Mr. and Mrs. Mahi Movie Review

When Mahendra Singh Dhoni enters a stadium, the crowd erupts with chants of “Mahi, Mahi, Mahi!” But in the film “Mr. and Mrs. Mahi,” when our protagonist, also nicknamed Mahi, steps into the stadium of life, everyone around him seems to ask, “When will you get your act together?”

Hello, everyone! Welcome to Filmee Keeda, your go-to sp for all things Bollywood. I’m your host and friend, FilmeeBoy, and today we’re diving into the movie “Mr. and Mrs. Mahi.” But before we start, let me ask you: Why do you enjoy watching Bollywood movies? Is it for the story, the acting of your favorite actors, or just the masala? Let us know in the comments!

We’ll be reviewing “Mr. and Mrs. Mahi” based on these three aspects. The film stars Rajkummar Rao and Janhvi Kapoor in lead roles, both nicknamed Mahi. The storyline is simple but clichéd: A father wants his son to take over the family business, but the son dreams of a luxurious, star-studded life. Sounds familiar? Well, that’s because it is.

The story revolves around cricket, a theme that’s always relevant in Bollywood. Within the first 30 minutes, you’ll find yourself wondering whether to laugh or cry at this combo. Enter Janhvi Kapoor, who comes from a middle-class family and dutifully follows her father’s wishes. With the same nickname, you’d think their marriage would be easy, right? Wrong. The fun begins when Rajkummar Rao wins Janhvi’s heart by confessing that he’s a failure, urging her to leave him. But she finds this so cute that she insists on marrying him anyway.

GEN-Z audiences might react with a resounding “What the heck?” But the couple ties the knot, aligning their preferences. The real journey begins as Mr. Mahi commits to making Mrs. Mahi the next cricket star. Personally, I think the film should have been titled “Mahi Coaches Mahi.”

The film peaks in the early stages, followed by an emotional drama between a couple chasing their dreams post-marriage. The acting is nothing extraordinary, with Kumud Mishra’s portrayal of the stern father being more convincing than Rajkummar Rao‘s unchanging hairstyle over five years. Janhvi Kapoor, on the other hand, delivers a decent performance as Mrs. Mahi. The film’s masala is as bland as the seasoning in a patient’s khichdi.

Despite the movie’s shortcomings, there’s one redeeming quality: the message that with your partner by your side, the sky’s the limit. However, spending 140 minutes to grasp this lesson seems excessive. Thus, I give “Mr. and Mrs. Mahi” 2 out of 5 stars. Goodnight and farewell!

Hi, this is your Filmee Boy! About me? Well, I am a "Bakchod" who performs way better than "Thugs of Hindustan" by firing "Andhadhun" words. I am the "Padman" who has always stood at "102 Not Out". Last time when you were being a "Fanney Khan" at one of your "Veere Di Wedding", I was ruling the "Baazaar" of Bollywood by singing "Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga".
