Rabba Main Kya Karoon review: Shaadi, vaadi, pyaar vyaar!

Director

Amrit Sagar

Star Cast

Akash Chopra, Tahira, Arshad Warsi, Shakti Kapoor, Tinnu Anand, Paresh Rawal, Himani Shivpuri

The story is about a shaadi, the plot revolves around the same, the hero-heroine are the dulha-dulhan. Since it?s a Punjabi wedding it has to have all of the following: happy, shiny people in candy-coloured costumes, at least one aunt in purple lipstick called Dolly who must shout out every dialogue (the very talented Himani Shivpuri, in this case), lots of song and dance, and the parents fluttering around worrying about mithai and decorations and other such.

The couple in this case is likeable. We meet the boy (Akash Chopra) in a bare-chested intro scene (typical producer?s son intro). Childhood sweethearts, the boy finally proposes and the girl (Tahira) accepts. All?s swell, till one disgruntled elder brother (Arshad Warsi) arrives on the scene riding a Harley Davidson.

He is disturbed by the fact that his about-to-be-hitched bro is saving his virginity for marriage. Unable to see all this luv-shuv, he attempts at saving his little brother?s marriage. And that?s by giving him tips on how to cheat.

According to him, cheating is in men?s hormones? suppress it and it results in an unhappy marriage. He also says suppressing the need to cheat could lead to maara-maari and other disturbances in the marriage. The simple solution to domestic violence; why didn?t anyone think of this before?

Meanwhile his talks on bhaichaara (men?s code) gets to the groom and he finds himself checking out bikini-clad women (close-ups for the viewer included). He also sings a song where his alter-ego eggs him on to become a ?khula saand?.

Meanwhile big bro wonders if kid bro is not ?normal? (read homosexual) and sets him up with a random girl calling her a ?good experiment?. As things move in this film, this girl is only too happy to ?give the groom a good time? two days before his wedding.

This seems to be the recurring theme of the first half as the viewer has to watch Shakti Kapoor, Tinnu Anand and Paresh Rawal cheat on their wives with women half their age. It?s unintentionally hilarious, if not tragic, to see the senior actors embarrass themselves by playing chick magnets. Anyone heard of ageing gracefully?

One wonders aloud if this is a fantasy film. Indeed all the young women in the film are always completely available and happy to service the men romantically?attractiveness, age and looks regardless. Quite funny, this.

The film is produced by Moti Sagar Productions (the guys behind TV series Ramayana). Amrit Sagar (who made 1971) makes a film that attempts a tired rom-com sub-genre ? the big, fat Punjabi wedding.

There are moments when you do laugh out at Arshad Warsi?s histrionics, and the couple is cute enough for you to cheer them on. Debutant Akash Chopra has potential, despite being rough around the edges. Tahira, who also makes her debut, does well.

Sadly, despite this, the film has limited appeal due to its predictable and old-school story and treatment. Mediocre, at best.

Rating: Two stars
