‘Sui Dhaaga’ Movie Review: Mamta and Mauji will win your heart with their fight against all odds

Directed By: Sharat Katariya
Produced By: Maneesh Sharma, Aditya Chopra
Cast: Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma
Duration: 2 hrs 2 mins
Bollywood Bubble Rating: 4/5

In the beginning, Varun Dhawan (Mauji) plays a character who earns his bread by acting like a dog, monkey, bull and a bear. All of this, to keep his bosses entertained. He takes insults left, right and centre but still manages to smile, because he feels that his Boss is entitled to harassing him. After all, he pays him a salary. Anushka Sharma (Mamta) sees this and encourages him to quit, because it’s better to earn a little less than lead a life full of disrespect. So taking her advice, Mauji quits his job and starts his own business with Mamta. The couple face numerous challenges, but one by one, they manage to overcome all of them.

There are a lot of heartbreaking moments – Mauji has to cycle with a badly injured foot, Mamta has to give a sewing test that she is not prepared for and people in general are hellbent on making their life difficult. What makes this film a winner all the way is that it manages to keep the story extremely realistic, without being dull or slow. Both Varun and Anushka give ace performances, and you could watch the movie a second time just to observe how well they have emoted with their eyes. Anushka’s performance stands out because it is so unlike her other roles. Mamta is so unlike Anushka, and it’s impressive how she manages to imbibe Mamta’s psyche and her body language.

This is a heartfelt underdog story, where two people fight against all odds to emerge victorious. Yes, the climax is a little too idealistic, but this writer wouldn’t have it any other way. As for the songs, they are extremely well composed by Anu Malik. They don’t interfere with the screenplay at all, and have inspiring lyrics that can help you cope during difficult times.

Without a doubt, this movie’s life will not be restricted to how long it runs in the theatres. It’s going to be remembered for a long time for genuine emotions don’t come with an expiry date. As for its message, it does manage to inspire you to start your own business, but at the same time, also brings you face to face with the challenges involved. It’s great that established actors like Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma are moving beyond ripped abs and party songs, and telling stories that society needs.

Watch this film with your family, and keep those tissues handy.
