Blind movie review of Tumhari Sulu
A blind perspective:
Tumhari Sulu is a Hindi comedy drama movie featuring Vidya Balan, Manav Kaul, Neha Dhupia and RJ Malishka.
The film is directed by Suresh Triveni and produced by T-Series and Ellipsis Entertainment.
The whole story of the movie revolves around Sulochana affectionately called by everyone as “Sulu” (Vidya Balan).
She is a suburban housewife taking good care of her husband (Manav Kaul) and school going son.
But she is very much interested in doing something extraordinary like any job or business.
Fortunately, one day she gets a chance to be a radio jockey (RJ).
Sulu's husband is always loving and supportive towards her.
Initially everything goes well but slowly she gets trapped between job and family responsibilities.
The rest of the movie is about how the couple handle the situation through proper understanding and sharing of ideas.
From the accessibility point of view, the movie is almost accessible to visually impaired persons as it is related to RJ profession and most of the scenes in the movie are dialogue based.
But some scenes in the movie like the starting scene in which Sulu is playing lemon & spoon game, love and emotional scenes between husband and wife and scenes going on at Sulu’s son’s school should have audio description for the benefit of blind & low vision viewers.
Rating: 7.5 out of 10
A sighted perspective:
Tumhari Sulu introduces Vidya Balan as Sulu who aims to do everything that interests her.
Her two sisters are well-settled in their lives with their bank jobs and always taunt Sulu for being a class 12 dropout and marrying a middle-class guy Ashok (Manav Kaul).
Sulu has an 11 year old son Pranav and is happy with her small and sweet family.
Sulu’s routine life takes a new turn when she wins a radio contest.
She unexpectedly meets Maria (Neha Dhupia), who offers her an exciting job of a night RJ (radio jockey).
In the first half of the film, Sulu thinks she can make it and balance her personal and professional life well.
But the second half of the film shows how things don’t go as per Sulu’s plan.
The way Sulu and Ashok decide to sort out their differences and work together to lead a happy family forms the climax of the movie.
Tumhari Sulu is a good one-time watch film for Vidya Balan’s acting performance, funny dialogues, engaging script and decent direction.
