Reasons to watch Farhan-Vidya's 'Shaadi Ke Side Effects'

The movie, ‘Shaadi Ke Side Effects’, is a sequel to the hit-film, ‘Pyar Ke Side Effects’, released in September 2006. It was produced under the banner of Pritish Nandy Communications and was written and directed by debutante Saket Chaudhary.

The film, hitting theatres across India on February 28, 2014, has many expectations. Of the many reasons to watch the movie, one being Farhan Akhtar playing a paunchy husband opposed to his ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ appearance of six-packs.

Another important reason to go for the movie is to watch comedians Ram Kapoor and Vir Das, who come together for the first time to provide hilarious moments to entertain audiences.

One more reason to watch it would be to see Vidya Balan playing an irritating wife, featuring a performance similar to her ‘Ghanchakkar’ role appreciated by viewers all across.

The next reason is that producer Ekta Kapoor is back with Vidya after the hit-biopic film, ‘Dirty Picture’.

Another important point is that you cannot miss the film because of the couple’s on-screen chemistry, which has been well accepted by audiences going by the hits on the promos.

The movie talks of two lovers who try to rediscover their affection for each other, after their first baby. The movie teasers have been promising and, the film should turn out to be a hit. Another reason that can attract more viewers to the cinemas since there are no other big Bollywood releases against it this Friday!

Film critic Taran Adarsh said, “ ‘SHAADI KE SIDE/EFFECTS’ is more about rediscovering your partner, post marriage. Given the nature of the subject, there looms the risk of the film veering into a serious zone, but Saket makes sure he peppers the plot with humour and amusing episodes, so much so that you never stop smiling even when the on-screen couple have their share of problems or get into a spat over a trivial issue.”

“A rom-com essentially, Saket handles the light moments, as well as the dramatic ones, with dexterity.”“On the whole, ‘SHAADI KE SIDE/EFFECTS’ is a delicious take on contemporary relationships. This one’s relatable, heart-warming, amusing and thoroughly enjoyable!”

Shaadi Ke Side Effects’ is a Bollywood comedy movie directed by Saket Chaudhary and stars Farhan Akhtar, Vidya Balan in lead roles and also features Ram Kapoor, Vir Das and Hariharan in supporting roles. The film is produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and Pritish Nandy Communications.
