Rakesh, a.k.a. Humpty Sharma(Varun Dhawan) is the only son of a small time bookshop owner in Delhi. Kavya Singh(Alia Bhatt) is the youngest daughter of Pratap Singh, an auto-mechanic turned scion of a transport company in Ambala. Kavya is due to get married to her father's chosen NRI doctor(a new actor Hunk) from the U.S. She lives in a joint family with her bebe, her parents, her brother, and her divorced sister.

Having a yearning for a designer lehenga for her own marriage(as her best friend Gurpreet from Delhi was going to get married in a designer lehenga worth Rs. 250000, Kavya takes leave of her protective, overbearing father(Asutosh Rana) and goes to Delhi to earn and buy a designer lehenga for herself. There, she meets Humpty and his two side-kicks Shontu and Poplu. It is love at first sight for Humpty, and he begins to search for reasons to meet Kavya over the succeeding days.

Their friendship grows, as they are like-minded: both are rebels, fun-loving, gregarious individuals. There are some side-stories here, and in one such story, Humpty uncovers some sordid facts about the husband-to-be of Kavya's friend Gurpreet, and does the latter a favour by exposing the truth about the to-be-husband. This increases Kavya's liking for him, but she is scared to make her father unhappy by disclosing her love for Humpty. She spends a passionate evening with Humpty but falls short of committing herself to Humpty and returns to Punjab to prepare for her marriage to the Hunk.

Humpty and his two cronies follow her to Ambala, where they contrive to meet her father on false pretexts, but the cat is out of the bag when Pratap Singh asks him to explain the true reason for his arrival from Delhi. Whereupon Humpty declares his love for Kavya. The Father is angry, and gets the trio beaten up and sent back to Delhi, but they return . and the father then throws a challenge on Humpty to find some fault in Hunk . and if he cannot find any, he should give up and return to Delhi and forget Kavya for ever.

This rather unbelievable challenge dampens the mood of the rest of the story, and it is downhill from there. Reminders of earlier romantic films from Dharma Productions are thrown in for good measure, esp. the train scene from DDLJ . and there are several emotional turns that the story takes before everything gets righted and they all live happily ever after.

The on-screen chemistry between Alia and Varun are the highlight of the movie. The Hunk is average, as is Rana, whom we have seen in earlier movies spewing fire and brimstone! The other actors are all average. Alia's bubbliness is getting stereotyped, as she has played similar ebullient characters in Highway and other films as well. Varun is believable both as the underdog as well as as the hero that fights goons for his beloved's safety in a road-side dhaba at night.

Direction and screenplay are above average, and some comic situations are really good. Dialogues are above par.

The movie should be seen by youth, who will like its songs, music and the romantic situations.
