Dream Girl Review
Raaj Shaandilyaa’s comedy of errors is a well-versed script incorporating a multitude of humorous one-liners and wits. However, it’s this very humour that forms a huge impediment in the story’s development. The 137 minutes film ceases to surpass the ordinary notion, it’s delivered as a lengthy comic skit.
Even though the movie commences on a promising foot, it loses its gleam in the second half. Due to multiple plots and diversity of fresh faces squeezed in, Dream Girl fails to reach its preliminary hype.
Besides this, Ayushmann Khurrana and Annu Kapoor slay their roles profoundly with a stunning performance from both ends. Khurrana once again showcases his ability to execute any role professionally, indulging himself into the character’s shoes and delivering quintessence wherever required. Annu’s transformation from a bothered-lonesome father to a languishing lover conveys a thoughtful impression.
Furthermore, Vijay Raaz character showcased as a poetic policeman glued in an uneasy marriage is spectacular, it would have been better if Karamvir’s love interest was replaced with Fukrey’s Manjot Singh in place of Nushrat’s cameo appearance. The movie loses its crisp somewhere between all the laughter but doesn’t fall flat in delivering a unidimensional, clean perspective on friendship call centres.
