Live Review of Punjabi Film Dildariyaan, starring Jassi Gill, Sagarika Ghatge. Directed by Pankaj Batra.
Welcome to the Live Review of Punjabi Film Dildariyaan. We are visiting a multiplex in Chandigarh for an evening show of the movie.
As far as I can remember its the same Audi where I saw Rangeelay, Zanjeer, Jatt Airways and Faraar.
And we all know the fate of those films at the box office. Wishing its not the same for this Pankaj Batra film.
It’s an evening show on the first day, still there are 8 people in the Audi including yours truly.
As far as the buzz for the film goes, the makers lost all the steam the day they decided to push the film ahead by 3 weeks.
For some so called technical reasons best know to them.
8/352 is the occupancy and the trailers have begun.The rate is about 2.3% if my Math is correct.
9 more people and now we are 17 here. To suffer? Whatever it may be, the rate goes up to 5 percent now. We’ll tell you the next and final occupancy at the half time.
And now we are all set to watch Jassi Gill’s fourth film. Its U certified and has a running time of 116 minutes.
It’s a DP Battalion Entertainment and Yuvika Films presentation.
His name is now Jassie Gill as per the credits.
Guggu Gill plays Ajmer Singh Sidhu from Rahimgarh. And he’s got a somewhat dashing entry.
Sagarika Ghatge gets to match fire with fire on an equal stage with Guggu Gill.
She plays Pali, daughter of Guggu Gill.
Her voice is dubbed and doesn’t suit her face.
Binnu Dhillon is the conductor and gets his DDLJ moment on screen.
Enters Jassi Gill. Same old hairstyle and stuff.
There’s a brief Chamkila moment aned the audience welcomes it with hooting.
There’s a dialogue – Jutti na lei laa main Fazilka di. So my hometown gets a mention in films. It doesn’t happen usually.
15 minutes into the film and its a weak start considering Pankaj Batra last made Goreyaan Nu Daffa Karo.
I can’t understand something here. Sagarika Ghatge is a misfit in this character. If the requirement was of a Desi Girl who can speak Punjabi of Malwa belth then why get her from Bombay and get her voice dubbed in such a way that it doesn’t match her face and personality.
I mean she pronounces IELTS as Aai Let. Purpose as Purpoj and many more.
It’s great to see Karamjeet Anmol after long. He looks in good touch and has some jokes.
Like I’m with the CM and we’re decident wether to gie water to Haryana or not.
Film is gathering some momentum now. Some good and fresh jokes.
Binnu Dhillon is here again. Now in the IELTS class.
He refers to IELTS Bands as Vaaje. Says kinne ku Vaaje a jaan ge tere?
This one gathering momentum with each passing scene after a very weak start.
Songs when they are not good are considered as barriers especially when the film has just started to build the interest of the audience.
Sagarika is looking pretty in every scene. Her costumes, the Punjabi suits portray her as a perfect mutiyaar from Bathinda. But the only problem is her voice. Has that been better, it would’ve been a great debut.
Karamjit Anmol plays Pardhan and is using Elante Mall and Buggi in his jokes in every scene.
Jassie Gill’s other friend is called Scootery. He’s the same guy who played Guggu Gill’s son in RSVP.
Jassie Gill plays the character of Parwaan Gill in the film.
It’s time for some duet action. Kaur B and Jassi Gill’s song Ghagre Di Lau is here.
Surprise! Surprise! Its interval time and guess who’s there in the film?
Well we won’t reveal it. But for a hint – He’s Jassie Gill’s best friend and another singer.
So far second half has been going smoothly. It’s not as funny as the first half but watchable.
Looks like the film is going to exceed our expectations. Frankly we didn’t had any after watching this one, looks like a watchable film.
The film is heading towards its climax and the heoine is falling for our hero Jassie Gill.
Considering Pankaj Batra made GNDK, a lot was expected out of this flick. But after seeing the trailer we felt there was nothing much new in this one worth waiting.
Also the film got delayed by 3 weeks, which somehow lessened the buzz for this one due to which the opening numbers should be on the lower side.
After watching the film, we feel that it is enjoyable and a one time watch. Just bear for the 1st 10-15 minutes and you start to enjoy the jokes just because they are fresh ones.
Overall, Dildariyaan is neat & clean film which can be enjoyed by all members of the family together.
We rate the film as follows:
Acting: 3/5, Direction: 3.5/5, Script:1.5/5, Music: 2/5. Overall 2.5/5.
