Genre: Family Drama

Star: 3 out of 5 star

Box Office King Salman Khan is again back with another gift to his fans as ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo‘, this time in Diwali. The popular director-actor duo of Salman Khan and Sooraj Barjatya is back after 16 years, so this film completely dedicated to this Jodi. Although, the story is not too strong as Rajshri’s earlier films, but the charismatic magic of Salman is enough to recoup these deficiencies and this will be surely another big gainer at the box office.

Salman and Sonam in ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’

‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ is the story of a dynasty where there is a Yuvraj Vijay (Salman) who has some enemies. His brother is also his enemy, his Sisters and lover both upset from him. Everything is messed up until an accident happened. After that a common man ‘Prem’ has taken the place of the Yuvraj Vijay and he makes everything perfect.

If we talk about the story, there is not something new or out of the box type script as expected from Sooraj Barjatya’s film and none of the character looks promising in their respective roles. Sooraj is known for his trend setting films like ‘Maine Pyar Kia’ (1989) and ‘Hum Apke Hain Kon’ (1994) but he has to work hard on the stories to match with the current time. There is always a family match in every Rajshri’s film and this time it is football.

About the performances, everyone in the film tried to splash extra simplicity which is the expected from a Sooraj Barjatya’s film. Salman has done justice in his dual performances and people will surely remember the typical ‘Prem’ doing ‘Premleela’. Sonam Kapoor is looking fabulous in this traditional role and she has surely maintained the legacy of Rajshri’s ‘Bahu’. The other actors, including Swara Bhaskar, Neil Nitin Mukesh. Anupam Kher and Deepak Dobriyal had not much to do but then also they positively gave their best to support the story.

One more plus point of the film is its Music. Lots of tracks including the title track have already been on the lips of the fans and it will help the film to attain some more heights. Although, the director could cut short some unnecessary songs which extends the film’s duration.

The only loop whole in the film is the script which could have been far better than this. Sooraj is known for his tight scripts filled with the emotions and values but this film lacks the story. That’s why these prolific actors can’t do anything without a good script.

So, finally at the end, you can watch ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ if you love Salman and Sooraj Barjatya’s family entertainer and missed this ‘Jodi’ for the last 16 years.

My rating for ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ is 3 out of 5 star.
