Finally a musical where the actors don’t need a reason to crack into a song. Hey that is what Hindi films are made up of. So there’s no complaining here. DVPV is one of the most average films to have been made in recent times. It is not bad but it ain’t that good either. There are moments – that are good and then there are moments.


DVPV is an ensemble of four love stories that run parallel to each other without really mingling with the other. And there’s nothing novel here either. Maddy (Madhavan) and Namrata’s love track resembles the story of Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Abhimaan to the core not to forget Asrani added for the reminder effect. Jimmy and Hrishitaa is the typical rich boy poor girl saga. The only difference being that there is some novelty in where the romance happens – a train station. Jimmy and his comic punches are also something that keep you entertained and bring in the much-needed laughs. An admirable performance here by Jimmy who otherwise has the image of a brooding, intense lover. Sanjay Suri is a widower who can’t get over his first love. And then falls in love with his neighbour played by Sonali Kulkarni.


The unique love story of Raakesh Bapat and Bhavna Pani is the one that could be the most sensitive but is not handled well at all. In fact the climax where Raakesh decides to suddenly get up and face the music of life is done in the most unconvincing way possible. Coming back to the musical, the songs if weren’t old classics would have been too much to handle. Although some songs still are jarring. On the bright side, it is nice to see so many actors in one film. If you can bear to watch 14 songs this film probably is worth a dekko.
