Glorious Days of Yashraj Films
12 September 2009 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

One of the last movies coming from the Yashraj banner where quality stood sacrosanct. Every department exhibits the Yash Raj signature stamp over it. As usual Yash Raj takes a single theme and puts his heart and soul into it ensuring the audience feels and connects. With Dil Toh Paagal Hain he attempts to convey "Someone..... Somewhere..... is made for you" and it comes across poetically beautiful.

¤ SRK:: He hams to his very best, but guess what? It goes extremely well with the character of Rahul. Rightfully, he is very soul of DTPH.

¤ Madhuri Dixit:: The first-choice of "Darr" gets opportunity to work with Yashraj. She was spot-on in the character. And was absolutely gorgeous (special credits the costumes/ wardrobe department).

¤ Karishma:: Fantastic performance. Call it ill-fate or whatever, post- Yash raj practically every top-actress begins her journey towards exit.

¤ Akshay Kumar:: His cameo was supposed to be the surprise element which later on many copied. He was extremely raw in terms of performance but hey, he got the best song (the title song).

¤ Aruna Irani:: Another important cameo which was effectively incorporated into the storyline as an important cog-in-the-wheel. And she delivered the goods to the utmost satisfaction.

Music is one of the strong-points of DTPH. A couple of listens and they linger on for years to come. When it comes to Yashraj the lyrics from Anand Bakshi are a notch above the his usual. Playback from Lata was at its angelic best (and perhaps the last!). Costumes/ wardrobe were aesthetically beautiful. Manmohan Singh carries his signature style when it comes to DOP. Choreography was different from the Shiamak Davar group. Special mention is deserved for the story/ screenplay & dialogues.

Finally the best part was the opening credits which truly communicates the entire message of the movie - simply awesome. Hats off Yash-ji!
