Director- Shaad Ali
Kill Dil are the characters driven by fashion class. They love jackets and goggles even when they are gunning down the targets given or being punched by their foes. The makers have the cinematic liberty and we allow them to take its full advantage. But Shaad Ali despite taking much liberty for
Kill Dil doesn’t kill the sole purpose of the entire movie. The drama has the tendency to keep you hooked to your seats without any forced scene to spoil the mood.
The ‘Saathiya’ and ‘Bunty and Bubly’ fame director has made a good recovery from his last disaster ‘Jhoom Barabar Jhoom’ and will be appreciated for his work.
Kill Dil opens with teenage brothers-like-friends Tutu (Ali Zafar) and Dev (Ranveer Singh) who are abandoned and weak. But the local goon Bhaiyaji (Govinda) takes the duo under his wings and trains them to be professional killers.
Enter Disha (Parineeti Chopra), a free spirited lady into Dev’s life. And the two fall in love with each other but Bhaiyaji does not accept their relationship. Now Dev has two choices, either to ‘Kill’ or ‘Dil’.
Now, don’t be fooled by its deja-vu premise. Kill Dil has innovation with its altered screenplay and execution. Yes, the logics take a back seat here but not to an extent that spoils the flow. The director mostly uses the dialogues and his character, the blend of which helps in making this movie entertaining.
Little predictable but who cares when you are supplied with ample moving scenes. Take the camaraderie of the two friends- Dev and Tutu or their equation with ‘Bhaiyaji’, the moments never fall short of amusement.
The love chemistry between Disha and Dev takes a special mention here with their adorable interaction and so interesting are their performances.
But it’s Govinda who steals the show. It’s hard to believe that it’s the same actor who did ‘Hero No. 1’ in 90s. The anti-hero role he plays is par excellence.
Ranveer Singh who usually has sported a grungy look with stubble, tones down for his soft character. He brings out the softer, innocent and endearing act with efficiency.
Parineeti Chopra after a lot of de-glam roles finally gets to show her alluring side while her act compliments the scene.
Ali Zafar plays his character with perfect attitude. Mostly we have seen him in comic roles but as a serious goon he surprises us all.
Music also comes out as a big winner. The trio of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy has given brilliant music in the past and this time again they compose a brilliant score altogether. Bol Beliya and Sajde are our picks from the album.
