When the whole world is racing ahead, and especially when cinema is raising ahead in time, one can always count on Rajshri to bring Indian cinema to its true platform. A cinema in which emotions are not expressed in words, where every scene is enriched with Indian culture and tradition, and all this is enveloped in a story that touches your heart. Ek Vivah Aisa Bhi carries all these traits and hails from the production house that gave us the all time classics such as Hum Aapke Hai Kaun, Hum Saath Saath Hai and Vivah. This time around, carrying the proud baton of this house is debutant director Kaushik Ghatak.
Isha Koppikar and Sonu Sood arrive on the Rajshri scene in this emotionally burdened venture to turn their careers around. And might we say, so they did in the lovable and admirable characters of Chandini and Prem (some things never change).
Chandini’s characters follows in the Rajshri tradition of heroines, such as Nisha from HAHK and Poonam from Vivah. She’s innocent yet empowered, although this time around the empowered trait has been kicked up a notch. Chandani is the eldest of her three siblings and one unfortunate day, whilst still gathering the dreams of her future with her beloved Prem, fate snatches all that she has known away from her. When her father unexpectedly passes away, Chandani is made to choose between a perfect life that is only a step away and the responsibilities that she cannot walk away from. Her cultured nature and loving personality compel her to choose the latter and so begins Chandani’s journey as the second parent to her two younger siblings. But what about Prem? Is he left behind in the dark or does he walk into another pretty horizon away from Chandani? The answer is neither. Ek Vivah Aisa Bhi is here to give a new meaning to love, commitment and sacrifice. To know just how this happens, race to a cinema near you now!
Kaushik Ghatak who is an established name in Indian television brings all the traits of Indian television to the big screen, and may we say it is rather evident. The director does, however, manage to keep away from clich
