Dil to Bacha Hai Ji - Preview
Dir: Madhur Bhandarkar
Mediocre lines are converted to lame by some awful timing and some rock-solid misdirection. Save a couple of interesting characters performed well, there's nothing at all watchable in this 150-minute ordeal.

No one can be blamed if they look for a theme when they are out to watch a Madhur Bhandarkar film. So here's the million-dollar question - what do you think is the theme of the Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji, here's a trailer to help with your guesses.
Men ogling at women with plenty of thought bubbles at their disposal. snicker
Nastiness aside, there seems to be an office environment but I seriously doubt the setting has anything to do with the three male leads hit by love. It actually will be refreshing to see Madhur Bhandarkar try a rom-com. And if the following snippets from the trailer are anything to go by, it looks like there will be a light and breezy com and the rom won't be a disgusting mush.
What is also highlighted is that the woman don't look like they'll have much to do and whatever they do only highlights that they are awful actors. Which also means the need for crisp dialogues is even stronger. The promos do give a glimpse of decent writing. As in, we sort-of know what the three men are like. Or at least we can take a fair guess on what their ideas about love, sex, marriage and everything that goes along are likely to be.
Just the kind of movie that could be full of clichés and yet has the potential to keep that smile on while it lasts.
milliblog - "Peppy, enjoyable score from Pritam."
music aloud - "Though the soundtrack lacks a song that matches the class of the song the movie borrowed its title from, Pritam produces an engaging fare for Dil To Bachcha Hai Ji."
