Sui Dhaaga Movie Review: A Motivating Story Of Rags-To-Riches Which Needs To Be Heard
Sui Dhaaga: Made In India is a comedy-drama film starring Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma in lead roles. The movie is directed by Sharad Katariya who had directed Dum Laga Ke Haisha. The film hits the theatres today.
In a country like India, where billions of people participate in the race for getting successful and there are a handful among the crowd who are filled with dreams in their eyes to see the world in their perspective wanting to invent something which will make the world spellbound with it, Sui Dhaaga uses the same concept of Make In India in their script.
The movie revolves around Mauji (Varun Dhawan) who is married to Mamta (Anushka Sharma) and live in a conservative household based in Chanderi, Madhya Pradesh. Despite being married, both of them rarely share a romantic moment all thanks to Mauji's overbearing and bickering father (Raghubir Yadav) who keeps interrupting their private moment. Mauji works as a peon in a famous tailor's shop and discovers the art of using the sui (needle) and dhaaga (thread) for making artistic creations. Mauji gets constantly bullied by the owner by making him behave like a dog at his wedding which causes an embarrassment to his family.
With determination, Mauji and Mamta decide to leave their hometown and head to Delhi along with a sewing machine. There begins Mauji's dream of starting his own garment business which will tend to cater the international audience with their "Made in India" initiative.
Director Sharad Katariya, who had directed Dum Laga Ke Haisha has used the same elements in this film, ranging from families of small-towns to neighborhoods. He is the next director to watch out for and has depended mainly on simplicity in this.
Varun Dhawan, despite having a track record of giving back-to-back hits has literally proven this time that he can take performance oriented roles in his 6-year-old career. He completely blends into the role of Mauji ranging from the accent to body language to his look. He completely nails it. Looks like this role of his is an award-winning material. The actor once revealed that his look was taken from a popular character called Suppandi which is loved by most of us who spent our childhood reading Tinkle all our lives.
The screenplay of the film is written by Sharat Katariya and he has infused the elements in such a way that it will cater mostly to youngsters and the 90s kids out there who are tired of using social media for every little thing.
Anushka Sharma, on the other hand, has gone completely de-glam in her approach. Her character relates to the housewives of small-towns ranging from the dressing sense to the accessories sporting. Her expressions seem natural and realistic in important scenes.
Anu Malik has done an amazing job in composing songs like Chaav Laaga which was shot brilliantly especially the bus sequence when Mauji runs to catch it despite the bus starts moving at 40km speed. Sab Badhiya Hai uses the folk flavour to keep the listeners addicted to it.
The background score given by Andrea Guerra is just awesome and it has a very catchy way of appealing it to the international audience if this film gets screened in cities like Taipei, Shanghai, New York, London, Toronto and Paris. This will receive a standing ovation from the audience.
So overall, Sui Dhaaga is Sab Badhiya Hai Sab Badhiya Hai!
