Storyline

It is the 1990s, the tape-cassette is dying, CDs will soon be the rage and a regular arranged marriage will turn out to be a perfect mismatch. Prem (Ayushmann Khurrana) is a shy music buff who runs a tape recording shop in Haridwar. Sandhya (Bhumi Pednekar) likes to dance to the band tunes at her own wedding. He has nightmares about drawing a blank at his English exam. She is about to carve a niche for herself as a teacher. But now, they are married and they are supposed to spend a lifetime together - and he is still trying to find balance on their scooter ride together. From overcoming his fear of the English language to dealing with an overbearing father, he discovers that his oversized wife, who he thought was a spanner in his spool, will actually lead him to something quite cool.

Goofs

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 »

Heartwarming and believable
2 March 2015 | by sendmailtojkSee all my reviews

It is never easy to make a movie about a topic like this. Past attempts have mutilated this kind of story so I was skeptical.One is happy to see that the characters (especially the leads) don't take unhealthy and impractical steps. Also there was no (unnecessary) villain waiting to take advantage of either of them.

Bhumi acted so believably and Ayushmann complemented her acting. These kind of movies hopefully should be eye openers to ignorant parent in Tier-2/Tier-3 cities and towns and not force their children into arranged marriages. It was just a luck break that the contest (in the end) resolved the marital issues; everybody does not get the same opportunities.

Hats off to the cast and Director for pulling off a superb movie.
