Dolly Ki Doli  Hindi Movie Review

Ratings:3/5 Review By:  Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN
Too bad the script reveals gaping holes as it unfolds, never adequately satisfying us. I wasn’t convinced either that Dolly or her gang performs these cons for financial gain. And yet, despite these shortcomings, I will admit, I enjoyed the film. Dogra gives us endearing characters. Never overstaying its welcome, the film is short and a lot of fun. I’m going with three out of five for Dolly Ki Doli. It’s worth watching for Rajkummar Rao’s excellent performance alone.

On the whole, Dolly Ki Doli is an enjoyable entertainer which will keep the audience smiling/laughing but business-wise, it will prove to be an average fare because of its extremely poor start. Of course, collections will pick up due to mouth publicity, and the additional national holiday on Republic Day (26th January) will prove to be beneficial for the film, but since there are other films slated for release next week, it has only its first week to do the maximum business; and the dull initial will tell on the first week’s business.

With its winsome ensemble of actors, background actors and walk-in parts, the lighthearted caper radiates an attractive energy that’s pleasant to be around even if hardly profound. Moreover, Dolly Ki Doli goofs on the coy dulhan stereotype with such wicked relish it never gets dull.

There is much to like in Dolly Ki Doli. Or, let us put it this way: there isn't much to dislike in Dolly Ki Doli. Dolly is a rebel all right, but the precise motivations for her battle against the established social order never emerge with clarity. As a result, the character remains a blurry blob as she takes one man after another for a ride. But for all its obvious flaws and failings, Dolly Ki Doli is not completely unworthy of the 100 minutes that it demands from the audience..

Debutant director Abhishek Dogra's con-bride story is simple and refreshing. It's filled with some laughable moments, hilarious performances and quirky characters. There aren't too many highs or dramatic turns; Dolly's past story is unconvincing and her track with Pulkit is the weak link in the plot. The climax is a sweet surprise, so hold on for it. After wedlocks across the country, there's only one faint picture of Dolly's shaadi? Really? What's 'app', guys?

‘Dolly Ki Doli’ has a great idea, and starts off well, but then falls into a familiar trap– of a single-track leading lady piloting a half-baked plot. But the plotting and the treatment of the character shows up Kapoor’s limitations : she is good-natured, but not versatile. Ultimately, ‘Dolly Ki Doli’ is neither biting social comment, nor unfettered fun.

But the problem with Dolly Ki Doli is that it does not give a plausible ending to the story. Dogra, who co-wrote Dolly Ki Doli with Uma Shankar Singh, did have an interesting plot -- the journey of a girl who takes on the bad world of men and the hypocrite institution of marriage. But why does she do it? That is exactly where Dogra's script fails. So should you watch Dolly Ki Doli? Go for it, for the entertaining performances. Despite the shoddy script and loose strings, this is worth a watch.

On the whole, DOLLY KI DOLI is a stress buster that will make you smile as you'll leave the theatre. Debutante director Abhishek Dogra has competently extracted superb performances from the entire starcast. The unpredictable climax of the film works to the advantage too. But the four day weekend will help this Dolly ensnare many patrons. The word of mouth will be the key in witnessing the growth. We say, it's a roller coaster entertainer. Enjoy it with your families.

Dolly Ki Doli is a simple-n-sweet entertainer that promises fun and laughter in those 1.40 hours. Tight screenplay. Competent direction. Dolly Ki Doli also works because of wonderful performances by Sonam Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, Pulkit Samrat and Varun Sharma.

Dolly Ki Doli is a time-pass entertainer that you can enjoy if you keep your brains at home. This film comes as a breath of fresh air from all the South remakes and thought-provoking dramas that are most oftenly served. After particularly loving Varun Sharma’s comic antics and Rajkummar Rao’s sheer genuine acting, I am going with a 2.5/5 for this peppy film.

  1. Why Sonam Kapoor Kyon isko le kar picture bana lete hain bollywood waale. Dolly Ki Doli ke reviews kuch bhi ho it is going to be flop

  2. have heard lot of stories on TV about looteri dulhan now they made Dolly Ki Doli about it . I hope movie will be good but whatever the reviews i will not watch it due to Sonam Kapoor

  3. Story seems too similar to that time waster Dawaat E Ishq

  4. I saw khoobsurat movie after reading some very good reviews ,but the movie turned out to be totally dumb. Sonam Kapoor irritates. So however good the film might be I want watch it even if I get a free pass.

  5. Not worth watching.. she does overreacting like her hairy dad.. don't waste your time our money.. I'd rather watch baby...

  6. Below avg movie...1.5 star for only male actors performance...story was strong but exeutin was too 100 min stroy...there were 4 songs..20 min cut thn remaing 80 min stroy couldnt interect with audience...why sonam kapor was con??? There was no ans in da film.

  7. How good movie may be ..wont want watch it just becoze of sonam Kapoor...she just dont knw acting

  8. DOLLY KI DOLI: An enjoyable ride! Short & sweet!! [2.5/5]

    Marriage is a box full of surprises. You never know what comes next and in what shape, each & everyday. Sometimes, you keep waiting for one all your life and it never happens. But few are really the luckiest to have it experienced the very first morning. At least, for the on-screen grooms and their families in Abhishek Dogra’s con-comedy DOLLY KI DOLI!

