1. Woman-power: Sharat Katariya first impressed us with his directorial debut Dum Laga Ke Haisha, which was about an intelligent and overweight woman who sets her husband (a semi-educated callow youth) on the right path. Sui Dhaaga's Mamta (Anushka Sharma) is cut from the same fabric. She is docile, but clearheaded and evidently the brighter one who sets Mauji (Varun Dhawan) a sincere simpleton on the right path. Katariya's thought that behind every successful man there is a woman who is thinking and planning ahead, is an idea whose time has come.
2. Story Wise: In times when films about India shining and making incremental strides in all walks of life are common, it is interesting to watch one which puts the spotlight on the struggles of a lower income group couple that want to start their very own venture. That the story is more about Mamta and Mauji's efforts to carve their own sewing enterprise strikes a different note taking a route different from most underdog small town stories.
3. Picture Perfect: Production designer Meenal Agarwal is successful in creating the lower-middle class, suburban Delhi which is not the glitzy and glamorous city one is accustomed to seeing on screen, nor dreary. It is a balance that is difficult to pull off especially in times when films showcasing the mofussil middle-class milieu are a dime a dozen.
4. A Balancing Act: Actress Anushka Sharma breaks away from her usual glamorous and glib persona and dons the avatar of a shy and simple housewife. She is outstanding as Mamta, who gently nudges her husband to take a step towards self-employment. Varun Dhawan as the simpleton, Mauji, is understated and brings out the much-required vulnerability of his character.
5. The Right Direction: Director and writer Sharat Katariya deserves a special mention for bringing us out-of-the-box stories about unusual couples and social issues that affect the aam admi. Katariya is successful in drawing commendable performances from the star couple and in delivering a film that goes beyond predictable rom-com fare, which is no mean feat.
