10: Alia Bhatt’s Wedding – Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania
source: Dainik Bhaskar
A movie with a DDLJ spin. A typical Delhi boy played by Varun Dhawan sees a small town girl Kavya aka Alia Bhatt while she is on a shopping trip and falls for her. However, Alia Bhatt plays the usually hard to get types and befriends him. Varun stays persistent and manages to finally woo the girl. But here come Kahani me twist, the girl’s family has found her a perfect NRI Munda as her to-be husband. The only way Varun Dhawan can win over Alia Bhatt is by proving to the bride’s father that he is better than the NRI Kid. Varun pulls all stops to put up an impressive show and win over the hearts of the Dulhan’s family, sounds familiar?
Yes, this movie does bring back memories of DDLJ where Shahrukh Khan did a similar exercise to win over Kajol from the clamps of her Babuji, late Amrish Puri but that one was much more memorable, no comparisons. But as most Bollywood movies, the drama continues till the climax before all the efforts eventually pay off and the dulhans runs away into Varun’s arms by giving the NRI groom a miss.Typical Bollywood bride, isn’t it?
