KILL DIL, which is set in North India, starts off with a shaky camera which introduces the two protagonists Dev (Ranveer Singh) and Tutu (Ali Zafar), who are self-confessed ‘haraamis’. The duo reveal that their childhood was all about learning ‘M for Maaki’ and ‘B for Behenki…’ in place of ‘A for Apple, B for Ball’. It was their ‘Godfather’Bhaiyaaji (Govinda) who handpicked them up from the dustbin and not only gives them shelter, but also nurtures them to become professional killers.
Life goes on absolutely smooth for these two free spirited and trigger happy killers till the time Dev saves the ‘criminal-transformer-into-human beings’ Disha (Parineeti Chopra) in a night club. What follows after that, are a few meetings, a surprise birthday party and a handful of romantic outings… all of which are enough to pave way to a blossoming romance between the two. Despite opposition from Tutu, Dev still falls head over heels in love with Disha, and gives up all his criminal activities to lead the life of a common man. Ironically it may sound, but the fact remains that Disha changes the direction of Dev’s life forever.
And when the fifth standard fail Dev decides to become a common man, Tutu helps him to ‘acquire’ a MBA degree. What follows after that are series of interviews (worth watching), which sees Dev going in search of a job. Do not miss his audition for ‘Cobra’ brand product. This reformation and transformation of Dev shakes up Bhaiyaaji totally, who then calls up Disha (who is still unaware of Dev’s criminal background) and reveals to her about Dev’s tinted past.
What happens when Disha gets to know about Dev’s background, does Dev manage to win her over or lose her, and does the villainous Bhaiyaaji allow Dev to lead a normal life away from his pangs, is what forms the rest of the story.
Let’s face it that, KILL DIL is a film which clearly lacks the ‘YRF’ style. With this film, director Shaad Ali has terribly failed to recreate the same magic which he had earlier exhibited in films like SAATHIYA and BUNTY AUR BABLI. He falters big time with KILL DIL, which goes onto prove that a film cannot solely survive on music, performances or story plot. It has to be the right proportion of the three.
As far as the actors are concerned, what starts off as an equal balance between the two actors Ranveer and Ali, gradually becomes a Ranveer show, who makes no mistakes in his screen time. The only problem is that he seems to be looking stereotyped now. A few scenes do remind the viewer of his performance in GUNDAY, but he ensures that the viewer sticks to the premises of his character in KILL DIL. His camaraderie with Ali Zafar is admirable. Following him is the multi-talented Ali Zafar, who for some reason seems to be holding himself in a few scenes, which gets translated into a self-imposed restrained performance from him. Parineeti Chopra, on the other hand, is as effortless as ever. But again, her ‘effortlessness’ seems to be getting repeated in every film of hers. She really has to ‘reinvent’ herself soon. The jack of the pack in the film is indeed the veteran actor Govinda, who makes a comeback in Bollywood with this film. Even though he has grown old, there is nothing in him which prevents him from moving shoulder to shoulder with Ranveer, Ali and Parineeti. There are a few places wherein his character becomes too loud, which could have been duly restrained. Leaving these four actors, there is hardly any rest of the cast who contribute constructively to the film.
