If I haven't said it all in my title, then here is exactly what I felt about the film.
As the firebrand four say it often in their lines, let me also say it in context of the makers: It needs balls to make such a film. I am not a sucker for films where the F word is used, but here its usage (mind you, frequent) did not make me cringe even a wee bit. It just goes with the flow, it's required, in fact, many times you say it under your breath even before Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar or Shikha Talsani utter it.
They talk about the frequency of sex they have with their partners. They talk of one-night stands. They talk of condoms, even when they are in school. They talk of body-shaming. They talk of weight issues... They talk of everything under the sun- and it is not for the heck of titillation.
Veere Di Wedding is pure celebration of life. And mind you in this entire celebration of friendship, there are so many lessons you learn, or, at least get reminded about: a) You live only once, don't f*** your life. b) Children should confide in their parents to make their life smooth. c) Parents are also responsible for their children's deviant behaviour. d) Marriage is a bed of compromises and sacrifices. e) Ostentatious revelry can be done away with, don't fake it.
Over to the Veeres.
Welcome back, Kareena. Bollywood was poorer without you. We want to see you doing lot more movies now. Kapoor genes continue to flow, making every expression count.
Sonam is the real definition of 'growth in an actor'; she is now always being better than she was in her preceding one. This girl has a very warm, pleasing smile, wonder why we only talk about her beauty and clothes.
Swara is astounding. Should I use that line... it needed b.... to carry out this role? Mind you, she is a kick-ass actress and would you believe it if I tell you that she carries out a self-gratification scene for a full 15 seconds without making you say 'F***, why this?'
The big surprise is Shikha. Freestyle acting at its best, so natural, so not conscious before the camera.
Watch how each one of them carries off every costume she dons. Watch and make out how each one of them has had a ball while shooting the film. Watch and realise how much the filmmakers have believed in the film.
Sumit Vyas, who unexpectedly, has good amount of screen time, deserves a pat for holding his own.
Like always, I won't dwell on the story. Anyway, it has quite a few twists and turns.
I am going with FOUR.
