“Guess what the word for orgasm in Hindi is?’ asks the visibly zonked-out Shikha Tilsania as her friends Kareena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhaskar and Sonam Kapoor giggle and guffaw in a car that seems custom-built for naughty activities.
The trailer of Veere Di Wedding which is just out, sparkles with a chic chick splendor. Indeed this seems to be the first bonafide chick flick from Bollywood’s mainstream cinema. And it bubbles and percolates with internal combustion. Yup, all four girl-women seem ready to explode with a a raunchy indignation.
One of the girls , the aforementioned Rani of Raunch Shikha Talsania complains she hasn’t had sex for a year.Kareena Kapoor Khan is disgusted and embarrassed by her future in-law’s vulgar display of ostentatious wealth . Sonam Kapoor seems to be stuck with a jerk whom she refers to as a ‘bahenc..d’
Yes, to Veere Di Wedding goes the dubious distinction of getting the extremely upmarket and chic Sonam to use a filthy Hindi expletive.Congratulations are in order.
Must be very liberating. The trailer of Veere De Wedding seems to go by fashionable notions of empowerment…girls who swear? Box ticked.Girls who drink? Box ticked.Girls who treat their boyfriends/ spouses like cretinousvermins? Box ticked. Girls who think marriage is a pain in the purse? Box ticked. Girls who discuss orgasms? Box ticked.
Although Veere De Wedding plays it by the rulebook, there is nonetheless plenty of verve and vitality in the interactive swirls that the trailer takes in its tumultuous lifespan. All the four actresses give a sharp spin and a tantalizing twirl to their buddy-buddy baatein. It’s a delight to see the feisty fraternization among the four enticing actresses.
For the rest, the film does seem to be a bit trite around the edges. But then so what? At least these girls seem to be having fun. We can only hope to join in when the film releases on June 1.
