hi Mr. barjatya i liked VIVAH very much.there are many sequences in the movie worth mentioning...and one can never forget the moment when amrita asks shahid to take a good look at her and then decide.i hope you continue to do the good work.My husband and myself;we can't see gory movies or movies that showcase despair...its too much for us.your movie gives me hope that theres still people who want to make movies such as vivah that are so deep rooted in human values.thank you
i like to watch rajshri movies because we can see theirfilm with family but most important thing is that they take indian culture into theirfilm. we can also see how much efforts he makes to give hisfilm reality.
Despite the fantastic credentials the movie does screams of the core shortcomings. first - SB's strength as a story teller lies in telling simple stories using a lot of characters. vivah aches for a lot of character who should have appeared as relatives. any love story is incomplete without an element of conflict in it. vivah does has that element(the fire and the fatal burns to the bride to be) but its not convincing enough. a much deeper coflict created by cunning relatives would have been more appropriate to the story. finally... i am still to looking forward to a female in bollywood as intelligent and as downright indian as SUMAN in MPK. POONAM doesn't even come closer to SUMAN. more intelligent and quick dialogues between prem and poonam would have made the movie more rivetting and the characters more dear to the audience. i felt audience became detached from the movie,all of a sudden, as soon as poonam starts speaking on of her overtly innocent dialogues.. she was made too ideal a girl. now whatever be the fate of the movie at the box office.. VIVAH does becomes a part of my DVD Collection. Koodos to SB for the wonderful effort. Awaiting the Next Rajshree Release.
vivah does bring back my memories of watching MPK as a 7th std student. i couldn't believe what i had just seen after watching MPK. it still remains one of the best movies ever made in bollywood for me. it was also the first movie in my DVD Collection. Vivah is the closest SB has come to MPK. the first half of the movie is phenomenal. i really appreciate SB's decision to avoid lip synching for two of the best songs in the movie; 'do anjaane' & 'milan abhi'. i wish SB had done away from lip synching for the song 'mujhe haq hai'. photography of the movie with liberal use of extreme close ups and shallow depths of the frames add to the magic of meeting of a young couple.very pleasent. songs do justice to the story and the decision to invite dada to do the music is also much appreciated. anna singh's clothes are perfect.. especially for amrita and seema biswas. the seamless editing of the movie makes watching it a pleasent experiance after watching the recent movies with almost throws you off your seat. true oldworld types.
