Total Siyappa is an upcoming Bollywood film starting Vicky Donor fame “Yami Gautam” and Pakistani singer, musician and actor “Ali Zafar”. Total Siyappa is written by Neeraj Pandey who earlier directed two good films named “A Wednesday” & “Special Chabbis”. Film is set in London on an interesting topic of Indian girl and Pakistani boy marriage. Indian Punjabi girl Asha (Yami Gautam) falls in love with a Pakistani rockstar Aman (Ali Zafar). Asha introduces Aman to her family, that’s where trouble begins. Asha’s mother played by Kirron Kher is aware of the fact that Aman is a Muslim but as soon as she comes to know that he is Pakistani, she gets hyper. How other family member reacts in an interesting way; is the plot of the film.
Controversial issue of an Indian Punjabi girl wants to marry Muslim Pakistani boy is the theme for this romantic comedy film. Most of the film seems to be based on one day event of Aman meeting Asha’s family. Final dialogue in the film trailer which is “Shahid Afridi se toh hum bhi pareshaan hai” is simply superb. There is one issue in the film parallel to the marriage of Aman and Asha which is the no-working marriage of Asha’s mother and father played by Kirron Kher and Anupam Kher; who are the real life couple as well. Total Siyappa is set to release on 31st January 2014.
Budget of the film is not too high, so it relies more on the dialogues, interesting events and narration. Yami Gautam & Ali Zafar both are looking good together in the film’s trailer. Film is being inspired from the real life of Indians and Pakistani living abroad. They won’t face much of border issues as they face while living in their home country. What they face other than that is what film is all about, from marriage point of view? If you like watching films based on new and interesting topic, give this one a shot.
Verdict: - Predictably interesting watch for interesting topic and narration
Ratings: - 3 / 5 Stars
