Vidya Balan (Sulochana a.k.a. Sulu) essays the role of a beautiful, enthusiastic and happy-go-lucky Mumbai housewife whose routine life changes when she unexpectedly lands herself with the exciting job of a night RJ (radio jockey) on a leading radio station.
There were times Bollywood used to make simple and warm stories on lives of middle class family in Mumbai. Films like Baaton Baaton Mein, Chhoti Si Baat or Sansar touched the audience hearts as you could connect with real-life characters. Tumhari Sulu is like a breath of fresh air with superb performance by Vidya Balan.
Tumhari Sulu tells the story of Sulochna who loves to try out new things in life. However, her life changes when she gets the opportunity to become a Radio Jockey for a late-night call show.
First time director, Suresh Triveni, chooses a niche subject to make his Bollywood debut and comes out with a fruitful result. Right from the opening scene, the film will instantly connect you with the real-life characters. The story of a middle class family depicted in Mumbai along with their daily life struggle and happiness is heart-warming and yet convincing. Few scenes will grab your eyeballs- the audition of Vidya Balan at the Radio station, the confrontation between Manav Kaul and Vidya Balan when she gets her first salary and Vidya Balan making her first call as Radio Jockey is spellbinding and memorable. Unfortunately, the script loses the steam in the second half and weak climax plays the spoilsports. Few scenes looks forced which slows down the momentum it built in the first half.
Editing could have been better. Art direction and Cinematography is decent while the music is a plain average. Dialogues are powerful while background is just about okay. The captain of the ship is none other than Vidya Balan. The supremely talented just brings life into the film with electrifying performance. She is equally supported by Manav Kaul who throws in a good surprise. Neha Dhupia and Vijay Maurya provides in adequate support.
Overall, a well-made film with a weak second half. Thank god, Vidya Balan was there to save my day. Good 3/5
