After a long-term lockdown, Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari is one of the most entertaining and comedy films. It is a family movie, with no vulgarity or nudity and a movie with a clean concept.
Manoj Bajpayee, Diljit Dosanjh, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Annu Kapoor, Manoj Pahwa and the entire cast in whole has performed marvellously. The character played by Diljit Dosanjh’s friend, Sukhi, in the film has also marked an outstanding position. Vijay Raaz’s even though did not share the screen for a longer duration, made a cameo and yet his role was up to the mark that would definitely leave the audience laughing their heart out.
The film exhibits a set up of 1995, Madhu Mangal Rane (Manoj Bajpayee) who plays the character of a wedding detective, who checks the background of grooms and informs the bride’s family in case he finds any defect in the groom. This thread continues when Suraj Singh Dhillon (Diljit Dosanjh) comes as his next target. Suraj had always been a noble man, but however, getting under the influence of his dear friend, he decides to be the typical “bad boy” of Bollywood. It is that one time when Rane catches him off-guard due to which Dhillon his left without a bride. As the thread goes along, Dhillon being frustrated finally decides to get hold of the one due to whom his marriage was being declared off every single time. It was when Dhillon robbing a house, he got to know that it was Rane due to whom his marriage life had not yet taken off. In the process, he crosses path with Fatima Sana Shaikh, where their eyes collide which further leads to a love story between them.
However, just like the other typical Bollywood films, Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari also has a usual comic movie ending with as of DDLJ. The film did not justify the comic talent of Annu Kapoor. On the other hand, Diljit Dosanjh even though had quite a many comic scene, he was not able to completely embrace it. Seema Pahwa was also not presented in completely appealing manner and with not much strong dialogues. The potential of the cast was not completely justified in the film.
The music, song and dance elements of the film were set to the point keeping in mind the old times. However, the item song in the film is entertaining and worth appreciating Screenplay and direction of this film is up to the mark.
Cinespeaks Verdict: An entertaining comedy film with a great star cast, appealing screenplay and direction with some perfect blend of music is definitely a one time watch with family.
