Baankey Ki Crazy Baraat Review: When actors like Sanjay Mishra, Rajpal Yadav and Vijay Raaz who have great comic timing, come together on screen, you’re surely in for guaranteed laughs. That’s exactly what Baankey Ki Crazy Baraat does by bringing the trio together. Hearing the term ‘proxy wedding’ itself will bring a smile on your face. Kudos to the makers of Baankey Ki Crazy Baraat to come up with a really entertaining situation – based comedy with a shaadi backdrop. Actors like Rakesh Bedi, Satyajeet Dubey, Tia Bajpai, Pankaj Jha and Anil Mange have also done a very good job. In Baankey Ki Crazy Baraat, Baankey’s family face difficulties getting him married. The astrologer from whom they seek advice informs them that there is a problem with Baankey’s kundali and in order to ensure he leads a happy married life, he shouldn’t be present at his own wedding as the groom.
Thus comes up an idea of a proxy wedding where the groom would be someone else only for the period of the wedding. Bankey’s family decides to keep this a secret and arranges for the wedding. No one apart from close members of Bankey’s family know about what’s cooking and thus starts off a fun and roller coaster ride of the wedding journey with a lot of funny and tricky situations even as the substitute groom and the real bride fall in love. What really works for Baankey Ki Crazy Baraat is that it stays true to it’s genre and also stays simple and believable. There’s a connect with the characters and you can feel their emotions. You will also be able to relate with the characters with a sense that somewhere or the other you’ve actually met with people with similar characteristics and mannerisms.
With it’s simplistic approach, you may take time to get used to the marginally slow paced first half but the second half absolutely makes up for it and ensures that the movie keeps you entertained. Baankey Ki Crazy Baraat has been shot in some really beautiful rural locations of Himachal Pradesh. Another interesting fact is that some of the locals from the area were given a chance to do small roles in Baankey Ki Crazy Baraat which is really interesting. Watch this movie with your family and friends. It’s nice and clean entertainment and will sure make you laugh.
