      Ankita R Super direction wellmade great acting lovely couple amazing songs melodious voice music shahid amrita miss u Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/24 Full Review Rajnish K One of the best movie for family love. Very good portrait of a beautiful wedding of India and its culture. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 08/24/23 Full Review Audience Member A very beautiful movie which helps people retain faith in arrange marriage 😍 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Watched this film after it was recommended by a friend and seeing the rave reviews from industry 'experts' I though it would be entertaining. First the good: Excellent acting from all the actors, especially the two leads of Amrita and Shahid, and they have good chemistry between them so the scenes feel all the more real. The supporting cast had a lot of screen time which is uncommon in a love story and it wasn't overplayed so kudos to the director and script writer for that. Now the bad, and the reason for my low score. The story itself is weak and played a lot of clichés from classic bollywood films ( any of the scenes where the two have to sneak off to talk as an example, or how quickly the characters change from shyness to comfortable). It had the over the top gratitude of the father of the bride, the benevolence of the much richer father of the groom, the illogical hatred of the aunt over her neice's beauty compared to her daughter and her husband making zero effort to address it. Its a shame because the film could have been so much better, it feels like the script was rushed through and the actors had to do their best with it. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Love story in the most traditional, innocent, and purest sense. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member It was like the Bollywood version of The Notebook. Too gooey for me!
