YRF makes a comeback this year with a story of two simpletons who dare to dream big. Starring Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma, Sui Dhaaga portrays struggles and hardcore emotions. A journey that takes the protagonists Mauji and Mamta from rags to riches.
Although we have found few glitches in the film’s storyline, still Sui Dhaaga is a must watch anyway.
The struggle is quite real and relatable
Mauji’s family makes ends meet every single day until his father retires, and Mauji’s wife Mamta asks him to quit the job that brings him only shame. Mamta believes in Mauji’s talent at tailoring and makes him realise the same, finally leading him to the path of hard work, and ultimately success.
The family tiffs, detailed emotions and raw spirit in the film paint a picture of great realism and relatable cinema. You are bound to laugh aloud and get teary-eyed in many such scenes in the film.
Varun and Anushka play heartwarming characters
Mauji is a delightful being who believes in staying positive and jolly with his life mantra – “Sab badhiya hai” (everything’s great). It keeps him going through the thick and thin, of course with his wife by his side. Mamta gracefully draws the shining map to Mauji’s success in the film.
Varun encapsulates himself into every essence and emotion of Mauji’s character. Right from his desi accent, desi avatar and right upto learning how to use a sewing machine and tailoring – Varun proves his growth as an actor. His heartwarming performance stands out as a clear winner amongst the entire cast, so you might want to watch this one just for Dhawan!
Anushka, on the other hand, puts away all the glamour she is known for and pulls off the plain Jane’s role quite well. There are moments when you forget who the star is owing to her attention to detail. She walks like she isn’t too confident, eats without grace and stands by her husband like a pillar of hope and strength.
The storyline is inspirational
The film stresses on the fact that it’s hard to throw away a job, money and put your family’s expectations aside when it comes to following a brand new path of passion, but it’s important to believe in yourself nonetheless.
Mauji and Mamta break stereotypes and conventional desi ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing. The way they earn a new sewing machine is our favourite bit in the film – full of relentless emotions and drama. They also get betrayed on this path owing to their innocence, but they keep at it.
A family movie by YRF
YRF is known for its family dramas and we’ve been waiting for a good one for a long time now. Sui Dhaga pleasingly fits that bill.
It’s hard to remember the last time we went for a family movie that promised zero double meaning jokes, a sleazy item number or questionable swear words. It’s a breath of fresh air when a story appeals to you and your family without having to use those stunts. So thank you for that, Yash Raj Films!
You might wonder how the end comes together so easily even though they strive so hard in the beginning, but the performances and fresh storyline will make you want to ignore all of that. It’s four reasons against one, so go watch this one cause overall “sab badhiya hai”!
