Running Shaadi Movie Review

 

1.) Rating: 2/5. Review by Reza Noorani, Site: Times of India

Growing up we’ve all heard of stories about couples running away and getting married. While we may not hear a lot about it recently, at least in big cities, in smaller towns it still is a phenomenon. Until the first half, the film convinces you about their absurd business concept. But it’s in the second half when the film really takes off and takes you along for a joyride.

 

2.) Rating: 2.5/5. Review by Surabhi Redkar on Koimoi

Running Shaadi comes across as a good comic caper that tackles modern day relationships in an interesting manner. It could make up for a fun watch for those who like Jab We Met, Band Baaja Baraat kind of films.

 

3.) Rating: 1.5/5. Review by Saibal Chatterjee on NDTV Movies.

It carries the ugly scars of a last-minute court verdict. Not only has the film had a part of its title (.com) shaved off as a result of a brand infringement complaint from a real world matrimonial site with a similar name, the makers have also mandatorily had to bleep out every mention of the word ‘dotcom’. The visible excisions, needless to say, aren’t a pretty sight.

 

4.) Rating: 1/5. Review by Shalini Langer on Indian Express

That leaves only one reason to watch Running Shaadi – to see how filmmakers dealt with being told at the last minute to drop dotcom from its title because a certain website complained. Everytime the original title figures in the film, the lips are blurred out. It’s unsettling. Roy couldn’t have sent out a stronger message, even if unintended.

 

5.) Rating: 2.5/5. Review by Aarti Iyengar on Bollywood Life

With so many serious and hard-hitting films that have come up recently, this would blight-hearted red comedy to have a relaxed weekend. Apart from that, wouldn’t really recommend it.

6.) Rating: 3/5. Review by Vickey Lalwani on Spotboye

I never like to go into the details of the story when I review a film and today is no exception, but I cannot refrain giving you a hint that Running Shaadi looks- at least faintly if not strongly- inspired by Jab We Met, Tamasha & Co- you know this Aaj Kal ka trend where one person in the relationship is somewhat not sure about his feelings and gets a clarion call only when he sees a third person in the picture.

 

7.) Rating: 2/5. Review by Rohit Vats on Hindustan Times

Taapsee’s character is unapologetic about her body and desires. She buys condoms and has an opinion about abortion and love, something Bollywood shies away from showing because it still wants its heroines in a particular mould which suits the ‘family audience’. Similarly, Amit Sadh’s Bharose shows a progressive attitude, but remains rooted. A mixture of what we are and what we want.

 

8.) Rating: 1.5/5. Review by Bollywood Hungama

On the whole, RUNNING SHAADI is an entertaining film, but only in parts. The film suffers from the lack of an interesting drama. At the Box-Office, the film will be an average fare.

 

9.) Rating: 2.5/5. Review by Madhuri on Filmi Beat

Running Shaadi could have made for a good short film instead. Stretching the runtime to 114 minutes doesn’t serve the purpose. Nevertheless, it still makes up a partly entertaining watch.

 

10.) Rating: 2.5/5. Review on Gulf News

But it’s disappointing that the story couldn’t sustain the momentum and the promise that it showed initially. It’s also annoying to see characters bleep out the word ‘.com’ in their dialogues due to a lawsuit against the title, which was RunningShaadi.com at first.
