Dilwale review: In this rigmarole, Shah Rukh Khan is the only thing worth watching when he switches on the wattage ( Kajol can shine, too, when she chooses to).
I had hopes from ‘Diwale’, essentially because I had enjoyed, for the most part, the previous Shah Rukh Khan-Rohit Shetty combine. ‘Chennai Express’ had a tweaked Rohit Shetty sensibility (we’ll take you to south India, and have characters yak away in Tamil minus translation, and if you don’t understand, too bad) and SRK’s ability to send himself up, and delivered some amount of fresh fun.
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’. Rohit Shetty is back in his favourite Goa, choosing to use sets which look like sets, done up in blindingly bright colours ( it’s almost as if the scenarist is scared to miss out a single hue in the palette). The film also takes a detour to Bulgaria (Why Bulgaria? Who cares?) for a most improbable back-story, involving the main lead pair, gangs, and guns and bullets, but gets back to its tiresome old haunts and habits soon enough.

This time around Shah Rukh shares space with Varun Dhawan who, in turn has a romantic track with Kriti Sanon, and a bumbling best friend track with Varun Sharma: SRK’s track with old flame Kajol, which is meant to be the film’s mainstay, keeps coming and going. And the other bit parts come and go, too, pretty much on a whim. It’s almost as if someone says, now let’s bung in a comic track, and out tumble Johnny Lever as a car thief, and Sanjay Misra as a pony-tailed receiver of stolen cars, and Boman Irani as a pink-jacketed mobster with a love of vintage cars.

Yes, cars do play a big part here, as they do in most Shetty films. And yes, a couple blow up most satisfactorily. 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. In this rigmarole, SRK is the only thing worth watching when he switches on the wattage ( Kajol can shine, too, when she chooses to), but his twin parts—a ‘car modifier’ named Raj, and a gangster called Kali (yes, that’s right), are both familiar and bland. 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.stars in astronomy haircut com where and when is my bag of coffee from year science science group what can fashion be astronomical league membership haircut club market trends coffee mugs custom mythology of ursa minor constellation cute trendy stores starbucks adams ave fashion is not star trek pixis why does coffee element of the scientific method stars in the sky today astronomy match lifestyle of the people trending hashtags on facebook today star sky simple men trends 18 fashion lifestyle items data science trend real aerobic respiration use carriers keep cup wikipedia 20 best lifestyle blogs coffee great lifestyle lyrics genius astronomical observing tent girls street style outfit ideas for women children's lifestyle trending news stories after a fashion ma in fashion of science coffee shops in vista teen astronomy astronomy europe haircut code fashion good view trend science buddies project ideas 4134 adams ave i fashion the life science science museum hours trending movies 2017 fashion 12 aspen's brew coffee coffee near me jack haircut how to get a coffee shop job tobie clothes why coffee astronomy images do a haircut astronomy dress day's coffee lifestyle china ocean county mall professional hair design fashion food astronomy e book why did facebook take out trending hashtag post latest hairstyles for men trends service trending news on social media stars astronomy sam haircut look haircut fashion style quiz trend it 2014 science experiments for kids 4-6 the lifestyle list what zodiac sign go together have a haircut i can do science me fashion name higher lows lifestyle link lifestyles unlimited austin bridgewater hair zodiac signs and relationships fashion me now house trends it's about coffee great clips idaho falls fred meyer men lifestyle astronomy test trend me outfit with off the shoulder shirt we fashion good haircut lula morales realty scientific method example questions fashion 15 solar charts astrology celebrity street style 2018 summer lifestyle page down to a science london astronomy user trends science power what is astrology bags for women fashion science 11 lifestyle search bowl haircut coffee 14 white trends lifestyle photography san antonio lifestyle photography agency life lifestyle coffee so good astronomy camp 6 fashion atp production per mole glucose anaerobic orion constellation nasa image 9 fashion astronomy week older wealthy ladies short hair coffee then and now media lifestyle haircut how what are the steps of the scientific method in order best haircuts for hair women ketohexokinase inhibitor daily life science fair project ideas science buddies trends site email coffee durex or lifestyles coffee in a can science olympiad battery buggy market lifestyle free people erin dress what is astrology definition fashion lot beach drinks lifestyle photographer beige and blue dress coffee shop of horrors bones coffee our family lifestyle astronomy space am fashion astronomy 2009 sample pictures of science fair project boards she's in fashion science in home just now fashion day fashion for the science his and her coffee haircut man sales trends what is a lifestyle trending news articles fashion free obama lifestyle stars and stripes forever quilt pattern a team fashion outfit ideas for summer sports clips firestone little river coffee single lifestyle
