Ayushmann Khurrana has steered clear his way to stardom with unique picks like Shubh Mangal Savdhaan, Andhadhun, Badhai Ho, Article 15, and now Dream Girl. All these films have power-packed performances and above all potent script. Dream Girl is a story of a young guy Karamveer set in Mathura-Varanasi living with his father played by Annu Kapoor who is jobless, but talented enough to portray women-centric characters in theatre and plays here and there. However, it frustrates him though lands him a job in a shady call center that titillates lonely and lecherous men. He mints great money through it and finally settles in life with his girlfriend in his arm. But he doesn’t have it easy. There is plenty of dose of laughter in every scene, which takes several twists and turns while the callers start falling in love with him including a girl. How does Karamveer get out of it? And whether he continues with the job and wins the hearts? The film answers it all. Every character in the film has shined through irrespective of their length of the roles.
The film had all the scope to go vulgar given the storyline, but it has been well made and maneuvered some quirky wit and dialogues.
From Annu Kapoor to Ayushmann, everyone is in terrific form. Their antics have been well supported by veteran actors like Vijay Raaj.
It is a laugh riot, which forces you to laugh for the entire length of the film. The movie delivers a sincere message in the end.
Placed in the lanes of Mathura, the screenplay is apt and adheres to the script.
It captures the beauty and culture of Mathura from the word go. The picturesque ghats and surrounding of the city look effervescent.
Raaj Shandilya is in the full control of his first film. He has captivated humor subtly in the film frame by frame. His direction seems effortless, thanks to his years of experience as a writer.
Neat and clean humor with dollops of giggles.
