Kill Dil

Director: Shaad Ali
Actors: Ranveer Singh, Ali Zafar, Parineeti Chopra, Govinda

Rating: 2 / 5

Portrayed as yet another Yash Raj movie with grey shades, this movie had nothing new and even old formulas didn’t work well. Good background laughter was tried throughout the first half and they succeeded more than few times in that. Unfortunately no attempt was made to build a plot whatsoever. Rather whatever was being shown had no directions at all. Only at the end for a minute moment, something made sense but the movie was over by then.

It gave a feel that director had no interest to make this flick meaningful and he is happy with whatever substandard commercial material is being made. Shaad Ali is still struggling for more than a decade now after Saathiya, to direct something concrete.

Govinda came into a character role this time and showed some promise. Unfortunately for him, his full potential was not extracted as he could have been used more and in a much better way. Ranveer Singh and Ali Zafar had nothing unique to show and their acting was substandard. For the first time in so many movies, I’d not praise Parineeti Chopra although I’ll blame director for that.

Songs were not up to the mark and stopped the movie flow consistently. Albeit the Kill Dil title track was good and background score was the only thing that kept the movie alive.

Overall, a disappointment in all major fronts which was just made watchable somehow.
