Dil Juunglee is not a film; it’s a bunch of the most vapid characters conceivable, hanging loose, doing some monkey tricks and playing “Audience audience in the hall, who is the most irritating of us all”.
- Director: Aleya Sen
- Starring: Taapsee Pannu, Saqib Saleem
- Run Time: 124 minutes
- Storyline: Boy and girl meet, fall in friendship, fall in love, fall in misunderstanding but eventually end up living happily ever after
In other words, a terrible test in patience for the viewer. In fact, the cast doesn’t feel human at all, behaves like hyper cartoons with over excessive accents who need to be urgently put on leash. So uniformally over the top are they that minutes after the film you are left wondering who you hated the most? The boy and girl who randomly fall in and out of love? Their screechy, shrieky dost and fiancés or those pointless parents?
Disjointed, tackily put together with no sense of drama and direction, it will be difficult to top this one on the inanity stakes this year. Some films are so bad that they turn out good in a fun way. Dil Juunglee is so bad that it is horrifically bad.
