Prem (Salman Khan) is a charming and funny guy who adores Princess Maithili (Sonam Kapoor) so much that he would do anything to meet her. On the other hand is Vijay, a rather strict, bound by rules prince who keeps fighting with his fiance Maithili due to ego clashes and of course, his siblings hate him, each for a different reason.

Coming to the performances of the actors! Anupam Kher, Deepak Dobriyal, and Salman Khan are the only actors who got into the skin of their characters and gave an entertaining performance. The rest of the actors just seemed to waste our time on the big screen.

If you are a true Salman Khan fan, you shall enjoy it, otherwise not so much! For people who have loved Rajshri films in the past may also like it! It ain't that bad, but it ain't that good either! One time watch only!

The movie is full of emotions, love, action, drama and animations. The post-interval part of Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is more entertaining and it’s full of suspense and love drama. The screenplay is able to bring out the real feelings of love.

The film throws you in a suspense right from the starting; Salmaan Khan is in double role. Every single scene of PRDP will catch our eyes. In every action seen there is a constant motion and different sound tracks. You cannot predict the story script and these two hours are full of Suspense and love, this is a small packet of entertainment, definitely you will feel these 2 hours a lot shorter than they actually are.

On the whole, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is another blockbuster movie of Salmaan Khan. According to the latest box office collection reports (Advanced booking) the total collection of the movie is 5-6 Cr. The movie emerges as one of the biggest hits of Sonam Kappor’s career. Blockbuster!

The film tells us about the story of a royal prince Vijay, who is born with money and power. He cannot take all the responsibilities of his kingdom and wants to lead a simple life. In the meantime his step brother Niranjan (Neil Netin Mukesh) plans to steal the throne from him. For their evil they use her sister (Sawara Bhaskar) whom Vijay loves the most.

Things got changed when the Vijay finds out the common man Prem (Salman Khan) who looks exactly like him and they change their identities with each other temporarily. How Salman met Sonam , how did they both fall in love, how the rest of the story went , well you have to watch it on the big screen.

Final Verdict : A must watch for Salman Khan fans

After a long time, Salman can be seen in the double role where his duplicate copy is a simple and a common man and the original was a king who loves his people and charitable in nature. Despite having everything with him, the king wants to lead a normal life and the contrary is, his elder brother also wants to steal out all the wealth from him. The names of Salman’s Cast are Prem and Vijay respectively.

The movie twists when it was about to reach the interval where King finds a duplicate person who exactly looks like him, King decided to fulfill his desire of living a normal life by exchanging the roles with him. This is one of the moment you would really laugh on. The behavior of the replacement person is really adorable in comparison to the king.

The movie is good in the beginning but goes a little faded during the middle of the movie, the end of the movie is up to expectation and very interesting. Despite every effort of Salman Khan, PRDP couldn’t prove itself to the best entertainer in all sense like Bajrangi Bhaijaan or Baahubaali.

Prem (Salman Khan) is the princess of a kingdom. He is living a costly life. But he doesn’t want the rich life. He is willing to live a common man and enjoy the life peacefully. He engaged with Maithili (Sonam Kapoor). Both are starts to love. One day he saw a man called Vijay (Salman Khan), who looks like him. Suddenly he got an idea and start to proceed that. That is both to be exchange their place. Now Princess turned as common man and vice versa. Then what happened is the remaining story.

What a colorful visuals. Director Sooraj Barjatya present this film in his own style. He explained the love between the family members in a different way. Salman Khan played well in both characters. He looks so charm. He express his feeling in a smooth way. It’s very new to us. Sonam Kapoor looks beautiful. The chemistry between Salman and Sonam is so good. Cinematography presents a stunning visuals. Background music and songs are nice. Only the starting of the film gives some bore feeling. Otherwise it’s worth to watch the movie in theater.

It's sacrilegious to envision any other actor enacting the part of Prem in a Sooraj R. Barjatya movie. When the reels unfold, you don't see Salman, you see Prem and that is one of the biggest strengths of the film. This time around, Salman is cast in a dual role -- while he takes to Prem, the simpleton, like a fish takes to water, he's equally competent as Vijay, the prince. What's interesting is, the two characters are as diverse as chalk and cheese, but it is Prem that's winsome and endearing and Salman makes sure he interprets it brilliantly. This is a Salman show from Scene A to Z. Sonam Kapoor is earnest. She looks stunning, but more importantly, she carries her part effortlessly. Initially, her pairing opposite Salman did raise eyebrows, but when you watch the goings-on, you realise that Salman and Sonam do make a lovely on-screen couple.

Like Sooraj's earlier films, PREM RATAN DHAN PAYO is embellished with too many songs, but the soundtrack [Himesh Reshammiya] this time ranges from excellent [title track] to hummable ['Jalte Diye', 'Aaj Unse Milna Hai' and 'Prem Leela'] to plain mediocre. The silver lining is, one doesn't mind the mediocre tracks that crop up since the strong narrative more than compensates for everything else. Besides, the title track is a chartbuster and its choreography is the icing on the cake. Every frame is crafted wonderfully, with the DoP capturing the grandiose sets with splendour. The background score is effectual at most times. Action scenes are limited to the finale. Dialogue are in sync with the mood of the film. A couple of lines do stay with you for sure.

On the whole, PREM RATAN DHAN PAYO is the perfect Diwali entertainer for the entire family. The film will win abundant love [prem], while its investors will reap a harvest [dhan], making it a memorable Diwali for all concerned. This one's a record-smasher -- scoring from East to West and from North to South, scoring at plexes as well as single screens, scoring at metros as well as non-metros, scoring in the domestic market as well as in the international arena. B-L-O-C-K-B-U-S-T-E-R!
