Shashanka Ghosh's romcom Veere Di Wedding dives into the shallow end of the deep pool of female friendship. We first meet the four brave souls of the title as adolescents, and the movie never abandons its pre-adult views of marriage (a folly), friendship (a life saviour), alcohol (second only to water), sex (good for health), cigarettes (a stress-buster), profanity (an essential language enhancer) and fashion (to be followed at all times).

The raunchy Bollywood romantic comedy Veere Di Wedding could be that guilty pleasure that's usually derived after watching a glossy hit sitcom like Sex And The City. Plucky women, sassy attitude and their collective fabulousness make the women of Veere Di Wedding instantly likeable.

For some it is intimate, for others sisterly, and for many it is fun. But we have to accept the fact that female friendship is a necessity. And Shashanka Ghosh does some justice in portraying all the ups and downs of female friendship in his directorial Veere Di Wedding. Shashanka makes his female leads laugh and weep, lose cool and make-up, go on trips, talk about men, have fun like men, and share a genuine relationship with each other.

So, finally after 105 years, has bollywood got a microcosm on women issues or say 'liberated' conversations on screen?. Is VEERE DI WEDDING helmed by Shashanka Ghosh (QUICK GUN MURUGUN, KHOOBSURAT) starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker, Shikha Talsania and Sumeet Vyas is the Indian answer to the Sex and the City' things of Hollywood?, Is this movie really not a chick flick and an 'open minded' debate on the dilemma of liberated women in a conflicted society?

In a scene, we're ushered into an ostentatious and gaudy engagement taking place in West Delhi. The couple-to-be find themselves awkwardly smiling as they share a tiny seat sculpted on a crescent moon suspended in mid-air. While a commentator recites lyrics of several Hindi film numbers jumbled together, the two are expected to swap rings. As they do, the audience breaks into a thundering applause.

There's a telling scene in Veere Di Wedding which sums up its hare-brained treatment to the societal regression its leading ladies confront and try to battle. Avni (Sonam K Ahuja), a divorce lawyer desperately seeking a husband, finds her domestic help crying with bruise marks on her face. Promising to drag the culprit, the husband, to court, she is distracted from her noble speech by a prospective groom and some good news. And just like that an issue is raised and conveniently sidelined.

Kalindi (Kareena), Avni (Sonam), Mira (Shikha) and Sakshi Soni (Swara) are school friends. Each has her own dreams for the future -- Kalindi doesn't want to ever get married thanks to her parents' constant fights and strife, Mira's uncle wants her to enter matrimony as soon as she finishes education, Sakshi aspires to go to Prague while Avni wants to pursue a career.

I confess I set out to watch Veere Di Wedding with some trepidation. Honestly, I am exhausted from the parade of so-called 'women-centric' Bollywood films in recent years by directors who do not understand or care a fig about women but smelt an opportunity as the rights of our half of the population moved from the inner folds of newspapers to Page 1 and television prime time after the December 2012 Delhi gangrape. When feminism is a fad and a formula for you, not a conviction, obviously you will churn out empty vessels such as Akira or stereotypes like Tanu in the Tanu Weds Manu flicks.

Veere Di Wedding, directed by Shashanka Ghosh and written by Nidhi Mehra and Mehul Suri is everything it had claimed to be and is a lot more than a chick flick. The film doesn't claim to be made from a feminist angle nor does it reek of feminism in any which way. However, the film is every bit women-centric as the four female characters carry the film entirely on their shoulders without making the audience feel the claiming-absence of strong male characters in the film.

What are your expectations from a film starring Kareena Kapoor Khan and Sonam Kapoor? The general assumption would be a fashion extravaganza that is shot in beautiful locales and has attitude and sass to spare. Veere Di Wedding is all of these things -- it is also outrageous, gratingly loud and unnecessarily abusive - but what it is not, is entertaining.

'Veer', pyaar se, 'veere', is used for the male of the Punjabi species. That a film about female bonding flips it around and calls its female leads by the same name tells you something you need to know about Veere Di Wedding. That it is the quintessentially Dilli film, is clear from the opening frame. That it is about girls-growing-into-women is equally plain. That we are going to be buried under mounds of designer stuff, and unending jibes on the super cool S Delhi aesthetic vs the cheesy W Dalhi 'chamak dhamak', is right there too.

