As soon as the trailer of Veere Di Wedding released, it went viral, with some calling it an Indian version of Sex And The City and some simply praising its freshness.
If you haven’t watched the trailer yet, watch it here:
Here five reasons why we feel Veere Di Wedding is a breath of fresh air Indian cinema needs:
1. A different take on ‘shaadi’:
We have seen Bollywood movies about big fat weddings and a shy heroine who is blushing through all ceremonies and enjoying them. But Veere Di Wedding shows us a more real, a different side to the wedding through Kalindi’s (Kareena Kapoor Khan) character who is upset with the showbaazi that is often a part of Indian weddings.
2. The importance of a girl gang:
We see the four women, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania having loads of fun. They have a gang that is open with each other and shares not only moments of sorrow but also of fun. We have seen many movies which revolve around the friendship between guys, but very few that talk about the friendship between girls. And yes, this is not a chick flick.
One of the best parts in the trailer of the movie was how casually the women are shown talking about orgasm or ‘charamsukh’. That is needed. The film is brave enough to show that, in a light moment.
4. Standing by your friends:
Sonam Kapoor’s character is shown standing by her friends when her reel mother is heard calling them ‘weird’. That is what real friends do. Not conforming to the traditional mould of being a woman, does not mean it is okay to be ridiculed.
5. Women too can abuse:
“Ladki hoke gaali deti hai?” is a dialogue people use randomly these days. While there is no glory is abusing, the trailer shows the characters often abusing to vent out their anger. That is real. That is a fresh take on the ‘abla naari’ sketch.
The four women looked beautiful at the trailer launch that was held in Mumbai yesterday:
Veere Di Wedding is going to release on June 1. Are you going to watch it?
