  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-4
We all know that Bollywood is all about mix and match and also permutations and combinations. While the last few offerings from Yash Raj Films stable have been of diverse genre like action (GUNDAY), romance (DAAWAT-E-ISHQ), this week's film KILL DIL seems to be a mix of both the genres.

  •  Times Of India -Meena Iyer Rating-5
Shaad Ali's Kill Dil is inspired by countless Hollywood movies that showcase the protagonists romancing the gun. Here too, the two heroes Dev (Ranveer Singh) and Tutu (Ali Zafar) are orphans who are raised by a local Delhi don, Bhaiyyaji (Govinda). Brought up against the backdrop of bullets

  •  CNN IBN -Rajeev Masand Rating-5
'Kill Dil', directed by Shaad Ali, starts off promisingly despite its hackneyed plot. The film stars Ranveer Singh as Dev, and Ali Zafar as Tutu; they're a pair of hardened shooters who work for Bhaiyaji, a grizzled don played by Govinda. These trigger-happy killers banter relentlessly

  •  Hindustan Times -Anupama Chopra Rating-6
Honestly, I was a little wary of Kill Dil. After all, Bollywood has been ripping off the Tarantino oeuvre since Sanjay Gupta reworked Reservoir Dogs as Kaante. The dark, sly humor, the gleeful violence, the posturing in slow motion - it's all been done, and not very well. But I'm happy to report

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-4
A stylishly shot and neatly packaged action caper, Kill Dil could have been a killer film. It isn't. It simply doesn't have enough soul and substance to be able to go all the way to the finish line with its grand design in one piece. Director Shaad Ali, back in action seven years after the Jhoom

  •  India Today -Rohit Khilnani Rating-7
Here's another colorful entertainer from YRF banner directed by Shaadi Ali. In this two hour action drama you get to watch romance, guns, goons, jackets, parties, bikes, booze and blood. The story is set in Delhi, professional shooters Dev (Ranveer Singh) and Tutu (Ali Zafar) work for

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-1
I’ve just got done with ‘Kill Dil’, and my heart is still in a state of arrest: how can you make a film with a bunch of actors who have proved they are capable of carrying a scene, and above all Govinda, which is such a dud? This isn’t one of those films that slides aftera promising start. This begins badly

  •  The W14 -Mayank Shekhar Rating-6
This film is so many thousand feet over the top of anything you’ve seen lately that it worries you throughout if it’s going to fall flat on its face at some point. It doesn’t quite. And that’s mainly because the hero, Ranveer Singh, is on such serious steroids, you feel as if he’s capable of pulling

  •  Rediff -Sukanya Verma Rating-2
Before I rant, which I absolutely must, let me quickly congratulate Kill Dil for unlocking a whole series of achievements. Let’s see, wastes Govinda, makes Gunday look like one of the most sorted out movies of the year, and, baap of all blasphemies, squanders Gulzar’s recitation talent

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-6
There are a few delicious ironies in 'Kill Dil'. Here's a ghisa pita story so predictable that you could sleep through the middle of it and still not miss a point. But then at places, some scenes have been handled in a delightfully novel manner that you rub your sleepy eyes in disbelief.

  •  Gulf News -Manjusha Radhakrishnan Rating-5
It’s a premise that has been regurgitated by several Bollywood filmmakers with mediocre success. But what sets Kill Dil apart is the endearing performance by Singh. He’s as adorable as a wounded puppy and you may find yourself smiling at some of his antics in his quest to be a reformed rake.

  • -Lokesh Dharmani Rating-3
Let’s begin with a confession. I couldn’t watch the entire film. I was busy facepalming half the time. Let me break it down for you. Facepalm moment number 1- Bhaiyyaji has two gunmen: Baby-faced Assassin and Brooding-looks Badass who were found in a garbage dump when they

  •  Emirates 24/7 -Sneha May Francis
Even Govinda's dance moves can't save 'Kill Dil'. Shaad Ali’s chaotic take on romance and guns is best left unwatched. Barring the obvious similarity in title and a scene where Ranveer Singh wears a cheap imitation of Uma Thurman's legendary yellow suit, director Shaad Ali’s ‘Kill Dil’ is

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-4
For the first 15 minutes of the film, expect to watch the re-run of Gunday. Baywatch style running and the grey world of being evil is the basic theme of the film. Filled with inane jokes, the story sketches itself as a story of two henchmen who work for the dreaded Gangster, Bhaiyaji.

  •  Daily Bhaskar Rating-5
We could not sit through Shaad Ali’s last film Jhoom Barabar Jhoom some seven years ago. And the man is back with his latest film Kill Dil only to test our patience again. Kill Dil is the best example of how to waste the best talent available in the industry. Ranveer Singh (Blockbuster Singh)

  •  Zee News -Anindita Dev Rating-6
One of the much hyped movies of this year, `Kill Dil` has released. It managed to create a buzz in the virtual world right from the start because of the ensemble cast that it boasts of. Also, as `Kill Dil` marks the comeback of Govinda after a long hiatus, I had high hopes when

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-2
It's stylish; Parineeti Chopra looks like a million bucks and both the dudes do a good job as male models, but it is not enough to keep you interested in this 'script less' film. It looks like scenes from GUNDAY which were edited, or which may not have been shot, have been used here with different actors.

