Shaadi Ke Side Effects movie review

SKSE Movie Name: Shaadi Ke Side Effects

Director: Saket Chaudhary
Release Date: February 28, 2014
Bollywood Garam Rating: 4/5 stars


Whether you are married, engaged, in a relationship or together for a very long time, this movie is for all people in love. Meanwhile, the rest can also sit back and enjoy the Farhan and Vidya-starrer movie, which features some great comic events that might not seem new, but still look hilarious when they are repeated by another adorable on-screen couple.

Farhan and Vidya play husband and wife in the flick and the husband here shares secrets to being a great husband and how to make your marriage a successful one. In the flick, Akhtar plays a struggling musician who composes jingles. The birth of their daughter changes their lives forever and the flick showcases the little experiences – such as loss of freedom, sleep deprivation and a sense of failure – in a comic way.

Farhan – who is known for his comic and dramatic timings – has done a great job in making the audience laugh, while Vidya has played the perfect wife who keeps nagging her husband over petty things. The only bad thing here is that the script completely takes the side of Sid, the musician husband and Vidya seems like an irritating wife.

Quite predictable, but it is definitely a full-on entertainer for the weekend.
