Funny are the ways of love and life. “Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji” opens with a bunch of caricatures of scenes from the movie itself, hinting that it is supposed to be funny. It manages to an extent but Madhur Bhandarkar’s style doesn’t quite suit the genre.

dil-toh-baccha-hain-ji-1.jpgThe movie is a romantic comedy, but in a different sense. Bhandarkar abstains from candyfloss and milks the humour from the ironies of life, while spinning his romantic tale; the story of 3 single men, each with a different take on love, living under the same roof. Naren (Ajay Devgn) is a Bank Manager in the middle of a divorce and looking for company to survive it. His search yields two PGs who are complete opposites. Milind (Omi Vaidya) is a God-worshipping, poetry-writing, proud virgin while Abhay (Emraan
Hashimi) is a lazy gym instructor who indulges in all kinds of aerobic exercise with his lady clients.dil-toh-baccha-hain-ji-2.jpg

The three actors don’t manage to muster the familiarity that roommates share, by failing to act off each other. The chemistry between them and the women they pursue is a notch higher though. Naren’s fascination with June (Shazahn Padamsee), a colleague almost half his age, is almost boyish at times and the innocence of some moments shared by them is heart warming. June’s dialogue comprises of quite a few ‘please’s but it suits her young vibrant character, baby voice et al.

Abhay lands up juggling women from two generations and Milind’s heart’s desire is totally out of his league. The struggles of these men are amusing, but the movie doesn’t reach its potential. The refreshing story is executed in an amateur fashion and lacks finesse. Funny dialogue loses out due to flaws in delivery as the actors aren’t good with their timing.

dil-toh-baccha-hain-ji-3.jpgThe movie also doesn’t manage to build a tempo because too much time is spent elaborating on unnecessary details, while certain sensitive issues are rushed through. There is a certain underlying awkwardness that runs throughout, lending an incomplete feel.

The situations are very real with some unexpected twists and outcomes. It does make you reflect on the fact that sometimes we prefer living in our world, choosing to believe in the perception of it rather than the reality.

“Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji” has a solid story, but picture thoda kachcha hai ji.
