Ayushmann Khurrana and Nushrat Bahrucha starrer ‘Dream Girl’ has hit the theatres today. Directed by Raaj Shandilya, the movie is completely a ROFL movie from beginning to end.
In this movie, an educated but jobless Karamvir Singh (Ayushmann Khurrana) gets pulled into a friendship call centre that is run by women knitting sweaters or sifting through dhaniya in office for Rs 70,000. Equipped with the innate talent of impersonating a woman’s voice, Karamvir often finds himself dressing up as Radha or Sita in local plays. And this very gift lands him a job as Pooja in a call centre for chats.
Blessed with the gift of gab and a melodious voice, Karamvir aka Pooja soon finds a queue of men vying for his attention and love. From a poetry-obsessed police officer Rajpal (Vijay Raaz) to a lovelorn and brahmachari Mahinder (Abhishek Banerjee), his clients are besotted by the charm of Pooja and her voice. But the situation gets tricky when all his clients fall head over heels in love with Pooja.
Nushrat Bahrucha, who plays Ayushmann’s love interest, makes an appearance as good as a cameo. Someone as talented as Manjot Singh of Fukrey fame is underutilised.
With a run time of 137 minutes, the film is crisp and entertaining. Ayushmann once again proves that he can pull off any role with elan. He plays the character to perfection, getting the nuances right.
If you are looking for a light-hearted comedy this weekend, Ayushmann Khurrana’s Dream Girl should definitely be on your list.
