Reviews received by Dream Girl 2
The Hindustan Times review of the film read, “One thing that remains a delight throughout is Ayushmann — whether as Karam or Pooja — he’s too good to be true. In his portions as Pooja, and thankfully there’s a lot of them, he is just stunning. From his body language, makeup to dance moves and his ability to talk in a feminine voice, he just leaves you charmed. I’m glad he never makes crossdressing vulgar barring a few scenes that were written in a shoddy manner, yet performed decently.”
