At least a decent effort ahead than the usual joke based comedies, being blindly made in Punjabi Cinema.
A surprisingly decent film based on some inspired plots, RSVP is surely much ahead than those silly joke based comedies being made left & right in Punjab, just to en-cash the ongoing trend in the name of cinema. It has an entertaining first half as the reverse gender version of LADIES VS RICKY BAHL (2011) featuring Neeru Bajwa as the con-woman. And then post intermission it drags to some extent, taking the clear clues from the good old DILWALE DULHANIYA LE JAAYENGE (1995), wherein Harish Verma tries to win her lady love back though his sincere efforts.
With a delightful as well as thoughtful sequence featuring Rana Ranbir and Rajpal Yadav in the opening hour (in guest roles), RSVP rightly makes an initial positive impact and then keeps delivering the content till the end in a more or less engaging manner. Though the pace drops in its few predictable sequences post interval, but the performances don't let it slide down heavily, offering a fine (old school) climax reminding you of the good old days of Punjabi Cinema. Superbly performed by Harish Verma and Neeru Bajwa, its time the Industry realizes the hidden talent in Harish instead of trying only the few saleable names in a repetitive mode. Jaswinder Bhalla thankfully underplays it well and so do Navneen Nishan, Gugu Gill, Jaswant Dhaman and Pukhraj Bhalla in their respective roles.
Well directed by Vijay Kumar Arora, RSVP never gives you the feeling of a hurriedly made project like several recently released Punjabi movies do. It has many pleasant, well shot sequences (like the scenes in Amritsar) along with few good songs & dialogues rendered entertainingly. But if you are expecting an out and out comedy or laugh riot (as usual) then this doesn't fall in that avoidable category, bringing the much needed welcome change in the region. So in case you are fed up of all those mindless, mediocre comedies made without any quality vision, then RSVP can be surely tried for a weekend family outing without any doubt.
However ending on an alarming note, the visionary industry people are visibly doing their bit by making decent family entertainers like RSVP. But its now only on the viewers to convert a good film (other than comedy) into a big hit pretty fast, otherwise Punjabi Cinema will soon reach the saturation point of disaster as witnessed in the Bhojpuri Film Industry a few years back.
