There are quite high expectations from Dharma Production's upcoming HUMPTY SHARMA KI DULHANIA, and the first and foremost reason being, yes, obviously, it being a product of the premier production house, Dharma, whose association with melodious and memorable music is well known. The music is helmed by very promising as well as experienced Sachin-Jigar and Sharib-Toshi. So let's get on and check out whether this HUMPTY SHARMA's dulhania offers (even) half as memorable music as Yash Raj Films' evergreen DILWALE DULHANIA.

The album kicks off with 'Kudi Saturday Saturday', a rehashed and rearranged ( Sharib-Toshi) version of the Punjabi super hit dance number of the same title by Indeep Bakshi and Badshah, the original composers! The makers do a good job of tailoring it so that it sounds fresher and quirkier and so no doubts about why this number is the party anthem of the youth & Gen X.

As if one song was not enough, the makers use another super hit soulful number, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan's 'Samjhawan', once again rearranged by Sharib-Toshi. Super singer, Arijit Singh has been chosen to do a Rahat but he simply fails to create the same magic. Even 'surili' Shreya's presence does not lift the song to that level.

The makers have added another unplugged version of 'Samjhawan' and it has been rendered well by Alia who has previously done a good job as a singer for Rahman's HIGHWAY.

A fun, festive celebration / wedding folk based number, 'Daingad Daingad', where all the members of the family relate their love stories and how they got married in a humorous manner. The song is sung by a host of artists like Udit Narayan, Divya Kumar, Akriti Kakkar, Pratibha Baghel, Deepali Sathe and Niharika Sinha and is fun as long as it lasts.


They say, all's well that ends well. Sadly, in HUMPTY SHARMA KI DULHANIA, it doesn't. The unconvincing climax doesn't do justice to the otherwise good film and sticks out like a sore thumb. It seems the director ran out of ideas and took the most convenient path.

In a love story, the performances of your lead actors are vital and they certainly don't disappoint in this one. Varun is very effortlessly confident while Alia Bhatt delivers an excellent performance. The chemistry between them is quite palpable. Siddharth Shukla makes a fine big screen debut. Ashutosh Rana is good. A special mention to Gaurav Pandey and Sahil Vaid who play Varun's friends in the film. They are terrific!

Barring the climax, HUMPTY SHARMA KI DULHANIA is a delightful film which shouldn't be missed.


Right from day one, the makers of HUMPTY SHARMA KI DULHANIA have been calling it a modern day tribute to DILWALE DULHANIA LE JAYENGE. It's actually more than a tribute. There are quite a few references to the Shahrukh Khan-Kajol starrer in HUMPTY SHARMA KI DULHANIA. Even the plot bears an uncanny resemblance to the 1995 film.

So is it a worthy tribute? Well, for the most part of it, yes.

Ambala girl Kavya Pratap Singh (Alia Bhatt) sports a tattoo at the back of her neck which reads pataka. And she's quite like one - vivacious and spunky. On her trip to Delhi, where she lands up to shop for her wedding outfit, she accidently meets the irresponsible and jugadu Humpty Sharma (Varun Dhawan). Humpty has the hots for Kavya and even helps in saving her friend's marriage. As expected, they fall in love. But she eventually returns to Ambala for her impending marriage, fixed by her kabhi naram kabhi garam father Mr. Singh (Ashutosh Rana).

Most romantic movies are predictable and HUMPTY SHARMA KI DULHANIA is no exception. But the way debutant director Shashank Khaitan takes you through it, is what makes it worthwhile. It's a fun ride which makes you laugh and even go 'aww' in certain portions. However, some of the songs do hamper the film's flow.


They say, all's well that ends well. Sadly, in HUMPTY SHARMA KI DULHANIA, it doesn't. The unconvincing climax doesn't do justice to the otherwise good film and sticks out like a sore thumb. It seems the director ran out of ideas and took the most convenient path.
