Rabba Main Kya Karun
by Sanyukta Iyer
Move over the ‘rules of engagement’ and give us something new! Boy-loves-girl, boy-marries-girl, nobody ever wondered how that happened, do they?
Plot: Dilli wali girlfriend
Set in a lavish, Delhi bungalow, the film offers all the melodrama of a Punjabi wedding.
Sahil (Akash Chopra) has it all. He makes a Shah Rukh Khan-DDLJ entry with football in the rain, sings and dances with his girlfriend like Shahid Kapoor in Jab We Met and even troubles his mother-bhabhi-mama-mami like Salman Khan in Hum Aapke Hai Koun.
As he prepares to marry his one true love (Tahira Kochchar), enters bade bhaiya-playboy Shravan (Arshad Warsi) who teaches his younger bro the rules of ‘bhai-chara’ and how to cheat on his future-wife.
Aces: Extended family-walas
Raj Babbar and the mama-chacha clan bring on board old memories from a Rajshri Production. Food is abundant and thus, dinner conversations are fun. How each man in the house is fed up of his wife makes for fun-viewing.
Minuses: Where’s your pick-up line?
Touted to be romantic-comedy, the film lacks basic pick-up lines and raunchy one-liners. Failing to entertain, there is no humorous sequence in the film. Dialogues are not up to the mark and dragging along the lines of Pyaar Ke Side Effects, the ‘five rules to cheat on your wife’ are unconvincing.
The films drags on, with unwanted songs, making it all the more unbearable to keep staring at the lead’s not-so-good-looking face.
Last word: Save yourself the Punjabi torture and take a trip around Paris with the Smurfs, this week.
