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.

  • Alia Bhatt is the sweetheart of Bollywood. The actress is friends with everyone in the industry, and the whole film industry loves her. It could be the perks of being the amazing person she seems to be. But, she has many people that do not belong to Bollywood, or her family, that are constantly looking out for her. They are all her best friends, she has attained over her lifetime.
  • Akshay Kumar has been one actor that, even in his 50s, does not look that old. The actor has maintained a physique that no actor of his age has been able to maintain. He is fit, and the whole country takes inspiration from him. But, one thing we forget about the actor is the various looks he has kept throughout his career. So we celebrate the different styles that we have seen the actor in.
  • 2017 might have been a bad year for Bollywood, considering the bad movies, and the scarce Box Office collections that the movies made. Also, the controversies surrounding the movies this year, did them more harm than good. But, there are still a few movies from 2017, that we would watch again someday.
  • We have all heard struggle stories of our favourite celebrities, some have been waiters, and some might have been junior artists. But, too many have been backup dancers. From a field that has potentially more than a million people in it, these stars shone so brightly, that they became the cream of Bollywood. These stars started their journey with dancing behind superstars and are now working with them.
  • Bollywood is filled with people, who excel at acting. But other than acting and the storyline, there is another thing that makes our films blockbusters. Dancing! Bollywood movies are filled with dancers. Some dance like they have two left feet, but some, dance like there is no tomorrow. These are the dancers, we are paying a tribute to today.
  • Madame Tussauds is a gem in the age of modern museums, and the capital has become the lucky holder of this gem. Delhiites have become a part of the lucky few, who can now visit these lifelike celebrity wax statues. But, our favourite part is the amazing resemblance, and in some cases the disparity, of these wax figurines.
