MOVIE REVIEW: Dream Girl is a high dose of humour, an out-and-out comedy film loaded with some great performances. Writer and director Raaj Shaandilyaa successfully delivered a complete family entertainer film where the viewers are bound to be entertained with its funny characters, hilarious punches and witty one-liners.
The first half of the film starts off really well with the introduction of a small-town boy Karam played by Ayushmann. From the time he is a kid, he does a fine job of imitating women’s voice. His talent for impersonating a woman’s voice has led him to become Sita in Ram Leela plays and later to a friendship call centre that employs women to sweet-talk lonely men. Karam is forced to take up a job at this call centre, run by the W ji played by Rajesh Sharma in order to pay the loans taken by his father. W ji persuades Karam to turn into Pooja and talk to his callers.
The intermission point is very intriguing, post-interval the film is a roller coaster ride of humour when Jagjeet Singh played by Annu Kapoor goes crazy over Pooja and all her lovers decide to meet up with their Dream Girl. With a runtime of 137 minutes, editor Hemal Kothari keeps the film crisp and entertaining. Screenplay by Nirmaan D Singh and Raaj Shaandilyaa is excellent and engaging.
Ayushmann Khurrana is outstanding, he nails it yet again and shines out with his acting chops and comic timing. Once again he showed that he can slips into any character effortlessly and can take up any challenging role. Annu Kapoor never fails to amaze the audiences. He has done complete justice to his character, especially in the second half his character steals the show.
Vijay Raaz manages to make you laugh with his shayaris, comic timing and dialogue delivery. Abhishek Banerjee, Raj Bhansali and Manjot Singh also manage to tickle your funny bones. Nushrat Bharucha, Nidhi Bisht and Rajesh Sharma are decent in their limited roles, they do not have much to offer as their character isn’t sketched well enough.
Meet Bros’ music is peppy and works well with the script. Dil Ka Telephone is a delight to watch and suits the entertaining narrative of the film. Ik Mulaqaat is a soulful track and treat for music lovers. Radhe Radhe and Gat Gat are just average.
Overall Hit ya Flop Rating: 3.8 out of 5
