Shubh Mangal Saavdhan Movie Review: Plot
The movie initiates with Suganda Joshi [Bhumi Pednekar] framing ‘The Great Indian Tamasha’ wedding. Suganda is presently engaged with Mudit Sharma [Ayushmann Khurrana]. The movie then follows up with a sweet flashback story of the couple. It was at the time when Mudit tries to put forward his sexual problem to Suganda.
The remaining part of the movie stands up against the adult issue with some hard-hitting scenes. Suganda is the one to look out for in the film alongside Mudit who is equally good in his role as well. The movie revolves around these two questions: How will their parents react to Mudit’s sexual problem? How will Mudit and Suganda overcome the issue? Wanna know how they do it? Go to theatres and find the answers yourself!
Shubh Mangal Saavdhan Movie Review: Plot Analysis
The movie is beautifully crafted with initially explaining the reasons for the present situation. Following the explanation, the director R S Prasanna ensures that the intensity level of the film continues until the end of the movie. Shubh Mangal Saavdhan is a film that not only discusses the adult issue of a man but also the importance of trust and loyalty that a couple should have to each other during a relationship. The second half and the in particular climax of the film could have been better, but still, given the awesomeness of the first half and the way R S Prasanna sets the bar high, SMS makes up for a good one-time must-watch movie!
Shubh Mangal Saavdhan Movie Review: Star Cast Performance
Ayushmann Khurrana: Awesome. This word describes his performance in the movie perfectly. Ayushmann, again and again, reminds people of how much underrated he is.
Bhumi Pednekar: Like Ayushmann, Bhumi is incredible in his role as well. Right after the success of his previous movie ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’, the actress massively impresses in Shubh Mangal Saavdhan as well.
Supporting Cast: To be honest, not only Ayushmann and Bhumi but also the supporting cast of the film are fantastic in their respective roles.
