Dilwale: Theme, Review and Rating

Dilwale was the last release on 2015 of talented director Rohit Shetty who’s given us movies like Golmaal Franchise, All The Best and Chennai Express. Rohit is back with the Bollywood super-couple this time. Of course, we are talking about Shah Rukh-Kajol. Dilwale is not to be confused with any sort of sequel or anything for 1994 Ajay Devgan movie with the same title. Rohit’s last film with Shah Rukh was Chennai Express which happened to be a big hit too.

Theme of Dilwale

The themes of Dilwale is basically these words “Dil to Sabke Paas Hota Hain, par Har Koi Dilwala Nahi Hota”. The movie has comedy, heartbreak, romance and revenge all packed into one. The movie’s story though is pretty predictable as one watches the movie.


My Review

The film lacks the point of view in many ways. Shah Rukh-Kajol Jodi in the movie must be the only reason the movie has been able to gain such huge recognition. The movie revolves around these two actors a lot. Being a Rohit Shetty movie, there are many twists and turns in the movie that can keep us on the edge of our seat. The movie, for the same reason, also has a lot of comedy it offers. Along with that, songs and location of the movie is pretty awesome. The presence of Johnny Lever in the movie is also what added the touch of comedy.


The movie should not be watched with a high expectation. The story is brilliant, do not get us wrong. But it’s pretty simply presented which makes it seem a little less than mind-blowing. Being a Rohit Shetty directed movie, car-flying actions scenes and rib-tickling comedy can be expected. The movie can be watched with family and if you have the hots for Shah Rukh-Kajol Jodi, the movie is going to be great for you.


Dilwale was simply been made as a commercial movie. Hence it can be said that the movie will surely gross a lot. Even though critically, the movie may not do good, the movie is bound to be a big financial success.


The movie deserves 3.5 stars out of 5 stars.
