Sunshine. Real. Impeccable. Dum Laga Ke Haisha is Yash Raj Films’ best to date, refreshingly different from any other movie produced by the entertainment studio.
Sharat Katariya helms this “boy forced to marry girl” story set in the 90s of Haridwar. The writer and debut director gives life to Sandhya Verma – one of the finest female characters of Hindi cinema. Endearing, sublime and spunky; this small-town beauty reveals herself in delightful, captivating layers.
Newcomer Bhumi Pednekar lends exquisite charm to Sandhya with a flawless performance. It’s impossible to look away every time she appears on screen. Rarely does an actress get to have a career-defining role in her debut film and she owns it full-throttle.
Ayushmann Khurrana excels with his subtle turn, matching his co-star’s finesse post-interval to take the prize and his girl home for a smacking finale.
Anu Malik’s music gently weaves magic and Kumar Sanu’s voice dominates in songs: Moh Moh Ke Dhaage, Dard Karaara and Tu.
A truly good and honest film has the ability to crawl into your system leaving an exciting aftermath of feel-good quotient. This one does. And how!
Do not watch at your own risk. 🙂
