Ratings:2/5 Review By:Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN
It’s very hard to describe Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale as anything other than a mixed cuisine buffet, given that it tries to offer a little bit of everything to please just about everyone. The real problem with Dilwale is the sheer artificiality of the enterprise. From the rainbow-hued sets and the touched-up landscapes in the Gerua song, to many moments of comedic and emotional payoff, so much of it just feels fake.

DILWALE is similar to CHENNAI EXPRESS in several ways. Rohit Shetty focuses on the love story yet again, while the light moments, high-octane drama and aimed-at-masses dialogue -- the staple ingredients or fodder that contribute to a masalathon -- adorn the goings-on wonderfully.On the whole, DILWALE is akin to a mouthwatering meal that satiates the craving of those who relish masalathons, besides being an absolute treat for SRK-Kajol fans. An unadulterated crowd-pleaser, DILWALE delivers what you expect from a Rohit Shetty film: King-sized entertainment. Go for it!

On the whole, Dilwale is a masala entertainer from the start till the end. It will do good business at the box-office, mainly on the strength of the support of the youth and the masses. Distributors, many of who have acquired the film at unbelievably high prices, will scrape through. As for the producers, this one is a lottery – sorry, windfall! Yes, the producers may make a net profit of Rs. 80-100 crore in this film!!

To put it simply, Dilwale is a bizarre love story. SRK has done his share of bizarre love stories in his time, but this one just doesn’t get off the ground despite the superstar’s best efforts. There is more hate and distrust in Dilwale than love. No amount of good-natured clowning and old school romance can save it from sinking into a deep pit a patchiness. Watch it for Kajol and, to a lesser extent, for SRK. The rest of the actors on this vehicle, barring Varun Sharma on an occasion or two, are mere passengers.

Rohit Shetty's films are big-ticket adventures; a genre unto themselves. Low on content — plot lines borrowed (in this case Hum and Kasme Vaade), incohesive screenplay and lowbrow dialogues (Sajid-Farhad) — the film leans heavily on Shah Rukh's mega-stardom, Varun's effervescence, breathtaking locales (Iceland and Bulgaria), orchestrated car chases and over-the-top situations, which have you chuckling.

There’s nothing new in ‘Dilwale’, which steals moments not just from Rohit Shetty’s ‘Golmaal’ films, but also from Hollywood rom com ‘Love Actually’. But ‘Dilwale’, on the whole, is a plotless drag : the slaphappy antics you see on screen are a random jumble of light, camera, action, done in the broadest sense. When old hands SRK and Kajol look into each other’s eyes, they can still make you feel it, except it doesn’t happen enough. Not by a long shot.

Even the car stunts -- something Shetty is known for -- are unoriginal, coming to us from Goldeneye and The Fast And The Furious movies, and so Dilwale, which, in its convoluted, sloppy fashion, tries to pay homage to Mukul Anand's Hum -- a highly compelling action melodrama -- was always going to be an uphill climb.What we end up with barely gets off the ground. Ho-Hum.

Varun Dhawan is endearing and sincere as ever. Kriti gives good support. But then the younger couple, or for that matter everything else, fades into the background when SRK and Kajol look into each other's eyes. Even if you are not a Rohit Shetty fan, watch this for the chemistry between SRK and Kajol which refuses to simmer down even after all these years.

The film never promised to be a cerebral pleaser hence, if you go with the flow, you may even enjoy it. It shifts gears between action, romance and comedy and guess what all three have in common? Cars!For those who love to sit back and enjoy movies, this one could entertain you. I couldn’t thoroughly enjoy the film because of its highly predictable storyline. Although for all Rohit Shetty fans, this is another out and out commercial film that they would enjoy.

It is a perfect concoction of romance, action and comedy that Hindi film viewers generally look forward to. Even though it does not have the engaging storyline of Om Shanti Om, it is just about as, or even more entertaining, than Happy New Year. If entertainment is why you go to the theatres, then Dilwale will not disappoint you. The ending, however, is likely to receive applause only from the die-hard SRK fans. In all, it is a great family film with a comical spin on the timeless, Romeo-Julietesque love stories. Watch Dilwale, you won’t regret!

Ratings:3/5 Review By:Manjusha Radhakrishnan Site:GulfNews
Let me put a harsh truth out there first: Dilwale would have fallen flat on its face if it did not have Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan as its lead actors. It’s the kind of romantic drama that draws heavily on these two stars and their unrivalled on-screen chemistry. It’s the kind of entertainer where the story is an afterthought. And that’s a good thing. For every romantic song shot in picturesque locales, there was a car explosion that blew your mind away. Watch this only if you have a thing for watching Kajol and Khan on the silver screen.

