Kill Dill, directed by Shaad Ali is a crime-thriller with the elements of drama and comedy attached to it. The movie is the director’s return to Bollywood after a self imposed retirement and he comes back with a back. Kill Dil is entertaining, exciting and engrossing.
The movie is based around the lives of two friends played by Ranveer Singh and Ali Zafar. Their lives take a turn when they meet their Guru who is played by Govinda who also makes a comeback to the big screen. A twist in the tale comes when Parineeti Chopra enters the lives of these men and gets involved in a romantic relationship with Ranveer Singh.

The music of the film given by Shankar Ehsaan and Loy was already a hit even before the movie released with songs like Sweeta and the title track of Kill Dil being the most popular among them. Besides that the soundtrack is on the mediocre side but still goes along well with the tone of the film.
Screenplay and Direction:
This is perhaps the only area in which the film was a little bit of a disappointment. The story has the same old twists and turns with nothing much that would surprise you as an audience. The screenplay is really sloppy at times and the dullness of the script also comes out here and there. Shaad Ali too does not impress much.
Ranveer Singh as expected carries the role with high energy giving it everything he has got. What was great to see is that Ali Zafar, who is not used to such kind of roles also does remarkably well and looks comfortable in the gun man avatar. Ranveer’s chemistry with Parineeti is also very nice, and so is Parineeti Chopra’s performance.
But the star of the show is definitely Govinda, who showcases his talent in every scene that he is in. I wish he had a bit more screen space in the film.
Verdict: Kill Dil is a definite watch as it is enjoyable, entertaining and enthralling.
Rating – 4/5!
