Shaandaar is a breeze of fresh air,A good change from the typical DDLJ kind of Romcoms
So,I watched Shaandaar and surprisingly i quite enjoyed it..
It is completely a different kind of romcom,i have never watched such a weird insane romcom ever.Kudos to Vikas for at least trying something strange. The animation parts worked for me really well,the emotional bonding between the father-daughter duo Pankaj-Alia was top notch.Alia looked great and performed with great confidence,matched steps to step with Shahid while dance no. which is'nt that easy for most.Shahid is endearing,plays his part with very well.Shahid's sis Sanah Kapoor making debut with this film looks cute n charming and does well.
It is a fantasy romcom,has got a Disney films' feel attached to it..I was certainly in awe of the beautiful locations,grand sets and the way it has been shot.
But the 2nd half is'nt that good,too much silliness gets involved and the film does'nt proceeds where you would have wanted it to.
As far as box office is concerned,I am doubtful about its prospect.There were people walking out who did'nt quite liked it,though there were plenty of laughs heard but still it is a kind of movie which won't go with everyone.As the credits rolled out and Vikas bahl's name flashed as the director,i heard voices saying "Maaro isko,yahi hai"
Overall:3.5/5 stars from me..a good enough family watch.
