Storyline

Love hits people in all sorts of ways. To Sanjay (Uday Chopra) however, love hit him like a ton of bricks. Sanjay is the dithering Casanova, constantly bungling up his romantic liaisons, till one day the phone rings. Anjali (Sanjana) his childhood friend is getting married. It's now that the bricks fall on him. Observing Sanjay's reaction to this news and hearing him talk of Anjali, his flat mate Ria (Bipasha Basu) concludes that Sanjay is in love with her. Sanjay wakes up to this truth, reluctantly but surely and sets off on a noble mission - to break the wedding. He is overjoyed to be reunited with Anjali - till he meets the groom to be - handsome, charismatic, every girl's dream guy, Rohit (Jimmy Shergill). Nevertheless, Sanjay's love for Anjali compels him to take on the world and he sets off on his crusade of poisoning the family's mind against Rohit. It's all about a clash between the good and the not-so-good. Written by Official Source

Enjoyable flick
11 November 2003 | by Ace_of_HeartsSee all my reviews

Having recently revived my interest for Bollywood movies, I was pleasantly surprised by 'Mere Yaar Ki Shadi Hai'. One only has to read the story to know that it is based on Hollywood's romantic comedy 'My Best Friend's Wedding'. Only the gender roles are reversed. Boy and girl are friends. Girl announces her engagement. Boy realises how much he loves her and tries to win her heart. Unfortunately the husband-to-be isn't a total prat, but handsome and charming.

The story has nothing new to add, but is despite that quite enjoyable. The songs are beautiful and the dances are quite exquisite, especially the one performed at the bachelor party. Who says women can only steam up a bachelor party by taking of their clothes? This scene is indeed sexier than any old striptease.

Naturally the film had some flaws. Not only technical, but also emotional flaws. But all in all, I very much enjoyed this film and can recommend it.

Bipasha Basu was absolutely adorable. My only regret is that her role was so small. She would have made an excellent leading lady in this movie.

***/5 stars