Kalindi Puri (Kareena) is a commitment-phobic woman in a relationship with Rishab (Sumeet Vyas). When Rishab proposes marriage and Kalindi reluctantly accepts, it sets the stage for a reunion with her childhood pals Avni (Sonam), Meera (Shikha) and Sakshi (Swara). While Kalindi suffers from an acute case of commitment-phobia, the three pals too have their own set of problems and how the quartet deal with their issues over the duration of the wedding preps, forms the rest of the plot.

Maybe the whole point of making this picture was to have a giggle of girls, half a decade apart in terms of actual age-but very much sisters from other misters who went to school together - unleash a scatological vocabulary that you don't usually expect from heroines on the Bollywood screen. The audience is supposed to be in haw! That women in general, especially in the company of women, usually do talk about orgasm, sex, and masturbation (why would they not?), is beside the point.

Bollywood has given innumerable bromance flicks. But there have been hardly any such film involving our pretty ladies. This is quite a shocker as the urban, multiplex audience would love to see female bonding flicks talking about their problems, quirks, way of life etc. Finally Sonam Kapoor and her sister producer Rhea Kapoor took up the challenge and designed VEERE DI WEDDING. Despite their lead actress Kareena Kapoor Khan getting pregnant, they stayed put and refused to shelve the project.

The plot of the film revolves around four friends.

As the wedding preparations begin, people are introduced to some harsh realities of these emotionally-complex ladies who are still trying to figure out life.

Veere Ki Wedding is a rollicking romp designed to push across the idea that girls have more fun than the boys. And the four protagonists -- Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania go about executing it with so much panache that you go home believing it. The film makes a case for women empowerment and for female sexuality and goes about it with a tenacity of a pitbull terrier. At the same time, what's good is that it doesn't take itself too seriously and winks and nods at you to do the same.

Kalindi Puri (Kareena Kapoor Khan), Avni Sharma (Sonam Kapoor Ahuja), Sakshi Soni (Swara Bhasker) and Meera Sood (Shikha Talsania) are these four together-since-college kind of buddies. They call themselves Veeres (Brothers) and share this immortal bond with each other. 10 years fast-forwarding from their school friendship, we see all four busy with their own lives in different parts of the world. They're faraway but are as much together as they were before.

It has been an undeniable debut on gender equality especially in our Bollywood films. Not only filmmakers but the audiences have also been excepting more and more women oriented films lately but Veere Di Wedding has an uncanny resemblance of a chic flick. Modern women and their petty issues, VDW is clearly nothing more than that. Earlier directed a poor rip off Khoobsurat, director Shashanka Ghosh tries too hard with this one and could only make it a one time watch.

Sex in the City is an iconic show that deals with female companionship and camaraderie. There is no doubt in my mind that Veere Di Wedding was inspired by the characters and theme of this legendary TV show. Even though the sexual innuendos and expletives are tamed down to suit the desi audience, this all female ensemble of four childhood friends - Avni (Sonam Kapoor), Kalinidi (Kareena Kapoor Khan), Sakshi (Swara Bhaskar), Meera (Shikha Talsania) have several moments and chapters in their life where they 'let go' and break several stereotypes.

Veere Di Wedding is about four girlfriends, one wedding and an A-certificate. It's almost as if a gorgeous box of bonbons stumbled upon a mountain of bullets. But the only rounds fired are the expletives shooting off its four female protagonists' mouth. The girls drink, smoke, cuss and party in picture perfect dollhouses wearing picture perfect make-up.

Kalindi (Kareena Kapoor Khan), Avni (Sonam Kapoor Ahuja), Sakshi (Swara Bhasker) and Meera (Shikha Talsania) are childhood friends. Kalindi and Rishabh (Sumeet Vyas) are getting married, and the four gal pals come together for their veere's wedding. But of course, there can be no shaadi without showsha and a lot of drama. This wedding celebration brings out skeletons from the closet, unspoken truths and some harsh realities as well.

"Do you know who his mother is?" Three girls giggle in mock scandal after the fourth girl comes back from an unexpected tryst, and this question is posed to remind the straying girl that she has just slept with the son of a notorious gossip. The query, asked in an unmistakably Delhi vernacular ("You know na uski Ma kaun hai?) mirrors that familiar cliche of North Indian masculinity - "Jaanta nahin mera Baap kaun hai?" - where men play bully by asking others if they know who their father is, as if the asker himself was mildly concussed and had forgotten.
