Good story, great songs and dances, and terrific acting but...
29 April 2004 | by (Tucson, Az) – See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed Dillagi because all the actors are in great form, the songs and dances go perfectly with the story and is very well produced, photography and locations were top notch, and the story is interesting. My problem was the drawn out climax and anti-climax which went on way too long and was somewhat predictable.

I also had a major problem with the Eros DVD which was very skimpy on the sub-titles, almost to say that, if you don't know Hindi, that's your tough luck. It appears as if subtitles were used when someone felt the viewer had a need to know because there were several extended spots where no subtitles were available at all. None of the songs had subtitles which really hurt since, when you view the Making of Dillagi, Sunny Deol kept saying how all the songs were integral to the film in that they moved the storyline along.

Despite my reservations, I waver between a 7 and 8 because the overall production was so well done, especially the great songs -- 10 -- which all had great locations and choreography.
