Vasudha (Vidya Balan), the mother of a 5-year old child and a derelict wife of a narcissistic and conformist Hari (Rajkumar Rao), works to earn for living at multi millionaire business tycoon, Aarav Ruparel’s (Emraan Hashmi) five-star hotel. Rajkumar Rao (Vidya’s Mangalsutra, Sindhur and Chudi), fundamentals to truss her within social norms, remains missing rightly a year after their marriage for five years, leaving her to combat lonely in a chaotic and confused world.
Her encounter with Emraan Hashmi punches her perception with a luminosity of hope that there is a beautiful life beyond her “Mangalsutra and Shindur”. With her appointment at Emraan’s Dubai hotel forces her to duel “within” between her haunted past of Rajkumar Rao and blissful and promising present of Emraan Hashmi. Wide extended hands full of protection and love of Emraan Hashmi surmounts her haunted past, that embeds her suppression through the obsolete and conceited cultural and religious values, and invigorates her for the fulfillment of her years repressed sexual desire in Emraan’s warm embrace. But she cannot perpetuate the life of her ecstasy for a long time after Rajkumar’s comeback from his 5-year incarceration rather strangulates it in fetus before it blooms in a beautiful flower. Vidya is again enforced to swim in the pond filled with harassment and angst.
Rajkumar questions on her chastity only to run out being barmy after the confession of her infidelity from the room to be arrested in accuse of a terrorist. Emraan’s, on the other hand, strain gets accomplishment to prove Rajkumar’s innocence collecting proof but at the cost of his own death. Eventually, Vasudha emancipates herself from the “Tie” of “Mangalsutra” living alone along with her son miles away from her husband in Calcutta till to her death.
How I Perceived The Movie
Plot of the movie is slackly written against female’s subordination lacking the vigor for a good movie. For instance, Emraan Hashmi, a poor child of a helpless mother, grows up to be a successful hotel magnet but without a clue how he earns 108 “5-star” hotels.
Hackneyed and archaic dialogues drive us to the world of the olden days’ movies. However, some points touch deeply to browbeaten women’s predicament:
As Vasudha says to Hari: –
Mangh meri, sindhur tumahri namka, Gala meri, mangalsutra tumahri namka, Kokh meri, bachcha tumahre namka, Sabkuch tumahari namka, Aakhir tumahri pas kay he mere namka.
Such dialogues squeeze the emotion of a male chauvinist.
Vidya Balan, Emraan Hashmi and Rajkummar Rao have tried their best to flow themselves according to the plot’s demand but Vidya’s character seems a bit fatty and aged to match her as the wife of Rajkumar. Hashmi and Vidya dig a pool full of tears unnecessarily for the audiences to swim into it.
Emraan’s untimely demise disrupts the completion of Emraan and Vidya’s love affair, thus the title “Hamari Adhuri Kahani” sounds suitable.
Mohit Suri exploits all his might to give something out form slackly written plot but becomes helpless when his expectation gets derailed.However, a shoot is appreciable. Location is average. Melodious songs turn the only means to soothe us on our expenditure for the movie ticket.
Despite a bit flaws, the movie shields itself amalgamating love, nuptial life and dependency of docile and submissive conservative women. It is accountable to be credited it with 2 and 1/2 out of 5 stars.
If you like such above mentioned story or if the movie actors are heartthrob to you, it whole heartedly welcomes you, but if you are not, you pay worthlessly Rs.100 for the ticket worth of Rs.40. Choice is yours ……………………………….!
