Dilwale is a romantic action comedy film directed by Rohit Shetty. The film stars Shahrukh Khan, Kajol, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon in the lead roles. It has been produced by Red Chillies Entertainment. Dilwale is releasing on 18 December 2015.
The names of SRK, Kjaol, Rohit Shetty and Varun are enough to raise our expectations. Plus the promos and music has been received well. Lets check out Dilwale review to find out if it lives up to the expectations.
Dilwale tells the story of Raj (Shahrukh Khan) and Meera (Kajol) who reunites after 15 years. The film starts in a flashback where both Raj and Meera are young and falls in live. But they both belong to two competitive gangster families. Their fathers Vinod Khanna and Kabir Bedi shared an intense rivalry. The fight between these tow gansters invloves many car chases and gun battles.
The second part starts with brother Veer (Varun Dhawan) who is Raj's little brother. he does not jnow about his family's past. Veer falls in love with Ishita (Kriti Sanon) who is a next door girl. Veer confesses his love for Ishita in front of Raj and ask for his help. In doing so Raj finds the shocking truth from which he has been hiding for a long time. What follows next is dramatic, visually grand and tests of love and family.
Once again this Rohit Shetty film depends strongly on ridiculous humor. There is no new script in place yet the film is engaging for most of its parts.
Rohit Shetty is known as the master of action-comedy. But here he has tried out to balance comedy, action, romance and drama. There are too much twists and turns in the film. The screenplay is slow-paced, especially in the first half. The earlier part of the film is devoted to establishing the characters.
The film’s melodrama wears you out in the second half mostly because of its sketchy editing. And here you realize that Rohit should stick to only action and comedy. Expect no extraordinary mojo as the film is in keeping with previous films of Shetty that defies logic and reason.
But the film works mainly because of its mindless jokes, funny situations and SRK-Kajol's chemistry. Varun Dhawan's quickness is an icing on the cake. The comic scenes of Varun Sharma and Jhonny Lever are also very entertaining. The climax is just too wonderful and will bring the house down with laughter.
The dialogue by Sajid Farhad are clap worthy. The music is major highlight of the film. All the songs have been captured beautifully. The special mentions will be Gerua and Daayre. The cinematography is excellent as it has some stunning visuals of Iceland and Bulgaria.
♦ Shahrukh Khan is called King Khan for a reason. He essays the role of Raj to full gusto. SRK is pitch perfect as lover boy Raj but we loved his bad ass avatar more.
♦ Kajol is back with a bang. She looks ridiculously stunning and acts equally well too. Her chemistry with SRK is still the same as it was 20 years earlier.
♦ Varun Dhawan's comic act is very entertaining. He seems very happy playing this lighter role. The actor has proved that he is here to stay for a long time.
♦ Kriti Sanon looks beautiful and acts decent. Both Varun and Kriti makes a quirky pair.
On the whole Dilwale is a mindless entertainer with loads of comedy, action and undying romance between SRK and Kajol. Watch it if your are not expecting Inception.
Honestly speaking, the film deserves 3 stars but we are giving half star extra for the comeback of the iconic couple SRK and Kajol on screen.
