Hitesh Kewalya directed Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan has a weak and dramatic plot which would like the fans and audience of the original film to disown their love for the sequel. There have been same-sex love-marriage-stories based films in Bollywood in the past as well. Hence, we needed a stronger, fresher film from the makers of Sbubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, to serve something more decorated and rejuvenated on the content part this time.
The film more appears to be an old monotonous story cut-pasted over a localized not-so-glitzy background featuring new artists.
The film has its fun moments a few times which may make the audience laugh and appreciate but if someone goes with the expectation of the original film, one has to be disappointed.
All actors have done their jobs well. Jitendra Kumar is good to watch but director has failed to utilize him to his best. Gajraj Rao and Neena Gupta are achieving perfection with every film as they progress. Ayushmann Khurrana has acted well. Maanvi Gagroo shines best in task.
Seems, few directors and producers think to believe that a film set in a tier 2 city with actors articulating local dialect and accent is a sure-shot way of box-office success, in spite of the poor screenplay and not so eventful story.
With unimpressive dialogues, repetitive style and crippling formation of plots, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan disappoints.
It’s a one time watch for the fans, and even for new audience. The film deserves 6 out of 10 stars.
