PREM RATAN DHAN PAYO- Par entertainment nahi layo!
The team up of Sooraj Barjatya and Salman Khan takes ur expectations pretty high for this one but leads to disappointment as the movie is pretty tiring and full of boredom. Major problem being the plot in itself as its adapted from a Bengali movie of a royal dynasty story. The look being all that of a royal family with almost all forts of Rajasthan used to shoot but the storyline itself has too much of flaws taking the fact why would it be so important to announce Salman as a king in a Raj tilak in today’s time and Salmans accident scene which happens in a ‘royal’ horsecart when they have fleets of Mercedes and ipads technologies otherwise. So they filmed it same as it is from the Bengali film which was based on olden times which leads to a mismatch of logic for this flick.
This time no big families or weddings unlike other Rajshri movies but its again a family drama with a love story. Too many songs and nothing exciting by Himesh Reshammiya on music front. The lyrics try to be situational which is not needed to be explained for this simple storyline. For example ‘Aaj unse milna hai humein’ comes before Salman meets Sonam. So obvious isn’t it??
Coming to performances its completely a Salman Khan movie ( you will like him as Prem dilwala), he is majorly in the frame others being sidelined. Anupam Kher, Deepak Dobriyal and swara bhaskar have done their bit well.Sonam doesn’t seem to be serious on her role as a royal princess. Arman Kohli and Neil Nitin Mukesh pretty avoidable.
Overall an avoidable movie this diwali. Simply hyped leading to another undeserving movie joining the 100-crore club.
Verdict – 2 on 5 **
