Set in the hinterland, somewhere in the Delhi-NCR suburbs, it tells the story of two friends, Dev(Ranveer Singh) and Tutu(Ali Zafar) who are raised by the grizzly don, Bhaiyaji(Govinda)when he finds these two orphans lying in a garbage dump , to become contract shooters.Without much of insights, we are given glimpses of the camaraderie between these two boys and their fetish for bullets and beer.Shaad establishes the fact they have a tough exterior but soft at heart.All is well till Dev falls in love with the vivacious Disha(Parineeti Chopra) who rehabilitates criminals for a career but is oblivious of Dev's tinted past.Conscience hits Dev and he decides to abandon the world of crime, which doesn't go well with Bhaiyaji.
Should I go ahead with the plot? Well,its a pure cliché, which is churned into a cauldron of romance, ample naach-gaana,daru-shaaru and action.A lot of energy is infused by the flamboyant Ranveer who proves his mettle at comedy yet again with terrific one-liners.He is ably armed with the perky and piquant Parineeti who is effortless as far as the acting chops go , but crippled with outrageous styling and ill-sketched characterization.A series of SMS exchanges between the duo provides genuine 'LOL' moments.Equally noteworthy is the job interview sequence which lands Ranveer up in desperation to crack.Ali Zafar provides the balancing act here with his self-restrain while Govinda makes a praise-worthy comeback in a negative role.In fact, with the catchy soundtracks ( Shankar-Ehsaan- Loy)and the veteran's signature steps, it does manage to keep you in the groove.
In spite of all these positives, Kill Dill is muddled with a hackneyed script and over-simplistic treatment which doesn't give any depth to the characters and you know you are tricked only when it ends abruptly , after running a little more than two hours.If you want to know my verdict, I would label it as another Yashraj flick with an infamous 'style over substance' tag.
