Review ★★★★
Band Baaja Baaraat

Here comes the cliche! This is a movie about two friends who start a wedding company and the girl falls for the guy and sometime later in the movie he falls for her too. Pretty typical there. But really great character work in this story - Maneesh Sharma does such a great job transitioning from unemployed goofball to wedding planning king to angry ex-partner to surprisingly good hearted. One of my favorite thing about these bigger movies is how multifaceted the characters are throughout the length of the movie. I really loved Band Baaja Baaraat because it didn’t seem too western in any regard - it was all the colorful fun of northern India weddings.
