The Ramaiya Vastavaiya Movie Review

'Ramaiya Vastavaiya' is old romance reloaded
By Nikhil Kumar
Rating: 2.5/5

The ApunKaChoice movie review of Ramaiya Vastavaiya. Salman Khan’s hit film Maine Pyar Kiya is reloaded into a failsafe template to launch a farm fresh newcomer -- son of the film’s producer at that -- in Prabhudheva’s third outing as director in Bollywood, Ramaiya Vastavaiya. So is the film worth the time and money or just Rupaiya Wastevaiya? Let’s find out.

Ram (Girish Kumar), a young lad frolicking about on Australian beaches with bikini-clad girls, comes to India to attend the wedding of his cousin and falls head-over-heels for a decently-clad village girl Sona (Shruti Haasan), who’s pretty as a peach and has a brother (Sonu Sood) who owns a poultry farm. Ram, on the other hand, is the son of a business tycoon (Randhir Kapoor) and an overbearing, snobbish mom (Poonam Dhillon).

In the middle of the wedding jamboree, Ram woos Sona doggedly, wins her affection, and before we know it, the two are all over each other. Young blood, you see. The lovers are torn apart when Ram’s family accuses the poor Sona of ensnaring their rich son.

Post interval, the rich boy lands up at Sona’s village and tries to make amends, but her brother, having still not forgotten the insult and humiliation, throws him a near impossible challenge. The loverboy laps it up, and takes to the bucolic life like a famished cow takes to pasture. The end is predictable.

Ramaiya Vastavaiya is designed as a launchpad and a showreel for Kumar Taurani’s son Girish Kumar Taurani. A tried-and-tested love story is given a new makeover and dotted with scenes and sequences to flaunt Girish’s potential as an actor who can surf, dance, fight (all three separately, thankfully), and has the looks enough to make it to the next pin-up. Giving credit where it’s due, the young lad does have an impish charm that one can take a liking to, but he looks decidedly offbeat in serious scenes. Shruti Haasan is a touch better than him, given that the role makes no great histrionic demand from her.

Sonu Sood as her no-nonsense brother stands out and Randhir Kapoor and Poonam Dhillon do chip in well from the other side of the divisive fence. Vinod Khanna as the station master who brings up the orphaned brother-sister duo is creditable.

Ramaiya Vastavaiya is a film that will appeal to the viewers who dig the romance of 1980s and 1990s when the heroes used to overcome insurmountable odds to win their ladylove’s hand. In Ramaiya Vastavaiya those ‘insurmountable’ odds take the shape of the hero milking cows, picking cow dung, thrashing grain and other pastoral chores that the multiplex going janata may not strongly -- and directly -- relate to, but they do make for a fun watch. What’s definitely not fun is a bath sequence and the stretched into to Sonu Sood’s character at the start.

Don’t go with hefty expectations to watch Ramaiya Vastavaiya. It’s a predictable love story with juvenile humour, passable performances and catchy music.

Rating: **1/2
