Storyline

Slender, barely 5'2", assisting a dance troupe, Veera Kaur's dream is to represent the 9-time losing Indian Tigers cricket team. The team, led by Choudhary Vikramjeet Singh, has never won the Aman Cup against their rivals, Pakistan Champs, led by Pathan Liqayat Ali Khan. She dons the guise of a turbaned Sikh, complete with beard and mustache, and calls herself Veer Pratap Singh. In this way she manages to convince the new, rather arrogant and brash Team Captain, Rohan Singh - a British County Cricket all-rounder, and the son of Vikramjeet - to include her in this team. Things all appear to be going well until accusations are leveled against her for attempting to sexually molest Rohan's leggy girlfriend - none other than Miss Chandigarh 2008, Soniya Saluja - which may well blow Veera's cover and prevent her from ever playing for any Indian Cricket team.

Trivia

The film was originally to be called simply "Hadippa," but Sanjay Leela Bhansali had already bought the rights to use the title in his own film and wasn't willing to give it up, so it was announced that the movie title would be "Dil Bole Hadippa." See more »

Quotes

Veera Kaur: [to herself] There is only one God. His name is the truth. He is the Creator. He is without fear. He is without hatred. He never dies. He is beyond births and deaths. He is self-illuminated. He is realized through the grace of the True Guru. Repeat his name. He was True in the primal beginning. He has always been True. He is also True now.

Awful
21 September 2009 | by (China) – See all my reviews

I was surprised to find positive reviews of Dil Bole Hadippa here as I always refer to IMDb for unbiased reviews. So now that people liked DBH, I realize that if I didn't like this movie and rather found it pathetic, probably something wrong with me but still posting my own reasons. To me, it was extremely melodramatic, loud and shallow stuff for this age. I cannot tolerate the century old "Wrong English" comedy any more. It is too much clichéd. Their cricket was one of the most irritating parts of the movie. I mean in cricket, it doesn't have to be a six, a four or a clean bold on every ball. And please YRF enough of conning your audience with the same Punjab di Lassi or Sarson ke Khet.And how all the bindaas girls end up changing Shahid's thoughts and perceptions of life like Geet of Jab We Met and Veera of DBH was also not digestible. The worst part was DDLJ and HAHK drama. I walked away for a few minutes. Nothing was new the same old modern girl vs Gaun ki gori and bindaas vs polished, desh vs pardes. Not a single dialogue made me laugh or even smile for a moment. Rani is a very talented actress. She should choose intelligent multiplex movies. My Vote: 1 Comment: Awful
