Debutant director Puneet Khanna is not a fan of nuance. So his film has the straightforward title - Ginny Weds Sunny. And shaadi looms large over the story. Boy and girl meet-cute at a big, fat Punjabi wedding and their relationship culminates at a big, fat destination wedding. In between, Puneet tosses in all the Punjabi clichs that Bollywood specializes in - from paneer pakoras to middle-aged moms knocking back whiskey to the item song in a club with Badshah and Mika Singh. But there are a few surprises.

Welcome to the world of a classic masala entertainer - a romantic (comedy?) featuring Vikrant Massey with Yami Gautam. 'Ginny Weds Sunny', like the name suggests, has everything a wedding is about - small moments of fun, confusion, lots of dance and songs - basically a potboiler.

For anyone that truly loves the movies, there are few things that are more frustrating than watching an insipid, uninspired take on the kind of film that Bollywood not so long ago used to do fairly well. Ginny Weds Sunny is meant to be a light-hearted romantic comedy but it's neither staggeringly original in terms of its plot, nor is it able to breathe any freshness into a familiar set up.

Love Aaj Kal, I Hate Luv Storys, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani - the success of these films about commitment-phobic or confused youngsters on a rollercoaster of romantic indecision resulted in the theme being done to death for almost a decade, until Bollywood finally, thankfully, buried it a couple of years back. The creators of Ginny Weds Sunny were perhaps not invited to the funeral, which might explain why they made this film.

"We are very modern," Satnam aka Sunny Sethi's (Vikrant Massey) father (Rajiv Gupta) insists. He adds to good effect, "We have an automatic car and mobile phone with 4G." This, when matchmaker Shobha Juneja (Ayesha Raza Mishra) calls him outdated for not thinking about whether the bride-to-be might have her own career dreams, as opposed to partnering in the family's restaurant business that's yet to take shape.

A layer of surface gloss, a cloak of amiability and a dash of gentle irreverence cling to Ginny Weds Sunny, a breezy rom-com just out on Netflix, like a gossamer wrapper, making it an easy film to watch. If only it did not opt to skim the surface of the complexities of new-age love, it might have turned into something infinitely more substantial than just mildly diverting entertainment. But in the bit that it puts on show, there is a considerable degree of competence.

Love happens. A marriage can be arranged. Can love be arranged too? The Netflix original film Ginny Weds Sunny proposes that murmurs of the heart can be converted into "I dos" with the right amount of parental nudging. Mums and dads play an outsized role in Puneet Khanna's movie, written by Navjot Gulati and Sumit Arora. Yami Gautam is Ginny, the romantically confused woman of yore.

Ginny Weds Sunny is many things - an ode to stalking culture, an excuse for Haldiram's product placement, and just cause for streamers to regulate their content - but its biggest crime is how heartbreakingly it lets down its two leads, Yami Gautam and Vikrant Massey. Massey, for whom this is the third Netflix release in about as many weeks, is massively miscast as Sunny, a sexually inexperienced West Delhi boy who seems like the kind of person who makes TikToks in his spare time.

Speaking of arranged marriages, meme material Seema Taparia aka Seema aunty of Netflix's very own reality show 'Indian Matchmaking' was more enjoyable and fascinating to watch than all the stereotypical Punjabi characters put together in this puttar-paneer movie.

West Delhi. Punjabi. Middle class. Rom-com. Keywords which lead you to the endless fascination Bollywood has for movies featuring ladka-ladki, mummyjis and daddyjis, gaana-bajaana, and shaadi-vyaah. But not every film hoovering up this template can be Band Baaja Baraat, can it?
