Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana Reviews

Shubhra Gupta
Indian Express


The plot looks straight out of the 80s, with its implausible 'revenge' theme, the characters who look 'seedha' but are totally 'ulta', and a leading lady who is presented as a modern, thinking girl, but is given very little agency or a mind of her own.

So while the film gets you chuckling at times, it disappoints you for being a mixture of familiar works and for not justifying the issues it supposedly deals with. Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana is an invite that you may decline or attend without a gift perhaps.

Sweta Kaushal
Hindustan Times


The film, however, leans too much on clichés. Songs are abrupt and obstruct the narrative. The filmmakers have also relied heavily on melodrama but despite these minor hiccups, this is an invitation you must not miss.

Rohit Bhatnagar
Deccan Chronicle


Shaadi Main Zaroor Aana is strictly enjoyable only in parts. Don't expect it to be an interesting affair as it might give you a headache in the second half.


If I had to summarise the film in one sentence, it would be, 'Is shaadi mein mat jaana (Don't attend this wedding)!'

Renuka Vyavahare
Times Of India


The film could have been much better than it eventually turns out to be. But if you don't mind watching a modest family drama, reminiscent of the 90s, you won't mind being privy to this emotional alliance.

Appearances are deceptive in “Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana” (Please Come to the Wedding). In the beginning, our hero appears to be a likeable, if excitable, young man, consumed by the thought of marital bliss. But as the story progresses, he turns "full retard". So does the film.

Meena Iyer
DNA India


All in all, it’s a film that had potential to be a sweet love story. However, this one doesn’t quite get there because it’s not passionate enough on any count—be it in its social messaging--or be it in the romance.


In an attempt to propagate the message of 'family-first', the movie employs misconceptions and stereotypes, making it impossible to engage with the lead characters. Yet, the duo stands out. Rao, as is now usual, sinks his teeth into his character.

A mash up of Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Bareilly Ki Barfi, Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana is one romantic drama that even Rajkummar Rao’s reliable performance cannot rescue.

Manisha Lakhe


Films based in small Northern towns that deal with dowry and squashed ambitions of daughters are a trope done to death. Along comes another with Rajkummar Rao as hero. Just because he's had a spate of successes, does not mean he will carry this shaadi ka dead horse alone on his shoulders. Everybody tries hard, but the melodramatic treatment makes this film a terrible watch

Overall a not to miss flick if you are a Rajkummar Rao fan as the film doesn't disappoint you at any point. It just backs a bit melodrama to stretch the film further until the end but yes take this impressive invitation, 'Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana.'

    Things travel at the speed of light in Ratnaa Sinha's debut film, Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana, a romantic drama that daringly goes haywire in the second half. The chemistry between the talented Rajkummar Rao and Kriti Kharbanda, at her shimmering best, is palpable, but it is the revenge elements in the second half that is unbearable. In addition to lack of logic or credibility in the plot, director Sinha makes her characters do ugly things just because she wants the whole shindig to look intense. Of course, the sequences are intense enough to put you in a state of numbness, and the story does chafe few stark social issues like dowry and gender discrimination to stay relevant, but all that Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana manages to pull off is an annoying revenge drama that is just too sour to consume. The second half becomes highly annoying as you see one illogical sequence after another to a point of a cringe-worthy climax that will make you puke. The film is a pleasure to watch in the start but once you complete the first 40 minutes, it starts to throw bombs of drivel at you that never stop and does not even address the problem that gave rise to the revenge arc. Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana is like a romantic Hindi TV soap opera (possibly in Life OK channel) whose title does not make sense and the main story involves an inaccessible revenge drama. TN.

    Warning::::This review of shadi me jarur aana has full of spoilers ahead😜😜😜😜😜😜::::::
    Sattu(raj kumar Rao) is a govt clerk...aarti(Kriti kharbanda) is a pcs aspirant..meets each other in an arranged marriage setup...likes each other..dahej gets fixed...all set for the d-day..happy go lucky...just on the marriage night,bride gets the news of her selection in pcs as well as her in-laws reservation against her working after marriage...wow...what a coincidence...all hell breaks loose...she decides to run away so that she could give herself the wings to fly...groom arrives..shattered in pieces..full of angst...decides to take revenge ...and no prize for guessing how???............
    He becomes IAS...uff...Aaj pata chala..IAS banne ke lie dil Ka tootna jaroori hai....bekar me log Mukherji Nagar me pade hue hain....pyar karlein,time bhi bachega Aur paisa bhi (pun seriously not intended)...ohk get back to their revenge saga..In the meantime she gets accused in some corruption cases..and as the fate has it..he becomes the investigating officer and then starts Rona dhona,sweet melodrama and as again the fate has it...aakhir me sattu Aur Aarti ki shadi ho jati hai...wow...

    This flick starts on a good note involving dowary and women empowerment but over the course these gets undermined and commercialism takes over the offbeat drama...in first half it gets go nice but post interval it is bevajaha stretched and the essence gets lost in writing...in acting department,each and every actor performs well but raj kumar Rao is outstanding...his transformation from a seedha saada clerk to stern and revengeful IAS is awsom.....having all said,it is still watchable for stellar cast,brilliant acting and feel happy mode..if u are not busy, u can have ur hands on this shadi...
