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)

simply charming!
21 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A movie that tugs at your heartstrings with its simplicity and abundance of charm.

Plot Summary: Chote Sahab (Rajpal Yadav) reluctantly agrees to look over a prospective bride, Veena. He sees her and falls head over heels, they connect at some elemental level and get married. So what's the problem? Veena is a stunningly beautiful, tall woman and Chote Sahab is a dumpy short guy. You know what they say about the insecurities of the short men.. He sees trouble everywhere - the vegetable seller, the milk man, the tempo driver, his friend, her friend, all seem to be better looking and taller than him! He tries to wend his way through this minefield of more suitable men, using means both comical (fires the milk man!) and slick (gets her to tie a 'rakhi on his friend's wrist!). But her friend (Kay Kay Menon) is harder to get rid of. Misunderstandings abound, the inevitable breakup happens... watch the rest.

However, the charm of the movie is not in the rather simplistic plot but in its execution. Rituparna Sengupta is stunning as Veena - beautiful and vulnerable but never sugary sweet. See her in the ending moments of the film - stellar performance. Rajpal Yadav has been a favorite of mine since I saw him as the "video pirate" Guru in Kal Ho Naa Ho! Here he plays the diffident, suspicious yet simple, husband very well. Kay Kay Menon shines as Veena's friend - he does a great job as the free spirited slick Akash. The best part of the film is the down to earth locale of the city of Lucknow. The University, Hazratganj, the residential colonies, the teeming traffic - this is a slice of ordinary life rarely seen in films. Music is divine - I will have to watch out for more music by Sanjay Jaipurwale. The outstanding numbers are the Ghazal 'Guncha Koi Mere Naam Kar Diya, Saki Ne Phir Se Mera Jaam Bhar Diya', and 'Doob Jaana Re".

Watch it if you want to see an authentic setting framing a great story about real people. You will not be disappointed!
