The script was written in 2007, almost eight years before the release. See more »
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 »

Do yourself a favor, go and grab the tickets and embrace Dumb Laga Ke Haisha
When a movie teaser is released, it has to be catchy and interesting that should fuel the curiosity among the moviegoers to spend few bucks for that cinema. Dumb Laga Ke Haisha exactly works on that strategy. It had limited release ( 769 screens all over India) with shoe-string budget ( 13 crores) and unknown star-cast. What worked in its favor - is applauding performances, immensely likable story and mind-blowing script.
Marriages are made in heaven but for Prem( Aayush Khurrana), it was made in hell. In Dumb Laga Ke Haisha, marriage is made between two people of different background, different thinking and in different size.
New-bee director Sharat Katariya( 10 ML Love) is probably the talent to watch out for. The theme of the movie is simple yet noble, set in the mid-90's with background of beautiful city of Haridwar about simple, ordinary and middle-class business family which will remind of classic movies by Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Basu Chatterjee. The movie is intrinsic to its core right from the beginning with hilarious moments enough to tickle your funny-bone. The initial reel will definitely bring down the house when the boy meets the girl. Even the divorce scene, the fight between the neighbours has been executed brilliantly that would put a smile on your face. Hats off to the director and script writer for making the best out of it. Background score and music is limited yet convincing. Art direction representing a typical middle-class household is worth-mentioning. Cinematography capturing the essence of Haridwar is eye-catching. Coming to the performances, Ayush Khurrana does a fabulous job as a push-over, introvert, loyal son. He does a good comeback after series of flops. New talent Bhumi Pednekar should walk away with few awards this year. This is her first film and the amount of maturity she shows in her acting is astounding. Sanjay Mishra as usual is brilliant.
Do yourself a favor, go and grab the tickets and embrace Dumb Laga Ke Haisha. Astounding 5/5
