The latest offering from ZEE5 has a shocking yet fun title – 14 Pheres. If this gives you confidence in something and gets you excited about the product then don’t worry, we assure you will have enough fun while watching it. 14 Phere is a melodious rom-com turned into goofy and hilarious wedding celebrations that will keep you entertained for almost two hours. Also, it will make you feel something about the honor killing and old-fashioned traditions of our past generations.
The film revolves around Sanjay Singh (Vikrant Massey), a ‘Rajput’ from Bihar and Aditi Karwasara (Kriti Kharbanda), a ‘Jat’ from Jaipur and their love story, adventure and adventure for two planned weddings. The story has a lot of power to grab your attention from the first scene to the last. There are so many hilarious situations that will make you laugh and there are also some emotional moments with family value. The film tries to give a message against the age-old traditions of casteism in weddings that take place in rural parts of the country. Thankfully, it focuses on using corporate-minded love-birds in an urban style by attempting to keep their parents happy.
Kriti Kharbanda has never looked so beautiful in any film. She is a stunner in every frame with beautiful looks and cute expressions. Vikrant Massey keeps getting better and better with every film and 14 Pheres is no different. Gauahar Khan plays off her regular glam-image, but she is still good enough to compete against a senior actor like Jameel Khan, who is in top form from the very first scene. Rest of the cast are also brilliant and share good scenes there. The music is good as per the circumstances and vocal value and the lyrics for the same are not out of context.
Cinematography, background score, screenplay and dialogues are good. Devanshu Singh makes every situation good with his presence of mind in the director’s chair. Though some of the scenes in the first part go wrong and purposeless, the film manages to cover that in the second part. Overall, a fun ride for couples and family spectators that should be enjoyed by all the three generations together.
Rating – 3.5/5*
