A short Older man and a shy young girl are both ready to eat the Motichoor laddu of marriage but will their dreams shatter Chaknachoor, that is what this Motichoor Chaknachoor movie review will tell you
Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays Pushpinder, the employed in Dubai 40-year-old prime cut, virgin given his desperately looking for a bride. Athiya Shetty plays Anita, or Ani, whose only ambition in life is to get married in the abroad.
Of course, it is a Jodi made in heaven or is it. Not really every step of the way Motichoor Chaknachoor makes it a point to underline how the pair is mismatched. However, if you are a big Bollywood romcom fan you will know all is well that ends well and this one shall too.
The theme is laudable the pairing of two very unlike individuals and how they get on with the act of getting married, but that is only one end. At the other end, there is a spotlight on the regressive nature of the girl from the 21st century who doesn’t have what it takes to go on a trip abroad. I think we have grown up from there.
That apart this film is overflowing with middle to old age parents obsessing about getting their children married. Settling them down is the central theme of this film that doesn’t seem to ever go beyond that matchmaking game.
As always the straight-faced Nawazuddin is brilliant and Athiya Shetty does light up the screen with her presence but that apart this film doesn’t go beyond the stereotyped middle-class small-town India and that is its shortcoming. it stays in the familiar in spite of having a brilliant concept to play with and one if not two brilliant actors.
Oops I almost forgot one of the big reasons Ani wants to get married is to take selfies in the abroad and post them on her social media to make her friends jealous
For this effort, Id give Motichoor Chaknachoor movie a star rating: 1/5 one star on five
