The Great Indian Family: The latest family entertainer from Bollywood was released today. Vicky Kaushal and Manushi Chhillar finally bring their most talked about labour to fruition. The movie successfully delivered a much-needed moral message for our disturbed society. However, being a family entertainer, it lacked a big deal of drama.

The latest addition to Vicky Kaushal’s arsenal is the anticipated film ‘The Great Indian Family.’ It features the former Miss World, Manushi Chhillar, and Vicky Kaushal in the lead roles. The film has an interesting plot that spreads across religious and cultural barriers. It narrates the story of a devout Hindu boy, Ved Vyas Tripathi who is an inspiration for others when it comes to spiritual matters. During the course of the story, he figures out his dormant talent for singing and that is when he transitions into Bhajan Kumar.
Apart from being extremely spiritual, Ved also happens to have a romantic side which unfolds when he crosses paths with Jasmeet (played by Manushi Chhillar). Soon after his romance begins to build with Jasmeet, Ved is shocked by a serious twist of fate as he finds out that he has been a Muslim all along. A letter holding information regarding Ved’s Muslim heritage discloses this unexpected secret. From that moment onwards, the film becomes a roller coaster ride with Ved trying to sink into this reality and his conservative Hindu family reacting to it.
The Great Indian Family Review: The good and the bad
The Great Indian Family brings a very nice message to the table diminishing religious and cultural barriers. Director Vijay Krishna Acharya has tried his best to play with fire by making a thought-provoking film such as this. However, with a message this important, it is only logical to expect the film to be more appealing. Somehow, that gripping factor was missing from the film. Being a family movie, there could have been more drama to keep the audience glued to their seats. But since it was lacking, you might find yourself withdrawn from the movie during some of the portions.
