Ginny Weds Sunny Movie Review: Yami Gautam and Vikrant Massey's Rom-Com Could Not Make Critics Happy

Yami Gautam and Vikrant Massey’s romantic comedy Ginny Weds Sunny has dropped on Netflix. Yami does will with romantic comedies. Don’t you think? She was awesome in Bala. While the public review of the film might have been fine, the words from the critics are not so kind. Directed by Puneet Khanna, the movie skipped a theatrical release amid the pandemic. The movie follows Vikrant’s Sunny whose arranged marriage proposal is turned down by Yami’s Ginny. Sunny teams up with Ginny’s mother to win the bride-to-be over. Here’s what the critics are saying about the film. Yami Gautam Talks About Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain, Says ‘Show Has Some Fine Actors and Very Funny Content’.

Hindustan Times called the movie a long TikTok video. “It’s a bafflingly bad movie, tonally inconsistent to the point where scenes can transition from broad comedy involving paneer to sappy Ekta Kapoor drama, with a Jubin Nautiyal song playing in the background. Certain ‘twists’ are so nutty that you begin to wonder if they were put together by Kapil Sharma’s writing team, at gunpoint,” Rohan Naahar wrote.

News18’s Antara Kashyap suggested that the movie can be watched for Yami Gautam’s outfits. “Ginny Weds Sunny is a film which would do really well if it were made in the ‘90s,” Puneet wrote. “There is a term called secondhand embarrassment, and I have felt it multiple times while watching the films.”

India Times’ Renuka Vyavahare wrote, “Ginny Weds Sunny doesn’t offer an interesting take on arranged marriages, nor is it a quirky love triangle with a twist. The most appealing thing in this movie are the mouthwatering garam samosas that are served to one and all. Sadly, the film is not a samosa but a diet wala confused chivda, low on salt.”

Sangeetha Devi Dundoo, for The Hindu, wrote, “Most wedding rom-coms may not aim to create a lasting impression but try to entertain you while it lasts. But Ginny Weds Sunny felt long and tiresome even with its 125-minute duration.” Ginny Weds Sunny Movie Review: Vikrant Massey’s Comic Flair Makes This Tired Netflix Romcom With Yami Gautam Watchable.

Onhike’s in-house film critic, Sreeju Sudhakaran, wrote, “Ginny Weds Sunny is watchable only to see Massey get to do stuff Bollywood-y and do a fantastic job at that. Otherwise, the rom-com goes through the same motions that we have seen in similar films. Ginny Weds Sunny is streaming on Netflix.”

Well, as for all weddings…you cannot make all guests happy.

Kangana Ranaut Hits Out at Eros Now for Sharing Vulgar Posts on Navratri, Says ‘Streaming Platforms Are Nothing but Porn Hub’

Kangana Ranaut on Thursday described streaming platforms as porn hubs. Her assertion came as she took on the streaming platform Eros Now, for posting a few memes featuring Bollywood stars Ranveer Singh, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, which she felt were sexually explicit. Although the streaming platform subsequently deleted the memes, Kangana has shared a few screenshots along with her post. One of the memes featuring Ranveer Singh reads, “Let’s have some majama in my pajama.” Another meme featuring Salman Khan, reads, “You need a dandi to play dandiya. I have one.” Eros Now Issues Apology and Deletes ‘Offensive’ Navratri Memes of Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif and Ranveer Singh, After Twitter Trends #BoycottErosNow (View Post)

Tagging the streaming platform, Kangana tweeted from her verified account: “We must preserve cinema as a community viewing theatre experience, its more difficult to enthrall large section of audience than sexualise content for personal viewing, digitisation of art faces this major crisis, all streaming platforms are nothing but a porn hub. SHAME.” In two separate tweets, the actress shared that watching films should be done together with ones family and friends. EC Bans Streaming of Web Series ‘Modi-Journey of a Common Man’, Directs Eros Now to Remove All Connected Contents of Series’

She wrote: “And it’s not streaming platforms fault when you wear headphones and watch content in your personal space all you need is instant gratification, it’s important to watch the movies with entire family, children, neighbors basically it must be a community experience.” “Community viewing enhances our awareness when we know someone is watching what we watching we want to be who we want them to think we are, we make conscious choices, censorship of what we feed our brains n emotions is very important and censor can be our own conscience as well.”

