"Tumhari Sulu" Review - Vidya Balan's Best 2017 Movie


"Vidya Balan" as a brand stands for meaningful, simple and close to heart emotional yet entertaining performer. "Tumhari Sulu" has all of it, be it humor or be it simple life moments showcased beautifully on screen, the movie really succeeds in connecting the audience to the unpretentious Sulochana's life story.

Tumhari Sulu has Hrishikesh Mukherjee cinema feel to it

Suresh Triveni's direction reminds of the legend Hrishikesh Mukherjee style of cinema i.e simple, homely and lively characters which elevate the entire script. The casting takes the cake in this one as there are limited characters and one wrong move at the casting table could have made this movie an okay watch. Manav Kaul as Ashok Dubey is absolute treat and as natural as an actor can get. Vidya Balan as Sulochana Dubey a housewife who lets no opportunity to do something out of he routine and win is a perfect fit.

Sulu will make you laugh & rejoice

The character Sulu has many layers and that's what makes her believable, because real life people are multi dimensional and have millions of layers of emotions running through them. Sulu as people lovingly call her is happy and content with her life, she is not sobbing about anything. Being a RJ isn't her dream and there's no bullshit of a regressive husband not supporting his wife plot either, that's what makes the script come alive.

The first half will really make you laugh, there are bits of laughter spread throughout the film and none of them feel forced. The funny scenes take you back to your own memories because those very things are either the ones you yourself have done or craved to do, that's a sign of a great film maker and Suresh Triveni succeeds at that.

The music is awesome with Sridevi's "Hawa Hawai" recreated in the most decent manner and "Ban Ja Tu Meri Rani" integrated beautifully in the story line. Cinematic subtle representations like the pigeon flying out of the house and then coming back are noteworthy too as they are beautifully placed in the scenes where required.

While I still feel the climax could have been better explained; being away from the ghisa pita love triangles and action maar dhaad, the movie is a refreshing watch indeed.

8 out of 10 for this one...
