Subhash K. Jha speaks about Ek Vivaah Aisa Bhi

By Subhash K. Jha, Bollywood Hungama News Network

Nobility as a quality in cinema seems almost the hallmark of Sooraj Barjatya's cinema. Especially during these times of stress, cynicism and violence, any film that doesn't belch out venomous fumes is worthy of applause.

But wait. Before we cheer Ek Vivaah Aisa Bhi for walking the straight and narrow road, let's be warned. The route taken by the narration looks like a poor, tame, tepid and technically shoddy facsimile of Anil Ganguly's Tapasya (which was produced by Barjatya) and more recently, the Barjatya-directed Vivaah which won extra points for its elegant and fluent simplicity of narration.
