Zara Hatke Zara Bachke movie review (2023)
Director Laxman Utekar‘s latest venture delivers on the promise of a hilarious romantic comedy set in a small town.
Chaos ensues when the pandit’s family accidentally consumes a cake containing eggs.
Kapil’s mami (Kanupriya Pandit) takes a dig at Saumya, leading to her decision to move out and escape the constant taunts.
Kapil and Saumya embark on a quest to buy a house but realize they can’t afford one.
A bizarre twist occurs when Saumya discovers a government scheme to acquire a flat, but there’s a catch.
An unscrupulous agent, Bhagwan Das (Inaamulhaq), suggests that Saumya can qualify for the women’s quota if she divorces Kapil temporarily.
They decide to pretend to fight and get divorced, aiming to remarry once the home is allotted.
Comedy of Errors
The couple’s pretense leads to a series of hilarious mishaps, including a love triangle and the interference of a nosy security guard, Daroga (Sharib Hashmi).
The film’s first half is rib-tickling, but the entertainment level dips in the second half due to unconvincing and exaggerated sequences.
Tracks like pretending to be siblings and a government official’s sudden visit to Saumya’s rented apartment feel forced.
Medical Emergency Drama
A medical emergency track adds to the drama but fails to contribute significantly to the story’s progression.
The climax feels rushed and could have been better developed.
Vicky Kaushal’s Performance
Vicky Kaushal impresses with his portrayal of a penny-pinching small-town guy.
He delivers an emotive performance in a heart-to-heart scene at the hospital, where Kapil and Saumya resolve their differences.
Sara Ali Khan’s Role
Sara Ali Khan falls short in portraying a convincing middle-class bahu or a spirited Punjabi girl.
Despite this, the supporting cast, including Neeraj Sood, Kanupriya Pandit, Inaamulhaq, Rakesh Bedi, Harcharan Chawla, and Akash Khurana, delivers commendable performances.
Sachin-Jigar’s songs add to the film’s charm, with their catchy tunes staying with the audience.
Raghav Ramadoss’s cinematography effectively captures the small-town vibe and idiosyncrasies of Indore.
“Zara Hatke Zara Bachke” is an enjoyable one-time-watch for its funny punchlines, eccentric characters, and solid performances.
However, the unconvincing story and inconsistent screenplay prevent it from realizing its full potential.
Director Laxman Utekar’s romantic comedy offers laughter and entertainment with its small-town charm.While it falls short in certain aspects, the film remains a lighthearted and amusing cinematic experience.
