Wedding Anniversary Movie Review

What Is It About :

The wife Kahani plans a special surprise for her husband Nirbhay as they plan to celebrate their First Wedding Anniversary in Goa, the place where they had met for the first time and had fallen in love. However, destiny has other plans which unfolds in this romantic tale…

Review : It was a pleasant surprise that a Love Guru Nagarjun (Nana Patekar)  comes out of a book, as he is the author, to help a married woman Kahani (Mahie Gill) rediscover herself as she indulges in the story and thus find solutions to her concerns in her married life.

Kahani is excited to celebrate her First Wedding Anniversary with her husband Nirbhay (Priyanshu Chatterjee in a special appearance) in Goa and she waits for him. However, Nirbhay due to an important business meeting  is not able to arrive on time and Kahani is very upset about that. What follows is that she falls asleep while reading a book and when the doorbell rings she is surprised to find a stranger who turns out to be the author of the book she was reading, Nagarjun.

The dream sequence is a journey of  love and passion through the medium of various discussions where Nagarjun as the love guru attempts to show Kahani the reflection of her life. This even involves a journey traversing the lives of various couples through their eyes and thus Nagarjun makes her realize that it’s imperative to understand her husband first and vice versa.

What’s Hot : Nana Patekar as Nagarjun plays his role with eloquence and is a marvel to watch as he mouths his poetry in Hindi and Urdu with unparalled adroitness and fluidity. Mahie looks gorgeous as the wife as she plays her part well. The characters also leave a lasting impression in our minds. The Director Shekhar S Jha has done a commendable job .The Music Director Abhishek Ray has packaged the diverse songs beautifully like a bouquet.

What’s Not : There are many people who might get bored with the monologues of Nana Patekar but it is rare to see such a masterpiece on celluloid as it has an artistic flavour. Most of the people or critics might argue that she must visit a marriage counsellor and not try to find solutions through a Love Guru who is the author of a book she reads.

Final Verdict : Overall, Wedding Anniversary movie is worth a watch if you have fallen in love at any time of your life. It even serves as a soothing relief as it explores  a unique cinematic experience never witnessed before in Bollywood !
