Sui Dhaaga: Varun Dhawan, Anushka Sharma

Rating: Good

Sui Dhaaga Story: Egged by his better half Mamta (Anushka Sharma), Mauji (Varun Dhawan) chooses to ditch his boss for his own tailoring business. In any case, in the midst of naysayers, corrupt relatives and absence of help, will his fantasy of transforming into a business person turn into a reality?

Sui Dhaaga Review: “Sab badhiya hai,” is Mauji’s reaction to day by day battles for a mediocre existence. In them, is a problematic job, an angry dad, a feeble mother and a marriage sans romance, and all this is something that makes his life a ruckus. Following an exceptionally amazing angry scene with his boss, Mauji quits to start something of his own. Sui Dhaaga is loaded with such subtle struggles and their solutions that are consistently woven into the account.

The film revolves around a bunch of characters. While Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma perform just in the sublime manner, one would expect them to; Their costumes, the setup and other characters too, take things up a notch. Together their romance is understated to the point of being non-existent, but that doesn’t take away from their partnership as a couple while fighting the odds in life.

Among the supporting cast, Raghubir Yadav is right on target as a skeptical dad, taunting his son with sarcastic jokes, that will actually make you laugh. Yet, the performing artist to keep an eye out for is Yamini Dass, who plays Mauji’s mom. She legitimizes each moment of her screen-time and is the lovable character who anyone would prefer to watch.

Director Sharat Katariya moves you with this cinematic experience through the storyline and the way the film has been shot. In a triumphant first half, he effectively sets up his primary characters and their issues. Smart usage of humour in dialogues ups the entertainment quotient, even when the going gets tough for the characters. The songs in the movie lend gravitas to the story. While the narrative doesn’t get too preachy or predictable, the second half is simply convenient.

It’s a must watch for the audience as the relatable factor too plays a major role here!
