Mumbai, July 11 (): Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya (HSKD), made under Dharma Production by Karan Johar is released today, pairing lead actors Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan for the second time. Previously, the two had paired in their debut movie ‘Student Of The Year’.
HSKD is touted to be an intense romantic movie and hyped as a tribute film to the hit movie ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’. The trailer of HSKD has itself garnered good response among younger population and ‘Saturday Saturday’, track of the movie had also become a super hit.
The story moves in this way: Kavya (Alia) is a smart typical Punjabi lass from Ambala city. She agrees to marry a rich NRI boy whom she has never seen before. The marriage has been arranged by her father (Ashutosh Rana). She moves to Delhi to buy a designer lehenga for her wedding reception.
There she plans to live life freely on her private terms for some days. She gets an opportunity to meet the happy going lucky boy Rakesh alias Humpty Sharma (Varun Dhawan). He is a typical Delhi guy. After clubbing, adventure and pegs, both fall in love with each other. Rakesh wishes to fulfil all dreams of Kavya including getting the dream ‘lehenga’.
Now, Humpty has to contend with the original US-return groom Angad Bedi (Siddharth Shukla). He is also in the position to win Kavya’s stubborn father Singh. Rakesh does everything to convince and win the hearts of Kavya’s family members and Singh by turning into a waiter for the family.
A tribute to old movie ‘`Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’, the climax HSKD is quite alike to the climax of DDLJ, but HSKD has a twist. Singh even takes some famous lines of Amrish Puri from Yash Raj’s classic movie, ‘Ja Simran – jee le apni zindagi’.
Debutant director Shashank Khaitan has done considerable justice to the story and screenplay. Overall, HSKD is a good film for die-hard fans of romantic-comedy as the film is loaded with lots of fun.
