Dum Laga Ke Haisha is something old yet it looks new because it’s come in such a time when everyone has forgotten olden times. Old because it set in 1995 and everything in the film is from that era, be it music, costumes, dialogue etc. It looks new because the subject of the film is relevant even today.
Film is set in 1995 in Haridwar, still the audiences from metropolitan cities will relate to it. Dialogues in the film have a typical accent which is the speciality of the film as they are humorous and create impact. Every character in the film may seem outdated in the contemporary world but they will make you feel homely in their own world which hardly exists. This style of Sharat Katariya of making the audience like the old things all over again makes Dum Laga Ke Haisha a delightful watch.
Ayushmann Khurrana undoubtedly has given his best performance till date and Bhumi Pednekar is not less than any other talented established actor in the industry. She is the reason that makes the film more enjoyable. Rest of the supporting cast shine in their respective parts especially Seema Phawa amd Sanjay Mishra. Casting of Dum Laga Ke Haisha deserves a double thumbs up. Anu Malik’s music is pitch perfect and no other composer could have done justice to this film. Editing is superb making every single scene a very important part of the film. Film does not have a single dull moment.
Dum Laga Ke Haisha cannot be missed because it’s something never seen in Hindi films. Great performances, brilliant direction, amazing humour, outstanding execution of simple concept and the message of the film makes it a must watch fare. The climax song just ends the film perfectly making you feel nostalgic, just that you can’t enjoy it in a single screen theatre of 90’s.
