DURATION: 2 hours 35 minutes

Rating: 2.5/5

The most  awaited film Dilwale released today worldwide. Directed by blockbuster director Rohit Shetty. The movie had everything – expensive cars, exotic locales, action sequences, drama, love, romance and not to forget the most loved couple  in the B-town Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol as they rekindle their romance on screen.

It’s a complete Rohit Shetty film with Vir (Varun Dhawan)younger brother of Kaali (Shah Rukh Khan), the don’s younger brother having a garage and also has a business of modified cars. Kaali has become the good guy Raj in Goa who lives with his brother and hasn’t shared his past with Vir.

Vir falls in love with Ishita (Kriti Sanon) who happens to be Meera’s (Kajol) younger sister and Meera is Kaal’s past. Quite predictable indeed. Well like the usual SRK-Kajol love stories this is a love-hate story between the two.

Cut to 15 years (flashback time) two powerful Indian mafia dons (Vinod Khanna and Kabir Bedi) reside in Bulgaria, they rule and compete with each other to an extent that Meera in awe of her father plays the game of love with Kaali and gets hold of all the illegal gold information which Kaali vents out in love. Later he realises that Meera just wanted the information. Kaali by then was head over heels in love with Meera, however when Meera realises her love for Kaali and the two Mafia dons meet to start a new relationship Meera’s dad plays another game and makes sure Meera misunderstands Kaali for killing her father. This animosity seeps in Meera for 15 long years and she hates Kaali until the time Meera realises Ishita loves Vir.

After 15 years when Raj and Meera meet they make sure that they sustain as rivals and Meera wants Vir to leave Raj and stay with Ishita as Raj is sautela bhai of Vir. Well typical sautela Bhai track.As the epitome dialogue dil toh Sab Ke pass Hota hai par Sab Dilwale nai hote, Raj and Meera unite with the help of Vir and Ishita.

The story grips in after half an hour. It’s slightly slow paced in certain parts. The story is quite predictable. The fights sequences, cars exploding is typical Rohit Shetty style movie.

One can watch the movie solely for SRK and Kajol as their romantic moments are to watch out for. Kajol is seen in greyish  avtaar which is something new for the audience. While the movie depends on Shah Rukh Khan’s shoulder. He is the whole and soul of the film. He has donned two looks the pre beard look which will make you recollect his 90’s films. While the beard look will make you fall in love with him. SRK has the same charismatic dept in his eyes when he romances and delivers a romantic dialogue.

Aah! And to forget Varun Sharma the Fukrey guy he charmed yet again with his comic timings doing the Pyaar Ka Punchnama act of mehngai and patting a girlfriend. Despite having baaps of comedy Sanjay Mishra, Johhny Lever and ace actor Boman Irani. Varun Sharma had his screen presence felt.


More than SRK- Kajol romance, it was more of SRK and Varun Dhawan bromance. Varun was trying his best to ape SRK but certainly there is one and only one SRK. Varun was at his best in his previous films but in this film he was more of a supporting cast. Kriti Sanon apart from being a well dressed candy girl had a meaty role to play.The movie has good and soothing songs with breathtaking location in the song Gerua. While the song Janam Janam also moves with the story line. Rest of the songs fails to attract and unnecessarily longer the movie duration.

Dialogues are average. While the ending scene which has SRK and Kajol is the best so far. When SRK tells Kajol the famous dialogue of DDLJ ‘Bade bade desho mein aisi choti choti baatein hoti rehti hai.’

The movie is by far an extension to DDLJ, but not as epic as DDLJ for sure. After all 15 saaal, 4 Mahiney aur 10 din beet Gaye!

Watch it for SRK and his romance. He is back with what he does the best and that too the most loved jodi Kajol and SRK. The movie will give you everything after all it’s a Rohit Shetty film.
