Expectations

Comedy is one such genre which has been ventured by many directors. While, most of them overdo it, there are some which manage to present it in a subtle manner. If audience love those loud slapstick comedies, there are audience who love simple and clean comedies. Thus, the first trailer of 'Behen Hogi Teri' manages to create the right impact and expectation level. Though, the marketing of the film is weak and lacks the crowd pulling factor.

Story

'Behen Hogi Teri' is a story of Gattu (Rajkummar Rao), who right since his childhood is head over heels in love with his neighbor Binny (Shruti Hassan). Sadly, Gattu's father (Darshan Jariwala) believes that every girl from their area is like Gattu's sister. At the same time Binny's elder brother Jairam (Ninad Kamat) and all other family member's treat Gattu as Binny's additional brother. One fine day Gattu expresses his feelings to Binny. After a series of tests, Binny agrees to Gattu's proposal. But, before Gattu and Binny could share about this to their respective families. Gattu's father and Binny's brother misunderstand Gattu's best friend (Herry Tangri) as Binny's lover which leads to total chaos.

The 'Glitz' Factor

The story is different and has been presented in a breezy manner. The first half of this movie is totally hilarious and highly entertaining. There are many rib tickling scenes in this track. The writers, actors and director keep your smile intact in the first half of the film.

'Behen Hogi Teri' shines out mainly due to its amazing dialogues, superb nuances, local dialect, mannerisms and all those minute details. The cinematography by Shamsher Singh manages to keep the mood of the film intact.

'Tera Hoke Rahoon' is melodious and rightly used in the film.The background score is fantastic.

Director Ajay K Pannalal highly succeeds in giving us a simple, entertainer. He keeps the humour quotient intact and extracts some fine performances from a few of his actors.

Rajkummar Rao is highly exceptional in his role. Shruti Haasan look good in some scenes and lends decent support. Darshan Jariwala is outstanding in his part. Ninad Kamat, Herry Tangri and Gulshan Grover lend good support.

The 'Non-Glitz' Factor

The movie slows down drastically in the second half of the film. The pace of the film also keeps dipping at regular intervals. The fun element is restricted and shines only in few scenes. There should have been many more such scenes in the second half of the film. The confusion based comedy starts on an entertaining note, but gets repetitive after a while.

The music of this movie is not that great. The songs are badly placed and abrupt at times. It's just that in order to enhance the story, director ends up losing the basic flavor of the film. The second half fails to do justice to the hilarious first half of the film. The finale track could have been more engaging as well as entertaining.

Shruti Hassan's facial expressions were distracting. Ranjeet is wasted. Gautam Gulati overacts.

Final 'Glitz'

'Behen Hogi Teri' is a clean family based film which will be loved by many on the home video. As for the rest, if you could avoid the weak second half, this is your movie of the week.

Rating: 3 / 5.0
