Dunki Review: Dunki is one of the most anticipated movies in Hindi due to Shah Rukh Khan’s recent string of successes, the release of Dunki directed by Raj Kumar Hirani and featuring Taapsee Pannu as the female lead has generated significant attention. Now that the film is out, let’s delve into our Dunki Review.
Shah Rukh Khan plays a young army man in the film and he is charming as usual. He is also shown as the old man. Performance-wise, there is nothing much for SRK to do but the star hero makes the even ordinary scenes look quite good. Taapsee Pannu gets a bigger role than SRK and she was very good. Suits her age and the Punjabi girl vibe nicely. The chemistry between SRK and Taapsee was so good to see on screen. Anil Grover and Vikram Kocchar were also okay in their roles. Boma Irani was also neat in his cameo. Vicky Kaushal was not that effective in his role.
Performances: Shah Rukh Khan delivers a charming performance portraying a young man. While he also takes on the role of an older character his acting prowess shines even in ordinary scenes. Taapsee Pannu gets a bigger role than SRK and she perfectly fits the role, delivers a commendable performance that suits her age, and captures the Punjabi girl vibe effectively. The chemistry between SRK and Taapsee adds an enjoyable dynamic. Anil Grover, Vikram Kocchar, and Boman Irani contribute decent performances but Vicky Kaushal’s impact in his role falls short.
Pritam’s music complements the story well and the background score receives a moderate rating. Production values are impressive, despite the somewhat lacking VFX from Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment. The cinematography effectively captures the village in Punjab and other locations. Editing and production design are satisfactory but the writing by Rajkumar Hirani and Abhijat Joshi doesn’t create a strong emotional impact.
Rajkumar Hirani, known for his entertaining storytelling, takes a different approach with Dunki exploring challenges at life’s crossroads and incorporating heartfelt moments. However, the film lacks Hirani’s signature humor and directorial style leaving some audiences yearning for his usual magic. Despite attempts at humor especially in English visa interviews the emotional depth falls short and the film may not resonate as strongly with audiences.
Overall, Dunki is not a proper Rajkumar Hirani film. It shines in several scenes but the overall emotional connect that one is associated with Hirani films is missing. The pace is slow and the scenes are predictable. For sure Dunki will not be a hatrick of hit after Pathaan and Jawan and will only cater to its target audience.
