This charming entertainer directed by Maneesh Sharma is set in middle-class Delhi and tells a story of two ordinary characters.Band Baaja Baaraat benefits enormously from its two core strengths – sharp writing, and shooting on location. Both, in fact, give the film and its characters a real, believable feel.The first half is immensely enjoyable The second half of the film, unfortunately, loses steam early on.Yet for the most part, Band Baaja Baaraat works because it’s invested with an earnestness that’s become increasingly rare to find at the movies I’m going with three out of five for director Maneesh Sharma’s Band Baaja Baaraat. It’s a romantic comedy done correctly. Fun, but with warmth at its heart. Don’t miss it.

As long as you view Band Baaja Baaraat as a loving, heartfelt take on what makes Delhi go dhak-dhak, the film holds your attention. But when you begin to view the film as a new age romance, it becomes somewhat awkward and rough, primarily because the lead couple can hardly light up the screen with passion and pyaar. As they rightly lay down the rules at the very beginning: No pyar in vyapar…. It may not scorch the box office and may not go down in your must-watch list. Yet Band Baajaa Baaraat engages you with its fond look at fun-loving Dilliwalas.

Thankfully, BAND BAAJA BAARAAT works on every level. The writing [screenplay: Habib Faisal] is crisp, the execution of the material [director: Maneesh Sharma] is worthy and the lead actors [Anushka, Ranveer] steer the film to the destination smoothly. Of course, there are minor hiccups halfway through the film, but the fact remains that BAND BAAJA BAARAAT is, without doubt, one of the most appealing films to come out of the production house. Final word? BAND BAAJA BAARAAT is honest, fresh, youthful and extremely entertaining. Recommended!

The love story of two wedding planners in Delhi, Shruti and Bittoo, played by Anushka Sharma and Ranveer Singh, has a charm and sweetness that’s been missing from YRF movies for many moons now. The first half, in which him and Shruti set up their company is great fun, with weddings and struggle and a mid-point twist that will surprise you. Sadly, the second half is a big let down with too much fighting, stretched-out wedding sequences and even an item number in which Bittoo and Shruti fill in for Shah Rukh Khan who can’t dance at the wedding because he hurts his leg. But if you’re willing to cut Bittoo and Shruti some slack, Band Baaja Baaraat is reasonably entertaining. It’s definitely the most fun you’ll have in a theater this weekend.

The script is fresh and debutant director Maneesh Sharma does full justice to it. The movie is well written and the director has handled the subject really well. He has executed the light moments as well as subtle emotions amazingly well. On the whole, Band Baaja Baraat is a refreshing film — very different from the usual romantic comedy movies we’re so used to. It is a well-made film that should connect with the audience. Give this one a chance, you won’t regret it.

Yashraj Films gets most of it right with `Band Baaja Baraat’, a film which toplines two ordinary characters played by a couple of actors who can make you believe in their ordinarines. A big part of the delight of ‘Band Baaja Baraat’ is the writing which imparts nice little touches to its characters, making them real as opposed to outlined caricatures. There are more slips in the second half, where a silly conflict is created between the two which stretches the film for no reason. But both Sharma and Singh, the near pitch-perfect surprise packet of the film, make you smile. Enough reason for a visit.

The main reason why BAND BAAJA BARAAT works is because of its refreshing script. In the second half, there’s a slight dip in the narrative after Shruti falls for Bitoo. The plot gets a bit threadbare and even predictable. Wish it was much tighter. There’s an interesting blend of humour, drama and romance in the film. It’s replete with great scenes.Make sure you join the celebrations and groove with this BAND BAAJA BAARAAT. Strongly recommended.
