Hum Do Hamare Do Movie Review: ‘Hum Do Hamare Do’ Is A Nice Blend Of Comedy, Drama and Emotions. A Perfect Diwali Bonanza For Family Audience!
Family dramas are very common in Bollywood but you can't deny the fact that this is one of the most loved genre in India. It isn't just about entertainment but that emotional connect too. Those days are gone when bollywood used to make films like Hum Aapke Hain Koun and Hum Saath Saath Hain, and this new generation filmmakers and audience, both wanted a change. Abhishek Jain's Diwali offering Hum Do Hamare Do may not be a direct answer to those popular 90s flicks but it's certainly a nice attempt on its level. This new-age family dramas people always talk about will get better sooner or later, but let's not miss some real fun now. Hum Do Hamare Do has everything you expect from a Mainstream Family Entertainer but moreover it's that one film which actually tries to convince you about family values without using blood-relations.The film is about young lovebirds Dhruv (Rajkummar Rao) and Anya (Kriti Sanon) who decides to get married. The problem is, Dhruv is an orphan and Anya wants to marry a man who has a perfect family of her dreams. A hilarious ride begins when Dhruv brings fake parents who happened to be lovebirds in their younger days. Two parallel love stories of two different generations are configured to provide you hilarious gags. Prashant Jha's screenplay makes it easy for you to understand things but you do smell what's coming later. That family melodrama is avoided to keep the humour alive and that's the best thing about Hum Do Hamare Do's screenplay.This film becomes different from other family dramas because it has young brigade teamed up with experienced actors like Paresh Rawal and Ratna Pathak Shah. Whatever Paresh Rawal couldn't do in Priyadarshan's Hungama 2, he does it here and how. That old Paresh Rawal we adored in films like Hera Pheri, Hungama, Bhagam Bhag is back with the bang. Purushottam Mishra is by far his most humourous character recently. Supporting him, Ratna Pathak Shah is just brilliant. Her expressions and dialogue delivery looks so real and it doesn't beocme spoofy at all. Kriti Sanon and Rajkummar Rao makes a lovely chemistry. The major comedy scenes have gone into Paresh Rawal's kitty but the supporting cast is equally responsible to make them look hystericalAbhishek Jain and Deepak Venkateshan's writing is good but not flawless. You can easily notice some blunders here and there but as we know family dramas are meant to have few loopes so that you can create a filmy experience. The best thing done by Director Abishek Jain is that he didn't leave it lose anywhere except for the songs. He couldn't battle out that stereotype notion of bollywood family dramas that you have to have two songs before interval and two after that. The film loses some grip there but those two family songs are surely engaging. A glamorous number which appears with end credits is tappy enough. The film may look slow at the beginning but that's because he has something fantastic to show later. It keeps you busy for two hours so there'll be no moments to have a little nap. Overall, Hum Do Hamare Do is funny, dramatic and emotionally well balanced. There's something in the film which makes it a recommendable product that two generations in the family should watch together.
