The story of the film revolves around a girl named Riddhima (Deekhsha Joshi), who is a marriage counsellor. Her family decides to get her married to Shubh (Bharat Chawda), who is an NRI and an architect by profession. Shubh and Riddhima, who start liking each other, agree to get married. However, Shubh doesn’t want to enter a new relationship based on a lie and decides to make a confession. After much deliberation, Shubh tells Riddhima about the problems in his family. This hurts Riddhima greatly but instead of calling off the wedding, she decides to help Shubh. While the family is busy with the wedding ceremonies, Riddhima and Shubh leave no stone unturned to make things right.

Amit Barot has made an impressive directorial debut with this beautiful wedding movie. If you wish to experience the magic of the much talked about ‘big fat Gujarati weddings’ on the silver screen, this visual treat should be your weekend choice. Barot has showcased every wedding ritual at its ethnic best, with some wonderful modern hues added to them. He has also done a good job with an interesting juxtaposition of the two sides of Ahmedabad, the walled city and the new one. Be it shooting in the pols or presenting the lavish landscapes of the city, he gets the balance just right.

Shubh Aarambh is a complete family entertainer, with impressive performances by veterans Harsh Chhaya and Prachee Shah Paandya making it a delightful experience. Deeksha Joshi and Bharat Chawda share an amazing onscreen chemistry, while Aarjav Trivedi as Laalo will have you in splits with his impeccable comic timing. Also, the rich poetic content in the film will be thoroughly enjoyed by ardent admirers of Gujarati literature. The music surely uplifts the film. Divya Kumar and Palak Joshi’s ‘Geet Gulabi’ is a hummable romantic number, and the excellent cinematography at some of Ahmedabad’s signature locations makes it a show-stealer. Swanand Kirkire’s ‘Shubh Aarambh’, the title track, is the perfect song at the beginning of the movie, with the slow rhythm adding to the detailing of the city and the overall mood. ‘Shubh Aarambh Ho’, sung by Divya Kumar, is a wonderful wedding number and the upbeat pace gets you humming along in no time. Even ‘O Rangrasiya’, sung by Kirtidan Gadhvi and Ishani Dave, adds its charm to the movie.

The film isn’t without its flaws though. The ‘problem of plenty’ phenomenon hampers the smooth run at places, as there are times when the film tries to bind too many things together. As they say, movies are eventually made on the edit table and there are a few loose ends that hamper an otherwise perfect collage. Still, overall, it is a great effort by the entire team and this film shows that even simple stories, which have their hearts in the right place, can create magic, with the aid of power-packed performances, great music and wonderful direction.

Sometimes a small misunderstanding can create a huge bridge in a relationship. And the basic reason behind this is a communication gap.<br/>Riddhima (a professional marriage counselor) &amp; Shubh ( NRI Architect ) are about to tie a knot. In between the Wedding Prep's Riddhima discovers that Shubh's parents have filed a divorce. And then Riddhima decides to any how save their 30 years long relationship along with Shubh &amp; her younger bro Hardik. After all the odds ultimately she saves their relationship. In the end Shubh &amp; Riddhima ties a knot. <br/>Simple still a touching tale.<br/>What the screenplay writer seeks to convey is that &quot; Sometimes few love stories , need a new beginning &quot;.

I first time watched a gujrati movie &quot;shubharambh&quot;.. The movie was awesome. All actors performed nicely, but harsh chhaya steal the show with his shayaris and poems. If you haven''t watched this movie ye please go and watch.

Went to see Gujarati Movie ''Shubham Aarambh'', yesterday. <br/>I have no connection with anyone involved with production of this movie. <br/>But still I am unable to resist the temptation of reviewing....<br/>Simply awesome with magnanimous story, screenplay and dialogues. Haven''t seen a Gujarati movie of this kind, ever.<br/>Superb acting by all main characters including the best amongst them - Harsh Chhaya.<br/>The movie has snippets of comedy (Dhulo of Chhello Divas) and some good Shayari and songs to live with the screenplay. This has added spices to the ''flavour''.<br/>If you get a chance to see this movie in a group, well and good. If not, proceed on your own. It is worth every rupee spent.<br/>And finally, even if you have quarrelled with your spouse JUST ONCE, during your wedded life, this movie is for you. I think no one may be an exception, on this count. Don''t miss 👌👌👌
