Dream Girl, which stars Ayushmann Khurrana in the lead role, is a laugh riot. The film also stars Annu Kapoor, Nushrat Bahrucha and Manjot Singh. It is directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa.In this, an educated but jobless Karamvir Singh (Ayushmann Khurrana) gets pulled into a friendship call centre that is run by women knitting sweaters or sifting through dhaniya in office for Rs 70,000. Equipped with the innate talent of impersonating a woman’s voice, Karamvir often finds himself dressing up as Radha or Sita in local plays. And this very gift lands him a job as Pooja in a call centre for chats.
Blessed with the gift of gab and a melodious voice, Karamvir aka Pooja soon finds a queue of men vying for his attention and love. From a poetry-obsessed police officer Rajpal (Vijay Raaz) to a lovelorn and brahmachari Mahinder (Abhishek Banerjee), his clients are besotted by the charm of Pooja and her voice. But the situation gets tricky when all his clients fall head over heels in love with Pooja.
Raaj Shaandilyaa’s Dream Girl is an out-and-out comedy with huge dollops of witty one-liners and jokes. But it is this very humour that plays the biggest hindrance in the development of the story. Despite an interesting premise, Dream Girl fails to go beyond the basic idea. The 137-minute film seems like a long comic skit sans a storyline.
