Ratings:2.5/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive
Not nearly as bawdy as The Hangover, and missing the innocent charm of a film like Chashme Buddoor, Bhandarkar’s Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji is an occasionally entertaining comedy about three single men and their misadventures with the ladies.Dil To Baccha Hai Ji is too long for a light-hearted comedy, and the dialogue is pedestrian. Still it’s not a complete waste of time; there are some laughs to be had. I’m going with two-and-a-half out of five for director Madhur Bhandarkar’s Dil To Baccha Hai Ji. Don’t go in expecting too much, and perhaps you won’t be too disappointed.

On the whole, DIL TOH BACCHA HAI JI is a feel good, light-hearted rom-com, a slice of life film which the populace and the regular lay person would relate to. Madhur Bhandarkar changes tracks from his trademark women-oriented movies on contemporary issues to a rom-com, which has the unmistakable Bhandarkar signature to it, and emerges triumphant in his new fangled endeavor. The film carries a tagline that reads 'Love grows… Men don't', which seems most appropriate after one has watched it. DIL TOH BACCHA HAI JI, with its bona fide characters and pertinent situations, promises to bring a smile to your face and cheer you up. I strongly recommended it!Visit Site for More

Madhur Bhandarkar tries to change tracks. He attempts a switch-over from serious, hard-hitting cinema that chooses to expose the underbelly of society to a light-hearted look at the affairs of the heart. Does he succeed? Well, partially so. For Dil To Baccha Hai Ji may have its heart in the right place but the tone is a bit tenuous and the comedy only intermittently breezy. So where's the glitch? First, the love tangle gets repetitive; the length is a bit too long; the humour missing in many places and the Madhur make-over as a comedy maestro somewhat half-hearted. Nevertheless, there's enough mood and attitude in the film to make for a pleasant viewing.Visit Site for More

Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji has an interesting story but the characters and situations aren’t fleshed out enough. There is an inherent clumsiness and in places the film feels long and leaden. Still, if you keep your expectations low, it makes for mildly diverting entertainment.I’m going with two and three-quarters stars.Visit Site for More

A wannabe s** comedy in the garb of a trivialising rom-com, DTBHJ is about three men wanting to get laid at the audience's expense. Even more agonising is Bhandarkar's talent for handpicking astonishingly bad actors to play bit parts. That's another problem with the movie. It's overs**ed. Everyone wears a constantly aroused ex-pression and delivers the simplest lines with the intent of an innuendo. Ribald humour is amusing as long as the joke displays some levity or impudence to make it work. Instead Sanjay Chhel's sloppy lines revel in lame mischief and insipid wit. The screen is cluttered with secondary characters that pop in and out without bringing anything to the story other than add to the mess. And that's what Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji is, a silly jumble of misspent potential and hollow creativity.Visit Site for More

If the director wants to go easy, go souffle-hearted, crack some naughty PJs, log into the three guys desperate-for-love Chasme Buddoorish mode, why the hell not?.In principle Dil Toh Bacha Hai Ji is a move in the right direction, even a welcome change. The result, however, does not make you roll in the aisles, or leave the auditorium refreshed. You do smile and heh-heh occasionally, but that’s it: the impact is that of a joke book you’d pick up from a railway station stall. The book stays with you, the movie isn’t likely to. For the rest of the way, this Dil pill isn’t worth swallowing.Visit Site for More

Ahead of the film's release, Bhandarkar looked like a man with the mission of shaking off his ‘serious filmmaker’ image and making the world laugh. But with DTBHJ he seems to have tried so hard to make his characters and their lines funny that they all fall flat. The film may have got an ‘adults only’ certificate from the censors, but the humour remains forced and shamefully juvenile.A visit to the theatre may well not be worth it. A television premiere might be a better option.Visit Site for More
