Kill Dil (2014) Review!!

kill-dil-movie-newsSynopsis – Two killers – Tutu (Ali Zafar) and Dev (Ranveer Singh) were nurtured by Bhaiyaji (Govinda) who trained them to be sharp shooters. Things take an unexpected turn when Dev falls in love with Disha (Parineeti Chopra) and decides to leave his violent life.

My Take – Sometimes, when you decide to come out of your comfort zone & create something new, chances are you may end up failing, this is what exactly happened with this film & director Shaad Ali’s vision, who unlike his previous romantic comedy endeavors tries to mix the gangster flavor to his normal formula. Just like previous flicks Bunty Aur Babli(2005) & Jhoom Barabar Jhoom (2007), Shaad has a talented cast in his hands, but manages to fail them (in spite their great performances) with a weak script & shoddy direction. The first half starts off as revamped version of YRF’s other outing this year Gunday (Also starting Ranveer Singh), & then nothing!

kill-dil_650_111514104513Throw in a few comic sequences, songs along with romance & bro mance (which works big time!), & just like that the interval is up! While the 2nd half tries to take a more serious note, the film just gets too predictable! The music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy is noteworthy with some exceptional songs & choreography, but the misplacement of each one of them do nothing but hinder the proceedings. Among the performances, Ranveer Singh is in terrific form, yet again! The talented actor enacts the love-struck young-blood with enviable energy & conviction. With the ample screen time he has been presented, its pretty clear this film despite its multi star cast notion is actually his showcase, & man he doesn’t disappoint! Ali Zafar has a great screen presence, he uses his charm & acting chops to supports Ranveer, wonderfully.

kill-dil-movie-7Parineeti Chopra looks gorgeous & delivers a fair performance, but its high time she tries a different character other than playing a free spirited girl in every single movie! & at last but not the least, the only reason I was excited about watching this film – Govinda. He springs a pleasant surprise. He nails it as the main antagonist! His laughter, his philosophies & mannerism is something which we have loved & adored for years, but never like this! He is a delight to watch! If only his appearance was more extended. On the whole, ‘Kill Dil’ is strictly a watchable fare, that’s bogged down by a half-baked Screenplay & an abrupt end, with the performances of the main cast being probably the only reason left to maybe watch this film.
