Have you ever experienced a state of high, without being
intoxicated? Well if the answer is no, please do go watch Dishkiyaoon. Because
one would never realise as to what exactly is going on in the film. Try to picture
this, who you thought would be the hero is not the hero, but he is not the villain
either; and the villain is not really the villain, the supporting cast becomes
the main cast and main cast seems dumbstruck. Confused? Well feelings are
The story revolves around Viky (Harman Baweja) who has lost
his mother. He is lonely in his world and is shown least care and love by his
father due to which he takes an unwise route and finally enters the mafia
world. Later he meets Lakwa (Sunny Deol) who turns him into a gangster. Viky is
now Viky Katoos and is set to rule the underworld. Amidst all, he finds his
true love in the name of Ayesha Khanna with whom he wants to spend a peaceful
life. But as destiny had it, Viky's U-turn proves dangerous for him and here
begins his battle to come out of the mud filled with betrayal and conspiracy.
Performances in this film; well Sunny Deol who plays the
role of Lakwa pretty much only has some heavy dialogue delivery with a strong
Haryanvi accent. Sunny Deol doesn't seem to have come out of his 'dhai kilo ka haat'
irrespective is a delight to watch in his own way. Harman Baweja who essays the
role of Viki Kartoos, looks amazing onscreen but faults big time on dialogue delivery.
Though all the action sequences he has been given, has been done full justice.
Aditya Pancholi who plays a cop, Mr. Khan, doesn't suit the role but is not
disturbing. Two characters have to be specially mentioned and they are Anand
Tiwari and Prashant Narayanan. Both these actors have done an outstanding job,
irrespective of however the film was. Anand Tiwari will be seen in completely
different role as compared to his role in Go Goa Gone. Ayesha Khanna in her debut
has not much to do but is tolerable enough.
Palash Muchhal's music doesn't have much contribution;
neither does it have any track that is hummable. Even the item song with Shilpa
Shetty is not worth mentioning. The only thing it does is that his stops the noise
of guns and bullets in adequate intervals. Editing needed some more work to it,
as a running time of 119 minutes has been quite painful.
All in all this one is also another mafia film
which has a done to death plot and has nothing new or fresh in the offering.
One could go in to watch some nice action sequences, but other than that we
could look for other things to do this weekend.
