Zee5 has managed to become a major game-changer as far as OTT content is concerned. And the latest presentation, Comedy Couple, has Saqib Saleem and Shweta Basu Prasad in the lead roles. The movie has both things – comedy and a couple, but it has its own highs and lows. None the less, to make your decision about it, read through this Comedy Couple review.
The movie, if had to be summed up, sees two people staying together as a couple, while they try their hand at stand-up. For a while now, standup comedy has been enjoyed by Indians with us fairing well at it. However, though the premise of the film is as interesting as ever, it lacks the consistency to keep the audiences hooked.
Before reading the Comedy Couple review further, check the trailer:
Saqib plays the role of Deep while Shweta plays Zoya, and the movie also has three other important actors. Rajesh Tailang, Pooja Bedi, and Aadar Malik play important roles in the film. While Rajesh is the strict father, Pooja is the carefree mom, and Aadar, well, you’ll see. While they are all important characters, you begin to want to see more of them at certain points.
Not being too harsh a critic while writing this Comedy Couple review, but the movie could have done better. While there have been novel attempts at presenting it has a different kind of rom-com, it ends up being exactly that. Romance and comedy make up for two of the most enjoyed genres, yet, it doesn’t suffice the movie.
It is only in the end that things begin to fall into place and we want to see what follows. However, for some, this might be too late into the film as the flow breaks from time to time. We wouldn’t rule out the entire possibility of watching the movie, but it is best to do so with an open mind. If you are looking to watch something out of the box, this might not be it.
Meanwhile, the performances from Shweta and Rajesh are some of the key highlights. The actress has managed to put on a great performance and is convincing on screen. Saqib, a promising actor, might seem to fall short at certain places when compared. The supporting cast, on the other hand, has done a good job at putting the film together.
