Just when you think DOLLY KI DOLI has an interesting storyline, it plummets, never to get a foothold again.
If the first 15 minutes are pure delight, watching Rajkumar Rao doing his Haryanvi act of a sugarcane farmer madly in love with Dolly (Sonam Kapoor), the moments that follow are unimaginative and boring throwing away whatever suspense director Abhishek Dogra was trying to create. Or was it that the film was meant to last just 15 minutes?
DOLLY KI DOLI is a classic case of getting feisty with a story and not knowing what to do after the trump card has been revealed. The genius lies in making the plot interesting, despite letting the viewer early on, on the goings-on. But after Dogra has revealed Dolly's modus-operandi, the rest gets traumatic.
The scenes get repetitive and there is no novelty left in the acting as well. Even the idea that Dolly continues to do what she started doing, conning grooms, even after being nabbed, is far-fetched.
The movie had a good premise but Dogra failed to juice out the plot for a fitting climax.
