LGM: Let’s Get Married Movie Review – A Disappointing Debut for Dhoni Productions
When former Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni announced his venture into film production, expectations were high for his debut movie, “Let’s Get Married” (LGM). Unfortunately, the film fails to deliver on its promising concept, suffering from weak writing and technical execution. While a few moments spark interest, overall, the film falls flat with clumsy fillers scattered throughout.
Director Ramesh wastes no time in introducing the couple, Gautham (Harish Kalyan) and Meera (Ivana), who have been dating for two years. Meera suggests spending time with Gautham’s mother (Nadiya) before committing to marriage. They decide to take the whole family on a trip to bond and understand each other better. However, things take an unexpected turn when Goutham’s mother realizes the true intention behind the trip.
The film’s core idea of a girl wanting to connect with her future mother-in-law had potential for a compelling script. Regrettably, LGM stretches this concept into a tedious two-and-a-half-hour screenplay, filled with forced humor and an inorganic narrative. The characters don’t undergo significant transformations despite the trip’s purpose.
To add to the disappointment, the final act features poorly made CGI, where the central characters confront a Tiger. The film also suffers from inconsistency in color tone and awkward camera angles, giving it a short film vibe. As a travel film, it should immerse viewers visually, but the excessive use of green mat sequences only worsens the experience.
Despite these shortcomings, Harish Kalyan, Ivana, and Nadiya manage to salvage some scenes with their decent performances. The director’s dual role as the music director, however, fails to make a positive impact, leaving us to wonder if a different choice would have been wiser. Yogi Babu, with his witty one-liners, provides occasional entertainment for the audience.
Interestingly, the comedian’s character even expresses that the story isn’t interesting enough, echoing the sentiment for the entire movie. “Let’s Get Married” ends up being a below-average romantic drama that offers little to take away. Dhoni’s debut production falls short of hitting it out of the park, leaving us hoping for better offerings in the future.
