Three months ago Salman khan had come up with Bhajrangi Bhaijaan and won the appaluse from entire film fraternity. After ages, He has teamed up with his Main Pyaar kiya director Sooraj Bajratya again for Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. After a sabbatical of nine years, The director is back at the helm. His films like Main Pyaar kiya, Hum Aapke hai kaun and Hum saath saath hain are turned out as all time cult classics. Family emotions and values of relationships are the primary assets in sooraj bajaratya’s stories. After being teamed up with actor salman khan for most of his projects, The duo is back again with Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
PRDP opens with a troupe, Prem leela. A theatre artist, Prem dilwale played by salman khan has crush on a princess, Maithili (Sonam kapoor), who also runs charitrable trust, Upahaar. A prince Vijay singh (salman khan) is engaged to Maithili. He has some legal problems with his half sister, Rajkumari Chandrika (Swara bhaskara) owing to his callous attitude.While his coronation is on the edge, He meet with an incident in a plan to kill him by his half brother, Ajay singh played by Neil nithin mukesh. In the meantime, Diwan (Anupam kher) bring in Prem dilwale in place of vijay to find out the culprit behind mishap.In this course, Prem wins the hearts of his half sisters and Maithili. While vijay singh recuperating in a restricted fort, someone abducts him. what will happen next, forms the crux of the story.
It might be a old script, But this kind of stories needed to revive the values of relationships in present time. Although Sooraj Bajratiya is back at the helm after ages. He hasn’t lost his midas touch. The narrative reminded me of his repetoire.you will witness that huge sets, vintage cars and family emotions in this 171 minutes movie. There is no too much voilence and cheap oneliners. The story goes swiftly with the phenomenal performance of protagonist. Some dragging scenes should have been chopped off. Himesh Reshmiyaa has composed classic songs which remind you of 90’s. He did a good job.
Salman khan is the most associated actor with sooraj bajratya. Their previous ventures are turned out as all time classics. It is inevitable to expect much more from PRDP. The star actor carried off the film on his shoulder with his impeccable performance. Sonam kapoor didn’t match up to the standards of Bajratya actresses. She need a lot of groom in her acting. Neil Nithiin mukesh is another actor, who gave below par performance where there is much scope to prove his mettle. Anupam kher did a great job with the subtle emotions. Armaan Kohli didn’t fit into the role of antagonist. Passable performance by Swara bhaskara. Rest of the cast has supported well.
On the whole, Sooraj bajratya reminded you of 90’s days with his latest venture. He told us Nothing will give more happiness than family. Im sure this will ring the cash register at the box office. This movie is not for the people who do not believe in family values. I will go with three and half out of five stars.
