Sui Dhaaga Movie Reviews
Director: Sharat Kataria
Music: Anu Malik
Artists: Varun Dhawan, Anushka Sharma, Raghuveer Yadav
Rating: 2.5 / 5
Some films based on small town stories have been successful and that is why similar films are being made continuously these days. 'Sui Dhaaga' is the latest film in this episode which is produced by Sharat Kataria. They have already made 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha'.
Before watching the film, the important question was that what stars like Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma would be able to do justice to the lower middle class characters? Both these artists did their job well, but the screenplay did not support them. Mauji (Varun Dhawan) is Mauji as per his name. In all the deprivation, 'all the best' comes out of his mouth. He lives with his wife Mamta (Anushka Sharma) and parents. From a shop, he quits the job because along with the work, Seth enjoys it by making him a dog or a monkey and Mamata does not like this. Mauji starts tailoring. In the absence of a shop, he sits with a machine on the roadside. Mamta moves with him in this work.
Even the film runs very well. This serious matter has also been well presented by the director and writer with a cast of humor. Good scenes have been made about the negative son and father's clash, money strapped, mother's illness. You also laugh and some scenes make you emotional too. Even in the midst of life's struggle, the character of Mauji, being happy, dreaming and moving forward, connects him to the audience.
Where Mauji is weak in worldliness, Mamta handles him and walks with him shoulder to shoulder. The galloping film for an hour starts stopping in the second hour. There are some speed breakers in the story that hinder the pace of the film. The film starts wandering around. The writer did not understand how to end the matter now. The struggle to get the sewing machine and the fashion show in which the events of Mauji-Mamta are participating have been highlighted.
These have been written according to their convenience. Suddenly the realistic film starts dropping with reality. There are some funny and emotional scenes in between that handle the film, but they do not leave that much of an impact as the story is not believable. Also, what can happen next in the film can be easily guessed. Sharat Kataria's work as a director is good.
He has presented a simple story well. The relationship between the characters and the emotion has fueled them well. It has best depicted the troubles and struggles of a low-income family. If he had the backing of the story in the second half, it would have been a great film. The acting of all the actors is the big plus point of the film.
They bind through their acting. Varun Dhawan has played the character of an ordinary boy in a brilliant manner, keeping his stardom on the side. His character is very positive and he has shown this by his acting. Anushka Sharma has played them well. He has shown courage in performing a simple look and a non-glamorous character.
All other artists including Raghuveer Yadav have also done their work brilliantly. The background music of the film is good. The songs suit the mood.
There are many heart touching scenes in Sui Dhaaga, but this cannot be said about the entire film.
