Veere Di Wedding Movie Review: more than a Chick Flick

Veere Di Wedding Movie Review: more than a Chick Flick

Produced by Ekta Kapoor and directed by Shashanka Ghosh, “Veere Di Wedding” hit the screens this last weekend. Starring Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania, this movie is definitely more than just 4 friends hanging out, chugging alcohol and spitting out cuss words, all the while being their best fashionable selves.

The movie can be considered quite inclusive; it has something for the straight, the not-so-straight, the married, the single, the to-be-divorced, the slim as well as the not-so-slim. All the character types fit in well to grip the viewers throughout the film.

The plot revolves around the marriage of Kalindi (Kareena) to her beau Rushabh (Sumeet Vyas). Kalindi invites her childhood friends to the wedding, resulting in the madness-filled wedding days and a surprising aftermath.

The lead characters Kalindi, Avni, Sakshi and Meera are interestingly written characters, each actress adding her own unique style to the portrayal of their respective characters. Despite Kareena-Sonam being big stars, the screen space has been shared equally by all the actresses and each character stands out in its own glory. There is comedy and drama, and yet, the movie maintains a balance between the two. While some have criticized Kareena for being too classy for the role, others have criticized the movie for being predictable.

However, the beauty of the film lies in the fact that one can empathize with the characters and their problems. In all, it is the perfect Girl’s Day Out film!

Actress Lisa Haydon, will be seen in the music video ‘Tempted to touch’ by DJ-producer Zaeden. Sabik Sharma who goes by the stage name Zaeden has made an audio for the official remake of the 2004 track ‘Tempted to touch,’ by Rupee.

This track has been on my playlist since I was a teenager making music out of my bedroom. Rupee and his team trusted in my vision so I started working on the track almost three years ago. Rupee is also expected to visit India around the same time. The release of the video is expected to be on 26 June on Spinnin’ TV”,,” said Zaeden.

Rupee is still humbled by the success of this song and said “It has become an immortal classic. Zaeden and his team’s energy, humility, insight and spirit definitely struck a positive chord with me and I echoed these sentiments to my team. After a lot of hard work from both the parties, we are blessed to have finally reached a destination of incredible musical ingredients, added to a working formula.”

When Lisa Haydon was asked about the music video she said “Zaeden is truly in touch with pop culture today. And that is reflective in this classic remake which made it an obvious choice to want to collaborate on the video with him and his team. It’s rare to work with creative that are so open to everyone bringing their POV to the table and yet maintaining their own individuality and signature style. It’s an amazing track!”

We have to wait and see if Lisa does justice to the song.

I’ve been working too hard for too long. There is a lot in the pipeline and lot of new exciting projects, which I will talk about soon. The reality right now is that I have worked very hard and I love what I do. I just need some time off and I promise you that I will be entertaining you again, as that is what I thrive on,” said Kapil.
