Storyline

When Kavya Pratap Singh, a chirpy yet feisty girl from Ambala, makes a trip to Delhi for her marriage shopping, she meets a young, carefree Delhi lad, Humpty Sharma. Humpty's father owns a campus bookstore where Humpty and his two best friends, Shonty and Poplu, have grown up together and which remains their hangout spot even now. Kavya is unattainable for Humpty initially, which makes her even more endearing to him, but being a Delhi boy, he is not one to give up so easily. With some help from his two best friends, he finds out all about her, and through an interesting turn of events (including a ploy to save Kavya's friend Gurpreet's marriage), they start growing closer to each other. The more time they spend with each other, their love-hate banter grows, but their chemistry is apparent. They are both different, yet very similar as people.

A full-on romantic Comedy n masala entertainer!
22 July 2014 | by gaurav219See all my reviews

Such a sweet full on masala entertainer film, although it ended a bit abruptly but its okk given the soulful performance of Alia n Vishal. Was the first film i watched after almost 6 months being very busy n the movie did not disappoint me at all. Thumbs Up Dharma Productions once again! The comedy is very natural n well timed n natural, Alia looks ravishing! Main Tenu Samjhawan will mesmerize you! Technically the film is very sound n also sweet part in the film was very subtle portrayal of India's emerging Metro young generation which is very fun loving, is bubbly, liberal, westernized in dressing but still Indian values do rule the heart of almost all of them. The Indian roots strong enough to not go away despite generations of change. How? For that one has to watch the film for e.g the Female protagonist (Alia) decides to return the Marriage Jewellery set from the lady they had got in form of ransom because immense emotional attachment a married Indian women has with her Marriage jewelery set. That is s true reflection of deep embedded Indian values!
