Sui Dhaaga - Honest Movie Review

Verdict - "A Heartening Story!"

Starring Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma as a relatable proletariat couple, Sui Dhaaga directed by Sharat Katariya ('Dum Laga Ke Haisha' fame) is an encouraging journey of a small-town couple Mauji, an honest and an innocent hard worker played by Varun Dhawan and Mamta, a serene yet clear-sighted housewife played by the super-talented Anushka Sharma. The storyline explores the ups and downs of the couple's trembling career, family life, and their wholesome relationship as they together go through conflicts and hurdles with the intent to achieve their ultimate goal.

Despite having a few storyline issues, writer-director Sharat Katariya makes sure that this film's heart and emotion are at the right place. His depiction of a simple small-town family, their affections, fights and the treatment that they receive from the upper-class society were all illustrated beautifully through effective heart-wrenching scenes and admirable brief character moments which are delightfully sprinkled all across the film. Also, the overarching theme of the entire movie to work with honesty, determination and love, to follow your heart and chase your dreams was conventional but was portrayed decently on-screen by Katariya as it added that extra layer to the film without it being plain and simple.

Also, the cordial everyday characters were yet another stalwart positives of the film. The mistreated, assiduous, upright character of Mauji is the focal highlight remarkably characterized by Varun Dhawan who I appreciate very much for taking a chance with different roles, unlike his male counterparts. Anushka Sharma, who for the first time in her successful career playing a de-glamorous role (very different from her previous horror outing in 'Pari') impresses once again with her charm, likeable screen-presence and the purity that she brought to her character. But, Raghubir Yadav who is very well known for his impeccable performance in 'Peepli [Live]' and 'Piku' is the MVP of the entire film as an easily frustrated father and a difficult-to-impress old chap.  His quick wits and dialogue delivery brought the much needed comic relief to the film along with his wife (whose name I couldn't find on Wikipedia or IMDb).

However, they're more than a few problems with the film, especially the stakes were not that high and the clinching moments were in my opinion over-dramatized for obvious reasons. Even though not bothersome to any extent the plot was considerably predictable, and the customary climax didn't end the movie on a high note but succeeded by making the audience member leave the theater with a smile.

Overall, similar to Sharat Katariya's previous film 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha', Sui Dhaaga maintains the charming innocent vibe but tells a heartening story with the right amount of emotions and sentiment. Irrespective of several storyline issues, this film impresses and is indeed worth a watch.

My Rating - 3/5 | Grade - B (Worth a Watch!)
