Within just hours after movie's first screening, PRDP being declared a blockbuster superhit

As expected, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo has given the audiences some beautiful memories to cherish for life. However, such emotions will only be encountered by Salman Khan's fan base. In the eyes of ardent Bhaijaan devotees, PRDP will be a completely delightful watch. But to viewers, who consider storyline as necessary as a good starcast, former department will only bring disappointment and confusion. Ten minutes into the movie and you will realise why it shouldn't have been more than half an hour long. 

 

Within just hours after movie's first screening, PRDP being declared a blockbuster superhit

 

We all must've heard the phrase "Too many cooks spoil the broth". What we're never told is that "Too much of broth, at times, can give diarrhoea". Although PRDP has only one cook, the broth, aka, story & plot, is simply indigestible. As soon as there's a sequence where Salman is absent, the weak points of movie start sprouting. The likes of Sonam Kapoor, Armaan Kohli and Neil Nitin Mukesh have only one role in the film; providing dialogues and punchlines to Salman. PRDP miserably fails in the plot segment, and doesn't even seem to uplift the bar during its entire length.

Starting from its core, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is based on the popular lore of the Victorian age, "The Prince & the Pauper". Salman Khan, as a dashing prince charming and common man of wisdom, reveals his dual avatar in the film, called Prem and Vijay. Sonam Kapoor renders the role of queen Maithili, who is seen romancing the king. Both the characters of Bhaijaan hold the movie strongly till its entire duration. And this steady grip starts to slip away as soon as he vanishes; making the film as stable as a 3-legged chair.

Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is total fun only when you discard the fact that families portrayed in it don't really exist even in a parallel world. Salman Khan's performance, as usual, is mind-blowing and fabulous. The actor seems to have retained the exuberance and passion shown in his last movie Bajrangi Bhaijaan. The movie sets and cast's attires are royally majestic, inspiring a sense of suave and sophistication. Few of the action sequences can give an intense adrenaline-rush, courtesy famous Hollywood stuntsman Greg Powell. The music and lyrics are not that bad either. Apparently the only shortcomings existing in PRDP are the lack of direction, vague subject and ambiguous outcome. This movie clearly suffices to the credibility of idiom "All that glitters is not gold". But then, being a Salman Khan flick, PRDP is bound to break old milestones and lay down new records.

  • 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.
  • You fall in love and vow to spend the rest of your life with each other. Such is the beauty of a marriage. The end, however, is not always as beautiful. Blame it on fame, gorgeous looks or the fact that cupid's arrows strike again and again in the glamour world, but Bollywood couples have to face the ugly truth of infidelity, divorces, and break-ups ever so often.
  • In Bollywood, there was a time, when supporting actors did not receive the appreciation they do now. They were looked at as mere pawns to make the lead look good. But times have changed, and talented artists have taken these so called side roles, and evolved them into the backbone of the films. They are now taking the limelight, and sometimes even overshadow the leads.
