Dolly Ki Doli- Movie Review

Roochster

Dolly ki Doli movie posterI never really looked at Sonam Kapoor as a good actress especially after seeing all her previous films. Dolly Ki Doli, however was something else. I can say I really enjoyed myself throughout the length of the film. Here’s my review.

Plot in short– Dolly (Sonam Kapoor) is a runaway bride. She and her fake family get her married, steal money and jewellery on the first night of her wedding from the house and run away leaving the dulha and his family in shock and embarrassment. Will Dolly ever be caught? Does she not want to really settle down?

The Good– I have to say that this film is a joy ride. It is 1 hour 40 minutes of drama and fun. Abhishek Dogra, the director has done a brilliant job in making a film that has no dull moments at all. The screenplay has the biggest role in this. It is fast paced and well written. Every actor has performed to the best of their ability. Sonam Kapoor has shown signs of improvement and her accent is less snobbish. Her make up and hair has also drastically improved as compared to the rest of her films. Rajkummar Rao delivers a realistic performance. I remember seeing Varun Sharma in Fukrey and thought he was superb! Well, I repeat. He is superb! Bang on comic timing, natural and a lot of fun to watch on screen. I don’t think anyone could have done this role better than him. For me, he stole the show in Dolly ki Doli and I would want to watch the film again mostly because of him. The other supporting actors- Archana Puran Singh, Manoj Joshi, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub and the others also make the film a treat to watch. Pulkit Samrat looks like a cake but unfortunately didn’t have much acting scope. He was way better in Fukrey. The old actress who plays the fake dadi was also given equal importance with just one dialogue in the film- “Beti de di, sab kuchh de diya.” That was a real LOL scene.

The Not-so-good– While there are so many good things about the film, I can barely point out the bad because I enjoyed the film so much. So Pulkit Samrat is an absolute hotty, he doesn’t do justice to the role. Also, I felt that the climax of the film was a tad bit disappointing. It just didn’t strike a chord. The music too is below the mark.

Verdict– Overall, Dolly Ki Doli is a fun film that deserves a watch. Jaake dekho!

Rating– 3.5/5
