Shaadi Ke Side Effects Movie Review

Ratings:3/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN 

Yet the film’s consistently crackling dialogue and terrific performances from its leads makes it enjoyable despite its obvious bumps.But Shaadi Ke Side Effects belongs to Farhan, who reveals incredible comic timing as he slips into the role of the self-obsessed man-child struggling to cope with change. Steering clear of melodrama even when the script falls prey to it, Farhan plays it effortlessly cool.The film then is easy and breezy, although too long at nearly two-and-a-half hours. I’m going with three out of five for Shaadi Ke Side Effects. Predictable and occasionally misguided, but also hopelessly fun.

SHAADI KE SIDE/EFFECTS is more about rediscovering your partner, post marriage. The fact that Saket borrows from real-life instances makes it relatable and identifiable. The connect is tremendous, with the spectator often drawing parallels with his/her life. On the whole, SHAADI KE SIDE/EFFECTS is a delicious take on contemporary relationships. This one’s relatable, heart-warming, amusing and thoroughly enjoyable!

Shaadi Ke Side Effects is actually two films in one. The first half is a sparkling comedy, which traces the metamorphosis of happily married couple Sid and Trisha, ayed by Farhan Akhtar and Vidya Balan. But post-interval, another film begins. The screenplay lurches randomly, eventually leading to a climax so convoluted and false that much of the affection I had for Sid and Trisha evaporated. Which is such a shame because until then, I was having so much fun. Shaadi Ke Side Effects is in equal parts, enjoyable and exasperating. Pretty much like the average marriage.

Ratings:3.5/5 Review By: Madhureeta Mukherjee Site:Times of India (TOI)

The director strikes a fine balance between humour and emotion in this slice-of-marriage story. The first half takes a while to catch up, but the dialogues (Arshad Sayed) provide ample laughs, while giving wisdom for wedded bliss. Vir Das in his funky avatar is a riot. Vidya is brilliant and hits a high note in the emotional scenes. The film belongs to Farhan who stuns you with his straight-faced witticisms and plethora of expressions that amuse and move dramatically. Single or married, this film will have more of a ‘special effect’ than ‘side effect’ on you.

On the whole, Shaadi Ke Side/Effects is entertaining fare for the youngsters and the class audience but only upto a point, after which the entertainment quotient goes down completely. It will, therefore, not be able to achieve much at the box-office. The start is not upto the mark and although collections will pick up in the high-end multiplexes during the weekend, business in smaller centres and single-screen cinemas will be way below the mark. Flop.

Shaadi Ke Side Effects, via the words of Ranvir, hands out some dodgy pop psychology to justify a somewhat far-fetched ‘formula’ for a happy marriage.Shaadi Ke Side Effects isn’t exceptionally engaging fare. It is essentially a single idea stretched to the very end of its tether. Yet, the sheer ordinariness of the circumstances that the story hinges on helps the film retain its amusing core. Shaadi Ke Side Effects is recommended because, despite its flaws, it is passable fun while it lasts.

Shaadi Ke Side Effects (SKSE) opens on this contrived note and meanders for an over-stretched 145 minutes, full of twists and turns, that one has come to so famously associate with soaps produced by Balaji. Chaudhary has, at times, over-simplified the complex issues married couples face (sharing of parental responsibilities) and, at times, over-amplified the way these strange creatures (read married couples) react to facts of married-life, like pregnancies.

While the going is good, ‘Shaadi’ is fun, and real, and has some nice laugh-out-loud situations which the leads make the most of. But marriage takes two, and the tango here is only from Sid’s perspective : how about showing us what it could be like from Trisha’s ? So naturally the film belongs more to Farhan, who plays it straight and true, even when he is being asked to do the most improbable stuff. Vidya is competent but limited, which could be down to the way her character was scrunched. I really liked the climax, though: how about the next one starting from where this one ends?

The best part about the first half of the film is that there is hardly any drama, all the good scenes are random, on-the-spot incidents backed by good writing and acting. But all that was avoided in the first half was obviously saved for post interval. After the popcorn break, the humour is almost over and there is just drama which stretches till the end of the film. Though the director did manage to deliver a decent film, it could have been much better. The first half is funny and filled with superb humour. The film dips in the second half and is way too lengthy for this genre. Nevertheless it’s a decent watch!

Every once in a while there comes a film that is mostly clichéd and utterly predictable, and is yet difficult to hate because its leads are so darn likable. Shaadi Ke Side Effects is one such film. Still, the film’s blunders are outweighed by its goodies, a big one of which is Ram Kapoor as the Perfect Dad who keeps making Sid jealous. There are a handful of solid giggles, and the film cleverly pushes the right double standard buttons to outrage both s**es, and ties it all up with a neat little bow in the end. That kind of balance is rare in Bollywood, and for that the film merits a definite recco.

Despite the brilliant performances and some incredibly funny situations, Saket’s narrative slumps innumerable times over the two-hour-and-twenty-five-minutes screen time. But if you have time to spare, then ‘Shaadi Ke Side Effects’ is a fairly enjoyable ride. Only, don’t go looking for any marriage counseling here because you are not going to find it.

it’s the chemistry between Balan and Akhtar that keeps this romantic comedy tingling. They have an effortless chemistry and we buy into their marriage madness primarily because of their acting muscles. While it’s engaging and non-preachy for most parts, it’s best if you don’t question how Sid, who plays a struggling musician, affords that slick lifestyle and a nanny in a single income household. If you can forego such practicalities, you are good to watch Shaadi Ke Side Effects.

I love the first half of the film. It was gripping and taut, though unoriginal, I thought it was magnificently done. The vivid and sparkling chemistry of Vidya and Farhan manage to hold you through tight and still. However, in the second half, the film begins a journey downhill, slipping vigorously slide by slide, getting schmaltzy quite unjustifiably. But in the end it still manages to deliver a product that is overall a surprising winner of sorts.

  1. Rajiv is so strict in reviewing and taran is so generous. ..so I dont believe the both….taran gave 4.5 a dull n crap movie like jai ho..

  2. Pritish Nandy’s ‘Pyaar Ke Side Effects’ was loved by Indian audiences because of its different approach to love stories in India. It was clearly a game changer for both Rahul Bose and Mallika Sherawat. After a long gap of 8 years, the production house has come up with a movie of same genre. This time they vow to tell you the side effects of a marriage.

    ‘Shaadi Ke Side Effects’ is the story of a happily married couple Siddharth (Farhan Akhtar) and Trisha (Vidya Balan). The story revolves around some formulas to make a marriage life successful. What brings in a twist to the story is when the couple decides to have a baby. The extra responsibility adds up. Siddharth soon realizes that he has lost his carefree lifestyle and begins to recall his good old days. He loses his wife to the mother of his daughter. And that is when the side effects come into the picture. Is the couple able to sustain their married life?

    Shaadi Ke Side Effects starts on a high note. The very starting of the movie gives you a perception of an interesting journey ahead. The dialogues are hilarious. The execution of the scenes is good enough to make you laugh.
    Let me warn you there is not much content here if you’re looking for some.
    The film suffers with a slow second half which is a big disappointment after such a good start.

    Farhan Akhtar truly takes away the credit of whole of this drama. Look at his comic timing in some of the scenes, this man is surely going to tickle your bones. Vidya Balan supports him well to in the role of a frustrated married woman. Vir Das is funny. Ram Kapoor and Gautami Kapoor are good enough.

    ‘Shaadi Ke Side Effects’ is that recipe which can be easily prepared at home but you prefer to have it in a restaurant. Give it a watch with your partner and laugh at what you all had been experiencing these years.

    Rating- 3/5
