“Dil To Baccha Hai Ji” is first attempt from well known and appreciated film director Madhur Bhandarkar in light hearted romantic comedy genre. Before this he made very hardcore serious film and was very successful at it. So what made him try for a change, only he knows; but I am happy he did not opt for crazy slapstick comedy.
This movie is about three guys sharing a room. Naren played by Ajay Devgn is a divorcee who is going through a midlife crisis. He falls in love with his office secretary June played by Shahazn Padamsee. But in the end he finds out she was never interested in him. Then there is Milind a goofy guy played by 3 Idiots fame Omi Vaidya. He falls in love with an aspiring actress cum RJ played by Shradha Das. She exploits Milind’s money for her advantage. Then there is playboy Abhay played by Emraan Hashmi. He becomes a toyboy to famous socialite played by Tisca Chopra and enjoys all the privileges from this relationship until he falls in love with the daughter of same socialite played by Shruti Hassan. Who also use Abhay as Toyboy for time being and dumps him.
So this is a story of how all of them fall in love head over their heels and eventually gets heartbroken by girls. Although the script tries to be funny, it failed to do so in various scenes. But as for acting all 3 major actors did great job.
If I have to rate this movie I will give it 6 out of 10.
