Star cast: Shahrukh Khan, Kajol, Varun Dhawan, Kristi Sanon.
Director: Rohit Shetty.
One has great hopes from ‘Dilwale’ especially because their first venture Chennai Express was thoroughly enjoyable with all those Tamil dialogues without subtitles. Shahrukh could deliver a good amount of fresh fun.
Dilwale is set in Rohit’s favourite location, Goa with totally done up sets not missing a single hue from the palette. And the back story is set in Bulgaria.
Varun Dhawan, young lad has hots for Kristi Sanon. A bumbling best friend Varun Sharma. All his favourite characters like Jonny Lever, Sanjay Mishra, Makesh Tiwari, Pankanj Tripathi are just put in to fill up the gaps in the movie not adding even a bit to the storyline.
As in most Shetty films, cars do play an important role in the film’s storyline. Yes, only cars. ‘Dilwale’ on the whole is a plotless drag. The charm of Shahrukh and Kajol also did not work. The movie is bearable only and only if you are a diehard fan on Shahrukh.
