Fun comedy, great performance, & interesting theme
Dil Bole Hadippa is a wonderful, light-hearted, escapist comedy! Most obvious and notable is Rani's performance--a free-spirited girl who can't be stopped from chasing her dreams. Her comic timing is brilliant, and her girl-next-door look suited the role just fine. Shahid Kapoor, the new big star still getting praises for his work in Kaminey, also is quite good. Rati Agnihotri is marvelous.
A few minor parts are a bit filmi/too idealistic such as the over-friendly intermingling of the Indian and Pakistani villagers before and after the match (wish I'm wrong). The main concept/theme of the movie is quite revolutionary and may be difficult to digest. I certainly had never thought of it before. In sports, why are there separate teams for men and women? Shouldn't the goal be to have the best players?...regardless of gender? Before watching this movie, I used to think that, on average, a guy is more athletically capable than a girl. That's why there are separate teams to keep the competition level. Now I see that it is unfair to put a girl to an inferior level or standard just because she is a girl. Is our society too male-dominated for the male ego to accept that a woman can do better than or even as good as a man in something traditionally associated with males?
