What's Your Raashee - Movie Review

A never-ending saga
By Naresh Kumar Deoshi

While one girl (Aries) tries hard to please the NRI Yogesh, another (Aquarius) asks him to reject her because she’s already got a boyfriend. The third (Gemini) is a teenybopper who doesn’t want to get married soon. The fourth (Cancer) confesses to Yogesh that she’s not a virgin. The fifth (Libra) sees Yogesh as her ticket to the US. The sixth (Pisces) believes she and Yogesh are lovers of past lives reincarnated to unite in this life. The seventh (Leo) is a feisty dancer who thinks Yogesh is an NRI snob. The eighth (Scorpio) wants to use Yogesh to fulfill her dream of being a model. The ninth (Virgo) is a doctor who can’t leave her practice in India. The tenth (Sagittarius) is astrology obsessed. The eleventh (Taurus) is a rich heiress who pretends she’s mad. The twelfth (Capricorn) is a minor who doesn’t even want to get married.

So, as the drama trudges on, Yogesh must finalize one of these 12 girls to be his life partner. And the funny thing in ‘What’s Your Raashee’ is that he doesn’t even get to make that choice in the end.

The movie, though, can be seen for Priyanka’s terrific performances. She makes every one of her characters different - the slouch of a small-town girl, the bounciness of the teenybopper, the cockiness of a business executive, the swagger, the simper, the twitch of the lip, or the pursed brow of other characters. Priyanka rocks in ‘What’s Your Raashee.’ Harman Baweja pulls off his role pretty well after the disastrous performances in Love Story 2050 and Victory. In supporting roles, Darshan Jariwala and Mohan Agashe are first rate.

Apart from good performances, the movie does have well-penned, witty dialogues. In fact, the film is generously sprinkled with feelgood humour and is doubtlessly entertaining at times. If only Gowarikar knew how to rein in himself and cut down on the songs.

Just a statutory warning before I close. Cancel all appointments before you go to watch ‘What’s Your Raashee’. Sitting through this matrimonial marathon is like undertaking a long journey.

I went in clean shaven, came out with stubble.

Rating: 4/10
