Ayushmann lauded for comic timings
Ayushmann praised Ayushmaan's cross-dressing as 'Pooja' and voice modulation that has garnered accolades. The slapstick comedy will make you laugh your heart out, and needless to say, Ayushmann is the scene stealer.
His crisp comic timing dialogues amid chaotic moments comic timings along with the camaraderie with the ensemble cast grips the audiences.

#DreamGirl2 has no story, and only bad jokes. Holds no quality to its first part. Everything feels pretentious and repetitive in the film.— Vishal (@vishalandcinema) August 25, 2023

The fourth one mentioned, "I don't think that #DreamGirl2 is going to make any impact. Same old jokes, same old script, same old gyaan."

Ayushmann Khurrana's film Dream Girl 2 is funny in parts but not up to the mark. The movie has elements where people will laugh but do not match the expectations."
