The dud second half feels copied-and-pasted in from some Big Bollywood Book of Star-Crossed Lovers, tossing out one implausible, indigestible chunk of melodrama after another.
Easily their most forgettable outing; one of the worst of 2015...
If you're a Shah Rukh fan, we won't even bother with a reason. But even if you aren't, watch it for the magic the hit jodi (pardon the corny cliché) creates.
Dilwale hugely banks upon Khan's stardom and he tries his best to reciprocate. The rest of Dilwale has a very little heart.
The deliberate attempt to repackage and sell the Kajol-SRK romance of yore backfires, seeming like a pale shadow of the magic there once was.
Even in the context of Shetty's oeuvre, Dilwale is a low. It made me nostalgic for Chennai Express.
Rohit Shetty's films are big-ticket adventures; a genre unto themselves.
Dilwale is the quintessential popcorn flick. It's colorful, bright and entertaining.
Just like the string of swanky cars and comic sidekicks rolled out in Dilwale, the movie is mostly sheen with a smattering of substance.
There are slapdash references to many Hindi films past. If you are a Bollywood junkie, there is much dialogue you have heard before. You can almost finish the lines before the character on screen does.
Careening from romance to action to comedy like one of the vrooming cars that pop up in every Shetty production, Dilwale is a movie in need of a road map.
So insipid is Dilwale's screenplay, and the outcome so inevitable, that there is nothing really to engage the audience, especially in the second-half.
There are no featured reviews for Dilwale at this time.
