TRADE & CRITICAL ANALYSIS

Writer-director AkashChaudhary has chosen good youthful social subjective story.Anand Sharma and R.P. Chaudhary are fail to develop  its screenplay. Dialogues  are silly. Even script is weak, but Akash has handled well. Performance-wise, NitinChaudhary, RiaKhaund, Baby SonuChaudhary and HunzaSabirare good. Ravi Pandey is excellent. Swapnil Joshi, Nitin Bhatia, Shubhankar Paul, NiloferGesawat, Satyam Chaudhary, Rishi Dube are okay. The film is full time-pas. Musically, fair. Camerawork by Jodh Singh Pabla&Chandan Singh are quit-well. Sameer Shaikh’s editing is poor. Publicity is Nil.

 

At the box office, the film released by Ruth films all over with average opening response. The film made in very low budget and may cover its cost.

REVIEW: DUM LAGA KE HAISHA 

Banner: Yash Raj Films

Producer: Aditya Chopra, Maneesh Sharma

Director: Sharat Katariya

Music: Anu Malik

Release Date: 27th February 2015

Cast: Ayushmann Khurrana, Bhumi Pednekar, Sanjay Mishra, Alka Amin, Seema Pahwa, Sheeba Chaddha, Sanjeev Vatsa, Shardul Rana, Chandrachoor Rai, Shrikant Verma and Mahesh Sharma.

Rating: 2.5 / 5 Star.

THE STORY

Prem Prakash Tiwari (Ayushmanm Khurana) is neither qualified nor talented, a high-school dropout and a die-hard fan of singer Kumar Sanu lives in Haridwar with his family. Under pressure from his family Prem is married to B.Ed graduate and overweight Sandhya Verma (Bhumi Pednekar) who wants to become a teacher. When a very disinterested Prem does 'nothing' on their wedding night, this news reaches the ears of both the families, thus making them nervous and also scared about the couple's future relationship. A co-incident happens between them and Sandhya files a case for divorce with Prem. As a legal formality, the court decides a time of 6 months for the couple to spend with each other, in case they have a change of mind. Later, what forms comes out in the climax.

CRITICAL ANALYSIS

The story is about a mismatch-couple’s marriage life. Where husband does not physically attracted to his wife, feels guilty and thinks his wife has too much fat figure and she is educated more than him. Writer has written very good story but failed to compiled many plots in the screenplay. Performance-wise; newfind Bhumi Pednekar is excellent actor, she has performed extremely well. Ayushmanm Khurana is also best in his performance. Sanjay Mishrta as  Prem’s father Chandrabhan Tiwari Seema Pahwa as Subhadra Rani are at the top of their comic role. Alka Amin, Sheeba Chaddha, Sanjeev Vatsa, Shardul Rana, Chandrachoor Rai, Shrikant Verma and Mahesh Sharma lend good support. Kumar Sanu does a cameo is okay.

TRADE ANALYSIS

 Director Sharat Katariya has well handled the film on his own script. The film is  a fond tribute to Hindi film Music of 1990s and is set in 1995 in Haridwar and he has carefully refrains from creating a staple, syrupy affair. The first half is better than second half. Music director Anu Malik has given functional tunes and has failed to repeat his magic. Background score by Andrea Guerra is fair. Camerawork (Manu Anand) , sound (Shajith Koyeri) and editing (Namrata Rao) are perfect. Production and technical values are good. The publicity was average.

VERDICT

At the box-office, the film will be enjoyed more by B & C class audiences in the interiors.

They make her ready to be a heroine with the help of Bulloo (Vishal Acharya) and demands money. What happens crux in the climax.


CRITICAL & TRADE ANALYSIS
The film is based on bollywood’s reality, what happens with all strugglers, freshers. Debutant director Ranveer Pratap Singh  has well handled the film on his own script. The film has only one song ‘Sab
Saale Filmi Hain’ in background and comes many time with the mood of sequences and explains the story in right way.  Performance-wise; Ajay Raj Tomar, Preet Saluja, Chakshu Tiwari and Vishal Acharya are good. Rana Kumar & Ankur Verma are fair in brief role. Rest cast cast are okay. Ravi’s cinematography is good. Sandeep Kumar Sandy has edited brilliantly. Production and technical values are proper. Publicity is weak.
 At the box-office, due to lack of publicity the film is Flop.
