Storyline

Yash Raj Films' "Sui Dhaaga - Made in India" is a heartwarming story of pride and self reliance, which finds its roots in the heart of India and reflects the passion that runs through the veins of every single Indian. Taking the message of "Made in India" forward, the film modestly tries to bring back our traditional art forms and handicrafts in focus. The film is helmed by National award winning Producer - Director Duo of Maneesh Sharma and Sharat Katariya "Dum Laga Ke Haisha" and features Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma in the lead roles. Through the hero and his wife, film talks about the need of social entrepreneurship as a tool for social and economic development of our artisans, living their life in the margins due to the changing times. Set in a small town in India, the film encapsulates the journey of an honest man from a humble background, who pursues his passion, overcoming all odds and soon finds himself on the cover of an international magazine with the world taking note ...

Sui Dhaaga was a good attempt spoiled by bad climax
29 September 2018 | by ketgup83See all my reviews

Small town stories seems to be have come back in Bollywood - Main Meri Patni Aur Woh, Manorama Six Feet Under, Bareily Ki Barfi, Stree, Batti Gul Meter Chalu and now Sui Dhaaga. Audience love to watch the simplicity of these places, the culture followed by locals with no flashy and grandeur sets. Sui Dhaaga was almost there but few glitches turned against the film.

Sui Dhaaga tells the story of Mauji (played by Varun Dhawan) who plays a bootlicker in a stable job until his wife Mamta (played by Anushka Sharma) makes him to realize to think big in his life and start something on his own.

Directed by Sharat Katariya, who earlier made the brilliant Dum Laga Ke Haisha and 10 ML Love , Sui Dhaaga is yet another fine attempt. He succeeds in tell the story of a simple, ordinary and middle-class family which will remind of classic movies by Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Basu Chatterjee. The movie is intrinsic to its core right from the beginning with hilarious moments enough to tickle your funny-bone during the first half. The initial reel will definitely bring down the house especially the hospital scene where Mauji and his father argues and all of sudden, nurse shouts at them to get out and fight some where else. Even the scene where Mauji's mother ask Mamta to make sure to fill up the bucket full of water, even she is recovering from a heart attack is funny. Hats off to the director and script writer for making the best out of it. Unfortunately, the movie starts dying in the later part of the film where Sharat infuses too much of melodrama and makes it a mess. The fashion show was too much to digest and spoils the mood of the film.

Sui Dhaga might remind you of Will Smith's Pursuit Of Happyness as it has similar touch to the background score and yet is convincing. Cinematography is nice while art direction is very good. Dialogues are good. Music is by Anu Malik is fine. Sui Dhaaga boast some of the fine performances in recent times. Raghuveer Yadav as a frustrated father is marvelous. Varun Dhawan does a fabulous job as a push-over, loyal son. Anushka Sharma is astounding. She is calm and sober and yet powerful from inside who believes in her husband.

Overall, Sui Dhaaga, with few short comings, can be watched once for some good moments. Good 3/5
