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.
