Going to a David Dhawan movie is like …well, like coming out of a David Dhawan movie. There is no significant change in your life between the two events, unless you are the kind of person who makes radical changes to his life after watching a David Dhawan movie (we know some people like that, God bless their souls). But sometimes even a David Dhawan movie makes you think. Like, for example, is even he losing his touch?

A David Dhawan flick means a madhouse plot, rip-roaring dialogues, hilarious misunderstandings, impossible plot twists, an outrageous climax and songs with suicidal lyrics (e. g. “Hello Madam, I am your Adam”). And Shaadi No. 1 starts off according to the syllabus – with a ridiculous plot. Only, after that it slowly goes downhill. Save for some sporadic moments of fun in the first half, there’s very little of the ingenious stupidity of David Dhawan staple, and the second half actually makes you wish you had a remote.

The film starts with Raj (Fardeen Khan), Veeru (Zayed Khan) and Aryan (Sharman Joshi), 3 husbands, about to commit suicide since their wives are not giving them enough sex: religious Bhavna (Ayesha Takia) is constantly on vows of chastity, Diya (Esha Deol) is too busy with her attempts to become an actress, and Sonia (Soha Ali Khan) is constantly preoccupied with work as a lawyer.

Now as anyone successful will tell you, the first rule of committing suicide is not to get distracted, but just concentrate and finish the job before thinking of anything else. However, these 3 look around, and find an industrialist Kothari (Satish Shah) also trying to commit suicide. They save him, and he gives them high-paying jobs in his company. But remember that this is just a movie, so you should continue to prepare résumés and email them to get good jobs.

A few days later the trio want to renegotiate their salaries with Kothari and go to meet him, but find him attempting suicide again. This gives them hope and they save him again, but this time he tells them that his 3 daughters want love-marriages, while he prefers arranged marriages for them, and so he wants the 3 guys to fall in love with his girls and then break their hearts, so that the girls will forever swear off love.

The guys agree since Kothari puts their jobs on the line, but the moment they see the girls, all compunction dissolves. They merrily start romancing them, and refuse to dump them when Kothari tells them to. Which is why we at fullhyd.com always say that you should be very careful about who you are selecting to break your daughter’s heart.

The guys obviously need to two-time both their wives and their new girlfriends, and to throw a spanner in the works, in comes Lucky (Sunjay Dutt, in the most poorly-scripted and enacted role of his career). Who he is, where he comes from, how he lands in their homes, what he does and why he is in the movie is unclear to everyone, but he eats up good footage without the slightest trace of guilt.

The films hems and haws to its end, with nothing to show for it. It doesn’t even have the David Dhawan nothing in it, like we said. Sunjay Dutt is the biggest liability – neither a role nor an inclination. The rest of the film is mostly skin show. Soha Ali Khan doesn't yet show the kind of acting talent that runs in the family, and looks so much like Saif Ali Khan, you get embarrassed everytime Sharman Joshi tries to romance her. The songs are typical of the David Dhawan factory.

On the whole, this one is so totally worth a miss, it’s not a joke.

Sandade Sandadi itself was a copy of Kannada movie "Kotigalu Sir Kotigalu" which is indeed copy of hollywood 60's classic ..i don t recall the name right now..so please stop boasting about telgu movie and originallity.

The role of sanju is the sum total of kovai sarala and brahmanandam's in the telugu flick. however they had better scripted roles and had a reason for being in the movie.
