Films based on twins have been made in Hindi cinema right from Ram Aur Shyam, to Seeta Aur Geeta, to Kishan Kanhaiyya and all have been appreciated by the audiences and this film is also a well made laughathon certain to tickle your funny bone. Karan and Charan (Arjun Kapoor) are twins, both Punjabis , but Karan is a fun loving extrovert while Charan is a quiet introvert prone to speaking in monosyllables, Charan is in love with his office colleague Nafisa Quereshi (Neha Sharma) but Charan simply can’t broach the topic of their marriage to their strict disciplinarian hotelier father (Pawan Malhotra) while Karan too has a girlfriend Sweety (Illena D’Cruz) and he too also has the same problem. So when a match comes from their London based grand aunt Bua (Ratna Pathak Shah) for Karan, he quietly passes the onus on to his brother and they land in London to meet their loving uncle Kartar Singh (Anil Kapoor) who springs up with ideas to make the nephews wedding dreams come true but always falls flat on his face when to save Charan from the impending marriage with Binkle (Athiya Shetty) , he starts a rumor that Charan is a drug addict which angers his prospective father in law (Rahul Dev) and his son (Karan Kundra) and then starts a tu tu main main war between the two families but now Charan is in love with Athiya adding to the complications and again Kartar is caught between the devil and the sea and finally how this Big Fat Punjabi Wedding pans out is the rib-tickling climax of the film. The film has that special Anees Bazmee comic touch. This must rank as Arjun Kapoor’s best performance yet .He excels in both his avatars. Anil Kapoor is as good as he is always is and is the life and soul of the film. Illena D’Cruz looks more confident before the camera now and does well. Athiya has a brief role but she looks beautiful and is impressive. Ratna Pathak Shah is amazing. Pawan Malhotra delivers a performance that will be remembered for years. Lalit Parimoo, Karan Kundra, Neha Sharma, Sanjay Kapoor, Krishan Tandon, lend good support. The music is folksy and has lot of pep. The London locations have been superbly picturized. The dialogues are very funny. On the whole the film is a full on entertainer.
