Story

Dolly Ki Doli story begins actress Sonam Kapoor plays Dolly, a sweet-faced con who is a serial runaway bride. She charms men, convinces them to marry her and then splits, looting them of everything before she goes. Her gang is an assorted crew of other cons, all of whom play her family during the myriad weddings in which she participates. (A doli is the palanquin that the bride sits in as she is brought in to her wedding ceremony).

Debutant director Abhishek Dogra's Dolly Ki Doli, where Sonam Kapoor plays a bride who dupes men into marriage only to rob them of their cash and valuables, hits theatres this Friday. Is the film worth the time and money?  

If there is anything that makes Dolly Ki Doli worth a watch, it is the performances. Rajkummar Rao, the first 'target' we see in the film, plays the perfect Haryanavi lad -- he is proud of his roots and forever ready to do anything for the girl he loves. Interestingly, it is not just the accent and dialogue delivery that makes his character believable: Even his body language and attitude matches.

The other actor who does an excellent job is Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub (he played Dhanush's friend in Raanjhana). He is one of the members of the gang in which Dolly (Sonam) operates. Ayyub's character, Raju, is in love with Dolly but he knows it will go nowhere because Dolly only believes in 'faking' the marriage. In the put-up family that the gang forms to dupe families into weddings, Raju is Dolly's brother! Manoj Joshi as the father, too, is impressive.

Performance :

Sonam Kapoor shows little improvement with this film. In spite of having a film that has her as the lead character, her weak dialogue delivery is disturbing. Rajkummar Rao once again proves he can fit into any character. As a typical snobbish yet foolish Haryanvi guy, he fully entertains us. Grabbing the perfect accent and even dancing full power with Malaika Arora Khan, he scores full marks for his performance.-

Varun Sharma is another delight in the film. His character as a desperate, young spoilt mama’s boy is commendable. He makes us laugh with his brilliant comic timing. Pulkit Samrat sadly disappoints in the film. It’s as if he was given a role of becoming Chulbul Pandey’s son. His over replication of Salman Khan spoils it.

Final Word

Enjoy the movie watching once for fun on the run. As long as you're not light-laugh-lactose intolerant.

    Toilet: Ek Prem Katha Movie Review

    Toilet: Ek Prem Katha starts on a slow note as it takes enough time to reveal about the behavior of the characters. The first half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been packed with hilarious entertainment which come along with the plot. Some of the songs have been forcefully injected into the plot however some of them have been shot well. On the whole, the first half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha looks decent with packed entertainment. The second half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha too has been interesting and reveals a strong social message. Some of the episodes have been dragged too much and the songs are huge barriers for the film. The film has many interesting episodes which strike hard about the problems faced by women across many villages of the country. On the whole the second half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been ok which has been balanced with good and bad episodes throughout.

    Jab Harry Met Sejal Movie Review

    Jab Harry Met Sejal has many layers and some of them have been well narrated. The entire first half has been passable but it is the slow plot and some unwanted episodes that kill the film’s flavour completely. The songs look decent and they have been shot well. The quirky comedy and the narration makes the first half of Jab Harry Met Sejal passable. The second half of the movie looks dragged and some of the episodes have been hurried which are quite crucial. Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma have been extremely impressive in their roles. The locations and the cinematography are the major highlights of the second half. The climax has been shot well and impresses the audience. On the whole, the second half of Jab Harry Met Sejal disappoints.

    Mubarakan Movie Review

    Mubarakan is completely based on comedy and is a hilarious laugh riot right from the first frame. The story has been framed well and the songs have been placed and shot well. Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor carried the film well and they are the major highlights of the movie. Their comic timing has been simply superb and the entire first half has been filled with loads of entertainment.The second half of Mubarakan too has been laced with enough entertainment however the film dips down at times. Some of the episodes look dragged and some of them have been hurried. The entire second half looks predictable and the climax has been simple, rushed. On the whole the entire second half has been ok.

    Indu Sarkar Movie Review

    Indu Sarkar has many interesting and realistic episodes and the film showcases the struggle of a woman. Each and every character has been well written and well presented. With an interesting twist, the first half convinces the audience and Madhur Bhandarkar works hard not to miss his mark. The dialouges are the major assets of the film. The second half of Indu Sarkar has been completely focussed on the struggle and Indu Sarkar may not appeal to all the sections of audience. However the gripping narration and the power packed performances lead the film completely. The pre-climax episodes heat up the film and the climax has been well presented. On the whole, Indu Sarkar has been decent but it may not appeal to all the sections of audience.

    Munna Michael Movie Review

    Munna Micheal starts on an interesting note however the film loses the grip. Most of the episodes look fake and the characters have not been written well. The songs and the performances by the lead actors have been impressive and lot of time has been wasted for the major plot to be unveiled. There is no strong purpose, but Munna shifts his base to Delhi suddenly. On the whole the first half of Munna Micheal has been below the average line and makes no impact.The second half of Munna Micheal has been completely half baked and it makes no sense. The performances by the lead actors has been completely impressive but the rest of the movie is a huge misfire. The songs have been shot well and Niddhi has been presented in a glamorous way. The second half looks confused and clumsy. The climax looks like everyone in the film along with the audience have been lost. On the whole, Munna Micheal is a complete misfire in all the available ways.
