In recent years Bollywood hasn’t churned out too many two-hero films.We have either witnessed overcrowded multistarrers or over packaged solo vehicles.London Dreams unites Salman Khan and Ajay Devgn more than a decade after the hugely popular Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.Over the years, both actors have firmly carved a niche for themselves among the industry’s top brigade.
Cast: Salman Khan, Ajay Devgan, Asin
The story revolves around two infancy friends Arjun (Ajay Devgan) and Mannu (Salman Khan).The two friends, completely diverse in their nature and living, however one thing that was common in the two was music.Arjun an ambitious guy from India, dreams to make it big in music world and lands in London forming his own band with Priya (Asin), Zoheb (Rannvijay Singh) and Wasim (Adhitya Roy Kapoor).Whereas Mannu, on the other hand is a simple guy, young at heart, no great ambitions in life, and enjoying life to the core in India.

London Dreams is certainly the best work from Vipul Shah till date. The director very well expresses the emotions of the die-hard friendship that feel you relate with real life. The movie technically is absolutely flawless and the cinematography by Sejal Shah is top notch. The background score by Salim-Sulaiman goes well with theme of the film. Surely the director has left no stone unturned for his (Dream) project.
