Dilwale - Movie Reviews

Even if you are not a Rohit Shetty fan, watch this for the chemistry between SRK and Kajol which refuses to simmer down even after all these years
So on overall basis ‘Dilwale’ is not a great watch in comparison to the past work of Shahrukh Khan-Kajol, nor does it have the high entertainment value of a Rohit Shetty film
Cine Markets
Even if it does, you have to ask — why are the most powerful names in the business content with doling out recycled mediocrity
Hindustan Times
On the whole, DILWALE is akin to a mouthwatering meal that satiates the craving of those who relish masalathons, besides being an absolute treat for SRK-Kajol fans. An unadulterated crowd-pleaser, DILWALE delivers what you expect from a Rohit Shetty film: King-sized entertainment. Go for it!
Bollywood Hungama
Masala movie with oodles of SRK-Kajol magic
Film Fare
Watch it for Kajol and, to a lesser extent, for SRK. The rest of the actors on this vehicle, barring Varun Sharma on an occasion or two, are mere passengers.
Despite his heart in the right place, Rohit Shetty’s ode to one of Bollywood’s most loved couple fails to recreate their magic

We expect insignificant froth from the director, but this particular can of Rohit Shetty has been lying open too long.''The contents are not merely un-fizzy but, unforgivably, flat

If you’re a Shah Rukh fan, we won’t even bother with a reason. But even if you aren’t, watch it for the magic the hit jodi (pardon the corny cliché) creates. The story is a little filmy, agreed. But the movie pretty much makes up for it in every other vertical. Watch it to remind yourselves that DDLJ,K3G and K2H2 are not just random assemblages of letters. They are a huge part of the history of Bollywood romances. This movie has everything a commercial entertainer must have, and then some more. Having said that, the film manages to give a lot of clichés a miss, which is quite a pleasant surprise. We recommend: do not miss this one!

Film lovers have no expectations of Shetty, but surely fans expect more from this director of blockbusters?
Scoop Whoop
The Cast Looks Great But the Movie is Unoriginal
iDiva
Watch Dilwale if you want to relive the SRK-Kajol chemistry or for laugh out moments- for you can be sure that Gauri (producer) and SRK will be laughing all the way to the bank.
Khaleej Times
Rohit Shetty has designed some stunt sequences, which he never did it previously. Those sequences take the movie to the next level. His directional skills are absolutely excellent.

Gone are the days when local goons bullied Indians in central Europe. We now have our own mafia bosses in that part of the world.

But Dilwale never lives up to the hype it had created around itself.

Rohit Shetty films have never been high on story or performances. It is the way he packs solid entertainment in all his films and gives the family audience their full money’s worth.

Deccan Chronicle
SRK's money dialogue, "Aaj ke baad apna chehra mat dikhana, jaan le longa," seems like a threat for audiences willing to attempt a second watch.
Mumbai Mirror
Dilwale is flawed, but it's right for those who believe that love does conquer it all, actually.
DNA India
Overall, Rohit Shetty has given us a very engaging and commercial mix of romance, comedy, songs and action through of Dilwale. Definitely a must watch for SRK and Kajol fans

The age-old but hot chemistry between SRK and Kajol remains effective to this day and that is why you must watch Dilwale!

Rohit Shetty's trump card, the Shah Rukh-Kajol jodi, falls flat
First Post
The only purpose of “Dilwale” is to chant every known Bollywood mantra for a successful film and cash in on its celebrated lead actors. In that aim, the film is hugely successful.
Reuters India
Varun overdoes it. SRK is hemmed in, Kajol tries too hard. Pankaj Tripathi, now what is an actor like that doing there? Only one having a good time is Sanjay Mishra.

Overall, the script of Dilwale seems to have been written after watching several family dramas and rom-coms put together.

On a whole, 'Dilwale' is just another masala entertainer, which only expects you to enjoy and not think much. Giving it a shot wouldn't harm anyone.
