Debutant Director Maneesh Sharma makes a good entry in filmdom with 'Baand Baaja Baaraat'. This Romantic-Comedy has an interesting first hour, likable performances, soulful music & good direction working on it's advantage.
'Baand Baaja Baaraat' is tale of 2 wedding planners, who later fall in love with each-other. The lead characters are amusing, but they speak the language one is able to relate with.
Maneesh Sharma succeeds by making his characters feel as if they live next-door, and the screenplay by Habib Faisal is spot-on in the first hour. However, the writing in the second hour isn't that convincing and drags a bit, especially pre-climax. Music by Salim-Sulaiman is soulful and acts as a plus-point.
Performance-Wise: Anushka Sharma is efficient. Ranveer Singh may not have the ideal Hero looks, but he sure is a natural performer. The chemistry between Anushka-Ranveer throughout is very good. In the supporting cast, Neeraj Sood is lovable and most memorable.
On the whole, A Decent Flick, that easily makes a good one-time watch.