Netizens also called out the streaming platform alleging they have hurt Indian culture and sentiments. Producer Ashoke Pandit tweeted from his verified account: “@ErosNow should take strict legal action and punish those people in their company responsible for abusing #HinduReligion because they are #Enemieswithin who can destroy the company which has contributed a lot to the entertainment industry.” Eros Now issued an apology on their official Twitter account on Thursday.

Kangana Ranaut Slams Eros Now and Other Streaming Platforms:

They issued a statement which reads: “To all those concerned, we at Eros love and respect our cultures equally. It is not and it has never been our intention to hurt anyone’s emotions. We have deleted the concerned posts and we apologise for having offended anybody’s sentiments. Thanking you, Team Eros Now.”

Kaun Banega Crorepati 12's Next Karamveer Is Padmashree Awardee Phoolbasan Yadav Of Chhattisgarh's Maa Bamleshwari Janhit Kare Samiti (Watch Video)

When women support each other, incredible things happen! And this week’s Karamveer, Chhattisgarh’s Phoolbasan Yadav, on Kaun Banega Crorepati 12 sets the right example with her exemplary work through Maa Bamleshwari Janhit Kare Samiti. She will be accompanied by none other than actress Renuka Shahane on the Hot Seat. This women-power packed episode will air on Friday, October 23. Here’s what 50 year old Phoolbasan Yadav has accomplished so far – she has been tirelessly working towards the development of economically and socially backward women of Chhattisgarh, India. Yadav’s struggle against poverty to achieve self-empowerment and later helping to empower others, serves as an inspiration in itsef. Resolute in her mission to see women break the shackles of patriarchy, Yadav, through her self-help groups, not only just aids women in being economically self-sufficient by creating employment, but also looks after the village needs like sanitation, health, water and also spreads awareness against child marriage. Apart from that, she has also established a Mahila Fauj to mobilise a de-addiction movement in villages to keep a check on cases of domestic violence. Kaun Banega Crorepati 12: This Week’s Karamveer Are Gyanendra Purohit and Monica Purohit Who Aid Children With Special Needs.

When Mr. Bachchan welcomed Phoolbasan Yadav, she went on to add, “Firstly, I would really want to thank everyone. It feels like a dream to be here on this platform and I would like to thank Sony channel for this opportunity. They say that if you have dedication and the will power, you can achieve everything. I would like to thank my Guru dev because of whom I am here today. I would also like to thank my team of 2 lakh women from Maa Bamleshwari and every household from Chhattisgarh. Gaon ki matti phenkne wali aur gobar uthane wali mahila, Bol na to nahi aata lekin karm karna aata hai, zindagi jeena kaise hai. Mahilaon ko kaise zindagi jeeni chchiye wo aata hai. Pehle gaiyya, bakri charate the… ab mahilaon ko charate hain, zindagi jeene ke liye.” Kaun Banega Crorepati 12: Runa Saha Creates History, Becomes the 1st Contestant to Reach Hot Seat Without Playing Fastest Fingers First on Amitabh Bachchan’s Quiz Show (Watch Video).

Watch the Video Below:

When Amitabh asked her how she understood the nitty-gritties involved in finances and running a successful organization, Yadav went on to promptly reply, “If you stay alone, these things will never cross your mind. For example, if you hit a cat or a dog with a stone, they will run away. But try pelting a beehive with a stone. The bees will attack you. This is the might of a sangathan!” With such simplicity she explained that when you are alone, you are scared… but together, you can become a collective force which is unstoppable.

Impressed by the perspective and the determination of Phoolbasan Yadav, both Mr. Bachchan and Renuka Shahane amidst a thunderous round of applause, celebrated her victories. Renuka Shahane, who accompanied Phoolbasan Yadav on the Hot Seat championing her cause, said, “Hearing her story, even though I am well-educated, I feel bad, because having been educated, why didn’t I ever think of doing something for the society just as courageously as her (Phoolbasan). Maybe after this show, I would want to do something.” She also added, “Aaj do lakh mahilayein aapke sath judi hui hain, ab se do lakh ek… mujhe bhi jod dijiye usmai!”

On the upcoming episode, viewers will get to know about the efforts of 50-year-old Yadav, a Padma Shri awardee who has been a beacon of hope for the development of economically and socially backward women of the state of Chhattisgarh, relentlessly since the past 19 years. Watch Phoolbasan Yadav share her nuggets of experiences and achievements with Renuka Shahane, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan and all of us.
