Kill Dil is about Dev (Ranveer Singh) and Tuttu (Ali Zafar) who are Bhaiyyaji’s (Govinda) proteges. Picked up from a roadside dustbin, they grow up to be hit men who live by Bhaiyyaji’s rules and worship the ground he walks, until Dev meets Disha (Parineeti Chopra) who changes the direction of his life.
Disha, a self made girl who allegedly reforms criminals quickly, falls in love with Dev and then we rush into the climax of the film that looks very abrupt. The end is very predictable and by the end of if you would want to kill youself.
Ali Zafar narrates their story in front of a handy-cam. Dressed in leather jackets and cowboy hats, the men chat up the camera and talk about their past and the sacrifices they’ve had to make. This just goes on and on.
There is a lot of 80’s referrence in Kill Dil. Even as the credits roll in the beginning, the characters and the back story of Dev and Tutu are established. We see Govinda literally picking the two orphans from the gutter, kids burying their books because they are bored of goodness and both Dev and Tuttu engaging in several gunfights.
It’s really funny to see two similar films, Gunday and Kill Dil, both being produced by Yash Raj Films where Arjun Kapoor has been replaced by Ali Zafar and Priyanka Chopra by Parineeti Chopra. The only addition to Kill Dil is Govinda inspite being a bad man who just keeps dancing.
What’s shocking is that it took seven years for Shaad Ali to come back with Kill Dill after Jhoom Barabar Jhoom.
Go watch Happy New Year once again and avoid getting killed with Kill Dil.
It's mismatched, it's patchy and it's just all over the place; well we are talking about Shaad Ali's Kill Dil which looks like a poor copy of Yash Raj...1.0
