Shaadi Se Pehle Movie Review: Wedding Belles
Shaadi Se Pehle is a romantic comedy wherein Akshaye Khanna works for an ad agency, and he and Ayesha Takia are in love and are engaged. Akshaye goes for a check-up to Boman Irani who plays a doctor. There is a misunderstanding and Akshaye gets the impression that he is suffering from cancer and has only a year to live. In order to make it easier on Ayesha, Akshaye poses as a sly character to break off the engagement. Just when he is close to his mission, Akshaye meets Mallika Sherawat who plays an International model. Mallika is drawn towards Akshaye and falls in love with him, and Ayesha is compelled to break the engagement when she sees another woman in her his life. Now Akshaye faces another problem. Mallika wants to marry him and there is nothing he can do to refute her advances, because her brother is a don (Suniel Shetty). Matters turn for the worst when Akshaye realises that he is not suffering from cancer and now he wants to return to his old love Ayesha. Where production values are excellent, Johny Lal?s cinematography is definitely worth a mention. The main drawback of the film is the lack of novelty in the script. Performance-wise, Akshaye Khanna plays the pivotal role and does his best as an actor. Ayesha Takia comes across natural, and Mallika Sherawat does what she does the best: strutting enough oomph to let the show going. As the director, Satish Kaushik does a fair job, but he is let down by a poor script, though Sanjay Chhel?s dialogue definitely has the punch at the right places.
