Ayushmann Khurrana-Bhumi Pednekar's Dum Laga Ke Haisha is effortlessly entertaining!

Movie: Dum Laga Ke Haisha


Star cast: Ayushmann Khurrana, Bhumi Pednekar, Sanjay Mishra


Director: Sharat Katariya


Producer: Yash Raj Films


Claps for: Ayushmann Khurrana, Bhumi Pednekar, Music


Slaps for: Not elaborating Ayushmann & Bhumi's relationship post the interval


Popcorn Refill: Keep it during the interval


Story: Prem (Ayushmann Khurrana) is a Haridwar 25 year old born middle class guy, who couldn't make anything good out of his life. Prem, a school drop-out, work for his father's recording shop and is an avid Kumar Sanu Fan. Things change for him when he is forcefully made to marry Sandhya, a plus size girl, intelligent and ambitious, trying to find herself a job. While Prem finally gives in to his family's demand of marriage, he is within himself, ashamed of Sandhya's obesity and tries to maintain distance from her. Expressing his resentment over his marriage with Sandhya, Prem blabbers his hatred to friends, which is overheard by Sandhya, who storms out of the house. Disappointed with their decision, Prem and Sandhya's family try hard to reconcile the couple. Now whether they leave aside their differences and get back together or no is what forms the main base of the film.


Performances: Ayushmann Khurrana is back and how! The actor is exceptional as the helpless boy stuck in a forced marriage and you just cannot help but sympathize with him. Khurrana's endearing performance will make you forget his last disaster 'Hawaizaada'. Debutante Bhumi Pednekar needs to take a bow! The actress has played the role of a plus size woman with great confidence and panache. In fact, Bhumi and Ayushmann's simple chemistry will make you smile. Sanjay Mishra on the other hand is as usual brilliant. His humour elevates the film to another level.


Direction: Sharat Katariya has managed to keep the film simple yet entertaining and fun. He has given us a refreshingly cute film in the form of Dum Laga Ke Haisha, with which many will be able to connect. However, it is nostalgia which is the most consistent emotion attached to the movie. He captures the 90s era so beautifully that all you can react is 'Oh yes this used to happen'! Though the film dips slightly in the second half, the flawless first half completely makes up for it.


Combo on offer: Romance + Drama = 90s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi with a twist!


Final Verdict: We give the film claps for its effortless entertainment and exceptional performances.
