There are certain movies that you might not enjoy just because they don’t have your favorite stars but even such movies have some plus factors in small amounts that work well and might interest some people. Directed by Swapna Waghmare, Damadamm stars Himesh Reshammiya in the lead role with Sonal Sehgal, Purbi Joshi and Rajesh Khattar. The movie is extremely simple in narration and therefore some people might enjoy the simplicity of the script.

Sameer (Himesh) has a perfect life that he can ask for and therefore he is always enjoying his life the best way he can, but nothing is really perfect in life. He has a possessive and nagging girlfriend Shikha (Purbi) who always keeps ranting all her frustrations and problems. This is one major reason why Sameer likes to stay away from Shikha but he loves her for her cute nature. On the other hand, Sameer meets his boss’ sister Sonal Sehgal and they spend time together when Shikha is away but things go wrong when Shikha finds out the truth and all hell break loose for Sameer.

On performance level, there is nothing much to say because Himesh does work hard on his acting but somehow it does not show well on screen. He might have worked hard for his performance in various scenes but there is no consistency. There are few scenes where Himesh is extremely good but the rest of the movie is the same performance from Himesh that we expect. Purbi Joshi steals the show with her good performance and one can say that she is the only performer in the movie. Most of the scenes look great because of her presence on screen and that is what will save the movie if people go to watch it. Rajesh Khattar is brilliant in his role as well but without a good script none of the actors could really perform well. Technically, the movie is average as well and there is nothing much that the audience would take back home in their minds. The cinematography by Oystein Lundstorm is good but that alone cannot save the movie. The music by Himesh Reshammiya is nothing like his past scores. Most of the songs are boring and does not even make sense so there is nothing that can give you break from getting bored.

To conclude, Damadamm is best avoided because there is nothing much that this film offers. The story is too simple like movies that used to be in the 70s but it still misses the charm that those classic movies had in them. Most of the scenes and situations are old and pretty predictable and therefore there is no striking point that the film offers. There are certain light moments in the movie but audiences always prefer movies that have value for money rather than going for movies that have few scenes that can make you laugh. Overall, Damadamm is not bad but skipping this movie is recommended.
