Since time immemorial, we have witnessed Bollywood's obsession with the Punjabi culture. The industry's deep-rooted Punjab connection could be yet again seen in director Ashima Chibber's latest release Mere Dad Ki Maruti, that features Ram Kapoor, Saqib Saleem and Rhea Chakraborty in the leads. Mere Dad Ki Maruti (MDKM) is an outrageous comedy set against the backdrop of a loud Punjabi wedding in Chandigarh.

Story
Now, before we proceed, let's brief you about a few hilarious characters in the movie. Ram Kapoor aka Tej Khullar plays a loud Punjabi father, who share a volatile relationship with his son Sameer (Saqib Saleem). Not to believe, the duo's relationship is so miserable that Tej has gone up to the extent to believe that Sameer was exchanged in the hospital during childbirth. Then enters the college hottie Jazzleen (Rhea Chakraborty), who is self-obsessed and considers herself as the 'Shakira' of Chandigarh.

The movie opens with a wedding ceremony in the Khullar family, where the daughter of the family was to receive a brand new Maruti car as a dowry. But things take u-turn after the good-for-nothing Sameer sneaks the new car (Maruti) to impress Jazzleen and later he loses it. Fearing his father's rage, Sameer plans out to replace the stolen Maruti with the help of his best friend.

Mere Dad Ki Maruti is an out-an-out comedy, especially the hilarious dialogues are sure to tickle the audiences' funny bones. One such dialogue is when Sameer goes upto Jazzleen to propose her. His terrible English "Are you love me?" (instead of "Do you love me?") and then Sameer's friend scolding him for wrong English, "Itni tatti English mein I love you bolega, toh aisa hi hoga"..., one certainly can't stop giggling after hearing such serious 'tatti' English.

Performances
Ram Kapoor as an outrageous father does a convincing job. He perfectly matches up to the role a loud, Punjabi dad, who miserably hates his own son and curses the poor soul, every now and then. Saqib Saleem certainly does an impressive job, but somewhere lacks the screen presence. Rhea Chakraborty is a complete show off in the movie, and unfortunately doesn't get much opportunity to prove herself as an actress.

What you can expect from Mere Dad Ki Maruti?
The aam janta can expect full-too entertainment and sufficient tummy laughs out of this loud masala movie. Especially, certain madcap dialogues might leave you whistling, giggling and applauding in the theatres.

Verdict
On the whole, Mere Dad Ki Maruti won't disappoint you. The film takes the audience on a roller coaster ride that will leave them roar with laughter.
