It was love at first sight for unemployed Ashish Khanna and Rani Bhalla at a cold drink stall. When Rani introduces Ashish to her businessman dad, Tau, and mom, they unanimously frown upon this alliance, until Ashish promises to get a job, save enough money, buy a flat, etc.. Ashish does get a small job with Izzat Papads, and then also starts selling steroids out of the back of a van. He gets noticed by a Ad-firm owner, and gets hired. Soon he has all the luxuries that he had always dreamed of. When the Bhallas come to know about this, they decide to welcome him as their son-law, and a lavish engagement party takes place. It is then Ashish finds out that he has cancer, and he begins to create misunderstandings between him and Rani. He tries becoming an alcoholic, but that is considered normal with the Bhalla family; he confesses to Rani that he has loved Sania, a model with ad-agency, which is welcomed by Rani as being truthful and honest.

I didn't expect much from the film, but the least I expected was something that would at least crack me up. Unfortunately, this film was excruciatingly painful to sit through. I expected much more from Akshaye Khanna. While he was borderline watchable, I suspect Mallika, on the other hand, was only there as eye candy, because she was really bad in the film. Some lines in the film were so lame, you had to laugh to relieve the pain of the rest of the film. On overall, not quite as funny as promoted, a lot more painful than advertised. Suniel Shetty brightened up the screen when he was on-screen, but again, this film was really terrible generally that not even the bright star of Shetty can save it. Painful. Very painful, indeed. If you feel like a night of a senses-dulling movie, then Shaadi Se Pehle is for you. If not, then I suggest you stay far away from this film. Word of advice for the brave: make sure you're really wasted before you attempt to sit through this movie.
