Toh Baat Pakki - Movie Review

Baat kuch bani nahin

This family sitcom about finding a suitable boy seems like a blast from the past when the Sooraj Barjatya films used to invite numerous footfalls into theatres. Toh Baat Pakki, directed by Kedar Shinde, comes a little late in the day. The director adopts a simple, uncluttered approach to tell the story but stuffs it up with unnecessary melodrama at many places, the second half particularly.

So we have Tabu playing an overprotective overbearing elder sister to Uvika Chaudhary. The happily married Rajeshwari (Tabu) wants the most suitable boy as the groom for Nisha (Uvika). He should be a Saxena, should have a bright future, preferably a secure job, should not demand dowry and should have all the qualities to be a caring husband. Engineering student Rahul (Sharman Joshi) seems to fit the bill so Rajeshwari tries to hook him up with Nisha. All is well and love sprouts between Rahul and Nisha and even marriage is fixed.

But then walks in Yuvraj (Vatsal Seth) a junior manager in Godrej with a car of his own. Moreover, he’s a Saxena too. For Rajeshwari he’s doubtlessly a better option than Rahul.

So, a change of plan. Out goes Rahul and in comes Yuvraj as the prospective groom. But in this game of musical chairs, Rajeshwari turns a blind eye to the feelings of Nisha and Rahul who are by now madly in love with each other.

What follows is a Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge kind of drama where Rahul steps in to help in the wedding preparations and makes all the right moves to break off the wedding between Yuvraj and Nisha.

At its core ‘Toh Baat Pakki’ suffers from a mediocre script that’s neither funny enough to tickle your spine nor emotional enough to tug at your heart. Even the wedding jamboree and many songs fail to inject oomph into the flaccid screenplay. Yes, the repartee between Tabu and Sharman in the first half does keep you hooked, but that’s just about it for a film that’s two hours long.

Tabu rises above the script with a convincing performance and Sharman Joshi pitches in a fine act. Ayub Khan, as Tabu’s husband, and Uvika, as her sis, stay mostly on the sidelines. Vatsal Seth plays his part well.

All in all, is a humdrum family drama with a very predictable end.

Rating: 2 stars out of 5
