Ayushmann Khurrana’s Dream Girl starts off really well with an introduction of Karamveer Singh, played by Ayushmann, who makes you laugh till the interval and even after it. He is displayed jobless despite being highly educated. Annu Kapoor plays Ayushmann’s father in the film who has drowned himself in debt. After landing a job in a call centre and finding the perfect girl to marry, Ayushmann clears his father’s debt and is enjoying life. Of course, it’s only a matter of time until everything falls apart and things take a chaotic turn.
While attempting to deliver a very important dialogue in the climax sequence, Ayushmann manages to make you laugh with his dialogue delivery.
Ayushmann does a pretty great job but fell weak when it came to delivering an impacting series of dialogues towards the end.
The writing falls weak Raaj Shaandilyaa, who is written and directed the film, could have done away with a few scenes in that area.
While Nushrat Bharucha has not a lot of scope for her character until the very end. Nidhi Bisht’s performance is also not too impacting. You don’t fall in love with Nidhi Bisht’s performance just because you hate men or because of certain bad experiences. I wish there was a stronger reason for it. You’ll want to listen to all the songs composed by Meet Bros on a loop but you already know that.
Dream Girl is a hilarious film despite a few flaws, it keeps you entertained but you end up expecting more from Ayushmann-Annu duo that seems quite weak.
Abhishek Banerjee, Annu Kapoor, Manjot Singh and Vijay Raaz also manage to tickle your funny bones just as much as Ayushmann does.
