Karamveer Singh (Ayushmann Khurrana) has a unique talent of speaking in a female’s voice, and has been playing Seeta in local Ram Leela since his childhood. He lives with his father (Annu Kapoor) and, despite being highly qualified, is jobless. Karam finds a shady friendship call center, impresses the owner with his feminine voice, and bags the job as Pooja. He then talks to lonely and questionable men. What happens when the façade is exposed, is the crux of the story.

Ayushmann Khurrana is yet again in superb form and his feminine voice is convincing. The movie also sees him reuniting with Annu Kapoor after Vicky Donor (2012), and their bonding as a father and son is delightful to watch. The seasoned actor effortlessly plays the role of a widower, and does his job without any fuss. The characters of Manjot Singh as Karam’s friend and sidekick, Vijay Raaz as a shayari-enthusiast cop and Abhishek Banerjee of Stree fame are also masterfully written, and evoke hilarious moments throughout the film. Though, some others are bizarre and don’t add anything to the film. Nushrat, who plays Ayushmann’s love interest Mahi, doesn’t have much to do. Her part is nothing more than an extended cameo. The director has not developed it as the female protagonist; though, she tries her best to stay relevant. Debutant director, Raaj, is simplistic and the beauty of the film lies in its witty and funny one-liners. The songs complement the film and take the story forward. Dream Girl is all about Ayushmann Khurrana and the actor doesn’t disappoint one bit. From his Haryanvi accent to feminine voice, he has taken his acting to the next level. The actor handles his role’s responsibility well and has become the poster boy for quirky films and taboo subjects. The movie still had a lot of room for improvement, and the second half seems repetitive with the call center sequences. In the garb of laughter, it does raise some uncomfortable questions and is a satirical commentary on the social and political situation of the country. Raaj has taken a quirky subject and done an honest job by trying to keep things simple.

Dream Girl has Ayushmann Khurrana written all over it. Watch it for entertainment but it is not a compact or a perfectly- executed film.
