Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari review | cricbuzz live score

Suraj Pe Manga

As a viewer, you expect the movie to be a laughing riot when you have onboard two great actors who have successfully embraced the comic genre.

But that, unfortunately, is not the case with Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari of Abhishek Sharma.
Sharma's film starring Diljit Dosanjh and Manoj Bajpayee in the lead alongside a brilliant supporting star-cast is set in the 1990s and beautifully captures Mumbai.

The story revolves around Madhu Mangal Rane (Bajpayee), a wedding detective, who does background checks of prospective grooms.

Suraj Dhillon (Diljit) owns a dairy company and is looking for a good girl to settle down with.
When Madhu ruins a successful marriage proposal for Suraj, the latter is irked and tries to take revenge.

He ends up fall in love with Tulsi Rane (Fatima Sana Shaikh), the sister of Madhu.
But is Madhu going to let them get married?
Story-wise, Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari has nothing extraordinarily new to offer.

But the film loses the quotient of laughter and does not tickle your funny bone as much as you'd like.
Because it's a situational comedy, now and then the plot has to flow with comedic punches seamlessly so that you don't lose interest.
Sadly, it won't happen.

Yeah, you do make Diljit and Manoj laugh, but not regularly, and that's the biggest disappointment.
Both actors are very good at their performances, but the writing tends to let them down.
With his comedic timing, Diljit is fabulous, especially when he attempts to speak Marathi.

The character of Manoj has hints of grey and correctly pulls it off with a smirk throughout.
Fatima Sana Sheikh looks lovely and offers firm support.
Supriya Pilgaonkar, Annu Kapoor, Seema Pahwa, Manoj Pahwa, Vijay Raaz, and Neha Pendse's supporting cast are also acceptable.

The ensemble cast is what makes Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari worth watching.
It's not often that you get to see a bunch of good actors come together in a movie, so it's difficult to believe that by coming up with a story that never hits the high points, the makers missed this chance.
But kudos to Diljit and Manoj for seriously playing their parts and taking a lot more to the table.

All in all, due to the performances, Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari is an acceptable affair.
It is a joy to see Diljit and Manoj on screen together.
