Is She Raju? Story: The story is set in Mumbai wherein an aspiring small-town story writer Manav (Ansh Gupta) comes to big city looking for a work opportunity falls in love with his senior colleague Raju (Aditi Bhagat) who is content editor that soon escalates into embarrassing moments in their life at a young age resulting in confusion, chaos, and melodrama.
Is She Raja? Review: ‘Is She Raju’ is an urban comedy from the word goes. The movie has an old charm reminding you of movies like Har Ek Friend Kameena Hota Hai. What starts as a television story writer Manav turns into his own Love story with hilarious complications.
Ansh Gupta is brilliantly adorable in the lead role; his comic timing and dialogue delivery are excellent. Aditi Bhagat looks charming and has succeeded to impress the audience. Both Saurabh Sharma and yashpal Saini are fantastic in their supporting role and perform their character as a Manav’s roommate is effortless. The overall intent of the director and the almost clean and ‘Family viewing’ nature of comedy can easily overshadow the minor flaws.
Music and dialogues are great and that is one of the reasons to enjoy the movie in theaters. The plot is unique and the screenplay is crisp and tight delivering engaging moments for the audience. Ansh Gupta and Aditi Bhagat make a great screen pair and their chemistry is commendable.
Abbas Khan and Amit Behl in their comic avatar add beauty to the film with their humor and performance are a delight to watch.
Urban comedy is strongly written to get you to the right entertainment. Director Rahul Kumar Shukla does a fine job of throwing a bunch of quirky characters in unusual situations. The first half is swift and packed with funny moments that end in an unpredicted twist. The second half too is marked by quite a few laugh-out-loud moments. But what really makes the movie an entertaining watch is the nuanced writing and its execution.
This is a fresh try and unique film and it guarantees you will love this film its clean entertainer and emerges as a winner in the department of comedy and entertainment.
