Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan Movie Review: Over the last three decades, Bollywood has seen many films on gay relationships such as Fire (1996), My Brother Nikhil (2005), Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga (2019), Aligarh (2016), etc. And now Anand L. Rai and T-Series have brought together another film based on gay relationships, Shubh Mangal, which is released in theaters this week.
It is a light-hearted, commercial film slightly different from other gay relationships. Apart from this, Ayushman Khurana seen in the lead role in this film, which itself has now become a brand of hit films. So will Shubh Mangal manage to entertain a more careful audience, or does it fail in its effort? Let’s review.
Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan Movie Review
Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is the story of two more careful men who love each other in the era of Section 377. Aman Tripathi (Jitendra Kumar) is the son of Shankar Tripathi (Gajraj Rao) and Sunaina (Neena Gupta) and lives in Allahabad. Aman works in Delhi and his family is unaware of this, He is a lesbian and lives with Karthik (Ayushmann Khurrana).
Jitendra’s cousin Google (Manvi Gagaru) getting married and Nina asks Aman to come back to attend her wedding. Aman refuses at first but then agrees. Karthik also accompanies him and he meets the entire Tripathi family in the special train Vivah Express.
In the train Aman and Karthik kiss, each other and they feel that no one is watching them. But it is a pity that Shankar sees them doing this and Shankar feels like a shock. But he cannot even tell this to anyone. At the wedding of Google, the entire Tripathi family shocked by seeing Kartik in front of everyone in an amusing marriage.
And seeing this, Google’s husband refuses to marry. Angry, Google runs away. Karthik asked to leave Aman Hai and Shankar’s brother and Google’s father Chaman (Manurishi Chaddha) leave her to Allahabad station. At the railway station, Karthik collides with Google and stops him from ending his life. She tells Karthik that he should not run away and fight for his love. This inspires Karthik and he decides not to win Jitendra but the hearts of the entire Tripathi family.

Hitesh Kevalya’s story is good and has the potential to become a game-changer. But Hitesh Kevalya’s screenplay proves to be a major culprit. He presents very hard-to-digest situations in the process of making situations fun. This auspicious Mars was also present in Savdhan but he maintained a balance there.
While there is no balance in this film. The first half is fine. The film falls apart in the second half. Hitesh Kevalya’s dialogues are quite fun but most of them are overs. It would not be wrong to say that one-liners, which are considered funny, also remove reality from the film.
Hitesh Kevalya’s direction is weak. The film has a number of subplots, but they are not well translated. A large part of the film is about the rift within the family and during this time the gay issue goes on the backseat. Also, he should have been completely successful in two aspects, one being a comedy and the other good message.
But in showing both these aspects properly, they are defeated. Even the initially angled black cauliflower brings laughter, but it turns out to be the biggest weakness in the climax. It gives a bad Dejavu feel of Delhi 6 (2009). The positive aspect of the film is that some scenes are handled in a good way and some scenes really bring tremendous laughter.
The auspicious Mars begins to be more careful on a much finer note, and the black cabbage subplot seems pretty fun. The sequence of Devika (Bhumi Pednekar) brings fun in the film. The scene where Shankar catches lovers red-handed kissing, laughing and laughing. Aman’s love for Kartik among the public, Aman talking to his parents about dopamine and many other things keep the film interested. Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan Movie Review.
Drop-In The Film
The film loses interest after the interval. There are some scenes that should have brought laughter but they do not do this. Apart from this, it becomes very didactic and unrelated. The producers try their best to make things interesting but it does not work.
Surprisingly, Ayushmann Khurrana does not appear in his familiar style. He always plays the role of a victim but in this film, he plays the role of the instigator. And in this, they overcharge a bit. Apart from this, the biggest surprise is that his on-screen presence in the film is quite limited. At the same time, Gajraj Rao’s presence on the screen is more and then Jitendra Kumar and then Ayushmann. Gajraj Rao as always looks great and performs according to the script.
Jitendra Kumar does full justice to his character and his part in the first half brings some great scenes. Neena Gupta is an average. Manurishi Chadha and Sunita Rajwar (Champa) fit into their respective roles. Pankhudi Awasthi (Kusum) is quite funny. Manvi Gagaru brings some laughter. Neeraj Singh (Keshav) is decent. Bhumi Pednekar is inactive while Gopal Dutt (doctor in a train)
The music mixes well with the film. ‘Pyaar Tenu Karada Gabru’ is the best song and the best after that is ‘Are Pyaar Kar Le’ which plays in the end credits of the film. ‘Ooh, La La’ comes at a great turn while ‘Mere Tum Kaafi Ho’ is forgettable. The recreated version of ‘Kya Karte Tha Saajna’ sounds very good, but it has not put to good use. Karan Kulkarni’s background score adds to the strangeness of the film.
Chairman Das’s cinematography is appropriate. Ravi Srivastava’s production design suits the film’s setting. Ankita Jha’s costumes are realistic and Ayushmann’s look is worthy of Tariff. The editing of Ninad Khanolkar is without complaint.
Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan Rating: 4 Stars
Overall, Shubh Mangal makes a good effort to present the more careful homophobia present in our country in an interesting way. At the box office, the film will be able to attract youth in urban areas. However, it will be challenging to mobilize the family audience. The presence of Ayushmann Khurrana can help in increasing the box office collection of the film.
