Arjun Patiala Reviews
With Diljit Dosanjh’s high likeable quotient, faithful sidekick Varun Sharma’s skills at delivering broadsides, pretty heartthrob Kriti Sanon’s dazzling pearly-whites, and a host of reliable supporting acts, Arjun Patiala should have been much better than it is.
A Profoundly Unfunny Comedy That Oversells Its Spoofy Tone...A feature-length comedy that somehow manages to embody all the lazy stereotypes it makes fun of
Diljit Dosanjh is affable but profoundly bland as Arjun Patiala. Varun Sharma as Arjun's side-kick Onida and Kriti Sanon as Ritu Randhawa are tolerable.
Diljit Dosanjh, Kriti Sanon’s parody film fails to take off despite its talented cast. The punches don’t land as stuttering and belching stand in for jokes.
With not a plausible storyline, poor jokes overflow, and even the actors are given a free rein with little effort.
Spoof comedies can be a tricky affair and this one is way too underwhelming to tickle your funny bone for full two hours.
Arjun Patiala feels like a Punjabi film masquerading as a Bollywood one. The humour is deliberately rough and rustic and the filmmaking clunky. The hero has a glad eye, uses some utterly banal and incorrect lines about maa behen ki izzat but gets away from it all by giving a self-righteous lecture on consent.
