Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji


Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji, the mind behind the hard-hitting and realistic cinema like ‘Chandni Bar’, ‘Page 3’ and ‘Fashion’ this time tried his hand in a comedy genres starring , Emraan Hashmi and Omi Vaidya, Shruti Hasan, Shraddha Das and Shazahn Padamsee in the pivotal role. ‘Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji’ basically speaks about theses three men, their life-style and their love woman.

Paresh Rawal introduces the three men via voice over. Naren Ahuja () is a bank officer. Playboy Abhay Suri (Emraan Hashmi) and shayar Milind Kelkar (Omi Vaidya) are his tenants. Naren and his wife (Rituparna Sengupta) married for the last seven years but unable to resolve their differences, they headed for splitville. Meanwhile, Naren falls for a beautiful 20 years old June Pinto (Shazahn Padamsee), a trainee in his bank.

Abhay is a gym instructor. He always tries to come closer to married and unmarried women but poor Abhay, he fails every time. He even losses his job for teasing a wife of an underworld don from Dubai. While Milind works in a matrimonial site, ‘zhatpatshaadi.com’ but till date could not able to find a suitable match for himself. He writes painful shayaris. He is smitten by radio jockey Gungun Sarka (Shraddha Das) who just uses him to solve her tensions. The film moves forward with different happenings of the three men and what consequences they face.

The film is comic but lacks humorous element. It can’t hold the interest of the audience for a long time. Pritam's music is very disappointing. Ravi Walia's cinematography is impressive. Sanjay Chhel's dialogues are inconsistently good.  

Speaking about performances, was impressive. If he portrays serious roles well then he is equally good in comic character. We have seen Emraan Hashmi in the same role of casanova number of times and hence makes no differences. Omi Vaidya’s dialogue delivery was same as Chatur of ‘3 Idiots’ and he was quite impressive.

Shraddha Das is polite. Shazahn Padamsee acts well and stuck to her character. Tisca Chopra delivers a terrific performance. did not act well.

In the nutshell, as a comic director fails to impress his audience. He shines as a realistic cinema but requires some more knowledge in comic category.
