Dil Tainu Karda Ae Pyar - Movie Review by Punjab Gold
"For those, who feel they have had enough of romantic comedies and want to see a sentimental love story in a Punjabi movie, Dil Tainu Karda Ae Pyar is the answer for them. What to do, how to do, is it right or wrong, are some of the common problems which can be seen in most real life love stories. But how many of them take the right decision in such situations, it’s beyond one’s understanding. If one believes in learning lessons from fictions or movies, then Dil Tainu Karda Ae Pyar can certainly help some love birds to fly high in the celestial sky of love.
In the currently going trend, romantic comedies or just comedy movies are the most preferred genres in the Punjabi movies industry. But the team of DIl Tainu Karda Ae Pyar has been bold enough to throw a sentimental love triangle in the market and their stake has fallen direct. It has been a very well compiled love story with few low count flaws. Some sequences look very dramatic and are gratuitously created which takes something out of the movie’s integrity. But still the movie has a lot more to admire, than to criticise.
A boy who has been cheated in love, want to run away from everything, a girl upset with her boyfriend, another boy who suddenly falls in love, the plot shows these three different stories. Baljeet (Gulzar Chahal), after getting cheated in love, wants to leave everything and fly to abroad but meets Nikki (Neetu Singh) at the airport, who looks upset in her love life and dramatically Baljeet misses his flight to London and has to stay back in Punjab and then he decides to help her for sorting out her problems. But Nikky, who has left her boyfriend in Canada, is here in Punjab to get married with Daljit (Rohit Khurana), who is a policeman by profession and falls in first sight love with Nikky. The love triangle takes many turns and the strength of making right decision, being in love, wins at the end.
As the title speaks itself, Dil Tainu Karda Ae Pyar is a complete love story with patches of comedy and action. It has been a well defined and organized love triangle, especially attractive for youngsters. The first part does lack some interest at times and some sequences seem to be unnecessarily created but exhilaration builds up magnificently in the second part, leading to an interesting love point. Such situations have been implemented number of times in Bollywood movies but it’s good to see that it has been tried in a Punjabi movie this time and quite successfully too.
Gulzar Chahal, who has already acted in couple of movies as a second fiddle, has got a chance to work as main lead in the movie and it has to be said that he has justified his appearance as the main lead. Neetu Singh, who is making her debut with Dil Tainu Karda Ae Pyar, has done decent enough job. Another debutant, Rohit Khurana, who achieved his identity with a daily soap serial Uttran, has been terrific with his expressions and dialog delivery. Gurpreet Ghuggi is fanatic with his comedy role as always, playing a role of taxi driver. Kanwaljit Singh and B.N. Sharma don’t have much to do in the movie but still they are experienced enough to leave their markings. Anshu Sawhney comes up as a little dynamite in the movie as Ghuggi’s wife. All the other supporting characters have done decent job according to their presence in the movie.
Ajay K. Pannalal, the director of the movie has tried a distinguished love story by putting so many extra efforts in it. The directorial job is never easy in such complicated stories but he has managed the movie well enough. Well the story cannot be called a unique one but still for Punjabi industry, it differs this movie from current and past trends. So Dheeraj Rattan has proved many a times before that he has something special in penning down the love stories.
Jaidev Kumar, the highly respected name in the Punjabi music industry, has produced the music and background score in the movie. So like most times, music catches the attraction and sounds pleasing. Tracks like DIl Tainu Karda Ae Pyar by Feroz Khan, Peeni Ae by Babbu Maan and Sat Sri Akal by Harbhajan Maan, are amazing.
All in all, Dil Tainu Karda Ae Pyar is a complete love story surrounded with confusions and emotions. You may have witnessed these things many a times before, but a different presentation can make it look unique every time. That’s exactly what the team of Dil Tainu Karda Ae Pyar has proved.
From punjabgold.com, Dil Tainu Karda Ae Pyar gets 3.5/5
Review by – Sarvjit Khera" Dil Tainu Karda Ae Pyar - Movie Review by Punjabi Mania
"DTKAP tells the story of a young Jatt boy, Baljeet (Gulzar Chahal) who has been cheated in love, A girl, Nikki (Neetu) who has left her Boyfriend behind as he cheated on her and A Dashing Cop, Daljeet (Rohit K.) who is about to get married to Nikki. Baljeet meets Nikki at the airport. Her love life has been a MESS and due to a situation Baljeet misses his flight and decides to help Nikki in her love life. But Nikki, who has left her boyfriend back in Canada, arrives in Punjab to get married and enters Daljeet, the guy whom Nikki is about to get married. The love triangle takes many turns and the strength of making right decision, being in love, wins at the end.
Dheeraj Rattan, I always refer to him as ‘The man with a BLOCKBUSTER Pen’ and he truly deserves that after being the writer for various blockbusters like Jatt & Juliet, Dharti, Mel Karade Rabba and Jihne Mera Dil Lutiya. Coming back to DTKAP, frankly the story doesn’t go anywhere near to any of the previously mentioned films from Rattan. First things first, the story line is absolutely kiddish and weak. It doesn’t offer anything new for the viewers other than the lead actors. Also the film lacks comedy, which is an ‘Essential’ flavour in a Punjabi film if the makers want it to be anywhere near to be successful.
The screenplay is slow and amateurish. It doesn’t quite look as pleasing as one would have expected. Also a few sequences and the song towards the final moments (Party song) seems to be a bit dragging and looks like they have been inserted forcefully. Even the dialogues don’t have anything new to offer.
Gulzar Chahal last seen in Yaara O Dildaara has grown up as an actor under the guidance of Harbhajan Maan. He is a man to watch out for the future. Debutante Neetu Singh seen in a few music videos previously didn’t impress at all with her acting. She lacks the flare which a Punjabi actress possesses be it a Neeru, Kulraj or Surveen. She needs to work harder if she is here to stay for a long innings.
Another Debutante Rohit Khurana was a treat to watch. Be it his role as a Cop or a romantic lover, he was fantastic as both. Others like Gurpreet Ghuggi, Kanwaljit Singh and B N Sharma were just about all right. Weren’t quite as impressive as they have been in the past.
Ajay’s debut as a director should be a forgettable experience for him. He didn’t quite get the scheme of things falling in his way. No doubt that he has tried his best to make a good film but sometimes things don’t go as supposed. He has great chances for improvements in future.
Music by Jaidev was strictly average. Babbu Maan’s track and Mahi Mahi by Feroz Khan were the only highlights from the album. Music has been an essential part in Punjabi films alongside comedy but here the flare was missing in possibly both the departments.
DTKAP is strictly an average affair. Debutante Rohit and Gulzar shine as actors and have a long way to go in the Industry but on the whole this film is a major disappointment."
