What captivated us about Dilwale and what went amiss
One of the highly anticipated movies of 2015, Dilwale is the brainchild of the deadly combination of Rohit Shetty and Shah Rukh Khan.
If you have seen the trailer, you know you are in for a ride! Packed with sentiments and actions, Dilwale movie seems to look like a crowd pleaser. Of family bond, love, passion and vengeance, this entertaining motion picture will be visually pleasing. Well, the plot unravels – rival gangster families, broken hearts, orchestrated car chases and some over-the-top situations. For fans of Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, Christmas is here early! Dilwale is an action-packed movie, with a dash of comic relief and romance, produced by Red Chillies Entertainment.
The film is set primarily in Goa, where Raj is a respectable car modifier and has had a violent past. Veer on the other hand is a sleepyhead who ends up losing expensive parts of the vehicle in his charge. A long flashback reveals that it is in Bulgaria that Raj runs into sketch artist Meera, goes on a five-minute date with her and packs a lifetime of romance into those 300 seconds, and then there is a violent fallout.
Dilwale sails along just fine as long as SRK and Kajol are on the screen. The Songs in the movie have been picturised well and quite hummable. The film knows it is a crowd pleaser, best enjoyed with a tub of popcorn. A pleasure for SRK and Kajol fans, but look elsewhere if you’re looking for something substantial. The film is replete with laugh-a-minute dialogues and Shetty’s trademark stunts. The lead pair is all heart. Varun Dhawan is casted as Raj’s younger brother. A young man who is in love with Ishita, played by Kriti Sanon. One thing that really blows your mind away is the gravity-defying action scenes. It also provides the audience with a little bit of comic relief.
While everyone knows who the main stars are, you’ll be glad to know that the entire cast will leave you enthralled. Varun Sharma plays Sidhu and Mr. Funny man, Boman Irani is King. Also included in the line-up are Vinod Khanna, Kabir Bedi, Chetna Pande and Johnny Lever.
As predicted by movie pundits, Dilwale is an entertainer. It’s a something you would want to watch with your friends over the weekend. Easy on the eyes, Dilwale is watchable.
