Shadow of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ)
The film is having a fair amount of resembles with the king of Bollywood Shahrukh Khan’s all time blockbuster hit Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. The makers of the film have presented the film like a modern version of DDLJ, and these references have actually helped the film to gain some buzzing popularity ahead of the mega release. The Official trailer of Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania was a mega hit in terms of YouTube views.
Is the film a very poor attempt to provide us the feel of DDLJ all over again? Or does the young director manage to create another romantic fully Bollywood story that people will remember for long?
The film is having some interesting twist and turns and it also gives a modern feel of the DDLJ. The director has actually succeeded to some extent while adapting the all time hit DDLJ while not forgetting the fact that now we’re in 2021.
Performances of the Star Cast
The rocking chemistry between Alia and Varun is the USP of the film for sure. Both of them have made justice to their roles. But the debutant Sidharth Shukla (Angad Bedi) completely fails to showcase his talent in ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’. However, he does show his physique to the best in order to carry forward his Superman image. Ashutosh Rana (As Alia’s Father) is the steal of the show for sure. His bold acting, perfect dialogue delivery and witty expressions are just too perfect to be ignored by a movie buff.
Highlights of Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania
This movie is indeed a smart modern adaption of our favorite film DDLJ. The music of the film is Stupendufabulous and majority of the songs are already in chartbusters list. The chemistry between Alia and Varun is awesome and their on-screen romance makes you believe in power of love once again. Ashutosh Rana’s power packed acting is another highlighting factor of the film. The film is actually very sweet and any Bollywood Junky will fall for it on first watch.
Negative Points of Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania
The film doesn’t offer any new things as the plot is quite common in terms of a Bollywood film. The characters are not fully flourished and haven’t been used to their optimize level. Sidharth Shukla is a complete waste in the film and the larger than life images of the lead characters make the film illogical to some extent.
Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania is a Bollywood Romantic Comedy film just like most of the films which are produced by the Dharma Productions with too many larger than life wedding scenes, parties and traditional flavors. It does amaze its audiences through some of the passages but overall it’s an average one-time-watch movie especially for young couple and movie buffs.
