Another beautiful piece from Rajkummar.
Rajkummar Rao a.k.a Satyendra a.k.a Sattu and Aarti (Kriti Kharbanda) meet for a proposed arranged marriage. They fall in love (of course). An unexpected turn of events on their wedding night turns their world upside down. Set in the backdrop of India`s civil services, Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana explores the challenges that Satyendra and Aarti face as a middle-class couple in India.
Rajkummar Rao as always delivers a great performance in Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana. He plays an endearing and ruthless lover boy Sattu. The package comes with two avatars. He is dashing and plays both the avatars brilliantly. Kriti Kharbanda does a much better job here than her previous Hindi releases. Her character, however, keeps moping in the second half and after a point, it becomes too much. Govind Namdev (Aarti`s father) is fair. Vipin Sharma who plays Sattu`s maternal uncle leaves a mark. Manoj Pahwa, Aarti`s uncle Jogi is the best out of the supporting cast. Nayani Dixit comes next and dominates the pre-interval portion. KK Raina, Sattu`s father Jugal Kishore Mishra, underplays his part on a purpose. Navni Parihar (Aarti`s mother) and the actors playing Aarti`s brother, Sattu`s mother, Sharad, Aarti`s junior and Pramod are fine. Songs are disappointing. `Jogi` and `Main Hoon Saath Tere` are forgettable. `Tu Banja Gali Benaras Ki` is the best of the score! `Pallo Latke` is played in the end credits. Prasad Sasha`s background score is dramatic and tries to enhance the impact.
The movie is very realistic and easily relates to any bodies` life. All character specially Rajkummar and Kirti are very lively. The movie addresses many social issues in its own capacity. Moving on, but not without vengeance is at its core. A tale of love, you don`t want to miss.

Rao’s Satyendra shows two shades. He starts off as the youthful, warm-hearted young man unaware of the biases towards him as a boy child waiting to come of age. In the latter half he’s the cold-hearted and bitter officer determined to bring down the Mishras who so badly humiliated his family. Rao interprets both with expected nuance and control.A mash up of Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Bareilly Ki Barfi, Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana is one romantic drama that even Rajkummar Rao’s reliable performance cannot rescue.

Kriti Kharbanda looks cute and pretty as small town girl. Her dialect is commendable, but again the script is so clumsy that she seems to overact in few scenes. Rest of the star cast does a fair job.Overall, Shaadi Main Zaroor Aana is strictly enjoyable only in parts. Don`t expect it to be an interesting affair as it might give you a headache in the second half. Source : Visit site for more

Sinha fails to create an impact with her story, which feels like a drag 15 minutes into the film.The melodrama is too much, the pace is too slow and the second half is unbearable.In fact, this movie will test the patience of quite a few cinegoers, who might be tempted to walk out anytime in the second half. If I had to summarise the film in one sentence, it would be, `Is shaadi mein mat jaana (Don`t attend this wedding)!` Source : Visit site for more

Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana? Ignore the invite. But if you still want to give it a shot simply because of Rajkummar Rao, heed this advice: he has done, and will do, infinitely better films? Wait for the next one. Source : Visit site for more
Site: Indian Express Review By- Shubhra
The plot looks straight out of the 80s, with its implausible ‘revenge’ theme, the characters who look ‘seedha’ but are totally ‘ulta’, and a leading lady who is presented as a modern, thinking girl, but is given very little agency or a mind of her own. Her one big desire is that she wants to work after marriage. Satyendra aka Sattu’s response, smitten as he is with her pretty-in-pinkness self, is instant acquiescence. Along comes the contrarian mother-in-law, thundering ‘iss khandan hi bahu naukri nahi karegi’, or mothballed words to the effect, which have no business belonging to a film in this day and age. Naturally, things go asunder. Source : Visit site for more

Ratnaa Sinha’s Shaadi Mein Zarur Aana ticks all Bollywood boxes -- romance, drama, revenge, songs et al. But beyond the song and dance routine, the Rajkummar Rao-Kirti Kharbanda-starrer also shines light on gender inequality, dowry and corruption, holding a mirror up to us as a people.

On the whole, Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana has an interesting first half but its dull second half ruins the chances of the film at the box-office. Given its ordinary initial, the film will prove to be a flop fare. Source : Visit site for more