Rohit Shetty’s movie is part ‘Baazigar’, part ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Ghum’, and loaded with ammunition and car chases. It could’ve possibly worked, but diluting vintage romance with Rohit’s style of pulp fiction reduces the effort to nothing short of painful.So, when the couple isn’t talking love or singing in exotic locations, they are busy pumping bullets, indulging in car chases and watching cars being blown up without any apparent reason. It’s a life that’s dangerously fun, or foolish.

  14. Movie Review on Bollyreviewsnow.com : Dilwale | Ratings: 2/5 | No Spoilers Guaranteed

    Dilwale is not just another masala recipe of a 300Cr film by Rohit Shetty but it is a full fledged combo deal. Along with 154 min of non stop torture, you also get bucket full of cliches, barrage of coincidences, frequent leaps of faith (making mockery of physics laws) and Salmonella infested rotten Johnny lever.

    Plot of this film was conceptualized in 1990. But before Rohit Shetty could construct a building (film) on this plot, municipality had put a stay order on it in public interest. At least 10-20 films got made on this plot including Angry young man's Hum and Thalaivar's Baasha. But, it didn't dissuade dauntless Rohit Shetty. He was super confident of dishing out this piece of crap and yet make 300Cr-500Cr with blessings of King Khan.

    Story of the film travels faster than the light and defies Einstein's theory of relativity. At 8:00 pm hero and heroine meets, At 8:05 they go on a date, At 8:10 they are madly in love with each other. Glad we have censor board in India, else God knows what all they would have done in 150 minutes :D

    SRK plays a larger than life character (as usual), who works double shift to remain competitive. In morning shift, he gives competition to DC (Dilip Chabbria) by metamorphosing Maruti 800 into BMW by tightening some screws. In night shift, he dresses up like Death Vader (from Star Wars) and takes badla from all those who have hurt his alter ego. Andheri raaton mein.. soonsaan galiyo par!!! That so much Shehanshah (King Khan after all). Having said that, his acting is quite restrained and you won't see his usual melodramatic emotional outburst.

    Kajol is in a love-hate relationship with SRK. Which side of the bed she has woken up from decides today is the love day or hate day. This love-hate relation keeps flipping for SRK and Kajol without any explainable logic. You can almost hear Rohit Shetty screaming on mike: Love - Hate - Hate - Love - Love - Hate - Love - Hate! Poor actors, what all they have to go through. For Varun Dhawan, Dilwale was one of his worst picks. Neither, he gets to show any killer dance moves nor there was any challenging role for him.

    Rohit Shetty casted Kriti Sanon while he was shopping for veggies in Sabji Mandi.
    Rohit: "Madam, lead actress chahiye. Kya Baav Diya ?"
    Kriti: " Rs 60 lakhs"
    Rohit:"60 lakhs mein 3 feet ki 2 legs. 10 lakhs/feet for each leg is not a bad deal. Done!"

    Johnny the dirty lever learnt his Hindi from Meenalochani of Chennai Express. Coz, I haven't seen anyone speaking Hindi in that accent in Kerala or for that matter anywhere in South India. His jokes are older than AK Hangal and staler than last year's Diwali sweets. Boman Irani, Sanjay Mishra, Pankaj Tripathi, Vinod Khanna are all unbearable. Mind you, it needs a mastermind to waste such a breed of talented actors.

    One example of leap of faith: There are 2 rival gangs in the film. Both gangs have super strong intelligence team who know every deal of rival gang - which deal, when,where.. everything! Except they don't know family members of rival gangs supremo. What!!! Ravan mar gaya aur Sita kaun thi??

    Statuary Warning: This film is made only for those with IQ less than 80. Please get your IQ level checked with MENSA before watching this film. Any frustration arising out of mockery made to your intelligence is not director's responsibility. Nor it is liable to any legal action with punitive damages.

    Verdict: Instead of buying tickets of this film, invest that money in your savings back account. Even at 4% interest rate, you'll get higher return!

  18. DILWALE:
    Guns and Roses, Jammed and Wilted! [2/5]

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Pretending is ridiculous. I really wonder how could someone disregard this golden rule of comedy and still call himself a master of the same. Rohit Shetty’s DILWALE suffers heavily from this exact syndrome where almost everyone involved with the project pretends to be someone else. Rohit acts [behind the camera, as director] as if he’s none less than Late Mukul Anand. Varun Dhawan makes faces as if he’s his dad’s favorite Govinda. Kajol and Shahrukh pretend comfortably to be in a love-story within a comedy within an action thriller [Now you know why Varun compares it with INCEPTION. Yeah, he did. You heard it right!]. The film itself lives in a make-believe world to be a HUM (1991) in plot-construction and DDLJ (1995) in promotional gimmicks. And pretending is ridiculous, I tell you. So, the only two who don’t fall in the pit are Pankaj Tripathi and Sanjay Mishra; one plays a character [where mosts play their aura] and the other does a spick and span imitation of Jeevan Saab.

