Toh Baat Pakki – Movie Preview
Marriages may be made in heaven but the protagonist of Toh Baat Pakki would leave no stone unturned and no trick unused to make sure her younger sister gets the best groom.
The movie, directed by Kedar Shinde, marks the return of Tabu to the silver screen after a gap of two years. The star cast also includes Sharman Joshi, Uvika Chaudhary and Vatsal Seth.
Rajeshwari (Tabu) is outspoken to the point of rudeness, but somehow she manages to stay out of trouble. Her mild husband Surinder (Ayub Khan) and two young children have no option but to accept her benign dictatorship. Because whatever Rajeshwari wants, she gets. And what she wants more than anything else in the world is to find the best husband possible for her younger sister Nisha (Uvika). And best to her means a Saxena boy with a good job, no vices and no demand for dowry.
When the final year engineering student Rahul Saxena (Sharman Joshi) walks into her life as a tenant, Rajeshwari decides he’s the best and does everything in her power to get Rahul and Nisha together.
The inevitable happens. Nisha and Rahul fall in love, and announce to the delighted Rajeshwari that they want to get married. The wedding preparations are in full swing when Yuvraj Saxena (Vatsal Seth) walks into Rajeshwari’s house. He too is unmarried, good looking and a junior manager with Godrej, with a company car and promise of a company house soon. And best of all, he’s a Saxena.
Rajeshwari can’t believe her luck. She concludes that Yuvraj is the best groom for Nisha. What follows is one hilarious situation after another as the well meaning but thoughtless Rajeshwari tries to manipulate everybody around her to ensure that Nisha marries Yuvraj and not Rahul. However, Rahul is a worthy adversary and gives Rajeshwari a dose of her own medicine. But has he underestimated Rajeshwari who will try every trick in the book to outwit them all.
Featuring music by Pritam and choreography by Ahmed Khan, ‘Toh Baat Pakki’ is set to release on February 19.
