      Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express The triumph of the film is Sandhya, beautifully played by Bhumi Pednekar. Rated: 3.5/5 May 11, 2015 Full Review Namrata Joshi Outlook Life, for most of us, is a sum total of such minutiae. So is DLKH. Rated: 3/4 May 11, 2015 Full Review Film Companion Staff Film Companion Sharat Katariya's delightfully sensitive romantic drama... Oct 27, 2020 Full Review Poulomi Das Qrius What made the film revolutionary wasn't just that it starred an overweight actor essaying its overweight heroine . It was the fact that for the first time, a young heroine completely refused to treat it as an inadequacy. Jul 17, 2019 Full Review Manjusha Radhakrishnan Gulf News (UAE) The pace is languid, but doesn't get tiring. Take the plunge and watch this romantic comedy. Rated: 3.5/5 Sep 13, 2018 Full Review Shilpa Jamkhandikar Reuters This might not be your everyday Bollywood romance, but it is one that should be celebrated, because it is a love story that is rooted in reality.

      Audience Member Love does not have perfect pairs. Making love makes a perfect one.💕💕 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review rajesh n So awkward, but the reality of the arranged marriages. And in the end a sweet and well acted story. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Dum Laga Ke Haisha: Prem is a 24-year-old high school dropout terrified of learning English who now works at an antiquated cassette tape music recording shop. When his family arranges for him to marry a large girl, his disappointing life seems to be going even worse. But this smart, confident girl turns out to be a big surprise, teaching Prem a thing or two about life. While the story doesn't break any new ground in the realm of relationships and inner beauty, it is cute, pretty realistic and has a crowd pleasing ending that will have you smiling as you stick around for the credits. B+ Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member A totally underrated love story. Beautifully set, heart warming and has that all important chemistry. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie stands out foremost because of the character of Sandhya - marvellously played by Bhumi Pednekar. Contemporary Bollywood doesn't reflect Indian women at all. It essentially reflects American led pop-idea of a woman- skinny with prominent chin and cheek-bones. I hope more Sandhya-like characters will be included in future Hindi movies. If Hollywood can give ample opportunities to plus sized actresses like Melissa McCarthy, Rebel Wilson, Gabourey Sidibe, Phyllis Smith etc., Bollywood can surely follow. There is one lacuna in the film though. The dialect of Hindi spoken by the actors is not matching with the geographical location of the plot. This dialect is prevalent in southern and central Uttar Pradesh. "Kachhu nahi hot hai" is a dialect found once you go cross Mathura going south. A chaste dialect of Hindi is prevalent in Haridwar where the story is set. Overall the movie is far better than the 'multi-million-star-studded-blockbusters' which Bollywood is so fond of. Thankfully there are no item songs, no fight scenes and no muscle-mongering. A piece heart-warming cinema steeped in Indian ethos. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member The first bollywood movie I enjoyed from start to finish. Extremely funny and great acting. Loved it.
