Abhishek Jain’s Hum Do Humare Do puts a comedic spin on how far one can go for love. The trailer seems to promise witty quips and funny moments by an ensemble of seasoned actors such as Ratna Pathak Shah, Paresh Rawal, Rajkumar Rao and Kriti Sanon among others.
The line ‘Hum Do Humare Do’ reminds one of the family planning mantra that we have had in India where a young couple procreates two kids – a girl and a boy. In under 3 minutes of the trailer, we understand that Rajkumar Rao is in love with Kriti Sanon, who wants to get married into a happy and complete family. To ensure that he goes to an agency that helps you hire a fake relative. In dire need of parents to “complete” his family, he stumbles across Paresh Rawal and Ratna Pathak Shah who turns out to be Rawal’s character’s first love.
The trailer is a rollercoaster ride that takes us through the pros and cons of starting a marriage based on a lie. Under the banner of Maddock Films, Dinesh Vijan brings us a funny family movie with seemingly immense potential.
One of the standout scenes from the trailer is when Rajkumar Rao and Ratna Pathak Shah, along with Aparshakti Khurana, plot to remove the dad from the story by saying that the drunkard fell into the cliff. Ratna Pathak Shah says that she can act like a widow really well much to Paresh Rawal’s chagrin!
The trailer gives a glimpse into how far a web of lies can get and how complicated it can be.
‘Hum Do Humare Do’ is set to release this Diwali on 29 October on Disney+ Hotstar.
