Dilwale fails to steal the audiences' ‘DIL’

Dilwale fails to steal the audiences' ‘DIL’

 

Plot

'Dilwale' is a musical romantic film, which is also high on the action and comedy measure. Yunus Sajawal has written the script for the movie, while Sajid-Farhad have penned dialogues. Dilwale revolves around the story of the children of two competing families, who meet again after a 15-year separation. How this couple tries to overcome the brutal conflict between their respective families forms the crux of the movie. The movie has a very predictable script, but some masala elements keep the viewers engaged.

Acting

The gleaming chemistry between Shahrukh Khan and Kajol is the main highlight of the movie. Varun Dhawan is gradually emerging as the rising star of Bollywood as he radiates an amazing screen presence. Kajol is hardly offered any major role, she plays the character of a street-side artist who seems to have nothing better to do than buy high-contrast metallic nail paint. Shahrukh and Kajol’s chemistry is as palpitating and as fiery as always. Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon form the other pair in this film which recreates the oft-repeated story of khandaani dushmani.

Cinematography

Dudley's camera work does not do any major wonder! In fact, the camera lenses seem so oversaturated at times that it feels like an Aqua video. The locations are quite eye pleasing as the scenic beauties of Iceland and Bulgaria take over the eyes of the audiences. The film’s songs are hummable and have been picturised fine as well.

Direction

Rohit Shetty has co-produced the film with Gauri Khan under the banner Red Chillies Entertainment and Rohit Shetty Productions. The film has Amar Mohile and Pritam Chakraborty's music and is replete with laugh-a-minute dialogues and Rohit Shetty’s trademark action stunts. Nonetheless, even the car stunts, something which Rohit Shetty is quite popular for, are imitative, coming to us from Golden Eye and The Fast And Furious movies. Dilwale in its convoluted, shoddy fashion, tries to pay homage to Mukul Anand's Hum, a highly compelling action melodrama fails a big time. It is the lazy script and uneven pace which bogs the film down. But the film knows it is a crowd pleaser, best enjoyed with a tub of popcorn. A pleasure for SRK and Kajol fans but if you want something substantial, look elsewhere.

Conclusion

Rohit Shetty's direction, melodious music, amazing choreography of songs, gravity-defying action scenes, silly-slapstick comedy, beautiful locations are attractions of the film. The plot is not merely average but unpardonably flat. You can tell a lot about a filmmaker from the way they use a stolen scene. The movie is an ordinary amalgamation of How I Met Your Mother, Hum and Kasme Waade. Sure, there is a sparkle because of big Bollywood stars but Dilwale is an absolute fiasco. Nothing happens in the first hour or so of the film. As the plot unravels, involving rival gangster families and a bullet-ridden past the film goes dimly through the motions, not even bothering to tickle laughs out of us.

  • Oscars, or the Academy Awards 2017 have just ended, and it was one hell of an event. After the Oscars award night, we thought of taking a satirical take on the academy awards by presenting the BAS KAR awards to the worst performances or appearances in Hindi cinema. The winners have been selected keeping in mind the ‘Tumse Naa Ho Payega’ tag line. LOL! Take a look at the winners…
  • Bollywood is known for its thoughtful stories and plots. Over the years, we have seen many women-centric roles, which have impacted our society in a large way.

  • When we recall the hottest buzzword of the century “Feminism”, many people confuse it with “Male Bashing” which is absolutely rubbish. It is more to do with a genuine status quo and not looking low at the men. By default, India is a misogynist country and most of the men here do not respect the womanhood because yes, the country has a patriarchal set up which really needs to be set right. Hence, the influential women have to come-up and voice for all the women out there to drill some sense into the Indian system. Right from Neena Gupta to Kalki Koechlin and Priyanka Chopra, every Bollywood actress has opined for the female emancipation which has to be heard by all.

Of course, many actors have worked together in n-number of films and after seeing them on and off the screen, we predicted some love affairs which should happen for real.
