Dum Laga Ke Haisha is all about the true love or like their tag line reads, about love that comes in all sizes. The movie gives us a picture of reality but with a lot of entertainment attached to it. Dum Laga Ke Haisha is a comedy movie that promises some good laughs and is gearing to break all stereotypes with their lead heroine Bhumi.

Dum Laga Ke Haisha may not be that hyped but the film is worth the watch for it is a laugh riot with a message that says love comes in all sizes. I recommend a theatre watch so book your tickets soon people!

Sharat Katariya noted for writing Bheja Fry, Hum Tum Shabana, marks an impressive directorial debut with the flick, which is made with heart. He has a good grip on the screenplay while the execution is well graphed.

However, earlier too there have been movies dealing with the unusual pairs and most of them have been truly magnificent with their final outcome. Dum Laga Ke Haisha keeping the premise similar lays a different result. The odd pairing of Sandhya an XL lady and comparatively linear Prem is humorous and emotional as well.

Odd pairing isn’t an issue but it’s the understanding and compatibility, which matters the most in a marital life. Sharat Katariya deals with this simple thought through an extra-ordinary measure in Dum Laga Ke Haisha.

Nostalgia is the only emotion that matches love in intensity and Sharat Katariya’s Dum Laga Ke Haisha milks our nostalgia for that bygone era to wonderful effect. This is as crowd-pleasing as a film gets, only without mawkish manipulation or contrivances. It’s also the best Yash Raj film in a very long time.

Director Katariya keeps things very simple, yet entertaining and relatable. If you’ve had first hand experience with a situation like the one in which the film’s lead couple find themselves, they’ll find enough to appreciate in Dum Laga Ke Haisha.

Dum Laga Ke Haisha, written and directed by Sharat Katariya, is worth its weight in gold. It is crafted with a string of wonderfully well-written scenes that flow seamlessly into each other, eventually culminating in a heart-warming climax.

The film plays primarily with emotions but not for a moment does it stray anywhere near what might be deemed excessive. YRF hasn't produced a better film in years. Dum Laga Ke Haisha is more than just a must-watch.
