One more small budget film on a simple theme which is likely to be appreciated by most people. Definitely unconventional and not mainstream cinema of the YRF type. It's warm vibes will specially connect with a number of middle class people in the smaller towns. Since it set in 90s,it exudes a retro feel with cassette players and song by Kumar Shanu.
It is about a mismatched newly married couple, mismatched because the young wife is overweight, this being not a very uncommon problem. How they reconcile to this situation after getting almost divorced forms the rest of the film ending in a climax where the husband carries his bulky bride piggybank in a race.
After marriage the new bride is supposed to be "carrying" but the fact is that she is literally "carried" by her husband in a peculiar running race which they win and " Eureka"! love blooms and all misunderstandings are sorted out.
The story is set in a lower middle class family in Hardwar in the 90s and veteran actors Sanjay Mishra and Seema Pahwa play the parents of the boy( Anshuman Khurana) to near perfection. A rerun of "Ankhon Dekhi" almost.
Director Sharat Katariya has made a fairly entertaining film.Some very good shooting in the narrow lanes of Hardwar and some well established scenes of domestic tiff and happiness alternately.The young brother is upset since the bride, his sister, is back home and wants her room back.In another scene, hearing the squeaking honeymoon bed the the boy's father tells the mother " Your son has grown up !". There are some other good directorial touches which add sweetness to the proceedings.
Some good acting by all including Anshuman and Bhumi Pednekar as the young maladjusted confused couple. Sanjay Mishra and Seema Pahwa as the parents are superb as usual.
