The premise itself had sold me and the movie delivered for the most part. The movie is sure to make you laugh while also pulling at your heartstrings sequences. Side note,
I wonder if the casting of Yami Gautam as a fairness cream endorser was a deliberate choice or an ironic coincidence.
Bareilly ki Barfi
Although this list is about Ayushmann Khurrana, the highlight of the film has to be Rajkummar Rao. His innocent but swaggy demeanor is as endearing as it is comical.
Shubh Mangal Savdhan
The film is an official remake of a Tamil film ‘Kalyana Samayal Saadham’. It follows the story of a soon to be married couple dealing with the groom’s “men’s problem”.
This movie has all the elements in place- a tight script, witty lines and relatable family drama. Special shout out to Surekha Sikri.
Dum Laga Ke Haisha
This is an easy, refreshing watch and makes you feel weirdly nostalgic about a small town life (even if you haven’t lived in one). This movie also gave us Moh Moh ke Dhaage which just makes it all the more endearing.
This film marked his debut. It raised eyebrows with its unconventional subject matter. Eight years later this is what we’ve come to expect of Khurrana and no one bats an eye at his choices.
This is one of his more “serious” films. Ayushmann plays a newly appointed police officer who has to solve the case of two murders and a missing girl. The cops in his command though seem to have a different agenda.
This one is undoubtedly his best film and performance so far. It’s only fitting that he won his first National Award for it. Shout out to Tabu for being an absolute queen. If you haven’t watched it yet drop everything and check it out on Netflix.
