Some of the Bollywood producers these days think that making the woman look aggressive than the man is a sure shot way to catch the attention of the moviegoers. Love Shagun is one of those movies which makes you wonder why someone would spend money on making something like this! It is a disaster in literal sense.
First of all the movie has no star power. Anuj Sachdeva is a popular name when it comes to the TV audience. But he is not a star. If you want to make a movie hit with him, then you need to have an amazing story for your movie, which Love Shagun clearly does not have.
I was actually pretty offended while watching the movie. I just came back from watching Aligarh for the second time. That movie took Indian movies to another level. Just when I was starting to feel good about Bollywood here comes Love Shagun.
Again I was back to thinking how Bollywood producers take the audiences for granted here. Love Shagun has nothing fresh to offer. I am not sure people would have watched this lame movie even if had SRK in the lead. It is what you call a “Disaster “Film.
The story is about a guy named J D who wants to live a happy life with his partner. He is yet to find a partner, though. The man is very picky when it comes to choosing his life partner. He saw his brother’s marriage falling apart in front of his eyes. He does not want that to happen to his life. He wants happiness, for that he is ready to go against his mother’s belief.
But sadly he had to marry a girl name, Tia. By the way, there is an Astrologer who predicted that his marriage will fall apart. You read the above story. Now can you believe that someone made a movie with this story in 2016? It is so regressive and kind of proves that Indian society is still stuck in a stone age. We do not have families like that in India anymore. It is embarrassing. There were few people in the theaters with me. Most of them left the theater by the half time. It was really disgusting to watch the film.
Anuj Sachdeva is not a big screen material; please do not make him the leading man of any future movies. I too would have left the theater, but did not only because the music is great. Arijit Singh is a wonder. His voice can bring life to even the lifeless Love Shagun plot.
I should tell you not to watch the movie, I mean never, not even when the movie will be on TV and you can watch for free. No you don’t deserve to be punished like that. But saying that I will also add that please listen to the songs. They will please your heart. It is one of the best music albums of 2016.
