Movie Review : Prem Ratan Dhan Payo

Prem is indeed back. I’d say that the marketing ‘one-liner’ was a genius. Personally, I think that served to pique the interest of even the non-Salman fans.

PRDP hit the theaters with a bang on 12th November 2015 and more than appeased the waiting fans. With Bajranji Bhaijaan followed by PRDP, I’d say that Salman is in for a good year, in fact, the best year.

Sooraj Barjatiya has delivered a movie as the director after a very long time.He has not made any effort to move from his cliché storyline but has made brilliant use of Salman. Himesh Reshamiya’s music gives it the 90’s family-movie feeling. And, voila! We have a perfect family movie.

The story starts with Prem Dilwala(Salman Khan)setting his eyes on princess Maithili and then setting out on a mission to meet her in person. Fate, the actual hero in the Bollywood movies intervenes and Prem finds himself playing the role of Maithili’s fiancé Vijay(Salman in a double role) who has been injured. There is family drama. There is hero ka Bhai (Neil Nitin Mukesh) who is bound to be the villain.

Maithili(Sonam Kapoor) is meethi-churi wrapped in the aristrocratic exterior. She is the-supposed-to-be-Indian-woman. She is sooooo perfect that she wears matching everything.

We have Salman in double role-
Yuvraj Vijay: the suave, serious, angry young prince.
Prem: A total contrast to Vijay with his caring, gentle and bubbly nature.

Why should you watch it?
*A heavy dose of royalty complete with elephants, camels, and the works.
*Lots of bling.
*Sonam Kapoor’s heavy wedding wear.
*Salman in too-good-to-be- true role which sometimes looks like Chulbul Pandey gone sophisticated.
* cheese and fluff romance.
*The best Shaadi-ka-khana we are so in love with.
* A sword-fight for the climax.

Why not watch it?

*Over the top acting

*The plot is cliché, not to mention the stereotype double role.

*Card-board palaces do not appeal visually.

But, then again who can resist a family romance. Tissues on ready people, cause it’s might make you cry.
