Rating : 3/5
Raj( Shahrukh Khan) is simple and humble man who lives with his younger brother Veer(Varun Dhawan). As time passes by, Veer falls in love with Ishitha(Kriti Sanon) and some how convinces his brother to go talk to her family.
Raj agrees to it and lands at Ishtha’s house to speak to her sister. To his shock, Raj finds out that Ishita’s sister(Kajol) is none other than the one whom he shared a dreadful flashback 15 years back. An upset Raj leaves Meera’s house and disapproves his brother’s choice.
Why did Raj disapprove this marriage ? What is his relation with Meera ? Is there a past between the two of them ? What happens to Veer and his love story then ? To know all these answers, you need to watch the film on the big screen.
You always know that magic is created whenever Shahrukh Khan and Kajol reunite on screen and the same happens in Dilwale too. The rocking couple is the biggest and only asset of the film. If not for SRK and Kajol, the film would have been yet another routine story at the box office. Once again, SRK does a good job in his mature role and impresses big time.
But it is Kajol who eats away all the credit. She looks drop dead gorgeous and has a very strong character in the film. She looks superb in all the romantic scenes in the first half and carries the film with a lot emotions during the second half. The lead pair’s crackling chemistry is at full swing and oozes freshness on screen.
Kriti Sanon gets a decent role and is pretty good in the film. Varun Dhawan plays SRK’s blue eyed boy and does his supporting role well. After a long gap, Johhny Lever gives a hilarious performance and evokes superb laughs. First half is packed with rich visuals and beautiful songs.
Rohit Shetty films have never been high on story or performances. It is the way he packs solid entertainment in all his films and gives the family audience their full money’s worth. The same happens in Dilwale too but the quality of entertainment is a bit less this time as the second half has major flaws. Having said that, this film will do well at the box office for the star power and Sharukh-Kajol’s crackling chemistry.
