Just Married (2007) - Hindi Movie Review

Ranking: 3/5

Cast: Esha Deol, Mukul Dev, Fardin Khan, and so many more of them...
Director: Meghna Gulzar
Music: Pritam

The movie is about five couples who are on their honeymoon at Ooty and share the same hotel. All of them are pretty newly wed except for one who are celebrating their wedding anniversary. Together the couples take many tours and visit sites together in Ooty and get to know each other on a personable level. Slowly and steadily host of stories open up about each of them.

Abhay Sachdeva (Fardin) and Ritika Khanna (Esha): A two people bought together by the system of arranged marriage. Fardin is ready to work things out and open himself out to Esha but Esha is holding back causing a few tensions and confusions in their life.

Bikram Saluja and Perizaad Zorabian: Here with the love of his life and they seem to be totally head over heels in love with each other and are the envy of most other couples.

Kirron Kher and Satish Shah: Are here to celebrate their anniversary and always seem to be fighting each other in public. The fact is that they love each other a lot but their expression of it is just different.

Raj Zutshi and co: He has been out of the country for a long time and is living with his girlfriend of another nationality. He had proposed to her in the past but the offer was rejected...

Mukul Dev and Tarina Patel: Tarina is Mukul's sister's best friend and had an eternal crush on him eventually convinced him to marry her. But Mukul is unable to think of Tarina as anything but his sister's friend. They are working on trying to resolve their differences.

Of course towards the end of the movie everything ends well. Everyone is happy and so are you.

I saw this movie after I saw Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd. They both have similar stories and I could compare and contrast them and finally decided that this was a better story. It is a slow entertainer so be in the mood to spend time wondering why the clock is not ticking faster.
