'Marvelous', 'fantabulous' and what else, put your best words of appraisals for Director Kaushik Ghata. Amidst, corporate companies and Hollywood's top-charting production houses churning out their extravaganzas in Bollywood, Rajshri Productions enriches with simplistic beauteous themes straight from its shoulders. 'An oasis amidst of large deserts' - Of course, Ek Vivaah Aisa Bhi deserves it for a poignantly crafted tale by Suraj Bharjatiya and Kaushik Ghatak's perfect direction.
Possibly, with changing phase of genres in Bollywood, one may not opt for PURE DRAMRA. Uh-huh! Multiplex audiences may not choose this flick, as they have plenty of good releases hitting screens recently. Obviously, it's hard to choose the best out of bests as Tom Hanks says it in Forrest Gump - My Mamma used to say 'Life is a box of chocolates, you don't know what you're gonna pick'. Fine, it could be a difficult task in opting one best out of all recent releases.
Producers brimmed up with perfect knacks have hit bull's eyes. Everyone could've have felt it odd with makers releasing this flick with just 80prints and in single screens. Undoubtedly, audiences zeroing down on single-screens will love watching this film. For sure, producers should've opted for 'Slow & steady wins the race'.
Best in its theme, Rajshri haven't failed in bringing to us, best wedlocks on screen in their previous films and Ek Vivaah Aisa Bhi is not an elision. Hymeneals, gala celebrations of marriage ceremonies have been spelled... Don't miss the concentric aspects of heart-binding emotions and splendid plotline.
Sacrifices for love portrayed would melt everyone's senses and overall it's a decent family entertainer.
Chandni (Eesha Koppikar) belongs to a middle class family; living in one of the tiny by lanes of old Bhopal. She lives with her father and younger siblings- Anuj and Sandhya. Chandni, who is deeply attached to her school going brother and sister, is trained in classical and folk music. During a stage performance she falls in love with Prem (Sonu Sood)..
Prem hails from a rich family. He is an un conventional Ghazal singer full of mischief and pranks..
Life is picture perfect ...until on the day of engagement Chandni's father passes away...suddenly she becomes the eldest in her family. On one hand her 'Mehendi' adorned hands are beckoning her to the dream home of her fiancé and on the other hand are her younger siblings, whom she cannot take along with her. Chandni decides not to marry so that she can bring up her little brother and sister with respect.
Prem understands her and stands by her through thick and thin as she goes through her struggle. He unconditionally waits for Chandni for 12 long years until she fulfill all her responsibilities as an elder sister.
'Truly...sometimes the greatest love stories are .... the ones that stand the test of time.'
Doubtless, taglines picked for promos don't dash down your hopes and debutant Kaushik Ghatak strides winning accolades. Lots of his elbow greases get revealed with the exquisite filming of best moments through the entire show. Perhaps, lack of pace in first few minutes may put down your interests... Nevertheless, the scenario transcends with solidity in screenplay and actors breathing lives on characters. Better don't forget your hankies; certain scenes would soak your eyes with tears rolling down on cheeks.
Nothing to blame on star-casts; their flawless top-notched performance strikes straight into your hearts. They are sure to remain undiminished post-the-show. Sonu Sood brims up with an over-the-top act. Be it his gestures or facial expression, he looks full-blown from his previous hits Jodha Akbar, Singh is King. Ditto to Eesha Koppikar; she steals the show with her chasteness adding strength to emotional ratios. Alok Nath, Vallabh Vyas and Smitha come up with laudable performance while Vishal Malhotra exceeds your expectations.
Better it would've been, if Kaushik and Sooraj had their focus on technical panoramas. Except couple of songs inclusive of 'Mujhme Zinda Hai Woh', nothing works out magic especially in first half. Sashi and Sumit make the film more resplendent penning dialogues and they deserve special mention.
Ek Vivvah... Aisa Bhi is perfect in all vistas savoring to the tastes of audiences. Indeed, it's worthy carrying credits of 'One of the year's best family entertainer'. There aren't any letdowns from Rajshri Productions and hats off to entire team...
Verdict: Worth watching... Don't miss it.
