Rating: **

There are two brothers played by the talented duo Jimmy Sheirgill and Pulkit Samratm who keep knocking  into an assortment  of  girls from Haryana and Delhi as they plough along  a plot that pulsates a populated  energy. That in a nutshell, is Veere Ki Wedding(VKW) one  more film about  a shaadi, a baraatiand other challenges that Man faces when wooing a Woman.

Balli(Jimmy Sheirgill) has proven  singularly  unlucky in love. How do we know? He says so and even puts his mouth where his money is by dating women who don’t seem  interested in him. One such lady Rinki(Payal Rajput) keeps talking constantly about her ex-boyfriend  until Sheirgill known to have infinite patience with difficult women(in Happpy Bhaag Jayegi his bride ran away to Pakistan  from the mandap) quietly asks, “Aap chup chapjayengi yaa main aapko yahan  se neeche phekwa doon.”

There  is  a  female cop(Yuvika  Choudhary) who has the  hots for Balli. Swooping down to raid the wrong venue she is  meant to be  a laugh riot.Laugh at Balli’s misdaventures with women if you must. His kid brother Veere(Pulkit Samrat) is worse. He is your local do-gooder who helps distressed people .

 If only Veer knew of  the audiences’ distress.  Though well-meaning and innocuous VKW is like  a gust  of hot wind hitting your face  in mid-Summer. Every characters speaks with a bombastic guffaw, as if to remind us that  this is indeed a film that’s supposed to make us laugh. Characters  keep barging in incessantly,and newer ways of generating  laughter are sought desperately.

In one early episode Kriti Kharbanda who executed herself with restrained humour in her last romcom Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana,  pulls  out all stops pelting kulfi bars at  people on  the road. Her father played by Satish Kaushik gets hysterical whenever someone mentions  the name ‘Prabhu’.  Maybe he couldn’t get Prabhdheva’s dance steps  right in some shaadi.

It’s hard to tell when Kaushik  is aggravated , since each one of the  277 characters(or is it 278?) tends to get hysterical sooner rather than later.I did try to keep up with the torrent of characters. But soon gave up. There are only that many gatecrashers  you can check at  a wedding.

 By the time the rudderless humour express chugs to its wedding climax there is a Haryanvi Mamajee and his brainless sidekick running around the venue probably in search  of a  script.

 Do wake us up when they find  it.
