Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania is releasing this Friday, 11th July. The movie has been promoted a lot by the lead actors Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan, so with the release closing in, many expectations have been built up by the audience.
Will the movie turn out as per our expectations or will this turn out to be like another Bobby Jasoos. Vidya Balan's movie had a lot of expectation riding on it, the movie received good reviews too but it didn't click and we are not able to figure out why. So will Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania fare well?
The story of Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania is set in Ambala and Delhi, and has influences from a lot of my own personal experiences in Delhi and Punjab. The characters of this film, their flamboyance, their innocence and their attitude towards life are almost my attempt to summarize some amazing moments of my life. Humpty, Kavya and all other characters, though fictional, resonate the lives and journeys of many real people, making them very believable and lovable.
Speaking about her role, Alia said, "I'm playing a crazy Punjabi girl in the film who is full of life and energy. I'm damn sure people will get overwhelmed with my character's energy." On lifting Varun in the poster, she explained, "Girls are no longer meek and timid. They are giving tough competition to boys in each and every sphere of life. This is what we have tried to portray in the film. When a boy can carry a girl, why can't a girl carry a boy? We are equal after all."
Anyways let's take a look on whether we should watch or not watch Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, after which you can decide for yourself if you want to watch the movie or not.
Same old character, as much as Varun would like to defend himself about this being a different role, it's not! Seems like the same old lover boy character, with his contemporaries going the extra mile in movies, Varun has to do something different soon.
A true pataka, each of her movies have been totally different. Irrespective of her young age, the actress has been pushing the envelope to give the audience something different with each film.
Plot seems quite the same, with boy meets girl, girl's parents are against and so on so forth. So there is nothing new to the story. So how they are going to make the movie interesting to watch is something that we have to watch out for.
Now the screen play seems to be different, and even though the story is pretty much same, the screenplay can change the whole ball game. The backdrop of Delhi and the flamboyant characters are something different.
The music is good, which is a major plus point in any Bollywood movie. While Saturday Saturday is a fun peppy number, Samjhawaan is a melodious and soothing song. So in this department, the movie manages to score.
The movie's surprise package may well be TV star Siddharth Shukla, who will be seen in the role of an ideal gentleman. A perfect 'dhamad' for any family. He has aced on television and with his looks and body, he may well take over the Bollywood as well.
Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge Reference:
While too much as been said about the movie's close resemblance to Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, what we would like to add is that we have seen DDLJ, we loved it and won't mind watching it over and over again, but we don't want to see a modern version of cult cinema.
Karan Johar, Producer:
Though we make fun of Karan Johar's typical films, we have to agree on one thing, we love to watch them any which way. No matter how much we laugh and make fun of the scenes or dialogues, we cannot deny how entertaining his movies are. The man has an eye for spotting the gold in anything he sees, so this movie may very well surprise us.
Varun and Alia were earlier paired in Student Of The Year and the duo looked cool together, while in that movie he did not get the girl, in HSKD he finally get the chance to be with his lady love. Their chemistry is good and may be something to watch out for in the movie. This is the first time the actors have done an intimate scene together so that '' be one spicy scene to watch.
Verdict From Trailer
There are some hilarious dialogues in the movie like, Rakesh (Varun) tells Angad (Siddharth), "Sirf dhimag bada hai tera, dil itna sa, aur who toh usse bhi chota hai."
So the trailer does seem fun and entertaining so my verdict would to be that this movie is worth giving a shot.
