Actress Sonakshi Sinha and Huma Qureshi have been victims of body shaming in their careers. They have to bear the taunts of people regarding their weight and obesity. Due to obesity, people often have to become the object of laughter and that’s why they decided to make Double XL Movie. Thus, the movie's story revolves around two girls who face all kinds of rejection and taunts because of their weight. After facing all sorts of problems, they meet by chance, and the story takes a new turn.
Writer Mudassar Aziz and director Satram Ramani have raised a sensitive and relevant issue. The intention behind this movie is to tell the audience that the size of the body does not matter in fulfilling dreams. However, the writer and director could not discuss the subject better.
The movie's cast has done a great job portraying their characters. Huma has beautifully illustrated a middle-class girl and her problems through her acting. Sonakshi Sinha's character may be suffering from the pain of obesity. However, she gets no sympathy due to her luxurious life. In the role of Rajshri's mother, Alka Kaushal beautifully conveys the feelings of anxiety and insecurities about her daughter. Debutant actor Mahat Raghavendra impresses in the character of Shrikant. Overall, Double XL Movie seems to be average.
