What's Your Rashee: Movie Review

Directed By-
Ashutosh Gowariker

Produced By-
Ronnie Screwvala, Ashutosh Gowariker

Harman Bhaweja, Priyanka Chopra..

How many of you were waiting for this one from Gowariker? i know many! Sadly for all Gowariker fans, What's Your Rashee is absolutely disappointing. Based onMadhu Rye's novel Kimball Ravenswood, WYR's script is as flat as it can possibly get. 

What's Your Rashee's story revolves around Yogesh Patel(Harman Bhaweja) an MBA student studying in Chicago, who is forced to return to India after receiving a message about his father's deteriorating health. On reaching India is when the family of Yogesh let out the actual reason.Yogesh is then told about the share scam committed by his brother and the family's huge debt. He's also told about the solution offered by a astrologer according to whom, If Yogesh gets married on the 20th, huge wealth is to follow the family on the very day. He's given a mere 10
 days to decide a girl and get married. It does not take long for his family to convince Yogesh and he's then out looking for brides. After a lot of confusion about the brides shortlisted by his uncle,Yogesh comes up with a bizarre idea of meeting one girl from each of the 12 zodiac signs. And the plot leading upto Yogesh deciding his soul mate among the 12 is for you to watch it yourself. 

Gowariker seems to have failed miserably with WYR provided the quality of movies that he
made previously. The movie fails to take off and the plot of the movie does not really convince you at any level. The one and the only thing that is impressive with WYR is Priyanka Chopra's impeccable performance playing 12 different characters. She's absolutely mind blowing with each of the 12 characters and probably the only thing that makes you sit right through the exhausting 3 hours 15 minutes. Harman Bhaweja is good and tries his best to make an impact with his honest acting supported well by rest of the cast. The funnier parts that were supposed to be funny are not funny and it just frustrates you more. 

The music by Sohail Sen is ordinary and the 12 songs used for 12 the different characters are not impressive either. 

I will go with 4 BOP's out of 10 for Ashutosh Gowariker's What's Your Rashee.

Avoid this Flick!
