PROS –
1) One time watch small-town comedy.

 
CONS –
1) New age Bollywood is clearly scraping the bottom of the barrel for small-town stories.

3) The movie ruined the original Laung Laachi song thanks to Tulsi Kumar.

Dum Laga Ke Haisha (2015)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 1
CULT – 1

 

VERDICT – 5/5

 

PROS –
1) Part of the “New Wave” of movies in Indian Cinema where small-town directors are fearlessly canvasing small-town stories instead of copying Hollywood blockbusters. It’s good to see YRF joining the band-wagon.
2) Fast-paced screenplay
3) Soundtrack including Moh Moh Ke Dhaage and The 90s song.

 

CONS –
1) Nothing left to watch if you’ve seen the trailer.
