Veere Di Wedding Movie Review: The eccentric girl-gang’s charm entertains us wholeheartedly!

Veere Di Wedding holds a special place with the makers and the cast because it is Kareena Kapoor Khan's post-pregnancy comeback and Sonam Kapoor's post-marriage first movie. Yes, how time has changed but these Veeres just make us fall irrevocably in love with them. Watch the movie and you'll know what I’m talking about.
Kalindi Puri (Kareena Kapoor Khan), Avni Sharma (Sonam Kapoor Ahuja), Sakshi Soni (Swara Bhasker) and Meera Sood (Shikha Talsania) are forever-kind-of-friends. Together since school, they call themselves Veeres (Brothers) and share a bond like no one else. Moving on 10 years ahead, these four Veees are caught up in their own lives in different parts of the world. They’re faraway but are as much together as they were before. However, the problem begins when Rishabh (Sumeet Vyas) proposes Kalindi for marriage and she confusedly says yes. Wedding ceremonies begin and Kalindi discovers what she really wants. Rest of the story revolves around each of their lives and how they tackle the societal perceptions breaking the stereotypes.
Written by Nidhi Mehra and Mehul Suri, the film brings genuine problems to light but there's one issue, they’re very un-relatable to many out there. There are four parallel tracks running in the film and everything gets tangled to each other after a point of time. “Bahar se sati aur andar se slutty, John ka John, discussions on orgasm, Apna haath jagganath” – the film is divided between good things and a dragging plot. Although, humour has its own time and so does, some bold moments.
Kareena Kapoor Khan a.k.a Bebo is the BEST. She's amazing in every scene and honestly, we missed your grace on-screen. Sonam Kapoor Ahuja manages to have her moments and gets the grip of her character nicely. Swara Bhasker shines from them all! But hats off to Shikha Talsania, who delivered an effortless performance and gets major screen time too. As for, Summet Vyas, he was hilarious!
Director Shashanka Ghosh uses common resources to fulfil is plate. But it's Sudhakar Reddy Yakkanti’s cinematography that fails. He’s the one who hit the ball out of the park with his work in Sairat.
Don't feel heartbroken but Tareefan was missing from the movie. Arijit Dutta’s background score is passable, nothing sensational.
Well, Veere Di Wedding is surely entertaining but in parts. Still it deserves a 6/10 just because of Kareena Kapoor Khan!
