Band Baaja Baraat Review

The girl is strong-minded, unwavering and focused. The boy has no aspirations in life and is typically interested in having a ball. Two conflicting characters. Band Baaja Baaraat parks its plot within the 'opposites attract' blueprint, a theme common to numerous rom-coms. These two characters are poles apart, diametrically opposite and therefore mismatched. But they end up falling in love with each other.

There's talk that Band Baaja Baaraat borrows heavily from The Wedding Planner. Perhaps, the allegation germinated because The Wedding Planner and Band Baaja Baaraat talk of wedding planners. However, The Wedding Planner dealt with a female wedding planner falling in love with the bride groom, while Band Baaja Baaraat tells the story of two youngsters who start a wedding planning business and who eventually fall in love. Sure, the background setting of the two films is slightly similar, but the stories are as diverse as oranges and apples.

Band Baaja Baaraat rests on two actors - a two-film-old actress [Anushka Sharma] and a rank newcomer [Ranveer Singh]. It's a major task undeniably. They have to deliver, they have to keep the viewer's interest alive, they have to make the goings-on look convincing. If they fail in their endeavour, band-baaja baj jaayega.
