Zara Hatke Zara Bachke, starring Vicky Kaushal and Sara Ali Khan, is all about kahaani ghar ghar ki. It is a mix of funny bits, overflowing emotions, and a flat ending. Laxman Utekar’s effort to make a relatable movie showcasing the housing troubles in middle-class families isn’t half bad. But it is just that. Here’s our review of Zara Hatke Zara Bachke that is not really hatke. But there’s one star that stole the show, read on to find out.
Ghar ghar ke syaape with hints of rom com
Saumya (Sara Ali Khan) and Kapil (Vicky Kaushal) are happily married and share their home with their big Indian family. And they barely get any quality time without prying eyes. This makes them realise that they need a place of their own but can’t tell the family about wanting to move out. So, they come up with a fake divorce plan so Saumya can apply under a scheme and get a house in their name.
After a lot of syaape and chakkars of government offices, the day of allotment finally comes. But fraud and money laundering scams delay the process indefinitely. And now, hell breaks loose for Kapil and Saumya as they are in a pickle. They are divorced and will have to live separately after all the trouble without knowing if this will ever come to an end.
The background score is the saving grace of this flat story
Saumya and Kapil are very much in love, and besides their cute romantic moments, the movie is a miss. There are bits of funny anecdotes and really well-acted emotional scenes, but there’s nothing hatke in this family drama. The only saving grace for this one is the background score. Arijit Singh’s Phir Aur Kya Chahiye and Sachin Jigar’s Tere Vaste and Saanjha are catchy and definitely going to be romantic chartbusters. They add an element of fun and cuteness that embodies the relationship of the lead couple throughout the story.
The real star of the movie – 5 Star chocolate
Whether it is an extremely comforting moment, a sensual one, or one where Saumya is on the floor crying her heart out, there’s one star that outshines everything–a 5 Star chocolate. Saumya loves it and her very loving husband makes sure there is no shortage of it. So, kudos to the chocolate for being one of the best supporting actors. Vicky Kaushal as Kapil is convincing, cute, and wins you over with his charm, but he’s made for sharper roles than these ones. Sara as Saumya is kinda loud, a bit excessive, and well, Sara, so there’s not much hope here. But Vicky and Sara have a cute chemistry that keeps the audience hooked to the screen. Apart from this, the rest of the cast held their ground and made for a crazy Indian family that is fun to watch. Inaamulhaq, Sushmita Mukherjee, Rakesh Bedi, Neeraj Sood, Sharib Hashmi, Himanshu Kohli, Kanupriya Pandit, and Anubbha Fatehpuria were bang on in their roles!
