Cast: Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma
Duration: 2 hrs 16 mins
The first half of ‘Sui Dhaaga’ is a stitched to perfection. Both Anushka and Varun shine in their roles and get under the skin of their characters really well. In fact, this can be considered Anushka’s best performance till date.
The movie starts with Mauji (Varun Dhawan) having a stable job in a shop, but the catch is that he has to face a lot of disrespect. Mamta (Anushka) doesn’t want him to continue and inspires him to start his own sewing business. Despite having excellent word of mouth publicity, Mauji and Mamta face realistic challenges that break your heart. There’s that Anushka Sharma scene where she cries (the one that’s made into a meme).
They’re tears of joy, and this writer did feel a lump in his throat while watching it. The script and the dialogues are nuanced and capture the authenticity of middle-class life extremely well. The second half is set up really well, and we really wish there’s a happy ending to Mauji and Mamta’s life.
