After getting delayed for around two years, Amit Roy’s ‘Running Shaadi’ is all set to hit the screens now. The film stars Amit Sadh, Taapsee Pannu and Arsh Bajwa in the lead roles. The trailer of the film was quite promising that the movie will offer us something that we haven’t seen. But does the film live upto the expectations? Let’s find out here in the ‘Running Shaadi’ movie review.
So, the film starts with a love story between Bharose (Amit) and Nimmi (Taapsee). The former works in the shop owned by the latter’s father. But after dating for few months, due some circumstances, the two breakup, and Bharose also leaves his job. One day he and his friend, Cyberjeet (Arsh Bajwa) go for a wedding. The bride runs away, but then later her family finds her and her boyfriend and takes her back. After seeing this, Bharose gets an idea of a business to make people run with a proper planning and get them married. Bharose and Cyberjeet start a website named Runningshaadi.com. Their business is going quite well. But, one day a twist comes when Nimmi requests Bharose to help her in running with her boyfriend Shunty. Nimmi and Shunty’s wedding is going to be the 50th wedding for Runningshaadi.com. However, something very surprising happens. The big twist in the tale. Well, don’t worry we’re giving no spoilers here. What the twist is and how the story moves forward, for that you need to watch the film.
The concept of the film is excellent. Like just imagine, a website that helps you elope and get married to the person you love. But then we hope the writers had concentrated on building up this concept instead of making this one a light-hearted love story. The story is not at all similar to ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ as some of us thought after watching the trailer. But the handling of the film is kind of same. In the second half, the film concentrates on the personal life of the owners of the business. Even in the first half there are a few scenes that are dull. Amit Roy’s narration is decent, but he being one of the writers could have focused more on Runningshaadi.com, than the love story of Bharose and Nimmi. One more thing that irritates a little is the censoring of the word ‘.com’. They have beeped the word, but while a character mouths it, his lips also get blurred and that was like a disturbance in the film. But well, don’t be disappointed as this film will entertain you nevertheless. The writers have very well kept moments that will make you laugh out loud.

We have heard about a lot of wars that took place in the history of India. But, we actually had no idea about a war that took place under the sea, a war which we will now get to witness on the big screen. From the first poster itself, ‘The Ghazi Attack’ made us curious to know what it is all about. The trailer and the promos were so engaging that we couldn’t wait to watch the film. So, was it worth the wait? Check it out in ‘The Ghazi Attack’ movie review here…
The movie starts with the partition of East Pakistan and West Pakistan. The officers of West Pakistan want to send some basic necessity materials to their soldiers in East Pakistan. But they have to cross the Indian waters to reach there. Their only concern is INS Vikrant, an aircraft carrier of the Indian Navy. So they decide to destroy it with the help of PNS Ghazi. On the other hand, Indian Naval officers come to know about the plan set by the Pakistanis. They send a submarine, S 21 for a search mission. Officers, Captain Ranvijay Singh (Kay Kay Menon), Lt Commander Arjun Varma (Rana Daggubati), and Executive officer Devraj (Atul Kulkarni) take the lead in S 21. How this search mission turns into a war, forms the rest of the story.
In the beginning itself, there’s a disclaimer that the film is based on real incidents but it has been fictionalised and cinematic liberty has been taken. But, let’s just forget about this disclaimer and concentrate on how brilliantly the film has been written and executed. What really impresses us is that without wasting any time, the movie just goes on point and from first scene itself it keeps us engaged. There are some really powerful moments that will keep you on the edge of the seat. Believe us, there were sequences that actually made our heart pump a bit faster. In such films, editing plays a very important part and A Sreekar Prasad has done that wonderfully. Madhi’s cinematography is also excellent. Not to forget, the visual effects in the film are superb. While watching the film you will surely feel why this film wasn’t made in 3D.
