For all those who enjoy watching Romantic sweet movies, this is right up your alley, but if you are the kind to cry when there is something emotional going on in the screen, make sure to carry a big box of tissues.. :-)

Today morning i just thought why not go for a movie and when i called the theater they had tickets for Vivaah and Dhoom2, but i wasnt too sure how Dhoom2 was going to be, and so decided to try Vivaah and from what i've read and heard about the other movie, am glad i went for Vivaah..

This movies bears a lot of traces to the series of movies that were played along Family emotions, Romantic heart wrenching dialogues, it stands apart from the current trend of movies that are emerging.. The title of the movie reads Vivaah,From Engagement to Marriage, it should be said "Once committed, i will honor my word no matter what"..

It is yet another Romantic fable,this time weaved under the master hands of Suraj Barjatya,starring Shahid Kapoor, Amrita Rao(yes, the same pair who turned headswith their kiddish looks and cute acting in Ishq Vishq),along with Anupam Kher and Alok Nath as sweet loving Dad's , and ofcourse SeemaBiswas who adds some spice to the movie...

The movie starts off with the family living in the small town of Madhupur and goes on to the marriage that is fixed between the Coy Poonam(played beautifully by Amrita),who's been brought up by her uncle and aunt (Alok Nath &Seema Biswas) and Prem(ofcourse Shahid) ,son of the business tycoon Harish Chandra(Anupam Kher, the loving father who speaks fondly of his marriage to his wife and how it was,and how he still loves her) .. It all seems to be going dandy till the twist in tale happens just before the wedding and the way it has been handled and how the story turns and goes around every incident is what makes this movie sweet..

While sitting in the theater watching the scenes unfold, one part of me expected to see a usual ending, but the other half of me was prepared for a nice surprise.. Now,am not going to spoil it for all those who've not seen the movie and ofcourse, for those who've seen it, you know what i am talking abt, right?

The dialogues are simple and its awesome to see Shahid fumble and speak in Shudh hindi, the love that blossoms between the couple is utterly romantic and makes you go Sigh~!! and the flow has been maintained very well.. Shahid is outstanding in this movie and has played a mature character and he has come across as being Vulnerable,sensitive,sweet,demure and is a perfect pair for Amrita on screen..Oh,how could i not mention Chotti's(not sure who the actress is, she plays Alok nath n Seema Biswas's daughter) non stop chatter and the way she dotes on her jiji aka Poonam.

The movie is a romantic sweet family oriented movie , but the hitches are that it is too slow, and there are scenes where we jus wish they would get on with it, be it an action or a dialogue and be prepared for the umpteen songs that crop up every couple of mins.. :)

All in all, a good movie and fun to watch amidst all the action n remake ones that are coming out
