With both Wanted and Dil Bole Hadippa hitting the big screens this Friday, it seems to be Rani Vs. Salman at the box office. Unfortunately Aditya Chopra's latest offering - directed by Anurag Singh - doesn't quite hit the mark.
Reminding you strongly of Amanda Bynes 2006 Hollywood hit, She's the Man; Dil Bole Hadippa does it's best to combine larger than life entertainment, Yash Raj's tried and tested Punjabi scenery, and cricket.
 
Shahid Kapoor does a good job as Rohan Singh, cricket captain of a country team in England who reluctantly travels to India to aid his dad's [Could it be anyone other than Anupam Kher?] failing team to victory.  Our hero is soon bowled over by Veera Kaur (Rani Mukherjee) - a cricket mad aspirant who transforms herself in to a Sardar in the hopes of being able to play under the new captain.
 
Thankfully the movie is made worth watching by Rani Mukherjee.  Looking better than she has in years, Rani does a superb job as a male cricketer and makes Veera Kaur a memorable character in the otherwise cliche movie.
 
Sherlyn Chopra and Rakhi Sawant do their best to make a mark as Miss Chandigarh and the dancing queen of Jigri Yaar Dance Company.
 
Unfortunately, the Punjabi heavy music does its best to celebrate life but falls short of expectations and dissapoints as it leaves us with no memorable tracks.
 
Ultimately, watch the movie if you have nothing else to do over the weekend; and only then for Rani's amazing performance and the sweet chemistry she shares with Shahid.
