We Give Us Two Review {2.5/5} More Review Rating

Hum Do Hamari Do is the story of a man who gets fake parents to impress his sweet girl. Dhruv Shikhar (Rajkumar Rao) is an orphan who worked as a child in a dhaba run by Purushottam Mishra (Paresh Rawal). One day, he runs away and works hard. He then emerged as a successful entrepreneur and creator of a VR app called Magician. At the launch event of his app, he meets Anya Mehra (Kriti Sanon), a vlogger. He falls for her and she also starts liking him. However, she wants to marry a man who has a loving family. He also has a reason for doing so. Her parents died when she was a child. His uncle Dr. Sanjeev Mehra (Manu Rishi Chadha) and wife Roopa Mehra (Prachi Shah Pandya) raised him as their own child. Dhruv fears that if he tells her the truth that she has no one in this world, she might leave him. So he lies that he lives with his parents. Anya agrees to marry him. He then along with his best friend Shunti (Aparshakti Khurana) decides to find a man and woman who can pretend to be his parents. Shanty takes him to Shadiram (Saanand Verma). He is an expert wedding planner and can also help in getting fake guests. He lines up hundreds of men and women for Dhruva’s needs. Sadly, none of them fit the bill. At this point, Dhruv misses Purushottam who is now retired and settled in Shimla. He also learns that he is in love with Deepti Kashyap (Ratna Pathak Shah), who also lives in Shimla. Purushottam knows that she is living in the same city but is afraid to approach her. When Dhruv learns that Deepti is Purushottam’s old flame, he convinces her to be his mother. She agrees and once she is on board, Purushottam also follows her and agrees to be his father. Anya’s family and Dhruv’s ‘family’ meet again at a restaurant. Everything is going well until Purushottam drinks too much. He becomes so emotional that he asks for Deepti’s hand in marriage. An astonishing glow goes away. Someone shot a video of the proposal in the restaurant and it went viral. This embarrasses Dr. Mehra and now he has second thoughts on whether he should allow Anya to marry into such a family. What happens next forms the rest of the film.

Movie Review Hum Do Hamare Do

The story of Deepak Venkatesan and Abhishek Jain is extremely gripping and has the potential to be a fun and emotional saga. Prashant Jha’s screenplay fails to do justice to such a huge plot. Some funny and emotional scenes stand out but overall, some developments are difficult to digest. Prashant Jha’s dialogues are good at places but overall could have been better. In the recent past, there are some similar scenes in this space like congratulations. [2018], Bala [2019], mm [2021] Aadi has set a benchmark and the film fails to surpass them in terms of one-liners.

Abhishek Jain’s direction is good, although he had better control over writing in his previous regional films. He handles the romantic track well and also in the second part when Dhruv bonds with his fake parents. Also, the interval point increases laughter. But the film is unconvincing, for which the editing is also to blame. It had the potential to add even more humor but Abhishek misses the chance. Dhruv’s bursting in the climax is unrelated. The climax is in a hurry and one is left wondering how a steadfast Dr. Sanjeev Mehra had a change of heart.

Hum Two Our starts with two very sweet notes. Dhruv and Anya’s first meeting is a bit awkward but works out. Dhruv and Anya’s romance scenes are decent and form the basis for the film. After a point, one gets restless as he has already seen the trailer and how the story is going to proceed. The film turns interesting once again when Purushottam and Deepti agree to become Dhruv’s parents. The scene of the meeting of both the families is funny. Post-interval, Anya’s scenes of Dhruv staying with the ‘family’ make for a good watch. The scene where Deepti talks to Dhruv about her strained relationship with her son is very touching. Hopefully the film will be even better from here. However, both the pre-climax and the climax fail to make the desired impact.

Rajkummar Rao does well but Paresh Rawal and Ratna Pathak get overwhelmed by Shah’s heavy presence. Kriti Sanon is apt for the role and gives a decent performance. However, his screen time is limited in the first half. Also, love affects the story as a whole as there are many more things happening in the film. Paresh Rawal is quite entertaining and adds to the impact. Ratna Pathak Shah is graceful and that’s one reason the film works to some extent. Majal Vyas (Kanika’s sister Anya) makes an impression and is good in the scene where she questions Manu Rishi Chaddha in the pre-climax. Aparshakti Khurana is fine and his character gets the raw deal. Manu Rishi Chaddha is dependable while Prachi Shah Pandya is endearing. Sanand Verma is a bit over-the-top but it works. Sarthak Sharma (Chhota Dhruv) is lovable, while Khabir Mehta (Chintu) plays the role of the mischievous kid well. Avijit Dutt (Dhruv’s boss) is devastated and the same goes for Shibani Bedi (Shanty’s wife). Aditya Taranch (hint) Okay.

Sachin-Jigar’s music doesn’t have the ability to last long. ‘Bansuri’, Played in the end credits and felt chartbuster. ‘Kamli’ And ‘Vedha Sajjay’ Good job in the film. ‘Roula found’‘ is played for barely a minute. ‘Dum Gutkoon’ Makes a good sad song. Sachin-Jigar’s background score is much better.

Amalendu Choudhary’s cinematography is apt. Dayanidhi Patturajan and Amrish Patange’s production design is neat. Prince’s renovated home is particularly charming yet realistic. The costumes of Anisha Jain, Sukriti Grover and Jia-Mallika are rich. Dev Rao Jadhav’s editing is unconvincing.

Overall, Hum Do is based on excellent plot and excellent acting by our two lead actors, especially Paresh Rawal and Ratna Pathak Shah. But the average script and weak climax reduces the impact to some extent.
