Vidya Balan is one of the finest actors of Bollywood, she makes us fall in love with her and this time is no less. Tumhari Sulu is a sweet and fresh film, which will not disappoint you at any moment!
She comes second in the lemon spoon race but when the other contenders are gone, she stands on the first position of the winners’ podium and asks his husband to click her photo – yeh hai Hamari Sulu aka Sulochna (Vidya Balan). She dreams big as every other being but she’s trapped in the responsibilities that are gifted with the tag of being a woman. Supporting the crazy chaos created by Sulu, Ashok (Manav Kaul) tries his best to always be there for her. Being Sulu, she alters the mishmash of her life! Watch for how she juggles everything like a magician.
When the director is also the writer of the movie, it becomes really easy to fulfill the vision on screen. Suresh Triveni aced both the roles with utmost sincerity. He managed to make Sulu so relatable to us. The movie has many such sequences which will make you wonder how Bollywood has missed such simple, smile- inspiring moments. Needless to say, the movie is amazingly thought and executed.
The woman of the hour, Vidya Balan rocked this one and she made us realise how badly we have missed her. She is the skin and soul of Sulu, I believe no one else could've done better than her. She takes the emotional scenes to another level which could've gone wasted if not for her. Manav Kaul plays a supportive husband as well. There was needed a performance like Manav competing the mammoth one by Vidya Balan. Neha Dhupia fits in perfectly as a head of the radio station and Malishka Mendonsa is as beautiful as her voice. Vijay Maurya leaves a memorable mark with his hilarious performance as a creative (literally!) producer.
The debutant directed and spilled magic all over the silver screen, he handled the narration of a middle- class family with perfection. At no point he’s glorifying Sulu, he has just taken some enduring moments stitched them together gifting us a movie worth our time and money. Moving on to the songs of the movie, Rafu being the best one, Hawa Hawai 2.0 is choreographed gracefully. Every song is situational and not forced for the sake of it. Special mention for Karan Kulkarni, he has given the background score for the film.
Directed by Suresh Triveni, Tumhari Sulu deserves 6/10. Don't miss out on this one because if not a masterpiece, Tumhari Sulu is a monumental piece by the master Vidya Balan. Watch it to fall in love with Vidya all over again.
