Read the Exclusive Mere Dad Ki Maruti Movie Review
Mere dad ki Maruti is a fun, fast paced movie starring an actor I really, really liked in his first film, Mujhse Fraandship Karoge-Saquib Salim. He looks older of course but is just as cute and vivacious and a joy to watch. I can see an internal bias developing towards this actor and his future films.
|Star-Cast: Saqib Saleem, Rhea Chakraborty, Ram Kapoor|
|Director: Ashima Chibber|
|Producer: Ashish Patil|
|Duration: 1 hr 42 mins|
The movie is set in Chandigarh. Sameer and Gattu are happy go lucky college friends. Sameer’s dad thinks he is a good for nothing In order to try and impress Jasleen aka Jazleen (the Shakira of Chandigarh as she calls herself), he decides to borrow the new Maruti Etios that his dad has bought as a gift for his daughter and son-in-law to give away at her ‘bidai’. He loses the car and a series of crazy twists and turns ensue before the story ends.
The movie is zippy and funny and doesn’t have a dull moment.. Though its essentially about teenagers and peppered with slang the story appeals to everyone. I guess the Punjabi language lends itself to a lot of funny dialogues and they add to the general merriment. The setting is of a wedding and there is a lot of colour to add to the feel good factor of the movie. The sangeet dance by Sameer’s sister was the highlight of the movie for me.
The performances are cool. Saquib I have already spoken about. Prabal Panjabi as Gattu is outstanding and Ram Kapoor as the dad is excellent. He has really let himself go in this role. Rhea Charaborty playing Jazzleen is cute but does not make an impact.
I would recommend this movie for its engaging story line and general light- hearted feel. You will come out smiling and that is enough reason for me to recommend a movie.
Verdict: An engaging story, funny dialogues and good acting make this a fun watch
