What makes a tailor exceptional? There are tailors who have a skill for concealing curves, the individuals who accomplish mastery with consistent sewing, the individuals who build up a romping rapport with their clients, quick ones who can fasten a school’s worth of uniforms in a single night, and the individuals who — as we found in the latest hit, Stree — can measure women from a distance, simply by taking a gander at them.
Sharat Katariya’s Sui Dhaaga reveals to us Mauji, played by Varun Dhawan, is exceptional — only in the light of the fact that he is played by Varun Dhawan. The movie is produced by Maneesh Sharma for Yash Raj Films (YRF), starring Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan, for the first time in the history of Bollywood.
Mauji (Varun Dhawan) works at a sewing machine shop and is dealt with gravely by the owner. His significant other, Mamta conflicts with this and proposes Mauji to accomplish something of his own. On his approach to accomplish the lost sense of pride, Mauji chooses to set up a sewing machine on a street and begins another voyage of his life. Tacking the pressures in the family, Mauji and Mamta by one means or another figure out how to keep their fantasy intact. Confronting numerous hardships, there comes numerous battles as Mauji and Mamta acknowledge a job at a factory. Their work gets named by big fish in the market which takes them right to the beginning. Rest of the story portrays the ‘extraordinary’ battle of this ‘ordinary’ couple.
Sui Dhaaga is very well-acted, however films require more than flavor to remain above water. This film is as energizing as embroidery — as energizing as watching a shirt-pocket get monogrammed by a well-known logo, to be exact.
Directors appear to have understood that Dhawan looks great working discreetly, which is the reason — like in the amazing October prior this year — they make him quietly clean, make tea and sew. Sharma, meanwhile, is made to snicker. She plays an important role, the spouse who enables her better half to take off: he just dares to dream since she challenges him to. She’s a special artist, and both of them work extremely well together, with him selling the wounds while she offers the anguish.
Undeniably, the film’s best performance comes from Yamini Das, as Dhawan’s mom. She is a mother who runs her home on autopilot, and can’t relinquish instructions or kitchen utensils even when she’s crumpled from a heart attack.
Katariya’s movies have fascinating, nuanced asides and routinely great dialogues, however, in spite of everything, this film obstinately declines to get interesting. The background score expands in instrumental style when things are pitiful, and turns out to be joyfully desi at whenever things on screen ought to be commended.
All said and done, Sui Dhaaga – Made In India is a partly entertaining film with some heart-wrenching moments. Varun Dhawan stiches his performance with your souls and it’ll be difficult to fix it for quite a while now. If only there could have been more humour!
