Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (2014)

A meandering bollywood movie, one where you’ve forgotten where you started by the time you finish.

Regan Humphrey

Kavya Sing (Alia Bhatt), a soon-to-be-married girl from a conservative family in the country, is not expecting to fall in love when she spends a few weeks in the city with her cousin. Despite this, she meets Rakesh “Humpty” Sharma (Varun Dhawan), who–determined to marry Kavya–agrees to a challenge posed by Kavya’s father, to find one reason why is he is more worthy of her hand than her betrothed.