    DILWALE settles its base in Asian Paints sponsored Buenos Aires, Venice and Charleston parts of Goa. Kids here if not driving modified multihued cars, sure would find themselves in a clash for ‘tera laal mere laal se jyada laal kaise?’. Raj [Shahrukh Khan] with his younger brother Veer [Varun Dhawan] runs a Dilip Chhabria inspired garage-cum-design factory and stays mostly as calm as Aloknath in any Barjatya film. Well, mostly. Soon, you find him throwing professional punches on 10-12 goons in a Shahenshah-like working module at nights to ensure audiences that the guy definitely has a dark past behind. Plot gets thicken when Veer meets Ishita [Kriti Sanon] and Raj discovers that the girl is the younger sister of his ex-flame Meera [Kajol]. The star-crossed lovers have many secrets to unravel including murders, betrayals and mix-ups.

    So what if it belongs to an average formula of 90’s; DILWALE had a decent story to start with until Rohit Shetty starts promoting it as a great story. Bringing the best on-screen couple together after so long was alone a big pull for the film but Rohit couldn’t hold himself from polluting the same breezy idea of romance with his colossal caring for flying cars, blasting cars, drifting cars, toppling cars and the very dry and dreary sense of slapstick comedy. Since when and why do the charm of Shahrukh and the flair of Kajol need substantial comic sub-tracks having Boman Irani, Johnny Lever, Varun Sharma and Mukesh Tiwari? The film’s high points are mostly with Kajol where she looked, acted and ruled the screen in same potion of intensity, integrity and beauty she’s been always admired for. DILWALE also fails to recreate the chemistry between Kajol and Shahrukh. Rohit does ensure that they both look their best on-screen but it all comes out as a lifeless still postcard and not as a lively moment to cherish.

    On the performances, Shahrukh does exactly what he’s been doing in CHENNAI EXPRESS & HAPPY NEW YEAR. He charms the ladies, woos the fans, promotes brands and guarantees a ‘No risk’ cover for his producers [He himself is the one]. Varun Dhawan becomes pathetic, irritating and unbearable at times. Kriti is good, balanced and doesn’t disappoint. Varun Sharma is wasted, especially in a girlfriend-bashing monologue inspired by Kartik Aryan’s in PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA. Kajol is the only redeemer here but in those tiresome and trivial 2 hr 34 min of total duration, trust me, even her spark begins to fade.

    At last, Rohit Shetty’s DILWALE is another product that highlights the demand and supply rule in Bollywood. Why to waste time and money on hunt for a concrete story if you can easily make hefty lot of money by just arranging some hit formula-bricks, without even considering the right order it should be in. The film sees around 100 brand tie-ups on opening graphic-plates; I missed brands for pain-relief tablets there. Take a pill, before you try to chill in the theatre! [2/5]

    1. Always follow what gaurav review says...not going to watch this one. May waste my time on TV in near future

  19. Brilliant movie I have to say

  21. lol, one must read this before going to watch Dilwale. Laugh guaranteed, just read the link provided: http://www.theunrealtimes.com/2015/12/18/theater-audience-of-dilwale-attacks-shiv-sena-office-after-interval-for-allowing-its-release/

  22. Really good a Rohit shetty style movie.....
    Everyone was grt

  23. Isse kharab movie nhi banayi ja sakti.... Congratulations to Rohit Shetty n Team

    1. I do agree with you, n surprised about people comment about its good...

  24. To be honest... I have never seen such a boring movie...
    Plotless,hopeless, its running due to add nothing else...

  25. Dilwale could have been a crisper film, but it nevertheless serves up a deliciously thrilling experience. It’s a given that we go into these films, wondering what SRK will pull off next. The star-producer keeps that curiosity going and that charisma alive, and delivers blockbuster bliss. There’s no sequel fatigue with these movies…bring on the next one!
    Dilwale is a crowd-pleaser in every sense of the term. It’s funnier, better acted, and far superior, chronicled the unlikely union of its mismatched protagonists the flat-out delightful. I haven’t laughed this hard during any film recently. Watch it for SRK, who’s at the top

  26. shit, shit ...shit movie. people are to be crazy and hopeless to like this movie.
