TIKU WEDS SHERU is an avoidable fare.

Tiku Weds Sheru Review {1.5/5} & Review Rating

TIKU WEDS SHERU is the story of two crazy characters. Shiraz Khan Afghani aka Sheru (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) lives in Mumbai and works as a junior artist. Alongside, he’s also a pimp, with fellow junior artist Anand (Mukesh Bhatt). He had taken Rs. 10 lakhs loan to make a film from Shahid bhai (Vipin Mishra). He fails to return the money as he never makes the film. Sheru is asked to repay the loan or else, Shahid’s men threaten to take over his Mumbai house. Meanwhile, Sheru’s uncle from Bhopal informs him that the family of a girl named Tasleem Khan aka Tiku (Avneet Kaur) is interested in getting their daughter married to him. They also plan to pay him Rs. 10 lakhs as a dowry. Sheru sees Tiku’s picture and falls for her. Also, he realizes that the dowry money will help him repay his loan. Tiku is initially against marrying Sheru as she is in love with a man named Binni Arora (Rahoul), who’s also from Mumbai. But Binni suggests to Tiku that she should marry Sheru as it’ll help her relocate to Mumbai and fulfill her dreams of becoming an actress. Tiku likes this idea. Also, Binni is in Mumbai and she would get a chance to be with him. Tiku weds Sheru and they move to Mumbai. Sheru pays off his debt. He lies to Tiku and her sister Sana (Khushi Bharadwaj) that the house where he’s living is his temporary accommodation and that his flat is under renovation. The same day, Tiku runs away to be with Bini. She also learns that she’s pregnant with Binni’s child. Binni, however, refuses to take care of the yet-to-be-born baby. He also informs Tiku that he is married and has a kid. What happens next forms the rest of the film.

Tiku Weds Sheru

Sai Kabir’s story is clichéd and very juvenile. Sai Kabir and Amit Tiwari’s screenplay fails to hide the loose ends and flaws in the plot. The writers add too many tracks and issues and the end result is a mess. Sai Kabir and Amit Tiwari’s dialogues are okay and some one-liners raise laughs.

Sai Kabir’s direction is poor. He had earlier directed REVOLVER RANI [2014], which also had some issues. But at least, his execution was neat. Here, his direction goes for a toss. From the first scene, one can sense that the direction is not upto the mark. In the later scenes, however, the film does get a bit interesting, especially the circumstances under which Tiku and Sheru get married. It’s still unconvincing but at least, it catches attention. Tiku finding out that she’s pregnant is quite dramatic as also what happens thereafter. Tiku and Sheru going out for dinner and to the beach is cute

From here on, the film falls and how. The drug angle is forced. Tiku’s struggles also seem very unconvincing, and depressing. In fact, several developments are bewildering and are not explained properly by the makers. Viewers never come to know what happened to the Rs. 10 lakhs loaned by Shahid to Sheru and how the latter blew it away. Sheru stealing the production car and using it more than once is also not digestible. It is strange how Tiku never finds out that Sheru is not as rich as he pretends to be. The baby angle is needless and was added just for the heck of it. This is evident by the fact that this angle becomes inconsequential towards the end. In fact, the content of the films falls to another level in the climax. The cross-dressing and cross-firing simply made zero sense. Audiences are sure to wonder who on earth approved such sub-standard script in the first place.

Tiku Weds Sheru – Official Trailer | Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Avneet Kaur | Prime Video India

Speaking of performances, Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays his part with utmost sincerity. He had played a struggler earlier as well, in GHOOMKETU [2020]. But he makes sure that the performance in this film stands out. Avneet Kaur has a fine screen presence and performs well. Khushi Bharadwaj is lovely. Vipin Sharma, Mukesh Bhatt and Ghanshyam Garg (Raza Ali Khan) are okay. Rahuoul is hardly there for a scene. The same goes for Kangana Ranaut’s cameo appearance. Zakir Hussain (Ahmed Rizvi) and Suresh Vishwakarma (Chandresh Bhund) do well but are let down by the writing. In fact, their track is the worst part of the film.

Music is not upto the mark. ‘Meri Jaane Jaan’ is catchy but the rest of the songs like ‘Tum Se Milke’, ‘DNA Bhokali’, ‘Intezaar Tha’ and ‘Aitbaar Tha’ are not worth remembering. Aman Pant’s background score keeps the mood of the film light.

Fernando Gayesky’s cinematography is appropriate. Sheetal Sharma’s costumes are as per the demands of the script and are fine. Rakesh Yadav’s production design is of a good standard. Ballu Saluja’s editing is sharp.

On the whole, TIKU WEDS SHERU is an avoidable fare due to its silly plot and amateur direction.
