A Wholesome Attempt with a Dash of Laughter Gone Wrong
Hey there, movie buffs! So, you know how sometimes you watch a movie and you can’t help but wonder what the writers were thinking? Well, that’s a bit like what happened with Dream Girl 2. The movie kicks off with this lively jagrata scene where Ayushmann Khurrana is dancing and singing his heart out. And guess what? The rest of the gang just kinda follows along, trying their best to be funny but, unfortunately, it just doesn’t quite work.
Ayushmann Khurrana Takes Center Stage in Dream Girl 2
You remember that director Raaj Shaandilyaa who made the first movie in 2019? He’s back with Dream Girl 2, and he’s got some pretty solid actors in the mix like Vijay Raaz and Seema Pahwa. But let’s be honest, Ayushmann Khurrana is carrying most of the load here. He’s doing his best to breathe life into a story that’s, well, not exactly bursting with excitement.
A Shining Moment in a Sea of Failed Laughs
Hold on, though! There’s a moment that really shines. It’s when Khurrana’s character gets all righteous and starts giving everyone a piece of his mind. It’s one of those moments that really shows off his skills. Sadly, the scenes leading up to that don’t quite land the comedic punch they’re aiming for. They’re a bit like a balloon that just doesn’t pop.
Missing the Comedy Mark
Okay, so picture this: there’s a scene where our main character is pretending to be a married woman and tells someone not to cry because it’ll make them laugh. But guess what? It’s not as funny as it sounds. In fact, it’s kinda like when you try to tell a joke that falls flat, and everyone’s just left wondering what happened.
Love, Money, and a Dash of Impersonation
Let’s dive into the story a bit. We’re in Mathura, following Karam Singh (played by Khurrana). He’s this performer who switches between male and female roles during these things called jagratas. He’s got a thing for Pari Shrivastava (Ananya Panday), who’s studying to be a lawyer. But, of course, there’s a catch. Karam’s family is buried under debt, and their ancestral home is basically a crumbling mess. Pari’s dad (Manoj Joshi) lays down the law: get a job, fix your house, and get some money before you even think about marrying my daughter.
Twists and Turns in Relationships
Here’s where things get interesting. Karam’s buddy Smiley (Manjot Singh) has his own love story with Sakina (Anusha Mishra). And then there’s this twist involving Abu Saleem (Paresh Rawal), Sakina’s dad. He wants Smiley to help his son out of a post-breakup slump before he can marry Sakina. Oh, and Karam? He’s back on the scene, pretending to be a psychiatrist to help his friend.
Dream Girl 2 at the Box Office
Alright, so let’s talk numbers. Dream Girl 2 might not be as huge as the first movie, but it’s still a comeback for Ayushmann Khurrana after a few not-so-great films. It’s expected to make a good amount of money, maybe not blockbuster level, but enough to keep the box office buzzing until the next big thing hits theaters. People are saying it could bring in around 80 to 95 crores in India. Let’s see how it all unfolds!
