Movie : Sui Dhaaga
Director : Sharat Katariya
Rating : 4/5
Sharat Katariya has his own school of cinema which takes you back to the roots of India showing the real India with his films one after the another. After impressing us massively with Dum Laga Ke Haisha, he is back with Sui Dhaaga which stars Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma along with seasoned actors like Raghubir Yadav, Abha Parmar, Namit Das etc. The film which takes you to the roots of India and shows us the life’s joy & struggles of beautifully written earthy characters and inspires at the go. It starts with telling the endearing story of Mauji (Varun Dhawan) and Mamta (Anushka Sharma) who are married to each other in a small village who live with Mauji’s parents played by Raghubir Yadav and Abha Parmar. Mauji is a simple man who has dreams in life to do something big but has a limited thinking and is in the ‘Sab Badhiya Hai’ phase of his life where he is okay with how life is going even if it is full of humiliation and mocking. On the other hand, Mamta who is a dedicated wife and daughter-in-law doesn’t like how his husband is treated by the people under whom he is working and tries her best to evoke the feelings of self-respect inside him.
Learning from his mistakes, Mauji leaves his job and starts to do something of his own with the help and constant support of Mamta. He tries his best to become big in life and garner respect amidst the society and for his father going through many struggles and hardships which are equally shared by Mamta. He travels by the bus to save money for the bus-ticket and sacrifice other things but maintains that his self-worth is not harmed anymore.
The best aspects of the film are it’s simplistic story-telling, earthy & endearing dialogues, honest and earnest performances by the whole cast and most importantly it’s length. The movie is just around 2 hours and swifts with pace which is super enjoyable. Also, the additional supporting cast fit like a glove to the film’s packaging where Raghubir and Abha do wonders and make us a bigger fan of them. The film will make you smile, laugh, cry and most importantly smile all at the same time. Brownie points goes to the music and the background score which works perfectly for the film which is given by the maverick Anu Malik. Also, the film doesn’t have a melodramatic climax like most of the films and yet is super effective despite having zero monologues.
Beautifully scripted & directed by Sharat Katariya, Sui Dhaaga is entertaining, emotional and away from the loopholes of Bollywood cinema. Sharad’s direction is crisp and sharp and he proves that he is here to stay. Coming to the performances, Varun as Mauji has given us yet another endearing & adorable performance after October where he played Dan with equal conviction showing the range of his enigmatic acting. He still remains the most exciting actor from this youngest creed of actors. Anushka Sharma as Mamta is the surprise package of the film who proves that despite being utterly urban, she can pull off rural characters with aplomb. She is lovable and inspiring as Mamta and scores as an actor almost in every scene. Not to forget, Raghubir and Abha along with Namit Das and Govind Pandey add a lot of depth in the film.
Thank you for this gem, Sharat. Sab Badhiya Hai actually! take a bow Team Sui Dhaaga.
