Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya film review

Film: Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania

Cast: Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan

Director: Shashank Khaitan

Rating: ***1/2

Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania follows Punjabi kudi Kavya Pratap Singh (Alia Bhatt), who is set for an arranged marriage with NRI Angad Bedi(Siddharth Shukla). But everything goes haywire, when on a shopping trip to Delhi, she meets and falls in love with Humpty Sharma (Varun Dhawan).  

There are no killings, no psychopaths going berserk, and yet Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, from director Shashank Khaitan, hits the sweet spot by breezing in on waves of humour, heartache and ravishing romance. While the film's premise is deceptively simple, the director has added some twists and turns, making the film a fun watch. Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania flows seamlessly over two hours and 15 minutes, as we watch the characters fall in love, argue, reconcile, mature or not and more. The film is a dynamite entertainment, especially in it's rousing first half.
Bollywood's classic Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge is celebrated with bawdy humour and unabashed heart in Shashank's Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. The film wins you over by not overplaying its hand, allowing some feelings to go unexpressed, like it's climax.

One of the major things that works for the film is the acting, which is of the highest rank. Alia and Varun have never been better and Ashutosh Rana gives a performance that will be talked about for a long time.

Alia, whose small voice is surprisingly soulful, is at her best. She is startlingly good, tackling the role without a cheesy grab for sympathy. Paired with Varun they perform subtle magic. The onscreen couple has forged an intimacy you can't pin down! Simply amazing chemistry!

To watch or not to watch:

Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania makes us feel euphoric about movies, their power, their ability to move us to both laughter and tears.
