    I've never been a Sonam Kapoor fan, but Dolly ki Doli totally made me fall for her. Based on the true looteri dulhan incidents of North India, this ridiculously logic-less but very humorous comedy is very down-to-earth and desi. Starring Muhammad Zeeshan Ayyub, Varun Sharma, Pulkit Samrat and an effectively performing Rajkummar Rao, this spare-no-one drama relies on its sharp writing. The second half, although flawed, shakes you- the irony of separation in love is defined in just a song. At only 96 minutes, this mainstream, too Bollywood film packs in more than too much, but it still deserves an applause on its comment- being a con bride is always better than being a sex worker. And above everything, it's the triumph of Sonam Kapoor, who shows the vulnerable and the bold sides of Dolly. This is indeed one of the best Hindi films this year. I'm going with 3.5 out of 5 for Dolly ki Doli. Its never long, never is it labored, and it is always quirky, witty fun.
