After the success of the thought-provoking Article 15, Ayusmann Khurrana is back again in the well-loved avatar of a middle class lad trying to establish a balance between his family and his own life. However, the film puts itself apart from his previous attempts in many aspects and turns out to be a laugh-riot. Go on reading our Dream Girl review to get a clue of those aspects.


The story of Dream Girl centers around Karam (Ayushmann) must pay off loans his father (Annu Kapoor) had taken and for that he hunting for a job. Meanwhile, he plays Seeta, Draupadi, etc as he has a natural talent to pretend to be a girl through his voice. Even he gets a job in call center owned by W (Rakesh Sharma) where he starts making calls to people and persuading them with a fake identity of ‘Pooja’ and gets. Besides, he has love interest as well named Mahi (Nushrat Barucha). Where does this fake identity of Karam lead him? What do those people whom Pooja calls do when they get to know that it was Karam who would talk to them in disguise? Answer to all these questions form the crux of the film.

Screenplay and Dialogues

Penned by the duo Nirmaan D. Singh and Raaj Shaandilyaa, undoubtedly the idea carries a sheer novelty and the concept has freshness. The screenplay has been drafted in way that it tickles you, pokes you in the belly, and turns out to be a rib-tickling ride through and through. Despite all, it’s first half is loosely written and even keeps on fluctuating.

Besides, the message Raaj has tried to convey at the end of the film is being contradicted by himself in the film. There is a instance where Karam states that a girl should not be judged by her profession. Despite this people are looking down Pooja considering her a prostitute.

Penned by Raaj Shaandilyaa, the Dialogues of the film aid the screenplay very well and help it establish a quick connection between the audience and the drama getting unfold on the screen. They are fresh, engaging, and hilarious.


Raaj Shaandilyaa, who is know as the writer of Comedy Circus and Kapil Sharma show, does a good job in terms of narrating the story; however, his story loses the soul at some instances where comedy should have got dimmed and key emotions must have come up. His narration also have some lose ends for instance the fast forward love story of Ayushamann and Nusharat establishes only in one song and they become soulmate all of a sudden.


Ayushmann Khurrana once again impresses with his prowess and disguised as Poojs very well. He himself voiced his the fake character, which he is playing and it sounds absolutely girlish as well as cute. Nushrat Barucha, although, struggles to find much space and seems to be lost among many other characters, but she has her moments. She looked beautiful as well.


Composed by Meet Bros, the Telephone song has really created a stir among the music lovers and it has really helped the film take a massive start at the box office. Radhe-Radhe track also made a blast during Janmashtami and Ganpati Utsav. The background score lifts the humor quotient of this comedy.

Why Should You Watch?

Go for this if you can stand the sluggish and slackly penned first half. If you can tolerate that you will witness a laugh-riot.
