Storyline

It is the 1990s, the tape-cassette is dying, CDs will soon be the rage and a regular arranged marriage will turn out to be a perfect mismatch. Prem (Ayushmann Khurrana) is a shy music buff who runs a tape recording shop in Haridwar. Sandhya (Bhumi Pednekar) likes to dance to the band tunes at her own wedding. He has nightmares about drawing a blank at his English exam. She is about to carve a niche for herself as a teacher. But now, they are married and they are supposed to spend a lifetime together - and he is still trying to find balance on their scooter ride together. From overcoming his fear of the English language to dealing with an overbearing father, he discovers that his oversized wife, who he thought was a spanner in his spool, will actually lead him to something quite cool.

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 »

Must Watch Movie of 2015. Ayushmann Khurrana has a long way to go!
3 March 2015 | by jay-techie2007See all my reviews

DLKH brings the much needed freshness in Bollywood romance movies. And it comes with a very strong message woven around a very sweet love story. The direction is impeccable with moderated melodrama.

Ayushmann Khurrana might never get the stardom like the Khans and the Kapoors but he is definitely one of those actors never afraid of doing path breaking movies and top them up with amazing natural acting - be it comedy or drama. But he gets a good competition from the new girl Bhumi Padnekar who delivers a very good performance, depicting a struggle of a fat girl in a white skin - size zero obsessed society of India. Sanjay Mishra, playing the role of Ayushmann's father, gives a memorable performance with really good dialog delivery topped up with brilliant comic timing.

The length of the movie is unusually short for a Bollywood movie but then quality is always more important than quantity. Overall, for someone in a mood to watch a light romantic movie, your search ends at DLKH.

This movie comes easily into the list of "movies I can watch anytime".
