Happy-go-lucky Sulochana (fondly known as Sulu), a suburban Mumbai housewife, lives with her husband, Ashok, a sales manager in a traditional company that sells uniforms, and their 11-year-old son, Pranav. Sulu keeps herself entertained through the day, which includes listening to her favorite radio station and taking part in every possible contest. Sulu breezes through life with a fun and candid never-say-never attitude. On a day like any other, Sulu ends up winning a pressure cooker through a radio contest that she has taken part in. Little does she know that her trip to the radio station is about to change her life. In an unexpected turn of events, she lands a job of an RJ (radio jockey). She is no ordinary RJ for she is made to anchor a night show, which involves chatting with peculiars, strangers and lonely souls. A husband in constant battle at a mid-level job, a precocious child who is up to something alarmingly strange in school, and a woman who unpredictably stumbles into the world of radio…. Seasoned with music, humour and quirk, Tumhari Sulu witnesses the everyday grit of a housewife, a marriage put to test and a world that struggles to see the beauty of a so-called ‘simple, ordinary life, which will warm your heart.
This movie can be related to by every lower and upper middle class family it’s a movie for the masses even though it’s not a masala film the content is purely relatable and narrated with lot of fun. Many times for sure there were scenes in the movie which brought a warm smile to my face remembering that such things happen to me too, and I am sure if not many atleast a couple of times it will happen to everyone who sees this film.
Manav Kaul, Neha Dhupia, Vijay Maurya are all absolutely superb in their portrayal.
Of course it’s queen Vidya Balan who steals the show with her performance she just jumps into the role with so much concentration that not for a moment she feels out of character and after some time you actually feel you are watching housewife, unorthodox RJ and mother Sulochna Dubey and not actress Vidya Balan she is superbly convincing.
The songs are superb and the lyrics have too good meaningful value relevant to the scenes.
The Second half of the movie does take a dip in interest value and by no means is it bad but surely not as lively as the first half. The movies length at 2.45 hours is a way bit too much and could have been edited and shortened by cutting the lengthy melodrama scenes lengths.
A brilliant film in which Sulu will win your heart and make everyone smile a movie with something for everybody.
My Rating 4 0f 5 stars
