“Sab badhiya hai,” is Mauji’s (Varun Dhawan) response to daily struggles for a mediocre existence. In them, is a commute-heavy job, bosses who use him for personal errands and entertainment, a resentful father, an ailing mother and a marriage sans romance. His wife has no time for love between household chores. Following a very realistic confrontational scene with his bosses, Mauji quits to start something of his own. Sui Dhaaga is full of such simple daily conflicts and solutions that are seamlessly woven into the narrative.

The film revolves around a handful of characters. While Varun Dhawan delivers an honest performance, almost never going overboard, Anushka Sharma’s restrain is effortless. She lives the character, clad in a simple sari, sporting sindoor and minimal makeup. Together their romance is understated to the point of being non-existent, but that doesn’t take away from their partnership as a couple while fighting the odds in life. The actor to watch out for is Yamini Dass, who plays Mauji’s mother.

Director Sharat Katariya does take a few cinematic liberties, but there are enough real moments to move you. In a winning first half, he successfully establishes his main characters and their problems. Smart usage of humour in dialogues ups the entertainment quotient, even when the going gets tough for the characters. However, these are minor patches in the overall fabric of the film that is cut for entertainment. Sui Dhaaga is sewn together with strong performances and moments that tell a convincing story. Go for it!
