Movie Review: Prem Ratan Dhan Payo

I have never been a fan of Sooraj Barjatya’s family sagas but him coming together with Salman Khan after a hiatus surely had my expectations soaring, also because the phenomenal superstar is at the helm of affairs for quite some time now. Salman sparkles reprising Prem and his fans will admire him in a double role. Sonam gets her biggest film till date and is quite okay. I also liked a few songs; music made these days rarely sound good to my ears. But ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ bored me and got me IndiaTveccde6_prem_ratan_dhan_payorestless several times. Barjatya surely knows the pulse of his audience, ones who like to get moist-eyed while watching a brother trying hard to pacify an angry step-sister or reaching out to a jealous conspirator step-brother falling down from a badly constructed Sheesh Mahal. The middle-aged Uncle sitting next to me was sobbing probably reminiscing good old times with his siblings when he was younger or so I thought.

A Diwali and Bhai Dooj release for a movie like this will definitely pull the crowd. Huge Blockbuster. And why not? There are worse Salman Khan movies that have done well at the BO.

A typical Sooraj Barjatya movie where he reiterates the importance of family values. Poorly directed.

Every big film meets with mixed reviews. But these are the ones you wait for. Watch it if you have to. I have a nice new title for it- 'Gam Ratan Yawn Payo!'

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!
