‘Hum Do Hamare Do’ is a new take on how families are made and the plot seems to be uncommon which can be interpreted differently by people. This Abhishek Jain directorial is a movie about Dhruv (Rajkumar Rao), a self-made entrepreneur in the area of Virtual Reality. He is an orphan with two friends who support him through thick and thin.
Aanya (Kriti Sanon) is a blogger and covers various programs. She is also an orphan who was adopted by her uncle and aunt at the age of seven after her parents died in an accident. She is a bubbly girl who has been played by Kriti Sanon well.
The first encounter between Dhruv and Aanya is not very great. In her first encounter with Dhruv, she finds him to be very rude and annoying. The love story between the couple finally happens and grows with time but the audience might fail to find a connection with it. Filled with songs and amazing dances, this couple tries to make its place in the movie but the attempt was not very successful.
The most epic performances in this movie were given by the evergreen characters, Purshottam Mishra (Paresh Rawal) and Dipti Kashyap (Ratna Pathak Shah). College lovers in the past who failed to be together, fate has an opportunity for them to get back together once again in a disguised form. In the first few seconds of the movie, a hesitant and scared Purshottam was visible and funny to watch. Ratna Pathak Shah has given the best performance in this movie as Dipti. Her tip to Bal Premi (Dhruv’s first name) and her motherly affection towards him was heartwarming. This old couple and their love story should have been given some more spotlight as it felt real and interesting to watch.
‘Hum Do Hamare Do’ is a fun watch over the weekend. It covers important concepts like the importance of family. The desire to have a family or be a part of a family is a strong message delivered by this movie. Along with a young love story between Dhruv and Aanya, it also shows us a beautiful love story between Purshottam and Dipti. The latter love story depicts how some people are meant to be together regardless of the time and age.
People like to introduce themselves as a member of a family which adds on to their confidence. The lack of a family portrays a person in a negative light and thus, in a dire attempt, people go out looking for a fake family as shown in this movie. Although this intention was not clearly delivered by the movie, it holds a strong concept and a stronger cast.
Lastly, blood does not make a family, and family does not generate love. It’s the opposite, love makes a family which can sometimes be stronger than blood!
