Review: Everyone’s dancing and making merry in the Khullar household, especially Tej (Ram Kapoor) who is all set to gift would-be son-in-law Raj and daughter Tanvi a brand new Maruti Ertiga gaddi on their wedding day. While the wedding preparations are in full swing, Tej’s son Sameer (Saqib Saleem) is the daft guy who aspires to woo the hot ‘Shakira of Chandigarh’ Jazzleen (Rhea Chakraborty). She calls him ‘psychic’ (thinking it’s the same as ‘psycho’) and he tells her, ‘I am love you’.
In order to patau the pataka, Sameer uses the new car and ends up losing it! The car goes missing, thus forcing Sameer and his best friend Gattu (Prabal Panjabi) to form a complex web of lies to save Sameer from the wrath of his father.
The film sticks to a YRF’s (Yash Raj Films) staple brand of entertainment; it revolves around a Punjabi family, the backdrop a lavish Punjabi wedding. Since the ‘Punjabi’ card has been used in films for years, it makes the film look a tad conventional.
However, in spite of certain cliches, the film manages to entertain you with its effortless performances, simple story and situational humour. Scenes where Sameer and his friends are being chased by cops, Gattu referring to Sameer’s poor English as ‘tatti English’, are hilarious. The bride’s outrageous dance number on her wedding day and the Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa-esque climax are few of the high points of the movie.
Rhea Chakraborty as Jazzleen is easy on the eyes, Prabal Panjabi as Gattu is adorable. He evokes maximum laughter. Saqib Saleem is pleasant but lacks the charisma of a lead actor. Ram Kapoor acts over-the-top as required, Ravi Kissen is wasted.
Don’t expect an out-and-out comedy, the film is a light-hearted family entertainer with a message for the youth. Do take your dad along for it, in his gaddi!
Story: A comedy of errors, the film revolves around a brand new Maruti car which goes missing, days before it is to be presented as a wedding gift!
