DIWALE – WHY SHAHRUKH WHY ?

 

DIL

The trailer gave us a glimpse that Dilwale could be a boring senseless film but I decided to take the risk hoping that the film as a whole package would prove me wrong. I went in hoping to see Kajol – SRK chemistry instead I saw two worn out stars trying to fool us that the magic is still alive.

It is a pity to see two magnificent stars being forced to re-live a cliche. Both Shahrukh and Kajol are very much capable of delivering mature performances in roles that suit their age. I wonder why none of directors dare to explore and give them something challenging. Is it the fault of the makers or the actors ?

It is supposedly a Rohit Shetty film but his trademark comic elements are rarely visible except in a few scenes.  It is neither Rohit Shetty nor an SRK film and that’s where the film fails big time for even in a commercial film you have to know your target audience. This film fails both Rohit Shetty and SRK fans.

If you are wondering why I haven’t discussed the plot or the rest of the cast the less said the better. Rohit Shetty has a stellar cast at his disposal and completely wastes them. 

Strictly stay away even if you are a fan of the evergreen pair. If you do want to get nostalgic on a weekend catch their earlier films on DVD.  Rohit Shetty please stop torturing us and give us a film with a proper plot. You owe it to your audience.

MY RATING 1/5

  1. I thought the plot will be mature and will bring out the best in them. Disappointed. The big mistake is we love SRK and Kajol for their acting and not for the romance. Sad the director did not get it.

    One more movie off the watching list.Thanks Salesh.
