Ayushmann Khurrana, known for his immersive acting, once again delivers a captivating performance in ‘Dream Girl 2’. Following the footsteps of its predecessor, where he enchanted men with his voice as a female caller, this time Ayushmann dons the persona of Pooja, ensnaring troublemakers in his web of deceit. While the concept may sound implausible in reality, Ayushmann’s on-screen charisma propels the film with absolute panache.
The Story of ‘Dream Girl 2’:
The narrative kicks off with Karam (Ayushmann Khurrana), a former Ram Leela performer turned Mata Ke Jagrat singer. Despite his shift, Karam is engulfed in debt alongside his father Jagjit (Annu Kapoor). His affection for Pari (Ananya Panday) remains unwavering, yet her father Jaipal (Manoj Joshi) poses a challenge—Karam must amass 25 lakhs, secure a home, and a stable job to marry Pari. Guided by his friend Smiley (Manjot Singh) and Jagjit, Karam ventures into impersonating a girl named Pooja at Sona Bhai’s (Vijay Raaz) dance bar. As the need for money persists, Karam’s escapades lead to hilarious mix-ups involving various characters, igniting a cascade of humor and chaos.
Dream Girl 2 Review
Director Raaj Shaandilyaa wastes no time in plunging into the core of the story. Although the premise of alluring men as Karam’s female alter ego stretches credulity, the film compensates with uproarious situations that keep you engrossed, overlooking the logic gap. The film is a treasure trove of comic veterans like Annu Kapoor, Asrani, Paresh Rawal, Vijayraj, Seema Pahwa, and Rajpal Yadav. Shaandilyaa orchestrates amusing misunderstandings among them, yet the film falters in certain parts due to superfluous character tracks that elongate the narrative. The storyline lacks substantial twists and turns, and the climax feels slightly prolonged. The humor is weaved into everyday life through witty one-liners, although some dialogues border on the juvenile. The music, anchored by the catchy “Dil Ka Telephone 2.0” by Meet Brothers, fails to leave a lasting impression, barring a few exceptions.
Ayushmann Khurrana’s captivating portrayal, alongside a star-studded ensemble cast, results in ‘Dream Girl 2’ offering a hearty dose of entertainment. Despite its minor flaws, the film is an enjoyable watch that tickles your funny bone with its quirky narrative and comedic brilliance.