  •  Book My Show -Tanaya Ramyani Rating-6
Ladki jo chhat se apne papa ko thakel deti hai, usse ka kehte hai batao? Push-paa! What’s life without some PJs? And what’s a Bollywood film without some Kill and Dil? Fresh from Yash Raj Films, we have Shaad Ali’s Kill/Dil. Here’s a warning before you continue: in case you are expecting

  •  DNA -Tushar Joshi Rating-4
Ranveer Singh and Ali Zafar manage to raise the tempo in their introductory scenes. Their banter doesn't seem forced or rehearsed and there is no attempt to overshadow the other. Despite having the popular role, Ranveer lets Ali who has a more docile demeanour take the front when required.

  •  Hindustan Times -Sweta Kaushal Rating-4
With Kill Dil, you get the ever-energetic Ranveer Singh in Dev, a very powerful Govinda in Bhaiyaji, a strong and level-headed Parineeti in Disha and a Dostana-style (the 1980 movie starring Amitabh Bachchan and Shatrughan Sinha) loving friend in Ali Zafar's Tutu. With high production

  •  Moviez Adda -Divya Solgama Rating-4
Director Shaad Ali debuted with 'Saathiya', which was a remake of 'Alaipayuthey' directed by Mani Ratnam. The movie was an instant hit along with great music by A.R Rahman. Though, it took three more years for Shaad to get his original due as a director in the form of 'Bunty Aur Babli'

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-5
This is one of those films - cool title, cooler actors, splendid visuals, a few smart-alecky lines and repackaging of cliches. So Ranveer Singh is one half of the Gunday, paired this time with Ali Zafar. He's the softie and dreamer between the two. For a pair that enjoys killing people

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Suparna Sharma Rating-4
Just like you, I have disliked many films. I’ve even hated a few. But I don't think I have been so deeply disappointed and saddened by a film in the recent past. The invites that director Shaad Ali and producer Aditya Chopra sent out for 'Kill/Dil' -- its trailers, promos, even songs

  •  India Today -Suhani Singh Rating-4
Yash Raj Films' fifth and final Hindi offering of the year like their first, Gunday, also has two men who grow up to love guns. Only the backdrop is Delhi and there is a godfather who is a control freak. Tutu (Ali Zafar) and Dev (Ranveer Singh) are wannabe cowboys /young assassins

  •  Filmi Beat -Suparno Rating-4
Bollywood movie Kill Dil starring Ranveer Singh, Parineeti Chopra, Ali Zafar and Govinda have released today. Directed by Shaad Ali, the film Kill Dil has been a much awaited movie for its star cast and it being Govinda's comeback flick as a lead character. Yash Raj Films presented Kill Dil

  •  Indiaglitz -Vishal Verma Rating-3
Never judge a book by its cover.. the trailers of Yash Raj’s ‘Kill Dil’ marking the return of the talented  Shaad Ali after the mistake in 2007 called ‘Jhoom Barabar Jhoom’ gave a impression of a Bollywoodised gonzo type crime caper that the notoriously famous Italian Tarantino used to make.

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Rahul Desai Rating-5
Earlier this year, there must've been a time when two directors under the same Banner were making virtually the same movie: Gunday, the Spaghetti Eastern and Kill/Dil, The Khichdi Northern. Ranveer Singh is one of the good baddies—a loyal brother from an unknown mother—in both films.

  •  Business Of Cinema -Udita Jhunjhunwala Rating-4
It’s an old story – two abandoned children rescued and raised by a man who becomes their father figure. Indebted to him, and raised in his shadow, they become fearless killers until one of the boys falls in love and wants to reform to be worthy of the girl’s love. The other boy stands by

  •  Bollywood Life -Namrata Thakker Rating-4
Shaad Ali’s film has too many elements – romance, action, bromance and naach-gaana. In one word its just ‘chaotic’. In fact, there are so many songs in the film that after a point I felt I was watching a music channel. Yes, the songs are good but having one in every 15 minutes is definitely

  •  Yahoo Movies -Rummana Ahmed Rating-4
Shaad Ali’s ‘Kill Dil’ is a fine example of a film marred by lousy storytelling. It’s an even bigger shame since the director did manage to get a decent cast in place, who seem completely convinced about this ridiculous plot. Even if you were to make discounts for a disjointed plot trajectory

  •  Deccan Herald -Angel Rani Rating-4
His boys — Ranveer Singh and Ali Zafar whom he had rescued as infants from a garbage bin — have grown into sharp shooters, firing from atop trains, bikes, cliffs, balconies and all other precarious perches. All goes bloody well till Ranveer meets the spirited Parineeti Chopra
