An effort of spreading crucial message to challenge homophobia in Indian society: Shubh Mangal Zyada
Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan directed by Hitesh Kewalya brings back the old cast of Badhaai Ho with nee additions and makes another laughter riot. Ayushmann Khurrana spreada his magical charm on the screen while portraying a ruthless Delhi lad who's gay. His love interest Amit Tripathi portrayed by Jitendra Kumar is also a gay but trapped with his family. The story revolves around the coming out process of a gay person which is hilariously displayed on the screen by the Director.
The film not only challenges the problem of homophobia in our Indian society, but also breaks many stereotypes revolving in our society. The story highlights majorly the contrasting concepts of marriage that our society has created. As far as acting is concerned, the cast is too good and new actor Jitendra Kumar certainly looks a promising addition to Indian film industry. Neena Gupta and Gajendra Rao add the fun and charm to the film with their super cute portrayal of Indian parents.
The storyline is definitely an eye-opener for us as a society as it defines the struggles that many LGBTQ face in their daily life and as the brilliant Ayushmann Khurrana's dialogue also mentions that the struggle of a gay person with their family is the biggest challenge in their lives. The film is funny, hilarious and a must watch for all. The best part is that you can enjoy watching the film while sitting in the same hall with the attendance of many LGBTQ members which changes the history of cinema and works as a changemaker for the Indian society.
The music given by Tanishk Bagchi, Karan Kulkarni and Tony Kakkar sets with the theme of the film. The cinematography is average because of the realistic storyline and locations. IMDb rating for Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is 7/10 and The Show Time rates this film with 8.5/10 rating. The film is not a perfect 10 but the way it has seeped in the message in our hearts has no rating whatsoever.
