‘Ginny Weds Sunny’ movie review: This Vikrant Massey and Yami Gautam wedding soiree is predictable and boring

Just a few enjoyable traces aside, there’s nothing refreshing concerning the Bollywood romcom on Netflix

“We’re very trendy,” Satnam aka Sunny Sethi’s (Vikrant Massey) father (Rajiv Gupta) insists. He provides to good impact, “We now have an computerized automobile and cell phone with 4G.” This, when matchmaker Shobha Juneja (Ayesha Raza Mishra) calls him outdated for not serious about whether or not the bride-to-be may need her personal profession goals, versus partnering within the household’s restaurant enterprise that’s but to take form.

Just a few such witty segments perk up the unlikely romance between Sunny, and his school-time crush Ginny (Yami Gautam) who he at all times thought was too good for him. One by no means is aware of. All it takes is a mom who can sense that her daughter isn’t shifting on from a now-yes now-no confused relationship together with her ex and hopes that an unassuming Sunny can win her coronary heart.

Ginny Weds Sunny

  • Forged: Vikrant Massey, Yami Gautam
  • Route: Puneet Khanna
  • Streaming on: Netflix

It’s matchmaking season on Netflix, the place this Hindi movie streams. Not like matchmaker Seema from the net sequence who goes by catalogues to decide on potential brides and grooms, Shobha (her company is named ‘Rishte hello Rishte’) has a observe document of arranging 100% profitable marriages. She takes Sunny underneath her wings, with the consent of his dad and mom, and units him as much as path Ginny.

 

Can love be organized? The dad and mom and Sunny hope so. The Delhi and NCR romance nods to many issues synonymous with Punjabi households — from the recognition of Baadshah and Mika Sigh numbers to traces reminiscent of ‘we Punjabis are left with feelings and paneer’ (Navjot Gulati and Sumit Arora share the writing credit).

Nonetheless, aside from a chuckle right here and there, the enjoyable fizzles out after a degree. The movie has a slim storyline and as soon as Ginny’s ex, Suhail Nayyar as Nishant, halts the budding romance between Sunny and Ginny in its tracks, the remainder of the movie is extraordinarily predictable. And boring. There’s nothing a lot the charming leads can do. Vikrant and Yami are convincing of their given characters however these aren’t their greatest performances.

Shobha Juneja will get some good moments within the movie and shines by.

Most marriage ceremony rom-coms could not purpose to create a long-lasting impression however attempt to entertain you whereas it lasts. However Ginny Weds Sunny felt lengthy and tiresome even with its 125-minute length.
