Director: Rohit Shetty
The movie revolves around two warring gangster clans in
Bulgaria! Randhir Bakshi (Vinod Khanna) is an Indian don who is
constantly warring with his once friend now foe, Malik (Kabir
Bedi)! Raj (Shahrukh Khan) is the adopted son of Randhir who is his
ace in this clan war and owing to him he manages ti win flick all
the gold from Malik. Raj is seen doing all kinds of desi version of
Fast and Furious stunts and looks rather cool. A whole lot of car
chases, death defying stunts, gun wielding action to steal gold
from the rival.
He is a mean machine who can do just about anything till he
comes across Meera (Kajol) and suddenly, Raj goes from mean machine
to a softie, only problem, he doesn't know her real
A whole lot of romance, gerua (colour me in the colour of love),
flowers, candle light dinners and all possible cliched love scenes
take place but the fact that it is Shahrukh Khan and Kajol enacting
them, somehow makes these scenes very intense and engaging.
After some betrayal and patch up, Raj and Meera make their
relationship work, only to be further ruined by a big betrayal from
her own clan which leads to their separation. This forms the 15
years of flashback that Raj never reveals to Veer (Varun
Presently, the brothers run a rather successful car modifying
garage and all is going well till he falls for the pretty damsel
Ishita (Kriti Sanon) who by fate happens to be Meera's younger
The 15 years of flashback are shown in parts as and when Raj
remembers his past and his one true love! How will Veer and Ishita
make their relationship work? Will Raj and Meera bury the hatchet?
What exactly happened between Raj and Meera that has made the
latter hate him? To get your answers, you ought to watch the
Coming to the performances of the actors, Kajol shines in the
first half when she simply comes alive on the big silver screen
with her performance and mesmerizing beauty! The actress not only
stuns you with her beauty but also shocks you with a major twist
that you least saw it coming. Shahrukh Khan on the other hand,
shines in the second half when he displays multiple shades in his
character. His rough look is simply super sexy and he enthralls us
with intense romance, perfect comic timing and rugged action
Like expected, Shahrukh-Kajol's chemistry is simply breathtaking
and one of the most engaging element of the movie. Without them,
Dilwale would not have been a great movie! Varun and Kriti's
chemistry is cute but it doesn't come up to the level of the big
experts of romance.
Kajol has never looked better and she can easily give the
youngsters a run for their money. Varun's comic timing is pretty
good and Kriti has managed to get noticed in this ensemble cast
movie, which is commendable.
Comic actors like Johnny Lever, Varun Sharma, Boman Irani,
Sanjay Mishra etc deserve major applause for they make you laugh,
you may not be rolling on the floor laughing but the jokes are
super funny. These actors were really pivotal to Dilwale
for every time there is a dip in the movie, these guys bring it
back up with their brilliant performance.
Rohit Shetty, for his level and type of direction has given a
rather entertaining, paisa vasool kind of movie with
cinematographer Dudley stealing the show with his picturesque
As entertaining as this movie is, there are a few negative
- Some tiny flaws in story which make no sense but its Bollywood!
- Over the board intense scenes between SRK-Kajol when he confronts her during the end of the movie.
- Slightly dragged climax scenes.
- Predictable story
- Old wine in new bottle! A known story revamped with SRK-Kajol!
- Not that great comedy which would make your stomach hurt!
As much as there are flaws, Dilwale keeps you engaged
all 3 hours!
Dilwale is great one time watch! A paisa vasool
entertainer that witnessed whistles in the theater throughout!
Viewers were seen clapping when the movie ended which shows that
Dilwale may not be an iconic classic like Bajirao
Mastani but SRK and cast will entertain you, especially if you
are a Shahrukh Khan fan!
Kajol is flawless in the movie! Her looks could kill you, she
looks that gorgeous and her character shades have also been enacted
Shahrukh Khan is Shahrukh Khan! The actor manages to get away
with just about anything! He romances well, his comic timing is
great and he fights awesome too!
Varun Dhawan has shown his comic side more in Dilwale and he
manages to tickle your funny bones.
While SRK-Kajol are the true stars in the move, there is enough
screen time for Varun and other actors to make their presence felt.
While Kriti has good screen time, her role is not that great, it
has no shades and scope for acting.
Shahrukh Khan and Kajol's chemistry is just too intense and the
duo look like real lovers on screen.
Rohit can't take any credit for story because it is the same old
wine in a new bottle but we can sure praise him for the way he has
presented the movie.
Comedy scenes are pretty good, while they don't make you laugh
rolling on the floor but they do manage to make you chuckle a
Good action scenes! Rohit has shot SRK's action scenes with
right mix of ruggedness and class.
Songs are the highlight, every song is perfect and
Not competition with Bajirao Mastani but nonetheless paisa
