What's Your Raashee - Movie Review

A never-ending saga
By Naresh Kumar Deoshi

Damn! I forgot to check my day’s horoscope before catching up the first show of What's Your Raashee?. Now, as I nurse the bum ache of having sat through 3.30+ hours of this never-ending tale of bridal quest peppered with 13 long songs, I read my raashee clearly warning me of health hazards and possible monetary loss. Stars and planets can sometimes be spot on in predicting the daily human affairs.

Ashutosh Gowarikar - may stars bless him - exemplifies in ‘What’s Your Raashee’ how a brilliant story idea can be messed up when a filmmaker gets too involved in his own creation to think about the audience. So in this rom-com starring Priyanka Chopra in 12 roles, Ashutosh goes on and on and bombards the hapless viewers with song after song before finally wrapping up the film in a climax that leaves many jaws dropped (not out of snoring but disappointment) in the theatre.

But…but…but…my dear wakeful friends, somewhere between those unwanted songs and a few painfully stretched sequences, there lies a nice, entertaining film with delightfully wicked humour and fun. Only Ashutosh ought to have whittled away the overwrought rumps, he had a sure-shot hit on his hands. But perhaps, that was not in his raashee.

Based on Gujarati writer Madhu Rye’s book ‘Kimball Ravenswood’, ‘What’s Your Raashee?’ tells the story of a US-returned Yogesh Patel (Harman Baweja) who must find a suitable bride for himself within a fortnight, get married and inherit the wealth of his dear nanaji to save his family from the danger of an imminent financial bankruptcy brought on by his scandalous elder brother (Dilip Joshi).

A hesitant Yogesh hits upon an idea. Aided by his match-making uncle (Darshan Jariwala) he plans to meet a girl from a raashee each and then zero down on his bride. So, enter 12 Priyankas, each with a different zodiac trait.
