The film, titled “Dunki,” follows the journey of individuals seeking to enter a country illegally. Starting in Punjab, the story takes the audience on a global journey from London to the Middle East. The protagonist, Hardy Singh (portrayed by Shah Rukh Khan), encounters a group of misfits who share the dream of reaching London.
Hardy Singh, despite his deep connection to India, is captivated by the allure of London and the iconic landmark, Big Ben, which represents a dream of a better life for him. However, the path to London is filled with challenges, including the need to learn English in order to secure the necessary visas. However, with determination and hard work, he is willing to overcome these obstacles and make his dream a reality.
The gang chooses to go along a less-travelled path that leads to their destination after they fail the language exam. They become even more determined to reach London at all costs after a horrible tragedy.
Even though SRK is the main attraction, Hirani makes sure to give the other actors plenty of opportunities to shine. Hirani’s specialties have always been writing and conversation. Hirani’s distinctive feel-good humour and straightforward style are evident in Dunki’s first half, which is multilayered and subtle.
Vicky Kaushal is fantastic as Sukhi, and thankfully the character has been developed by the writers despite his little appearance. Taapsee Pannu is known for being both ferocious and quiet when the situation demands it, and she takes advantage of opportunities as they arise.
In a similar way, the other members of Team Dunki, Anil Grover and Vikram Kochher, have done excellent in their roles. SRK uses his charm in his portrayal of both the young and old Hardy. He once again demonstrates his king-like appeal as he finishes the year with a hattrick.
Conversely, Dunki’s second half is drawn out and poorly done. The humor is weak, and the plot wanders. Hirani’s writing is also at its least engaging in Dunki’s climax. In a bid to overestimate the emotional depth, the director lengthens sequences and adds extra weight to an already big retinue.
Concluding Dunki review we can say, compared to 3 Idiots or PK, Dunki may not be Hirani’s best film, but it certainly entertains and leaves you feeling dazzled.
