Dulha Mil Gaya is a mixture of many past Bollywood films and deals with four divergent characters who do not jell on the screen.
The story unfolds in Trinidad and Tobago. Care-free rich young man Tej Dhanraj aka Donsai (Fardeen Khan) has an innate aversion to commitment and marriage. He marries Samarpreet (Ishita Sharma) and runs away.
Samarpreet is a typical traditional Indian young woman who values marriage and committed long term relationships and travels all the way from Punjab to Trinidad in search of Tej. She transforms into Samara at the behest of Shimmer (Sushmita Sen) who is a glam doll committed to her career and feels love and bonding are mere transient issues but has an eye on Pawan Raj Gandhi (Shah Rukh Khan) who is a billionaire who believes success in love is the true priority of life.
Will Samarpreet reunite with Dhanraj? Will Shimmer succeed in roping in Pawan Raj Gandhi? Dulha Mil Gaya? By the time the climax arrives (if there is one), these questions become irrelevant.
Sushmita Sen does her role well and is the only saving grace of the film. Fardeen Khan looks convincing. Ishita Sharma essays her role with confidence. Shah Rukh Khan in his special appearance is his usual self. Johny Lever and Mohit Chadha do not have much scope to deliver. All others are just about adequate and go through their motions.
The story and screenplay by Mudassar Aziz is too week to generate any interest in viewing. His direction, particularly presentation is above average but the characterization is inadequate and thus the narration goes limp in spite of some interesting episodes. Even SRK’s entry doesn’t lift the film’s falling graph.
Dialogues are routine and lack punch. Music is just about average. Cinematography by Sunil Patel is top notch.
Dulha Mil Gaya is like a fruit salad made of stale fruits without any cream or sugar. You can wait to see this film on some TV channel later on, unless you are a die hard fan of Sushmita. The tag line of the film says “Say yes to a relationship” but the film does not relate to the audience in any way.
