Toh Baat Pakki Movie Review
Toh Baat Pakki (Hindi)
Rajeshwari (Tabu) is outspoken to the point of rudeness but somehow manages to stay out of trouble. Her mild husband Surinder (Ayub Khan) and two young children have no option but to accept her benign dictatorship. Because whatever Rajeshwari wants she gets! And what she wants more than anything else in the world is to find the Best husband possible for her younger sister Nisha (Yuvika). And "best" to her means, a Saxena boy with a good job, no vices and no Demands for dowry.
When final year engineering student Rahul Saxena (Sharman Joshi) walks Into her house as a tenant, Rajeshwari decides he is the best and does everything in her power to get Nisha and Rahul together. The inevitable happens: Nisha and Rahul fall in love and announce to the delighted Rajeshwari that they want to get married. The wedding preparations are in full swing when Yuvraj Saxena (Vatsal Seth) walks Into Rajeshwari's house. He too is unmarried, good looking, a junior manager with Godrej with a company car and promise of a company house Soon. And best of all - he is a Saxena! Rajeshwari can't believe her luck! She decides that Yuvraj is the best groom for Nisha.
What follows is one hilarious situation after another as the well meaning but thoughtless Rajeshwari tries to manipulate everybody around her to ensure that Nisha marries Yuvraj and not Rahul. But Rahul is a worthy adversary and gives Rajeshwari a dose of her own medicine. But has he underestimated Rajeshwari who will try every trick in the book to outwit them all?
The director canâ€™t decide if he wants to coast along with weak laughs or dive into fascinatingly flawed humans. The result is dull beyond belief, with amateur-hour plot contrivances involving missing diamond rings and botched kidnap attemptsRead more
