Plot

The family of revered priest Pandit Siyaram Tripathi performs all religious ceremonies in Balrampur. The star of the town and the Tripathi household is their son, Ved Vyas Tripathi, also known as Billu and lovingly referred to as Bhajan Kumar because of his well-known bhajan performances. An announcement that Ved is a Muslim by birth is sent to the family when Siyaram Tripathi embarks on a teerth yatra. Mishra, the rival Pandit of the Tripathis and a bitter friend of Ved's, is plotting to use this to bring Ved and his family down as he questions his identity. The Tripathis face the possibility of losing a lucrative and esteemed marriage contract to Mishra. Still, it's unclear if Pandit Siyaram will accept their son and whether Billu will be welcomed by their profoundly religious mohalla.

Star performance

Vicky Kaushal is undoubtedly the star of the show. The supporting cast is also integral for the film to work.

Analysis

There isn't enough of a compelling plot or narrative in this family drama to keep you interested. In the first part of the story, Billu and his friends' antics are kind of funny, but as the plot develops, the narrative becomes less compelling. Although the film's premise is well-intentioned, it doesn't quite translate on screen in terms of impact. Cinematographer Ayananka Bose emphasizes the vibrant colors that rule the intricate and bustling spaces in the flashy, high-pitched, and, at first glance, 'uncool' world that Billu and his pious Hindu family live in.

The overdone visuals in The Great Indian Family complement the narrative, which features Vicky Kaushal in top form in the role of the small-town guy with a naive understanding of other religions, primarily because of the energy he brings to the character. Vicky's sincere performance gave a poorly written character a sense of depth. Although The Great Indian Family has a genuine message, its execution is lacking. Manushi Chhillar's confident and outspoken Jasmine, the hero's romantic interest,  is not given enough development in the script. The character deserved more screen time, particularly in light of the ideals she upholds. The Great Indian Family could have been a much more sophisticated movie, still it succeeds in its agenda against bigotry by using the story of a family as symbolic of a country and a society.

What’s there?

  • Predictably good performances
  • Social and religious intent is on point

What’s not there?

  • A funny and intelligent screenplay is lacking
  • Loud and garish expressions of the themes do a disservice to the film

Verdict

The movie's basic premise could be both politically preachy and mildly entertaining. However, the blatant lack of skill and hurriedly written screenplay render The Great Indian Family a resolutely uninteresting comedy that has trouble establishing a clear focal point right away. The film, which has numerous meaningless comedic tracks and songs, is only 112 minutes long. That illustrates how little content the creators needed to carry out this idea. It appears as though Yashraj Films rushed to produce The Great Indian Family to take advantage of the OTT market. The majority of the film is filmed on sets, and it is evident that the first act struggles to stay relevant. Family audiences will surely be disappointed by this self-proclaimed family endeavor.
