[Yoesh's star chart says his first relationship is destined to fail but not his second]
Bhavna Hasmukhbhai Shukla: [suggesting a solution] I can only marry you if you've had a complete physical relationship with any girl.
Yogesh B. Patel: "Complete physical relationship" means...?

A Remarkable Film
10 October 2009 | by reubenthegreat88See all my reviews

A remarkable film that looks at the age old tradition of arranged marriages that rely upon the influence of Raashee (zodiac sign) compatibility in selecting the right partner, What's Your Raashee? is a romantic comedy that carries the distinct signature of ace filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker. The film's screenplay is based on the Gujarati novel written by Madhu Rye, titled Kimball Ravenswood, and while Harman Baweja plays the affable Gujarati NRI Yogesh Patel living a perfect life in Chicago, Priyanka Chopra plays a record breaking twelve roles Anjali, Sanjana, Kajal, Hansa, Rajni, Chandrika, Mallika, Nandini, Pooja, Vishakha, Bhavna and Jhankhana all girls whom Yogesh meets in the pursuit of finding his 'suitable bride.'

Yogesh is a young man who in his heart has always wanted a love marriage. Till suddenly he is told that he must find his dream girl within ten days to save his family from utter ruin. Finding the dream girl is tough enough. Finding her in a hurry is even tougher. His solution is simple; he will meet one girl from each Raashee , as he feels that is the best way to make sure he finds a suitable wife, while also giving himself twelve chances to fall in love. Two meetings per day gives him six days to meet them, three days to make a final decision and he can get married on the tenth day, or so he thinks.

Without getting into further details of the plot and the trouble that the family is facing as it will spoil the viewers' fun, one must say that unlike the conventional romantic comedies that Indian cinema offers today, this film reminds you of the genuine charm and humorous undertones of a Hrishikesh Mukherjee or a Basu Chatterjee film of yesteryears. Gowariker weaves comedy and drama deftly amidst extremely hummable songs scored by young Sohail Sen, and every Zodiac sign gets its own signature tune, coming together as an amazing amalgamation in the thirteenth song, Chehre Jo Dekhe Hain, when the protagonist has to make the final choice, and recaps all the twelve wonderful women he has encountered over the past few days. Needless to say, What's Your Raashee? is a musical, and one that takes its leisurely time to unfold, but it is a film that keeps you smiling with your feet tapping through its three hour plus length. A refreshing song laden comedy that reminds you of Hum Aapke Hain Kaun? but with far more humour and variety, it is also a fine showcase of superlative performances from Priyanka Chopra and Harman Baweja.

While Priyanka brings forth a versatility that has to be seen to be believed, Harman gets the Gujarati boy just right, winning your heart with his sincerity he transforms into the perfect Yogesh and carries the film splendidly considering the entire film is his journey and hence the audience sees every match finding encounter through his eyes.

As a high concept idea and beyond, you tend to almost forget that each new girl who is introduced to Yogesh is played by Priyanka Chopra, simply because Priyanka through the smallest nuances and behavioural traits ensures that even in such short screen time, each girl has a well defined overall personality and that each girl is independent of the other; no doubt one of the finest performances by any female actor in Hindi cinema in a long time, under the deft direction of an experienced filmmaker with a wide latitude and unsurpassed emotional maturity.

Supporting actors like Dilip Joshi as Yogesh's brother Jitubhai, Aanjjan Shrivastava as his father Bharatbhai and Darshan Jariwala as Devukaka, the rather interesting uncle, help in enlivening the proceedings, adding colour to the central plot. Of course, one cannot forget Rajesh Vivek as the enterprising jasoos on a mission through the film, who makes every Gowariker film all the more interesting.

Songs like the romantic ballad Jao Na, or Su Che with its mischievous play of words and choreography, or the powerplay of Maanunga, or Pyaari Pyaari with its sweet moments of simple courtship interactions across a working date, are just some examples of how entertainingly every situation is scored and picturised, and every girl has a song to be remembered by.

And yes, the film has a lot to say between the music and comedy, be it through Javedsaab's lyrics, or through the director's perceptive observation of our society and the rules that dictate arranged marriages; the fact that only Gowariker can have subtle messages placed even within a light hearted romantic comedy once again proves that his films may have length, but they also will always have a well placed heart and soul, and will be remembered for years to come as both seminal and entertaining.

BOTTOM LINE - A Remarkable Film.... a big Thumbs UP !!!
