Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan | No Rating Movie Review | Ayushmann Khurrana | Jitendra Kumar | Neena Gupta | Gajraj Rao
Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan talks about a serious subject but gives it a lighter treatment. Touted to be a quirky take on same-sex love, the film traces the journey and struggle of a gay couple — Aman Tripathi and Kartik Singh played by Jitendra Kumar and Ayushmann Khurrana respectively. The film takes on homophobia, and not homosexuality. It showcases the reluctance of the family to embrace their son’s sexuality and instead, be in denial. Aman and Kartik are a happy gay couple living together in Delhi. Back in Allahabad, Aman’s parents are oblivious to his sexual preference and are trying to set him up with Kusum played by Pankhuri Awasthy. It’s during a train journey for a wedding that Tripathi family gets to know of Aman and Kartik’s relationship. Rest of the film is about them convincing the family, breaking stereotypes and working towards a ‘happy ending’ they feel they deserve. Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is an important film about an important subject conveyed in the simplest way. It’s absolutely a family entertainer.
