Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan’s Sui Dhaaga has been quite popular, especially after Anushka’s memes dominated social media with rib-tickling pictures.
The film itself contains an inspirational story of a tailor who, along with his dedicated wife, transforms from an unemployed man to a self-employed tailor. While the storyline itself shows us an incredible journey of a determined man and woman, the heartfelt performances leave no stones unturned in doing justice to the life of a normal tailor.
Mauji (played by Varun Dhawan) is a descendant of a family of tailors, however, he is forbidden to work as one. Mauji is married to a small town girl named Mamta (played by Anushka Sharma). While their relationship seems almost non-existent due to making every day ends meet and paying for his mother’s hospital bills, the film deeply shows the feelings of the couple who are drawn together with love and the determination of supporting each other – emotionally or physically.
The film describes how Mauji, on Mamta’s consistent request, breaks the rule made by his father (played by Raghubir Yadav) to forbid taking up tailoring and works to create his own brand.
Although Sui Dhaaga seems like a simple story, the script and acting make it a powerful, heart-touching film to watch. It follows the cliche transformation of a couple who turns from poor to rich, however, gives the audience something simple yet out of the box experience. It hits the right notes with each scene. Meanwhile, the character, although a bit dramatic, are well-described and bring out the necessary feelings needed for a successful storytelling. It makes the audience empathize with Mauji who gets mistreated by his employer.
After receiving constant humiliation, the director makes sure to present a crying Mamta, who carries the audience’s emotions by encouraging Mauji. She acts as a pillar of support for Mauji, who doesn’t give up in the face of hardships or while fighting for his rights. Although in other stories there is a conflict between the couple, this story shows the undying dedication of husband and wife, who manage to cross all hurdles together.
Anushka Sharma, with her subtle character, manages to take the audience everywhere she goes. Meanwhile, Dhawan proves that he has come a long way in the field of acting.
Director Katariya also ensures the role of a woman in the family – an unforgettable aspect that guides the family with her wise mind and determination. It sort of makes Sui Dhaaga an essential feminist film.
We still think that if it weren’t for Mamta’s encouragement, Mauji wouldn’t have succeeded. However, the film closely shows the two walking together as partners, where no character leaves the other behind or overtakes them. It is truly an inspiration for couples.
Overall, the film portrays an inspiring story that teaches the audience to never give up, while also showing how two married people should be with each other. Which isn’t a physically demanding or passionate relationship, but something that holds an emotional understanding and growth. Check out the trailer below:
