Film:Kill/Dil Director: Shaad Ali
Cast: Ranveer Singh, Ali Zafar, Govinda, Parineeti Chopra
Story: Two orphans, Dev (Ranveer Singh) and Tutu (Ali Zafar) are discovered and raised by Bhaiyaji a gangster (Govinda) who plays an antagonist in the film.
Govinda not only brings up the two orphans but mentors both of them to be hitmen in his gang. All is fine in the movie till time Disha (Parineeti Chopra), whose day job is to rehabilitate ex-convicts enters and fills the air with love but this does not please Bhaiyaji as the lover boy wants to opt out of the life of crime he is trapped in. Govinda is hell bent on preventing him from making a clean exit.
What follows next after Disha enters their life makes the plot of the movie. The choice is between 'Kill' and 'Dil'.
Review: Shaad has tried to be original but the endeavour looses grip in some places. The movie exudes the feel of 90s. While Ranveer seems to be rocking his look, Ali Zafar comes up as way too affable in the role of a ruthless goon.
Govinda in a new avatar makes people inquisitive but the actor still seems enjoying his tapping more than anything else.
Moving on, we have Parineeti who in a paradox to her character in the movie, where she rehabilitates ex-convicts, appears quite glamorous. Her screen presence also looks pretty impressive.
When it comes to acting, all the actors seem to have done a fair job but the film somewhere fails to hold attention throughout.
Though KILL/DIL seems to be predictable, it is also entertaining in parts. The dialogues make the film an enjoyable ride.
Sukhwinder Singh in a cute cameo and doing his own playback is an add on. The songs make perfect sense, thanks to Gulzar's lyrics and Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy's music.
KILL/DIL is a masala film which will bring back memories of cinema of 90s. Foreseeable but worth a watch.
