Dolly Ki Doli review: Strictly for Sonam Kapoor’s diehard fans
Sonam Kapoor has welcomed her New Year donning a con bride avatar with Dolly Ki Doli. Abhishek Dogra has debuted as a director with the film. The concept behind this rom-com flick is appreciated but somewhere it failed to leave an impact on the audience.
Despite of adding the touch of Mallaika Arora Khan’s item number which proves to be an x-factor for Arbaaz Khan’s film, the movie could not appeal the fans much.
What’s the story?
The film starts with the romance of Sonu Sarawat (Rajkummar Rao) and Dolly (Sonam Kapoor). They eventually get married when Sonu asks her hand. On the very first morning after the marriage, dolly sweeps all the money from Sonu’s home and runs away. Already the city has been spreading the word of Looteri Dulhan. Meanwhile, Sonu reports the matter to inspector Robin Singh, which is being played by Pulkit Samrat in the film (And we thought that the movie does not have any Salman element, heavily inspired by Dabangg actor that even the name of Pulkit’s character sounded and played similar to Salman’s).
With the entire ruckus on one side, Dolly goes on hunting for her next prey. And guess what he meets another ‘murga’, named Manoj Singh Chadda (Varun Sharma). And
Dolly being a pro at conning people, traps Manoj and marries him but once again
vanishes after looting the groom. However, Inspector Robin catches hold of Dolly by using his clever techniques.
The twist is that indeed Robin too loved Dolly once and the story starts with its confusing plot from here. Henceforth, what happens next is something you need to watch out in theatres.
As most of us know that Abishek Dogra has made his debut in direction with Dolly Ki Doli and he kicked off his career with a masala entertainer flick. But sadly he failed to engage the audience.
Film’s first half was impressive but the second half saw a down fall and could not hold the fans. After watching the film the audience will surely get to know about its loopholes.
Though the story is Sonam Kapoor centric, but if we talk about the acting then we have to give it to Rajkummar Rao, who has come out as a charmer. He has played the character of a Haryanvi boy very dedicatedly which showed on screen. Interestingly, it is not just about the language and dialogue delivery that makes his character believable, even the way he got into the character and portrayed the similar body language and attitude, it is a fun to watch.
However, Pulkit , who tried had to make act strong as to make his presence felt in the movie acted a bit over, which was not needed. May be he wanted to outstand like the Dabangg Khan, Salman but it flopped for Samrat.
Songs like “Phatte tak nachana”, “Fashion Khatam Mujhpe”, “Babaji Ka Thullu”, “Dolly Ki Doli” are fun to listen and watch on big screen. And the entire credit goes to the lethal duo of Sajid-Wajid and Sanjoy Chowdhury. The film may bore you but the music will keep you glued to the seats.
To watch or not?
You have to be a diehard fan of Sonam Kapoor to watch the film. So that you don’t feel that bad while you drain your money down the bin.
