Kill Dil is another one of those Bollywood films filled with action, romance, dance and everything Bollywood. At times “Kill Dil” shows true old school Bollywood masala trait but at times the film leaves you yearning for more.
The movie starts with two orphans Dev (Ranveer Singh) and Tutu (Ali Zafar) moving from crime to crime until Dev falls in love with Disha (Parineeti Chopra) and tries to reform his own ways but one man stands in his way called Bhayyia Jee (Govinda).
The chemistry between Ali and Ranveer is actually quite good. Ali Zafar plays the part of a conflicted reserved gangster with believability and Ranveer Singh once gain fits the bill with his bindass attitude kind of a guy and performs well in the role. However the chemistry between the two leads Ranveer and Parineeti is not that convincing enough. Much more is left to be desired but however Govinda puts on a powerful performance. Govinda’s performance alone could merit watching this movie.
At times however, the script comes with many same old Bollywood clichés of today like lame dialogues and comedy that takes the story nowhere and unnecessary use of music and songs to slow down the story even further.
However Shaad Ali has painted a quite dynamic picture of urban India with its entire social problem but the narrative is unnecessarily filled with unconvincing and unrealistic points across the plot. The cast is good enough and Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy have put up a good soundtrack for the movie. Overall if you are looking to be entertained and watch the old maestro Govinda in a new avatar than this movie fits perfectly for you but it’s not different from the many masala movies of today.
