Band Baaja Barat: Neither slick, nor grand

Management Guru Arindam Chaudhuri Dean Business School IIPM

The Worst Laid Plans

"Band Baaja Barat" (BBB)Band Baaja Barat had the set up to be a well crafted rom-com directed by Maneesh Sharma as a complete family entertainer and would have lived up to those expectations if it had not bungled up on technicalities. Apart from the slight disconnect, abrupt love making scenes and distastefully done smooching sequences, the story BBB dishes out is an interesting one about Shruti Kakkar (Anushka Sharma) aspires to become a wedding planner. Bittoo Sharma (Ranveer Singh) is a laid back lad from Haryana, who passes out of Delhi University and is now desperate to get away from his family business of sugarcane farming. Luckily, he falls for Shruti and soon makes friends with her and convinces her to make him her partner in the big fat wedding planning business called ‘Shaadi Mubarak’. Shruti makes it a point not to mix business with pleasure and plays by her rule book and is ‘just friends’ with Bittoo. But soon that goes for a toss as the proximity between the duo increases and the equation becomes more relaxed once they rejoice after each successful event. How the duo ends up in bed and how things unfold in the second half lacks subtlety and class. Ranveer looks promising being a debutant and Anushka does justice to her role as well. The music by Salim Suleiman, especially the “Ainveyi Ainveyi” number is a peppy one and adds a little dash of flavour of this rather half cooked platter. A slight attention to detail and trivial tweaking would have made BBB delight. But the planning’s gone a bit awry.
