Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji : Movie review

Madhur Bhandarkar should have stuck to what he knows best. Here he gives up on issue-based cinema and dives headlong into a masala rom-com...and drowns. A story of three men learning and re-learning lessons in love is pregnant with possibility, but the film is massacred wholesale by bad writing, inane dialogue and the the worst collection of support actors assembled a long time (barring the competent Tisca Chopra). Even the music, while pleasant, has hardly any recall value.
The lead trio of Omi Vaidya, Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi are eminently watchable and bravely try to salvage the film, but this ship's so full of holes that even they can't save it. Save yourself the ticket money and rent the DVD sometime. Umm, actually, on second thoughts, don't bother with that either.
