Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania is very much synonymous to Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ). Shashank Kaitan, the director has been hugely inspired by that two decade old film (DDLJ) and thus, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania is the result!
Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania is a combination of entertainment, emotions along with some peppy music.Shashank Kaitan has woven the story very well.
A film by Karan Johar under Dharma Productions has to be entertaining. Being the most influential faces in the indian cinema, Karan was more than happy to do this film.
He says, "I really liked the script and I found it very funny. I also loved the fact that the classic ‘boy-meets-girl' tale has been made into a unique and quirky youth drama for the modern generation."

The story goes on like this...
When Kavya Pratap Singh, a chirpy, yet fiesty girl from Ambala, decides to make a trip to Delhi for her marriage shopping, she meets a young, carefree Delhi lad, Humpty Sharma. Humpty's father is the owner of a campus bookstore, where Humpty and his two best friends, Shonty and Poplu, have grown up together and which remains their hangout spot even now.
Kavya is unattainable for Humpty initially, which makes her even more endearing to him. But being a Delhi boy, he is not the one to give up so easily. With some help from his two best friends, he finds out all about her and through an interesting turn of events (including a ploy to save Kavya's friend Gurpreet's marriage), they start growing closer to each other.
As per plan, once Kavya's trip ends, she heads back to Ambala, knowing very well that her father, the very strict, yet loving Mr. Singh, would never accept her love for Humpty. But even though they both weren't looking for love, love happened. So Humpty, accompanied by his two friends, decides to go get Kavya.
That's the beginning of a journey for him that he wouldn't have imagined undertaking even in the wildest of his dreams. Humpty, against all odds, decides to convince Kavya's family to agree to his alliance with her. How he does this and if he succeeds in his mission forms the rest of the story...
Will it be a box office hit or a dud?
Just as DDLJ was a blockbuster, Karan Johar is sure of HSKD making it big. Going by the story, the songs which are very peppy and youthful, and the way it has been filmed, i feel that Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania will be a family entertainer which will also make it big at the box office.
