With Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale, all you can think of is the same pot-boiler story, repeated over and over again with nothing in it of interest. The only fresh thing is watching Kajol back on screen after her hiatus. The film is nonsensical on many levels and gets tiresome pretty early.
What Shetty doesn’t seem to realize is the fact that Bollywood audiences have grown now. With exposure to Hollywood films and TV shows, there is an abundance of entertainment material for young, suave, urban youth. And bombing cars doesn’t really help beyond a point, especially if they are rip-off scenes from popular Hollywood flicks.
Talking about SRK, it is pretty weird for him to still keep on playing 20 something in almost all his films where he has a leading lady. People might flock to watch him and Kajol expecting the same DDLJ magic on screen. However, the 90s kids have grown up, and they need more than just plain romance and romantic songs in exotic locations.
Whether people went to watch the film out of boredom or because they wanted the SRK-Kajol pair onscreen, the outlandish script and the way the film moves towards the climax is nonsensical, to say the least.
