Dil Bole Hadippa Review

Powered by: Chakpak.com Dil Bole Hadippa 

Dil Bole Hadippa is a movie starring Shahid Kapoor and Rani Mukherjee. I had been looking forward to watching this movie since I saw the promos (you can probably find my previous post on the blog!) and when it finally came out I just had to see it. I saw it a bit late considering it came out last Friday, but I thought I'd post my review anyway. So the movie was, as expected, a mix of She's The Man, Lagaan, and Chak De! India. There was much more in the movie than just these three movies, but these were the standout ones. The story was about a girl (Rani Mukherjee), the best cricket player in her village, who wants to play for India alongside the legendary Sachin Tendulkar as an opening batsman. The story is also about a man (Shahid Kapoor) who lives in England with his mother and is one of the best cricket players there. His father (parents are separated) in India asks him to help coach/be the captain of the cricket team for the bi-annual cricket match against Pakistan. Shahid agrees to do so and holds tryouts for the team. Rani goes to try out but is not allowed inside. She gets the idea of dressing as a man to try out from her chacha's (uncle's) drama company. So she tries out and makes the team. Shahid meets Rani the girl and falls in love with her as Rani the man works out for the team. What happens is Dil Bole Hadippa!

I thought the movie was very good. I loved it. Shahid is getting better with every movie and Rani was just superb. The way she played the character of Veer (the man version of her female role Veera) was amazing and I give her full props for that. It was difficult for me to imagine any other actress doing the things she did. Yeah this has been done before by others and they have all done well also, but the life that Rani's character had with the full Punjabi accent and her expressions was unbeatable. Shahid looked amazing and his actiing was really good too. From around Jab We Met, Shahid has become more manly as opposed to the childish boy he looked like earlier. I really liked his character in Dil Bole Hadippa.

The final match was very Lagaan style. It was very gripping and dramatic. Some calls were the same as in Lagaan, but it was still fun to watch. The goood thing about this was that after he found out that Veer was Veera, he didn't spend an hour debating over her character and whether or not he loves her.

Anupam Kher played Shahid's father and he is always a pleasure to watch. Dalip Tahil played the Pakistani team coach and was also awesome as usual. It was a pleasant surprise to see Poonam Dhillon again. I have seen a lot of her movies from the 80s and she is awesome. It was like seeing Neetu Singh in Love Aaj Kal, which was the best part of the movie! I won't rag Love Aaj Kal too much here, but yeah...Poonam Dhillon played Shahid's mom, and although the role was very small, I appreciated her being there. Rakhi Sawant was also in the movie. Rakhi Sawant has a pretty bad reputation and her roles often require her to wear skimpy clothes. In this movie, the Bhangra bistar song was the only time where her blouse was small, but that's what everyone wears nowadays anyways, so it wasn't out of the ordinary. her role was also very small. Sherlyn Chopra played the role of Soniya, an ex-Miss Chandigarh who turned into a modern girl after modelling in London. She had an interest in Shahid, but he didn't really return the affection.

So the movie overall was very entertaining. There was a lot of humor and I was cracking up watching it. I love that scene with the black bhains log in the truck that they show in the promos. Also, there was a scene where they combine Heer Ranjha, DDLJ, Hum Aapke Hain Kaun...!, and a line from Maine Pyar Kiya. That scene was super entertaining, but it's possible I enjoyed it just because I knew which movies they were alluding to. The songs in the movie were pretty good. I didn't forward any because either the song was nice or Shahid's dancing in it was nice.

Overall, I think the movie is worth watching. It is a total entertainer and I personally enjoyed it very much!
