Dilwale: A Review

Make no mistake. ‘Dilwale’ is a typical Rohit Shetty film. So.. there are cars, guns, action, slapstick comedy and Goa. In the midst of it all is a love story with a twist and there is the magical chemistry of SRK-Kajol. The Director makes the most of the pair especially in the flashback, shot well in Bulgaria. But then it drags in the second half and you just wait to catch a glimpse of the lovely onscreen couple together; there isn’t too much of them. With the most number of blockbusters to his credit, Rohit Shetty knows what his audiences want. But he is too mediocre a director to make romance look good. It’s only and only because of the easy chemistry between SRK and Kajol that the love (and hate) story works here. The two look great together and you would want to watch ‘Dilwale’ for them alone. Varun Dhawan is a bundle of energy; his proposal scene will be loved by all SRK fans. I clapped. Kriti Sanon acts confidently and holds her own.

‘Dilwale’ has blockbuster written all over it. How I wish it was directed by someone more competent.

About Abhirup Dhar

I don't watch movies... I live them! Let me introduce myself. Abhirup Dhar was born in Kolkata and is still being brought up in India. A banker by profession, he is filmy to the core and is passionate about reviewing movies and writing. He likes to live on his own… he likes to be blunt, sarcastic, famous, infamous, confident, over-confident, moody at times… he likes to be himself. He is imperfect because perfection is boring. His love for movies dates back to his childhood days when he studied in a boarding school. A three-month Winter Vacation every year… and he made sure he watched as many movies then. Parents thought it was a phase... he knew it was Passion and he knew it back then itself. The craziness to watch movies on the Big Screen began during the last two years of school when he literally bunked to town so that he could catch up with the new Hindi Movie releases. Some thought he was plain crazy. He confirmed it was Passion... yet again. The hard fact is that not always can you walk a path you are passionate about. You have expectations to fulfill and Life to be made. But Life gives you chances and you have to grab them. So... here is he... your friendly critic who will be giving you his Verdict every week so that you can decide which release is worth your moolah and which is not! See you at the Movies!
