Since time immemorial, we have witnessed Bollywood's obsession with the Punjabi culture. The industry's deep-rooted punjab connection could be yet again seen in director Ashima Chibber's latest release Mere Dad Ki Maruti, that features Ram Kapoor, Saqib Saleem and Rhea Chakraborty in the leads. Mere Dad Ki Maruti (MDKM) is an outrageous comedy set against the backdrop of a loud Punjabi wedding in Chandigarh.


Now, before we proceed, lets give you a brief about a few hillarious characters in the movie. Ram Kapoor aka Tej Khullar plays a loud Punjabi father, who share a volatile relationship with his son Sameer (Saqib Saleem). Not to believe, the duo's relationship is so miserable that Tej has gone upto the extent to believe that Sameer was exchanged in the hospital during childbirth. Then, enters the college hottie Jazzleen (Rhea Chakraborty), who is self-obsessed and considers ownself as the 'Shakira' of Chandigarh.

The movie opens with a wedding ceremony in the Khullar family, where the daughter of the family receives a brand new Maruti car as a dowry. But, things takes u--turn after the good-for-nothing Sameer sneaks his dad's new car to impress Jazzleen and how things take a turn when he loses it. Fearing his father's rage, Sameer plans out to replace the stolen Maruti with the help of his best friend.

Mere Dad Ki Maruti is an out-an-out comedy, especially, the hillarious dialogues are sure to tickle the audiences' funny bones. One such would be when Sameer goes upto Jazzleen to propose her. His terrible english "Are you love me?" instead of "Do you love me?" and then, Sameer's friend scolding him for wrong english, "Itni tatti english mein I luv u bolega, toh aisa hi hoga"- One certainly can't stop giggling after hearing such serious 'tatti' english.


Ram Kapoor as an outrageous father, does a convincing job. He perfectly matches up to the role a loud, punjabi dad, who miserably hates his own son and curses the poor soul, every now and then. Saqib Saleem certainly does an impressive job, but, somewhere lacks the screen presence. Rhea Chakraborty is a complete show off in the movie, but unfortunately doesn't get much of oppurtunity to prove herself as an actress.

What you can expect from Mere Dad Ki Maruti?

The aam janta can expect full-too entertainment and sufficient tummy laughs out of this loud masala movie. Especially, certain madcap dialogues might just leave you yelling, whistling, giggling and applauding in the theatres. But, here's a note- Do not expect a good script.


On the whole, Mere Dad Ki Maruti won't dissappoint you. The film takes the audience on a roller coaster ride that will leave them roar with laughter.
