RABBA MAIN KYA KAROON appeals in bits and spurts

A rom-com with the backdrop of a big fat Punjabi wedding, RABBA MAIN KYA KAROON tells the story of two brothers [Arshad Warsi and Akash Chopra]. Akash is all set to tie the knot in Delhi, but before the wedding, Arshad and his three mamas [Paresh Rawal, Tinnu Anand and Shakti Kapoor] teach him the key formula for a happy married life -- in order to live a happy married life, one must cheat on his wife. When any film that touts itself as being a comedymore

The film provides few laughs, but mostly lacks comedy or romance

Warning for Men only: If you're cheating on your wife, or planning a feisty fling - keep the married-half away from this one. So let's get started. With the coitus of the problem - Shaadi. Well, this is a Big Fat Indian Wedding (for the umpteenth time). Oh yes, it's Punjabi too (surprise, surprise!) - With a battalion of baraatis, desi girls, daru and dancing aplenty. While the mummyjis and maamijis (high-voltage at all times) are busymore

Rabba Main Kya Karoon is a joyride

Mira Nair's Monsoon Wedding proved it once for all. Only Greek weddings need not be big and fat, Punjabi Indian weddings don't lag far behind either. Bollywood has over the years developed a peculiar partiality towards romantic-comedies set during wedding celebrations. Aditya Chopra's Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge did it too. And got away with it with spectacular success. Director Amrit Sagar Chopra, who has to his credit that very finemore

Regressive therapy

Rabba Main Kya Karoon is the kind of movie that renders the disclaimer at the beginning about the characters being fictitious entirely unnecessary. It is essentially a textbook on how (and I quote a dialogue from the film here) "to lead a happy life, you must cheat on your wife". Of course, it is not really a textbook. It's Arshad Warsi spewing advice to an about-to-be-married groom (debutante Akash Chopra) that is not to be tried at homemore

A film which shows every woman to be as dumb as a mule, doesn't merit a review

Once in a while comes a film that manages to make you squirm in your seats from the word go. As soon as Arshad Warsi walks into this movie and starts spouting wisdom about male testosterone and how men have to have enough practice to keep their wives ‘satisfied’, I wanted to run away as far as possible from him, his ilk and this movie. All that could go wrong is wrong in this movie. Seriously. A film which depicts every woman availablemore

Rabba, what do I do???

You could say the title over and over again, and then again some more. What have they done with this movie? With such seniors and talented actors like Paresh Rawal, Shakti Kapoor, Tinnu Anand, Sushmita Mukherjee, Rakesh Bedi and Raj Babbar one would expect some semblance of a plot. But here there is nothing. Nothing at all. A cousin brother is explaining to his younger sibling why he should 'get dirty' before marriage, with anyonemore

The best way to be a faithful husband is to cheat on your wife. I'm not saying this. It's this film that is, and in the most juvenile manner. Tons of movies in the past have revolved around randy husbands and long-suffering wives. Not just Hollywood, Bollywood is full of gabby sex gurus, and naïve chelas. Here we go again. Rabba Main Kya Karoon has newcomers Aakash Chopra and Tahira Kochar play childhood sweethearts about to be marriedmore
