Wedding Pullav Movie Reviews
Wedding Pullav is about a Punjabi wedding with ongoing noisy band, bajaa and obnoxious baraat, the groom realises that he’s in love with his female best friend instead of the brid. Aditya is a bike designer but for some reason, everyone around is working towards fulfilling his dreams. Everyone includes his lecherous father (Satish Kaushik), unnecessarily comical mother (Himani Shivpuri), best friend Anushka, some insipid, not necessary to be named cronies, fiancée Riya and Riya’s father. The parents have their own romances served as side dishes.Anushka has a steady, long-haired boyfriend (Karan V Grover) whose profession is simply painting women in the nude.
In the middle of their respective destination weddings in Thailand, Aditya and Anushka realise that they are actually in love with each other. The two make a charming pair, but that’s not enough in this mishmash of an indigestible pullav. Rishi Kapoor plays a friendly hotel manager, but it seems like the director was so desperate to have him in the film that he tried to put him in scenes where he was not needed. He himself looks as uncomfortable as someone who’s been force-fed stale pullav for days together. With no distinct taste or flavour, this film makes for a huge disappointment.

The film’s music (Salim-Sulaiman) is the saving grace and boasts of two hummable songs in the form of ‘Party Karni Hai’ and ‘Oh Jaaniya’. On the other hand, the film’s background music (Rohit Kulkarni) leaves no impact on the audiences. The film’s cinematography (Gopal Shah) is decent. The film’s editing (Sayyed Sameer) is very clumsy and could have been better by leaps and bounds. The film’s poor script and screenplay, doubled up with sloppy editing lands up making a ‘khichdi’ of the dish called ‘WEDDING PULLAV’.
Everything is predictable. These are new faces, and yet everything they do smacks of staleness. Overused themes can be infused with freshness only if the treatment is right: here, all elements are borrowed from older films and used so clunkily as to extinguish all freshness. And Rishi Kapoor, who can be relied upon to save sinking ships, shows up as the resident Love Guru, and is made to play it just like the film: with not one ounce of spark or novelty.
Wedding Pullav appears to have been made by people high on cheap liquor. They believe that overkill works best. The rest of the world knows it doesn’t.Love triangles click only when the actors in the key roles can make the audience believe that sweet nothings aren’t as vacuous as they sound.The leads of Wedding Pullav do not possess that power. They only make the film’s string of implausible scenes much worse than they already are.

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and My Best Friend’s Wedding revamped, this pulav is probably the most stale wedding dish you’ll have ever. The film follows the standard Punjabi wedding film template to the T, then giving it the cliched ‘pyaar dosti hai’ twist to infuse novelty. The end result is so bland, predictable and juvenile that you’ll probably hate the joy of weddings or the concept of love altogether. Wedding Pullav seems like a never-ending wedding video of an acquaintance, you feel nothing for. It’s loaded with mandatory party/ wedding songs, honeymoon jokes, friendly banter, mummiji’s drama, et al. What the film lacks is heart and scrumptious food!
