Bollywood is replete with films based on the subject of Marriage. In recent times if there was a ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ and ‘Behen Hogi Teri’ then we also had ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’and a ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’. We now have ‘Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana’ that is directed by Ratnaa Sinha who is filmmaker Anubhav Sinha’s wife. The story of the film is quite clichéd and feels like a mixture of a number of recent hits.

The movie starts from Kanpur where we have our hero Satyendra (Rajkummar Rao) all set to marry the girl of his dream Aarti (Kriti Kharbanda). It is an arranged marriage but the duo soon fall in love where the girl put forwards a condition that she would like to work after marriage. But the hero’s mother is against the idea, so the heroine decides to leave the wedding and runs away to pursue her dreams. The hero is left brokenhearted and soon turns into a revenge driven man out to teach a lesson to the heroine.

Will he be able to do so? Or will his love for the girl subdue his revenge? Will the two have a happily ever after? All this and many other questions will be answered in the film.

The first half of the film is smooth. Yes, the writer Kamal Pandey has infused some amazing sequences but the second half leaves you a tad disappointed.

Rajkummar Rao proves once again why he is known as one of the finest performer. The ‘Newton’ star has done a wonderful job in this too. But if only the story was not so clichéd.

Kirti Kharbanda will sway you with her charm. The actress needs some good scripts to prove her mettle in the industry.

The supporting actors like Govind Namdev, Vipin Sharma and Manoj Pahwa are fantastic in their respective roles.

The direction is good but what lets the film down is the story that is truly the weakest link. The music of the film too is not much to talk about. Though a couple of songs make an impact but the rest just fade from your memory.

Watch the film for Rajkummar Rao.
