Shubh Mangal Saavdhan Review: A Joy Ride That Limps Towards The End

A couple in love, the trappings of a middle-class family, and a conflict in the path of their romantic union – this genre (slice-of-life films if one must label it) was artfully presented by directors like Sai Paranjpye, Basu Chatterjee and Hrishikesh Mukherjee.You get that from Queen, Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Tanu Weds Manu, and you almost get it from RS Prasanna’s Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, a remake of the Tamil film, Kalyana Samayal Saadham.
