Last weekend, Pollywood witnessed major Box Office clash with Muklawa and Chandigarh Amritsar Chandigarh releasing on the same day. Both the movies starred prominent personalities of Punjabi Industry and are doing well at the box office. Muklawa stars Ammy Virk and Sonam Bajwa in the lead roles. Check out the movie review below!
Ammy Virk, Sonam Bajwa, BN Sharma, Karamjit Anmol, Gurpreet Ghuggi. The movie is directed by Simerjit Singh and produced by While Hill Music.
The film is based on the after the wedding custom when a newly-wed bride is taken back to her parents home. Muklawa takes us back to the times when it was a common tradition for the girl to stay back at her parents’ house from a few months to up to a year after her wedding. It was forbidden for the groom to even enter the bride’s village during this period, let alone meet her.
Muklawa opens at rather an uncomfortable scene. Ammy Virk is seen dreaming about his future wife and the wedding night. He then opens the ‘ghund‘ of his bride and runs away after seeing that his bride is of dark complexion and is ‘not’ beautiful! Where this scene offered laughter it also makes us think about our traditional mindset and set standards of beauty!
Nevertheless, the movie then takes it form and moves ahead delivering loads of laughter. Ammy Virk as Shinda and Sonam Bajwa as Taro entertains with perfect dialogue delivery and amazing onscreen chemistry.
Muklawa is set in the 1960s. Its story revolves around the age-old custom where the girl stays at her parent’s house for a time period of a few months to even years after the wedding. The family then prepares for her Muklawa and prepares to send her back to her inlaws. Ammy Virk(Shinda) and Sarbjit Cheema are playing real brothers in the film. They both get married in the same house. Where Sarbjit Cheema manages to take his bride home, Ammy Virk’s wife Taro (played by Sonam Bajwa) is sent back to her parents home.
Ammy Virk then makes several efforts to have a glimpse of his wife. He along with his friend and chacha (played by Karamjit Anmol and BN Sharma respectively) tries to get into his wife’s house by donning several avatars. But they eventually get caught and then the story takes a turn.
What will happen next? Will Shinda get his wife back? To get these answers, you will have to watch Muklawa running in theatres now!
Muklawa’s unique concept is what makes it worth the watch. You can take your families along and give them a treat of the family drama which they will love for sure. Muklawa is a one time watch and is worth the time.
We give it 3.5 stars out of 5
