    Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (2014) - Review

    Touted as a tribute to Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge,Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania presents Varun Dhawan in a completely different role from his previous films.Here he is a sweet simpleton guy,mischievous,friendly,funny and innocent youngster.His two friends Gaurav Pandey and Sahil Vaid have really done well and complement him in every scene.Alia is here in a character similar to she portrayed in Highway and does pretty well.And after a long time we see Ashutosh Rana in a prominent role.

    Below are three of my favorite songs from this film.

    1)Samjhawan: A recreated song for Varun Dhawan & Alia Bhatt starrer HSKD, This one is a Rahat FAK's superhit song Main Tenu Samjhawa Ki from Punjabi film Virsa, The song is beautifully sung by Arijit Singh & Shreya Ghoshal.

    2)Lucky Tu Lucky Me : The song is composed by Sachin-Jigar and sung by Varun Dhawan, Benny Dayal & Anushka Manchanda.

    3)Emotional Fool: The song is sung by Toshi Sabri & composed by Sharib-Toshi.

    Shashank Khaitan is the Director and writer of this film and he has done pretty good.For all those who felt that Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania is Shashank Khaitan's debut film, this news will be a bit of a shocker as his debut film was Sherwani Kahaan Hai, a film which never saw the light of the day.

    Shashank Khaitan said, "Yes, Sherwani Kahaan Hai was indeed my debut film, which I made it with a group of my friends from Subhash Ghai's Whistling Woods. The film mostly starred newcomers like Pavail Gulati, Aahana Kumra (who are now acting in Big B's Yudh) and others. There were also cameos by Naseeruddin Shah and Ratna Pathak Shah. The film was made on a small budget. We tried our level best to release the film, but couldn't manage to do so."

    When asked about a certain 'Aki' whose name was featured in the credits of Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania as 'In loving memory of my brother Aki', Shashank said, "Aki aka Akshat Trivedi, was a very close friend of mine, who also featured in Sherwani Kahaan Hai. Sadly, he passed away few years back."

    Mainly the filming was taken place in Mumbai and second schedule completed on 12 March in Punjab.Dhawan hints about his character, "Humpty is a character; he's not the hero. He is someone who says inappropriate things at the wrong time." The filming was completed in Ambala, Chandigarh, Khan Market and Delhi University,at a budget of INR17.5 crore (US$2.9 million).It was reported on the makers on the movie shot a song named Saturday Saturday in Mumbai Film City recreating famous Colosseum for a futuristic avatar song. Song is choreographed by Ahmed Khan
