Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon plays love couple with some conflicts between them. Dhawan is younger brother to Raj and has no idea about his family .When the couple realise that they are made for each other , Director Rohit shetty reveals a major Twist . What is the Twist?, Why Raj transforms from gangster to machinic?  Watch on Big screen.


For Shah Rukh Khan , these kind of films are like cake walk, He enacting such roles with flourish so early of his career. SRK has experimented with his look in the film from debonair look to machinic. Kajal revisits her characters Anjali, Simran in Meera character, not just the character , her performance is of high order. Varun Dhawan is comic and Kriti sanon looks glamorous and alluring but lacks meat in her character.

The Chemistry between SRK and Kajol is evergreen and different, they have injected their experience making the scene believable, rather cinematic. SRK transformation from gangster to machinic and shedding tears as tortured lover was adorable.
Director Rohit Shetty after comedy blockbusters like Bol bachchan and ‘chennai Express, failed to make ‘Dilwale’ a full fledged entertainer. However he gave Hollywood style stunts like car chases, explosions swivels. Rohit Shetty tried his hand at a family drama which is neither funny nor serious, which turned into colossal mess. Although few rib tickling comedy scenes in first half like SRK’s entry scene with johnny lever.

Red Chilli entertainments has not compromised in making it a grand film with Top notch camera work , stunning stunts, catchy dialogues, and songs. The picture was shot in Bulgaria,Abu Dhabi,Cape Town,Goa,Mauritius and of course RFC in India.However the story is boring and not at all fresh and also predictable. The first half is dominated by Kajol and Khan and the second half is just engaging. Overall  , Dilwale is a plausible entertainer .
