Running Shaadi Reviews
Overall, despite few hiccups, the entire good vibe and vibrant nature of Running Shaadi makes it a worthy watch this weekend. Just go for this easy-breezy film and come out with a smile or a plan of elopement during a wedding.
Despite a novel idea and a fresh pairing in Taapsee Pannu and Amit Sadh, this film fails to engage you.
Director Amit Roy may have unnecessarily stretched the film to 114 minutes. Running Shaadi has its moments, but they are too few to keep you engrossed.
‘Running Shaadi’ can be seen over this weekend as the film will be a perfect outing with your entire family.
Running Shaadi with the tackily beeped out dot.com gets 1 star, while Brijendra Kala (who plays Sadh's maternal uncle) and Jha add half a star more.
Taapsee Pannu and Amit Sadh's romantic comedy could have been a laugh riot had it been half aware of where it was headed. It is let down by blotchy writing, is a pointless crawl
The performance of the leading pair doesn’t impress either. Sadh has a perpetual scowl on his face, and Pannu’s attempt at playing the gregarious Punjabi girl falls flat. This “shaadi” should have never happened.
While there may not be much of a Shaadi, there's definitely a lot of fun running around that you may want to check out.
Running Shaadi is a breezy entertainer in parts. Taapsee does a good job as the spunky girl. Those with a taste for romantic films with a hint of comedy will enjoy it.
Running Shaadi on paper seems trite, but it is consistently engaging because newer and wilder plot developments get thrown at you (Roy is also the writer) and you cannot help but continue to run with its characters to find out what eventually becomes of them.
Running Shaadi could’ve really been a different comedy. It had the raw potential of a unique and innovative film. But the lackof focussed direction leaves it high and dry.
Going by the plot and theme RUNNING SHAADI could have been a humourous take on the wedding and love scenes in India and the expose of the dangers of social media and pros and cons of marriage portals but it ends up as a waste opportunity.
This is a rom.com with a dot between the ‘rom’ and ‘com’ reminding us that the traditional romantic comedy has come a long way.And dot’s the whole truth.
Running Shaadi would be a great short story, or a short film. As a full length feature, it is entertaining only in parts.
Ram Bharose from Patna works for a clothing store in Amritsar and is in love with the boss' daughter Nimmi. Insulted at her birthday party, he quits and begins a startup with his geeky Sardar friend 'Running Shaadi' for runaway couples. Everything works fine until Nimmi decides she want to run away. With Ram Bharose. The supporting cast is stellar, the situations and dialogue are funny, but the lead cast is pathetic. And that makes you wish the film weren't that long.
With so many serious and hard-hitting films that have come up recently, this would be a light hearted comedy to have a relaxed weekend. Apart from that, wouldn’t really recommend it.
