One of the much hyped movies of this year, `Kill Dil` has released today. It managed to create a buzz in the virtual world right from the start because of the ensemble cast that it boasts of. Also, as `Kill Dil` marks the comeback of Govinda after a long hiatus, I had high hopes when I went for the movie. Directed by Shaad Ali and produced under the banner of Yash Raj Films `Kill Dil` stars Ranveer Singh, Parineeti Chopra, Ali Zafar and Govinda as the leads. So, Let’s see how it turns out to be.
The story of Kill Dil revolves around the lives of Dev (Ranveer Singh) and Tutu (Ali Zafar), who are childhood best friends. Nurtured under the wings of Bhaiyyaji (Govinda) who finds the two in a garbage bin, they grow up to become serial killers under his guidance. They kill to earn their bread and can even die for one another - such is their friendship.
Life was fine and easy going for the two chums until Disha (Parineeti Chopra) enters, who is an upmarket social worker. While Dev starts falling for Disha, Disha too melts under the aura of a charming smile and funny, Baiyaji does not like it and declines his relationship.
Miss goody-two-shoes sings songs and parties with the `Dev-il` and gradually romance fills in their hearts. Disha plays a reformer in the movie who gives the criminal Dev a new lease of life. While Dev's best friend Tutu continues to save him from the wrath of Bhaiyyaji, Dev decides to reform himself for the sake of love, ignoring the danger that lies on his way. Despite being a cold-blooded murderer, he has the heart of a child.
Following this what develops in the story builds up both suspense and interest. The twist continues until the climax. Will Dev give up his love for Bhaiyaji or his life as a goon for Disha ? That forms the rest of the story…
Inspired a tad bit from the Hollywood hit Kill Bill series, the characters in Kill Dil too are quite fashion driven. The director, Shaad Ali makes sure to make their actors look their best in those leather jackets and funky shades. Ranveer Singh, as usual vividly knows when and how to make his presence count. The actor is perfect in every scene and his quandary in the film makes you connect to his character easily. Parineeti again is a wonder. The actress plays her part well and her chemistry with Ranveer is something to watch out for.
Ali, being stuck between such immense talents, tries his extreme hard to be noticed. He has sure given his best as a threatening character. Speaking of the legend himself, Govinda is back and how. The actor is amazing portraying an antagonist and one cannot keep their eyes off him. The eight minute monologue that Ranveer and Govinda indulge is one of the best parts of the film.
How much ever Shaad makes his characters look good, he did not give much thought on revolution of them. Neither one character in the movie is explained well, or has a meaningful background. The other worst thing about the film is its story. Not only is it melodramatic, but also left incomplete.
Many scenes in the film are predictable and the climax is nothing in coordination to the film’s story. Shaad clearly had lost interest till the climax that he has wrapped up as badly as he can.
The songs of the movie are no doubt good, but their placement is weird. The first part of the movie has so many songs that they act as a hindrance. The dialogues too are ok in a few parts. The humour does not make sense at all. The movie had so much scope, but the director couldn’t do anything about it.
Cinematography by Avik Mukhopadhayay is seriously a job well done. He has projected the film in such a way that everything including the drama and the sequences appear fresh and compelling. Editing by Ritesh Soni is crisp and precise. He has edited the scenes quite interestingly and to the point without wasting any time whatsoever.
