Indian cricketer MS Dhoni’s maiden production, LGM – Let’s Get Married, stars Harish Kalyan and Ivana as the main characters. The movie hit the screens today in Telugu states. Let’s dive into our review to see how the movie is.
After dating for two years, Gautam (Harish Kalyan) and Meera (Ivana) decide to get married. But Meera worries that life with her future mother-in-law Leela (Nadiya) might be tough. So, she asks Gautam to plan a trip to Coorg with their families, hoping to bond with her aunt. The trip doesn’t start well, and Gautam gets stuck in the middle of this chaos. Eventually, Meera comes up with another idea to fix the problem. What’s her plan? Did they get closer? Did Gautam and Meera marry? To find out, you’ll have to watch the main movie.
The story is simple and sweet. The idea of checking if you’re compatible with your partner for a happy life isn’t new, but doing it with future mother-in-law is unique.
Harish Kalyan, familiar to Telugu audiences with Jersey, looks good on screen. His role as someone torn between his mom and girlfriend is impressive and funny. Ivana, who impressed us in Love Today, is back with another interesting character. As Meera, a bold and modern girl, Ivana acts well and brings some laughs.
Nadiya’s role is good, and she plays it subtly. Yogi Babu brings laughs with his funny lines whenever he’s on screen. Mirchi Vijay, Harish Kalyan’s sidekick, also adds to the humor. The dubbing is excellent, making it feel like a proper Telugu movie.
The story might have seemed exciting on paper, but it’s not that engaging on screen. The writers, Sakshi Dhoni and Ramesh Tamilmani could have added more interesting scenes between the lead female characters. More compelling interactions between Nadiya and Ivana would have made things better.
The director, Ramesh Tamilmani, also should have focused on the pacing, which is a tad slow. The story drags, with unnecessary scenes in both halves that slow down things.
Harish’s acting is decent, but he could have emoted better in some crucial scenes. The drama between the lead pair is the most crucial aspect of a rom-com, but this hasn’t been handled well.
Yogi Babu and Deepa Kumari’s characters were not utilized to the fullest extent. The songs are forgettable once you leave the theater. The climax and some scenes in both halves could have had some impact, but the presentation didn’t let that happen. Plus, some characters don’t really contribute to the story.
As a writer and director, Ramesh Tamilmani didn’t make a strong impact. With a better story and tighter script, the movie could have been a more entertaining romantic comedy.
The camera work is decent, but the shots of Goa and Coorg by DOP Odukkathil Viswajith could have been still better to make the movie visually more appealing. The music by Ramesh Tamilmani lacks the spark. Editor Pradeep E Ragav is just okay. Production values are okay.
On the whole, LGM – Let’s Get Married is a somewhat incomplete rom-com with a good story, decent performances, and occasional humor. However, the slow pace and lengthy scenes in both halves might cause boredom. If that doesn’t bother you, you could watch it over the weekend, but keep your expectations in check. The film might appeal more to OTT audiences well.
