Ginny Weds Sunny, starring Yami Gautam and Vikrant Massey will attract you with bright colours, Punjabi dhol beats and flawless performances by its leading pair but 45 mins into the film and you will start thinking of excuses to skip this wedding.
Vikrant Massey as Sunny is a 'desperate to marry' young lad of a Punjabi khandaan. He has a secret crush on Ginny (Yami Gautam)- daughter of a matchmaker- since his school days but Ginny is still in love with her ex-boyfriend Nishant. Are you already yawning?
One fine day, the matchmaker, played by Ayesha Raza Mishra, spots Sunny as the perfect match for her rebellious daughter, who wants to only opt for a love marriage. She then guides Sunny to win Ginny's heart, while she is still stuck up on her ex-boyfriend, who she refers to as 'confusion.'
The movie is filled with cheesy dialogues, senseless scenes and absolutely bad writing. It's like a bumpy ride which often leaves you questioning what's been shown to you on the screen.
Performances are flawless and both- Vikrant and Yami have put in sincere efforts to fit into their characters, which were a bit out of their comfort zones.
Yami once again breaks from her sweet and soft girl image. I loved the way she delivered a monologue in Haryanvi. The Kaabil actress is looking pretty and has a good screen presence.
Vikrant too takes up a challenge by playing a loud Punjabi boy, who is seen dancing and maaroing cheesy lines, quite unlike his previous roles. His character sketch seemed a bit confusing and I feel it could have been written far more strongly, especially when the director had a powerhouse like Vikrant. The actor did justice to what was given to him but unfortunately it ended up as a case of wasted talent.
The look and feel of the film is great. I loved Yami's styling and Vikrant too pulls off his layered shirt looks well. There was richness in each frame and the colour pallete was bright.
Overall, it's a badly written film with a cliche story but good performances. I will suggest taking a rain check from this wedding. Ginny Weds Sunny is blahworthy and I'd give it 2 stars.
