Its like a re-edit done from the available rushes to somehow make a complete film.
2 June 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A completely worn-out, seen before and over-used concept can become watchable only if it has something fresh to say in its execution breaking some previous norms. But the latest action thriller DISHKIYAOON directed by Sanamjit Singh Talwar (made on the same old backdrop of underworld dons), doesn't even have one single scene to impress you in any way.

Moreover the film actually looks like one of those old, stalled projects which has been finally presented as a complete film after re-editing all its available rushes somehow, as the producer's last resort. And this conclusion can easily be drawn by looking at the film's sloppy editing and its very first scene which right away introduces both Sunny Deol and Harman Baweja talking to each other in a quite lazy and uninspiring manner, simply ruining the excitement built by its interesting promos.

So honestly there is nothing to be written as a detailed review here. But yes, there still remain one unique manner in which the film can serve as something highly useful for all the professional institutes teaching film-making (with reference to only Hindi films).

Explaining it further, DISHKIYAOON certainly can be considered as one project which can perfectly be used to teach what is meant by 'Wrong Casting' or 'Miscasting' in a film to the enthusiastic students of cinema, undoubtedly. And the reason for this is that except Prashant Narayan & Aditya Pancholi playing their usual mannerisms, not even a single lead actor looks like the role he is playing and one can notice this big mistake in the film's opening sequence itself quite clearly. For instance, Sunny Deol (in his only few minutes appearance) turns out to be a complete misfit speaking in a Hariyanvi tone, Harman Baweja pretty unconvincingly plays a tapori having the persona of a rich brat, Anand Tiwari (trying hard) reminds you of a comic character ready to crack a joke every time he comes on the screen and Sumit Nijhawan as the head gangster seems to be a last moment change after a refusal by any other deserving candidate.

In short, what can you expect from a movie which has all its four lead actors, misfit for their respective roles and the director is more interested in only style and less content, talking about nothing new. So I walked out of the theater even before it ended properly and no I didn't stay for any sizzling act of Shilpa Shetty Kundra played along the end credits.
