Shaadi Ke Side Effects
Report dated 28/02/2014 @ 11:18 AM

Shaadi Ke Side Effects Cast: Farhan Akhtar, Vidya Balan, Vir Das, Ram Kapoor, Purab Kohli

Direction: Saket Chaudhary

Sid & Trisha have moved beyond dating days. They've survived multiple lovers' tiffs and overcome PMS (read: pre-marriage syndrome). Bravo! Now they are a happily married couple. Wait! Only until a 'pregnant' pause changes it all.

He says it. She disagrees. He reacts. She overacts. He makes mistakes, he says sorry. She makes mistakes, 'he' says sorry. So there! Even geniuses like Socrates and Einstein couldn't crack a fool-proof plan to a 'happy marriage'. Even novel cosmic concepts like Men are from Mars and Women are from all over the place (lol!) can't explain this 'heavenly' intervention. So then? Let's take a look at Saket Chaudhary's insightful story of shaadi and its shocking effects.

Sid's (Farhan) married life seems to be rocking with his adventurous wife Trisha (Vidya), until a chance 'unprotected' moment of pleasure lands them with a 'bundle' of unwanted problems. He puts his musical ambitions to rest, from composing jingles to singing lullabies for his little girl (even breaking into 'Sweet Child of Mine' - Wake up, Guns 'n' Roses! Hilarious!).

Trisha turns into an idiosyncratic, full-time mommy and Sid is left missing their lovely 'twosome' life. Pillow talk turns to potty talk and spousal spasms crawl into their shaadi, leading Sid to seek advice from bro-in-law (Ram Kapoor, lending good support). Does the quick-fix save-the-shaadi solution create more cracks, or stoke the chemistry? The best part is that Sid and Trisha don't 'fake' it. Ever! They are believable characters living real life situations. Yet, their quirkiness leaves you with delightful guffaws. Saket's story (sequel to 'Pyaar Ke Side Effects') pulls everything together skillfully, with conversations that turn into epigrams and chemistry that exudes wit and lovability. There's nothing schmaltzy or superficial about it.

The director strikes a fine balance between humour and emotion in this slice-of-marriage story. The first half takes a while to catch up, but the dialogues (Arshad Sayed) provide ample laughs, while giving wisdom for wedded bliss. Vir Das in his funky avatar is a riot. Vidya is brilliant and hits a high note in the emotional scenes. The film belongs to Farhan who stuns you with his straight-faced witticisms and plethora of expressions that amuse and move dramatically.

Single or married, this film will have more of a 'special effect' than 'side effect' on you.
