‘Saroj Ka Rishta’ looks like a half-incomplete effort to make a comedy around a girl who dies thinking about her weight to appeal to a man.
Saroj, a confident young girl, decides to go through a body change, in the hope that the man she has been in love with during her school days will eventually marry her. Whether she succeeds in this effort or not is an important part of the story. Saroj Sharma (Sahna Kapoor) is on the heavy side of the weighing scale, but is very happy with the way he is. She is confident and confident, who attracts the attention of a gym-trainer and photographer Shantanu (Gaurav Pandey). However, Saroj decides to go through a body change to please her childhood love, Vikram (Randeep Rai) and marry her. When Vikram reaches Ghaziabad unannounced, his plans go wrong. Saroj marries Vikram or accepts Shantanu’s love, the rest of the story.
At the ideological level, ‘Saroj Ka Rishta’ had sufficient scope for light moments, plenty of humor and a good number of emotional curves, which could raise the message that the film was to pursue. However, what we see in the story is a series of slow, convenient and fun moments, and there are some twists and turns that have recently been improved by TV serials. The screenplay and dialogue could lead the story to be taken up several places. Instead, they pull it down through most parts of the runtime, which seems tedious. The film could clearly do with a better editing.
Effervescently played by Sanah Kapur, Saroj makes you laugh because of her demeanour and behaviour, and with her razor-sharp tongue she also makes you think about the kind of society we live in. That is where ‘Saroj Ka Rishta’ scores. The relationship shown between father and daughter in the film has been portrayed in a funny as well as emotional manner.
The father of Saroj, played by Kumud Mishra, is so much attached to his daughter that he wants her to marry a man who agrees to stay in their house post marriage so that the father is not separated from her. There are many scenes between father and daughter that will bring tears to your eyes. Kumud Mishra, who fits perfectly into the role of Saroj’s father, enacts his part brilliantly and shows his range and caliber as an actor.
‘Saroj Ka Rishta’ excels in all departments. The lyrics, for starters, are meaningful; the music and background score give a different high to the movie. The thoughtfully written dialogues touch your heart. The cinematography makes each and every frame look very rich and provides great context to the wholesome experience of watching the film. Apart from Sanah Kapur and Kumud Mishra, Gaurav Pande and Randeep Rai also excel in their roles and leave an impact on the audience. Supriya Pathak, Sanah’s real-life mother, has also played an important cameo in the film. Needless to say, she leaves a mark with just a few minutes of her appearance in the film.
Overall, it can be said that once you leave the theatre after watching an entertaining and socially relevant film, you’ll have a big smile on your face and great satisfaction in your heart.
