Storyline

Prem Prakash Tiwari (Ayushmann Khurrana) listening to Kumar Sanu is the film's opening shot. Set in Haridwar, 1990s, the film captures the nascent feel of the town. Prem owns a cassette shop in the local market. His father is keen to get him hitched and the family goes to a local temple to meet Sandhya (Bhumi Pednekar). B.Ed, waiting for a teaching job, the most visible thing about her is her weight. Coming from a patriarchal cognitive set-up, she doesn't fit the quintessential idea of beautiful. And still, the school drop out Prem must marry her because he is incapable of attaining a girl with 'Juhi-Chawla-level-of-looks.' In an elaborate community-wedding ceremony, Prem and Sandhya get married. Their wedding night is uncomfortable with neither treading towards establishing conjugal relations. Prem has in his own reasons and the girl is naturally shy. Next morning on a call, she announces it to a friend and the whole family finds out. Written by King Motwani

Goofs

The dialect of Hindi spoken by actors in the film is not from the region where the plot takes place. The characters speak a dialect which is prevalent in southern and central parts of Uttar Pradesh and in the region of Bundelkhand. The story is located in Haridwar which is situated in foothills of Uttarakhand. A chaste hindi (khadi boli) is spoken in these parts. Also at times the dialect switches to Haryanavi dialect which is spoken in Yamuna-Satluj doab, not in upper Ganga plains. See more »

A film made from heart
28 February 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A film released.... a stereotype breaks.... an actress doesn't need to be size zero to become a heroine.... A strong story line, screenplay, dialogues, performances by Ayushman khurana and the newcomer bhumi phednekar.... is ready to surprise the audiences.... Music by Anu Malik gives a down to memory lane ride of the 90's.... its a Kumar Sanu Musical all the way...this is the first time i saw audiences sitting right till the end until the song is finished.... Finally with Dumb LAGA KE HAISHA.... Yash raj Films comes up with another love story with a standard of DDLJ and Rab ne bana di jodi..... Its a thumbs up for this movie.....
