Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is refreshingly funny and lighthearted in tackling a pertinent topic, till it stops being so and almost succumbs to the same trivializing of the topic it attempts to refrain from. Nevertheless, the message is beautiful, most of.

All said and done, some films take themselves too seriously because of their subject but this one had every scope to do everything differently. It gets stuck in the formula serving nothing close to extraordinary..

Where Khurrana's ability to repeatedly surprise hasn't lost an ounce of its touch, it's the quietly unassuming Jitendra Kumar who rises above the fun and frolic to reiterate the historical decision behind decriminalising Section 377: Love is love..

On the whole, SHUBH MANGAL ZYADA SAAVDHAN is a decent attempt and makes an interesting comment on homophobia which exists in our country. At the box office, it has the chance to work with the urban audiences, especially the youth. However, it will be a ch.

Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan isn’t consistent. The script spends too much time focused on the infighting within Aman’s family instead of staying with the leads. Despite that there is enough to enjoy and appreciate here. It takes a difficult subject and.

At the same time, the chase of love is what Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is all about. Love that could spring between two men Kartik and Aman (Khurrana is good, but Kumar is almost heartbreakingly fragile; full marks to the former for allowing the film to .

All in all, 'SMZS' will give small-town parents the much needed nudge, and maybe, in the distant future, they will have the strength to accept their offsprings for who they are. But, for now, watch it for the performances and the 'chaska' of love, with tw.
