The film’s fascinating reason was obvious from the trailer and fortunately, the director had the fortitude to develop that to convey an endearing yet very predictable story in general. At times, it will feel too bland but still offers enough to sit through the end.
Rajkumar Rao stars as an independent tech big shot who conquered all chances as a vagrant to become successful. He goes all out for Kriti Sanon’s character who is apparently fixated on family and connections. How he attempts to prevail upon her and her family with a fake family shapes the remainder of the story. Enter Paresh Rawal and Ratna Pathak Shah, the two best things about the film. The two veterans take over as the fundamental heroes and have us snared with their chitchat to and fro and the manner in which they attempt to clutch the fake roles as it comes disentangled.
Underneath the amusing plays and arrangements, the film’s central message is that families come in all shapes and structures ought to be valued. The story is very much predictable. We know the ending so it is not very interesting or thrilling but the performances are. Initially, you will feel bored but as the movie progresses it becomes interesting.
Overall, Hum Do Humare Do is an equation-based presentation and somewhat subsidiary message yet saved by Paresh Rawal and Ratna Pathak Shah’s ridiculously pleasant performances. Do watch this drama if you believe in family, relations, emotions, etc. Else, there are many better alternatives.
