An official remake (also by the same director) of the Tamil film Kalyana Samayal Saadham, Shubh Mangal Saavdhaan is a breezy tale of a man with erectile dysfunction whose marriage is to happen in a few days. Concept = 10/10.

I haven’t watched the original (although I’ve been suggested the same several times) but I can assure you that you will have a good time watching Shubh Mangal Saavdhaan. It is a cute little film and there are enough good things about it which far outweigh the minor lags, particularly in the second half, and a not-so-satisfying / kind of bland climax.

The film also kicks off rather strangely. Hardly any time is taken to introduce characters; we are just dropped into the setting that is their lives and from there on, you are on-board! By the time those annoying late-comers to the movies finish coming in the way of your watching, you see Mudit (Ayushmann) line-maar-ing Sugandha (Bhumi). Arey kuch toh batao na in logon ke baare mein? Anyway, the first is super-smooth and before you realize it, you’re half way through the film. I had problems buying into their love story BEFORE the marriage proposal comes in, though. It wasn’t given enough importance, like the part I said about establishing characters. I would have bought the emotional scenes, especially in the second half, a bit more readily had this pre-marriage love story been more convincing. Happy to report, the movie more than makes up for it in the form of some brilliant and simply funny dialogue writing by Hitesh Kewalya, screen presence of Ayushmann and Bhumi and the lighthearted treatment of the script.

Although the movie is centered on the condition of erectile dysfunction, it never goes into medico mode to throw at our faces all the facts and figures, what should or should not be done about it. It also doesn’t venture into making mockery out of the condition. There’s no pity for the character, either. Basically, very less drama about the condition itself. What we watch is not probably what happens, sadly, but you like what you watch. You wish reality was this kind and understanding. But, anyway, suffice to say there’s no Masti and Grand Masti wala humor. The film instead banks on the concept of sticking to the central theme and never wavering from it. That’s what works in its favor.

Of its 1hr 45mins, the final 10-15 are the weakest. I wanted more from those dozen minutes. This belongs to that section of films which I probably will never watch again but were fun while they played out! I liked it!

I’m going for 3.5 out of 5 for this one! Recommended!
