Sui Dhaaga is the latest installment of Yash Raj Films staring two top notch stars i.e. Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma in lead roles. FIlm is directed by Sharat Katariya who previously directed Dum Laga Ke Haisha which was also a social drama film. Going by the trailers Sui Dhaga looked like a social cause drama and you expect such film to be very strong in writing, direction, performances and dialogues nut Sui Dhaaga fails in all department. You will come out of the cinema thinking why was this film even made.
Film is a story of a couple who sands against society norms and try to depict that rural India has tones of talent and they could have delivered this message in a better way. Film does manage to give it’s message early in the first half but it’s a drag after that. We can understand from the first half that Mauji (Varun Dhawan) and Mamta (Anushka Sharma) want to do something big with needle and thread but story gets stuck after that. Film gets annoying in second half with senseless scenes at many places.
Varun Dhawan has given decent performance whereas Anushka Sharma is average too but both of them don’t suit much to their characters especially Anushka Sharma. Director did try well with the make up of Anushka but still she looks odd on the screen. There are couple of scenes in first half which were well acted by Varun Dhawan but throughout the film you keep asking yourself that why did they make this film. This was so unlike Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan, as stars of such big magnitude don’t suit at all for these character especially Anushka Sharma and you can’t apprehend why they signed up for this film. And only reason that hits you is this that it’s a Yash Raj Film and one can’t say a no to a YRF film in today’s time. Supporting cast was decent especially Mauji’s parents but characterization of other cast members was poor. Performance of characters like Hareleen Bedi (Pooja Sarup) was very irritating.
Script was poor and full of loopholes. Climax was extremely illogical but film had already become extremely vexatious by then that you are just waiting for it to end. First half did have some moments and is comparatively better than second half but it was still not good. Film even lacks with music as you go home with no song in your mind rather you go home irritated after watching such long, dragged and illogical social drama.
Film will manage to see some footfalls over the Weekend thanks to the names of Varun Dhawan, Anushka Sharma and YRF attached to it but it will fall badly post Weekend and will emerge a low grosser at boxoffice in Pakistan.
