    Release date 08 Jan 2010

    Critics Review

    • The recipe is simple and uncomplicated...
      Take My Fair Lady.
      Add Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye.
      Spray Naseeb Apna Apna.
      Sprinkle Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.
      Hey presto, Dulha Mil Gaya is ready to serve.

      In fact, My Fair Lady has been a hot favourite of Bollywood. Recall Man Pasand [Dev Anand, Tina Munim] or Hum Tere Aashiq Hain [Jeetendra, Hema Malini]. Similarly, a number of storytellers have rehashed Rajshri's all-time hit Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye [Prem Krishen, Rameshwari] in various avtaars, over the years.

      Dulha Mil Gaya is a mix of the above-named films. Like they say in filmi lingo, it's old wine in new bottle. So what? How different can a love story be, since this genre has been done to death in Bollywood? Point noted, but the narrative ought to be engaging if it has to strike a chord and that's where Dulha Mil Gaya falters.

      Merely assembling A-listers and filming the movie at panoramic locations isn't enough. The film ought to have meat and that's missing here.

      Let me elaborate. Debutante director Mudassar Aziz, who has also penned the script, borrows from the past, going for the tried-and-tested stuff, but the narrative, already low on fuel, comes to a grinding halt by the time it reaches its finale.
