Shubh Mangal Saavdhan tries too hard to be perceived as a comedy drama, but all that it manages to do during its 100+ running time can be described as below average stuff. The central idea of a man (Ayushmann Khurrana) realizing that he has erectile dysfunction (ED) and that his fiancee (Bhumi Pednekar) tries to help him find a solution is pretty interesting, but that's all the film has in store for us. The treatment of the story - where not once do they mention ED or anything obscene - is the second best and the only satisfying thing about Shubh Mangal Saavdhan. The problem is that there is not enough content to fill the balloon here, and the few jokes and witty dialogues that have been sprinkled here and there fall short. Somewhere you get the inkling that this whole thing is going to turn into a mess, thanks to the over-decorated characters, and unfortunately that's what the climax is. Khurrana plays decently but Pednekar becomes nauseating as this typecast role that she's been playing ever since she entered Bollywood. Overall, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan is a rushed effort at showcasing exaggerated buffoonery at an Indian wedding. There is no special need to appreciate this kind of hyperbole even if it's meant for humor. TN.
