With the Coronavirus in place, going to weddings has become a far fetched dream for most of us. In fact, even the newly released movies haven’t been the ones displaying the bright vivid wedding scenarios which could leave you slightly satisfied.
However, Vikrant Massey and Yami Gautam heard all of us and came up with this wedding-themed movie on Netflix with the name Ginny Weds Sunny. The movie has already released on Netflix on October 9, however, it hasn’t been well received by the critics.
As far as I am concerned, I wasn’t expecting too much from the movie anyway, so my disappointment level wasn’t as high as other movie critics out there.
The movie is your typical wedding affair set up in Karol Bagh, Delhi with Yami Gautam aka being the daughter of a matchmaker Shobha Juneja and Vikrant Massey aka Sunny’s father has a hardware shop. Sunny wants to marry only because his father would let him open a restaurant after he gets married. Meanwhile, Ginny doesn’t seem interested in marriage altogether despite all efforts of her mother.
Sunny’s father and Ginny’s mother plot to get the two of them married and involve sunny in the effort to woo Ginny and the story flows thereafter.
I loved Ayesha Raza Mirza as Shobha Juneja, she’s played her part really well. For that matter, even Massey and Gautam have acted well, what falters and slows down the movie is the plot. However, what would you expect from a wedding-themed movie, almost everything ends up being predictable. So, critiquing a movie on the basis of its plotline is stupid because well we’ve seen worse in Dabangg, Happy New Year, Khuda Haafiz etc.
It’s not a movie which you would watch more than once, but it isn’t something which will give you a headache either. If you’re looking to kill time and want to watch something where you don’t have to wrack your brains, this will be a decent watch. There are times where the comic timing is decent enough to make you laugh, don’t watch it with too many expectations, as that may leave you disappointed.
As far as ratings are concerned, I’d give it 3 stars, would have given it more if they hadn’t stretched out the climax that much.
