The super combination of Ayushman-Bhumi as lead and a Vicky Donor feel to the film makes me look forward to Shubh Mangal Saavdhan ever so eagerly.

Dum Laga Ke Haisha was such a delight! Ayushman Khurana and Bhumi Pednekar brought everyday characters alive.

And Vicky Donor made a traditionally inappropriate subject seem absolutely appropriate. In fact, the girl's father from Shubh Mangal Saavdhan reminded me of the quirky grandmother from Vicky Donor. Also, the kind of turmoil that the couple seems to be in, has a similar texture as that faced by the Vicky Donor couple - everything is going well, but...

Same goes for the music of all the three films. Having watched at least 2 movies a week, every week for the last 10 years. Very rarely do I feel this – this film looks extremely promising! Worry not, I have over a week to temper my expectations.

Shubh Mangal Saavdhan releases on 1 September, 2017.
