Few thrills here

Few thrills here

Kill/Dil
Hindi (U/A) ¬¬
Cast: Ranveer Singh, Ali Zafar, Parineeti Chopra, Govinda
Director: Shaad Ali

Govinda snarls, dances and snarls some more. In between, the mafia don manages to crack a few jokes.

His boys — Ranveer Singh and Ali Zafar whom he had rescued as infants from a garbage bin — have grown into sharp shooters, firing from atop trains, bikes, cliffs, balconies and all other precarious perches.

All goes bloody well till Ranveer meets the spirited Parineeti Chopra (who manages to stay afloat despite being let down by her wardrobe).

The two make use of every dance floor and swimming pool in sight. Miss Chopra, by the way, has found her calling in reforming and rehabilitating criminals.

All this while, Ali Zafar plays the “aloof” game, sending piercing looks in all directions. Sad, they don’t crack the monotony of the Yashraj pulp that he is caught in.

Ranveer, after emptying a truckload of bullets, realises that he is bored of “burai”. So he buries his gun and goes job-hunting with a fake MBA.

He is soon employed by a life insurance firm where he sells policies like hot cakes and is left with enough free time to dance to three more songs with Parineeti.

Ranveer and Ali Zafar share a wonderful camaraderie, but their bromance is cut short by the former’s “romance shomance” with Parineeti.

Govinda looks mean, but there isn’t much meat to his character.

Kill/Dil spills a lot of blood, but the thrills are few and far between.