    A fake, cheat and single-minded bride is on loose to con filthy rich grooms. She [Sonam Kapoor, too fragile for a con artist] makes the target fall in love with her, marries him, drugs the whole family on her very last of the ‘first nights’ and runs away with all their shitloads of money and jewellery. In her victims, there is Sonu Sehrawat [Rajkummar Rao] a Haryanvi flashy boy and a desperate mumma’s boy from Delhi [Varun Sharma of FUKREY fame]. Picture this; when they meet each other appreciating the fact that Dolly is the one married to both, Varun asks naively, “bhai, iss hisaab se humara rishta kya hua? (Bro, what kind of relationship we are in now?”. Giggles come with guarantee at such cases and there are many in DOLLY KI DOLI, no doubt on that.

    Based on a real chain of events and a crime-story of ‘Looteri Dulhan’ in northern India, Abhishek Dogra’s DOLLY KI DOLI works because of the humor in the script that comes easy like one after the other and the characters who despite being the typical ones, charm you endlessly. Rajkummar Rao is in top form. Watching him dancing like there’s no one to care in an item number with Malaika, is a treat. His Haryanvi is perfectly portrayed and wins your heart by the simplicity in the character and the sincerity in the performance. Sonam plays Dolly with total ease yet she doesn’t look very convincing as a con artiste. Varun is cute, indeed. He, in a sense continues his FUKREY performance. So, if you had liked him earlier, have another slice of the same. Pulkit Samrat as the cop after Dolly’s capture definitely had Salman Khan’s Chulbul Pandey in DABANGG as his acting reference. Taking cues from Salman’s dialogue, “hum yahaan ke robin hood hain”, he even possesses the name Robin.

    And then, my favorite track in the film. Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub [of RAANJHANAA] plays the fake brother to Sonam’s Dolly and at one point; he declines to play her brother anymore as he has romantic feelings for her. This alone has so much potential in creating comedy and drama both. Alas, it wasn’t treated well. Film’s biggest strength is the length. In its crisper than masala papad 107 mins of total duration, film could have been a laugh-riot but it comprises with being just an enjoyable watch; and the culprit here is the uneven screenplay lacking the power to convince. Film hurriedly tries to justify Dolly’s reasons to go for fake marriages after she fails in one. In today’s times, can you imagine a courtship of more than a couple of months and there is no ‘kiss’ happening between the two because of the stupidest of all ‘yeh sab shaadi ke baad’ excuse? All because, we can’t show our bad girl being so bad! Black is here not so dark. I wish writing in Bollywood gets mature soon.

    At the end, DOLLY KI DOLI is an enjoyable ride you won’t regret much after leaving theatre. Rajkummar Rao ensures most of it. It’s short & sweet unlike Indian marriages. [2.5/5]

  9. Bollywood Chaska...January 27, 2015 at 1:26 AM

    What comes on your mind when you are thinking of a marriage...Huge ceremony,Lots of guests,some daaru sharu And much more but beware, marriage can take u down on the road...Abhisekh Dogra's Dolly k Dolli is a movie where we can find a sweet fragnance of romance,a light dose of emotion and last but not the least a well standard comedy..The film is about how Dolly(Sonam Kapoor) and her partners fool various people in the name of marriage.....The story of the movie has got quite resemblance to Parineeti.Chopra and Aditya Roy Kapoor starer Daawat-e-Ishq still the direction and superb acting by each snd every character are quite praisable..Rajkumar Yadav and the Fukrey Duo Pulkit samrat and Vineet sharma does an excellant job.Sonam Kapoor is ok..Mohammed zeeshan Ayub is good.....Music is quite average and also the climax is not tht great....overall the film is a one time watch.Go for it if you are too bored of something and in search of some refreshment...My Rating 2.5/5

  10. With a tough competition from Neeraj Pandey’s Baby, Abhishek Dogra releases his debut film ‘Dolly ki Doli’, under Arbaaz Khan Productions, this week.

    Dolly (Sonam Kapoor) is a con artist who marries young men, drugs them on the wedding night and runs away with all their wealth. In these series of events, Dolly is supported by her fake family consisting of a father (Manoj Joshi), a mother (Zeena Bhatia), a brother (Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub) and a grandmother (Rajani Vaidya). Soon Dolly grabs media attentions who label her as ‘Looteri Dulhan’. The case is handed over to a top cop Robin Singh (Pulkit Samrat) who promises to track down Dolly in a few months.

    Dolly ki Doli scores big on the content it serves. A ‘Looteri Dulhan’ is not easily available in Bollywood. Plus the way the director narrates these series of events is a joy to watch. But some scenes are hard to believe in this 21st century, you would realize that once you see the film. I would have liked Dolly ki Doli more if it would have been a little more realistic.

    Sonam Kapoor plays her part well, not much to complain here. In Dolly’s family, her grandmother (Rajani Vaidya) is hilarious, inspite of the fact that she only gets to say a single dialogue. Varun Sharma yet again impresses after Fukrey. Pulkit Samrat is decent. Though, the show stealer here is Rajkumar Rao, a ‘Haryana ka Jatt’. You are guaranteed to love his Haryanvi accent and his dialogue delivery.

    With running time of only 100 minutes, Dolly ki Doli is short, crisp and sweet. Don’t put in much expectation. Just go and have a good laugh.

    Rating- 2.5/5
