Hum Do Hamare Do (Available on Disney+ Hotstar)
Hum Do Hamare Do is a Bollywood is a direction by Dinesh Vijan. Vijan explains the story of his film as the extent of love between two individuals, Dhruv and Aanya. To simplify, Dhruv hires two adultery actors to act as his parents to convince his fiancee, Ananya. It is further revealed that one of the actors, Purushottam Mishra has a romantic crush on the other actress, Dipti Kashyap. Therefore, the theme of the extent of love is shown in dual levels. Another important element of this film is its rich cast with Kriti Sanon, Rajkumar Rao, Ratna Pathak Shah, and Paresh Rawal in lead roles. This is an obvious comedy film. However, the melodramatic genre is equally evident in this production. I recommend this movie for viewers who don’t want to excessively focus on any film as such and who like light comedy with some melodrama scenes.
