One line Review: The story revolves around Dolly, the ultimate runaway bride who fakes marriages just to loot her grooms and their families, and flees away with her gang only to find the another rich target.
Negative Points: Weak dialogue delivery and non involving performance by Sonam Kapoor, Illogical sequences, disappointing loose ends in the second half of the movie.
Plot: The beautiful Dolly (Sonam Kapoor) plays a quirky role of an unconventional yet perfect bride who dresses up and charms the men to marry her. She leads a notorious gang who meticulously researches upon the target prospective groom and, cons him and his family into the fake marriage. Thus, leaving them penniless on the very next day of the marriage.
Dolly and gang succeed to deceive many wealthy grooms, the course of which is presented in a three minute song but the focus remains on the three men- Sonu Sherawat, Manoj Singh Chadda and Robin Singh .
A Haryanvi lad named Sonu Sherawat (Rajkummar Rao) is the first target who genuinely falls in love with Dolly but gets trapped in the fraud by the con bride. The second target is a Punjabi Munda named Manoj Singh Chadda (Varun Sharma). He is a typical Mumma's boy who also falls prey in Dolly's trap. Then comes cop Robin Singh (Pulkit Samrat) who finally gets along with the other two victim grooms to unfold her truth. This cop has his own motive to crack the case of this 'Lootehri Dulhan' and holds some association with her past. What this connection leads to and where the twist in the climax is headed, is further answerable in the film.
Direction and Other Technical Aspects: This film is the directorial Debut of Abhishek Dogra and he has managed to do a decent job. There is not much in the story line and the screenplay remains weak but the twist in the climax and the unconventional ending makes it win a few points. There are a few illogical and unconvincing sequences unnecessarily dragged into the movie which is a bit disappointing.
Performances: Rajkummar Rao and Varun Sharma score full marks for their impeccable performances in the movie. Rajkummar gets into the character of Sonu Sherawat exceptionally well to the extent that even his body language supports his acting skills. Varun impresses all by his perfect comic timing and realistic performance. It is due to his character that one enjoys some delightful comic scenes in the movie. Pulkit Samrat essays the role of a cop named Robin Singh and unnecessarily resembles Salman Khan's Dabang Character -Rohin hood Pandey. Sonam Kapoor however does a decent job though the striking character of dolly could have been played more convincingly and with clarity.
Music: The item number featuring Malaika Arora Khan - 'Fashion Khatam' by Mamta Sharma and Wajid Ali is a peppy number yet not a striking one. The title track by Divya Kumar is precisely used in the film and is crafted beautifully. The other two loud numbers - 'Fateh tak Nachna' by Sunidhi Chauhan and 'Babaji ka Thullu' by Wajid Ali; Danish Sabri makes you swing. The romantic number 'Mere Naina Kafir Ho Gaye' sung by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is a melodious one.
Final Verdict: Dolly Ki Doli is a full on timepass masala movie. One needs to put their brains aside and enjoy the illogical yet some funny sequences presented in the movie. It is a light hearted film that fairly manages to do justice to the comedy genre if we purposely choose to avoid the loose strings and the weak script. The film features exceptional performances by Rajkummar Rao, Varun Sharma, Archana Puran Singh and few others from Dolly's gang which makes it a onetime watch. But it is definitely not a 'Paisa Vasool Types' movie though one can have a fun time watching it with the entire family.
