screen.

    Last verdict:
    Be the baaraati, attend this wedding at nearest theatre to you, have popcorn and samosa as buffet dinner, get yourself entertain throughout, but either skip the climax or just ‘aeve he’ watch the climax part.

    3.5 / 5
