Here’s another entertainer from Dharma Productions, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania is going to be worth your time and money! It’s an entertainer in the true sense.
There is something about the new breed of actors. After just three to four films, the confidence and spontaneity Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan show in their new film is unbelievable.
Motormouth Kavya Pratap Singh (Alia) lives in Ambala with her family. Her father (played by Ashutosh Rana) has arranged her marriage in an NRI family known to him. She has her priorities clear, her only condition in this arrangement is an expensive designer lehenga for the wedding, which will cost about five lakh rupees. She pulls out the utter Bollywood cliche, “Main shaadi karoongi to Kareena wala designer lehenga pehen kar hi karoongi…”
Kavya visits her uncle in Delhi where she meets Humpty Sharma (Varun) who is a street smart Delhi boy. Kavya parties hard and drinks like a tank and Humpty can’t help falling in love with this pataka. Soon the two fall in love but the problem is Kavya is going to be married soon. Kavya’s husband-to-be, Angad (Siddharth) is Mr. Perfect and above all he is Kavya’s father’s choice. Clearly, desi boy Humpty has some serious competition to deal with.
Kavya, Humpty and his two friends provide a lot of entertainment through this two hour ten minute film. The entire film is pacy and crisp, the duration is perfect and at no point are you bored. Debutant director Shashank Khaitan weaves this typical Indian story in an engaging plot and gets some fabulous performances from his actors. The film also has some good emotional moments. Alia Bhatt is a natural. She is getting better with each film, clearly this one is one of her best performances so far. Varun Dhawan entertains each time he is on screen too. The boy has everything you would want to see in a Hindi film hero. The two have fabulous on-screen chemistry. Siddharth Shukhla and Ashutosh Rana get a fair chance too and both of them play their part well.
Music by Sachin Jigar and Toshi is perfect for this young film. Each and every song looks handpicked by the filmmaker to maintain the mood of the film. As the end credits roll, you can’t get your eyes off the screen with Saturday Saturday playing to entertain you till the very last moment. It’s extremely well shot and choreographed. Predictable in most parts, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania entertains you from the first frame to the last one. It’s a refreshing film.
