Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania
Report dated 11/07/2014 @ 6:37 PM

Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania He's Sir Hump-a-lot (or at least make out-a-lot). Maybe that's why his nick is 'Humpty'. Typical Delhi ka munda, part-dilwala, part-gunda. So we have a classic 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayenge' in the mix. Fast-forwarded to today (18 years later). Where love is a 'Facebook' post and the generational shift allows you to 'makeout' with your gal and smoke-up with your papaji-in-law-to-be. All is cool!

Yet, at its core, the story retains its roots in the chhotta-chhotta shehers its set in. The 'surround sound' coming from a big-fat-Punjabi -wedding with the usual paajis, vijis, bijis, maajis ... Oh-ji!

The dulhania here is an Ambala girl, with oodles of attitude - Kavya Singh (Alia) - who agrees to marry NRI boy Angad (Sidharth) of her bullying bauji's (Ashutosh) choice. Her demand is a Kareena Kapoor style designer lehenga (even the couture has caught up with time). Kavya takes off to Delhi to buy her shaadi-ka-joda, where she meets Humpty (Varun); their love blossoms over party-sharty (she slips out of *patialas* and downs the 'pegs'), coffee, cuddles and conversations.

But Humpty has to win over the stubborn Singh sir - and break this 'tailor-made' wedding with a 'designer dulha' - to take home his dulhania. And he will go as far as pickling desi achaar for the girl - only to please papa.

The strength of Shashank's debut film (tribute to 'DDLJ') is the performances and characters, whether it is Humpty-Kavya's cutesy, charming chemistry or the unbeatable boy-gang bonding with Shonty and Poplu (Saahil Vaid - howlarious act!).

Unlike the characters, the story doesn't enthuse or grow beyond the original plot, but it's pinned with warm, delightful moments and laughable dialogues. The music is average. Alia is spunky, spontaneous and simply superb. Varun has put all heart into this role; he doesn't let Humpty fall even for a moment. Sidharth looks smashing, but doesn't get much scope (disappearing without a warning), while Ashutosh shines through.

HSKD has plenty of feel-good moments, but nothing that will leave you punch-drunk. For romantics who believe in their dils and their dulhanias.
