Shashanka Ghosh always belonged to low budget and content based films. With Khoobsoorat, he made a relatively bigger film, and now with Veere Di, he expanded his zone. Well, the trailers very much indicate that it is not a sweet chick flick film but about badass girls married with cuss words. Will this movie click with the viewer with all ‘we will break the stereotypes’ talk going around? The answer is yes and no.
The movie is about four girl friends and one of them is going to get hitched. The movie is all about their views, their experiences, their opinions, and of course their flaws. Kalindi is played by Kareena Kapoor, and she is obviously the main-main lead. Sonam Kapoor comes next who is being pestered by her mom to find her match and she plays Avni. Sakshi and Meera are played by SwaraBhasker and ShikaTalsania respectively. All the four have their own drawbacks and way to deal with thins, some soft, some hard, some witty and some foolish. However, these childhood friends discuss their matters, laugh out, give mutual gyan, and no are no experts either. The movie is about what all the four stories culminate into.
The movie is definitely new to Bollywood, if not path breaking. New, in the terms of taking popular actors and making them talk unabashed lines. Coming to the lines, there are plenty of one-liners that tickle your funny bone, and there are some unnecessary ones too, which try hard. The content is however a little laidback if we compare it to the stuff that we see on the internet. Plenty of webseries and videos are being made about the gender specific humour. In that way, Veere di doesn’t offer anything new, it’s just the glam that’s added to the film, more importantly because two fashionistas are on board. However, there are many moments that work in the film. One major drawback of the film is the depth in the content. The writing doesn’t touch the soul of the ladies. The writers paid more attention to what can bring more humour that adding layers to the leads. This affected in not creating a strong connection to the viewer, making it a film that can be watched in leisure. Another thing the movie does it wrong is, promoting the unabashed unsolicited and unwarranted acts as a representation of women empowerment. Unfortunately, that has become the way to represent these days. Some scenes are utterly ridiculous degrading men.
Performances wise, the lead cast is perfect. The casting was done so right. The girls took a leap, and moreover, they utilized their screen space well. Among the four Swara and Shika do take the prizes. The supporting cast also does a decent job. A special mention to the dialogue writers for pulling off some whacky but funny lines.
A couple of tracks are already on the top charts and the cinematography is good. The production design looks glossy.
In a nutshell, Veere di will be enjoyed thoroughly by the current gen women who want to break free.
