Storyline

Employed as a Librarian in Lucknow University's Tagore Library, Mithilesh Shukla is a 34-year, vertically challenged (just 5'2") old bachelor, who has an extended family consisting of two sisters and one brother, all married, as well as his widowed mother. His maternal uncle, Advocate Kishorilal Mishra, and his mother persuade him to travel to Bareilly to see a prospective bride, and he does so. He is introduced to statuesque Veena Tiwari, both converse, and find themselves compatible. Shortly, thereafter Veena is introduced to the rest of the Shukla family, the couple get married, and she moves in with Mithilesh. He will soon find people staring at them, as she towers over him, raises the seat of his motorbike, as well as visits a footpath vendor to increase his height. But when everything fails, he starts making excuses not to be seen with her in public. Things only get worse after his employer hires a much taller computer operator, Akash, who is known to Veena, and he suspects both... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

WOW! This is called a movie!
5 January 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I am usually quite skeptical about the new bollywood movies because there is nothing much except flashing naked bodies, senseless songs, silly dialogs and stale story line in them. However, occasionally Bollywood does churn out some jewels. This is one of them and this one took my heart. The story? Is very simple, I almost knew the ending but I was still urged to watch it all. Why? I don't know why! But what I know is that the movie captures the life of a typical Indian middle-class family and puts it on the screen in the most subtle way. Especially those sensitive moments are portrayed in the most beautiful manner. For example, when Mithilesh (played by Rajpal Yadav) meets his to be wife for the first time, you can feel the tingling sensation within – i.e., the same sensation when you 'saw' your spouse for the first time before marriage. The story is so down-to-earth and close to real-life that you feel 'living' through it.

Highly recommended! Kudos to the people who made it! A sure buy for my DVD collection to support such performances in the future.
