Winning a pressure cooker in a radio contest proved life changing moment for Sulu. She was asked to collect the prize from the office. She was overwhelmed to meet her favorite RJ Albeli Anjali, played by real-life RJ Malishka. She also meets Maria (Neha Dhupia) who heads the FM station. And impressed by her voice quality, Sulu bags the job of night RJ. Back home, she begins to train herself to speak in a sexy and husky voice.

Things were going pretty well but son Sulu became hot favourite among the listeners. Listeners connect with Sulu easily. If on one hand Sulu’s professional career sprung then on the other hand her personally life got upset.  Her late night shows in radio was objected by family members and her personally life took a toll due to the nature of the job although her husband supports her in her endeavour. Soon the story shifts from comedy to serious.

Speaking about the performances, saree clad Vidya Balan is a delight to watch out for. Her naughtiness, expression, acting was top-notch. Other artists like ManavKaul, Neha Dhupia played their part well.

Director by Suresh Triveni leaves no room for complaint. However, it is not a watertight script and audience would definitely crave for more.

Well, we suggest go and see ‘Tumhari Sulu’ for Vidya Balan as you will fall in love with her character.
