Storyline

Shruti (Anushka Sharma) is a 20-something no-nonsense girl from a middle class Delhi household. Focused and determined with preplanned ambitions, her goals in life are well laid out by the time she reaches her final year of college. Bittoo (Ranveer Singh), on the other hand, has no real aim in life.

A Decent Flick...
5 February 2011 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

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.
