Less pensive and more fun, that's an apt description for the film Dolly Ki Doli. This film which is mere 100 minute long is breezy and an absolute entertainer.
The story of the film that revolves around a con bride although sounds repetitive yet it is first in Hindi cinema.Dolly is a con girl with a fake family. Dolly and her family dupe potential grooms who are desperate, rich and uncouth. They loot them bankrupt and run away. Closer to reality the film ably turns the real life incident into hilarity.
While the first half of the film is total entertainment the second half dilutes in emotions.Somewhere in the second half the film looses the pace and then speeds up again. With the unconventional climax the film amuses the audience. And with the street smart acting the stars steal our hearts away. Be it Sonam Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, Varun Sharma or Pulkit Samrat, each one adds a bit of tanginess to the entire film. Speaking of Sonam Kapoor, she is a natural and while Pulkit acts the brawny young cop by completely emulating Dabangg Salman, Rajkummar Rao is a grouchy love-struck Jatt. When it comes to performances one needs to make a special mention of Varun Sharma who is thoroughly quirky as much as funny throughout the film.
The film may be clichéd here and there but has funny uncanny moments that add a zing to it. One cannot say that the film is tightly scripted for it does tend to loosen up in some spaces however; it poses competent performances and well-drafted storyline. Abhishek Dogra too comes across as a proficient and promising director despite this being his debut venture.
The concept of the film may not be unique but it is a fun ride one should definitely hop on. If you wish to unwind yourself then this film has clever turn of events that are sure to rejuvenate you. The film is spunky, funky, refreshing and an out-and-out entertainer that’d make a perfect weekend watch.
