A romantic drama with forward-thinking themes that initially seems dated is Satyaprem Ki Katha. The social drama eventually finds its voice and becomes interesting despite initially sounding like a Gujarati promotional video.
Story of the Movie
Kartik Aaryan plays Sattu, an unemployed loafer who complains about losing his virginity and does the housework (badly) for his helpless parents in Sameer Vidwans’ Gujarat-set film. He decides to win Katha’s heart when he attends a dance and sees her performing.
Review of the Movie
This endearingly cheesy Bollywood movie is about a thirtysomething man-child who falls in love with a woman who is way out of his league. There are echoes of Richard Curtis and even Shakespeare in it. In the movie, When Sattu, a character played by Kartik Aaryan, attends a dance and witnesses Katha (Kiara Advani) performing, he decides to win her heart. However, he soon learns that she has a flash boyfriend. However, Sattu’s chances with her quickly improve after he valiantly saves her life and receives her hand in marriage from her evil father. They reveal the reasons in the movie later.
It is a vibrant, action-packed movie, with talky, dramatic scenes giving way to massive dance sequences starring hundreds of flawlessly attired performers. Some people have complained about one of the songs, a remake of the Pakistani megahit Pasoori because it sacrifices the melancholy beauty of the original for a blander, more upbeat sound. However, the majority of the music is engaging and catchy.
The central theme of the narrative is that if love doesn’t make up for all the negative aspects of your life, it isn’t the right one. The movie’s script has the impression that writer Karan Shrikant Sharma planned out the main plot before layering it on top of the rest of the narrative. Despite all the inaccurate labels the movie has been given, such as “Romantic-Drama” and “Musical,” its core is a compelling social message. The entire plot revolves around the aforementioned social message, which enhances its subtlety while others obstruct it.
Kartik Aaryan gives an honest performance as the dimwitted Sattu with a kind heart. He significantly adds to the character’s relatability to all the introverts in love out there by his inherent innocence.
The winner is Kiara Advani! Despite all the problems with the script, she seizes the chance and uses it to her advantage. Without a doubt, this is a Kiara Advani movie!
Gajraj Rao lives up to his role of Sattu’s “bro” father. Along with Shikha Talsania, who plays Sattu’s sister, Supriya Pathak’s character is the least developed.
It is not your typical rom-com-drama; it needs to say something in addition to expressing how deeply the guy and girl love each other. Glad to know it was at least here, even though it extended its welcome.
