SURAJ PE MANGAL BHARI is the story of a feud between a wedding detective and a dairy owner. Shokhi Banerjee's story is very interesting and entertaining. Rohan Shankar's screenplay is entertaining for most parts. Rohan Shankar's dialogues are hilarious and a few of them are sure to induce claps. Abhishek... Sharma's direction is neat. Manoj Bajpayee is energetic and is sure to be loved. Diljit Dosanjh is as always in his element. Fatima Sana Shaikh is quite good in some scenes. But in a few sequences, her expressions are a bit off. Annu Kapoor (Shantaram Kaka) is impressive and one wishes he had a longer role. Supriya Pilgaonkar (Rekha Rane) is great and contributes to the humour. Manuj Sharma is nice as Diljit’s sidekick. Manoj Pahwa and Seema Pahwa and Neeraj Sood are alright. Vanshika Sharma is funny. Neha Pendse (Kavya Godbole) is beautiful and has a crucial part in which she does very well. Vijay Raaz (Chinmay Godbole) is arguably the funniest part about the film.
Javed-Mohsin's music is poor. Kingshuk Chakravarty's background score is excellent, especially the theme music used in Manoj Bajpayee’s scenes. Anshuman Mahaley's cinematography is first-rate. Rajat Poddar's production design is authentic and reminds one of the 90s. Vijay Ganguly's choreography is appealing in 'Basanti'. Jia Bhagia and Mallika Chauhan's costumes are realistic for all the characters. Fatima’s clothes however don’t seem to be of 1995 but nevertheless, looks glamorous. Rameshwar Bhagat's editing is fair. On the whole, SURAJ PE MANGAL BHARI is a decent entertainer and a clean family film that works because of its plot, the depiction of the mid-90s era and the performances.Read More
