Prem Ratan Dhan Payo- Review
Meet modern-day royal, Vijay Singh (Salman Khan), who is about to be coronated as the Raja of Pritampur. He knows all the Shlokas by heart and the purity of the scriptures resonates in all his pranks and fun. All that he earns, he donates to a charitable fund which is run by Princess Maithili. He is enchanted by the simplicity of her nature, her leading a normal life and yet being brave enough to save people in the middle of floods.
The movie is clean, involving, and the best part is that it entails the values of family togetherness. Salman Khan’s lovable ‘Prem’ avatar and the smooth narration are the highlights of this family drama. The sets and the backdrop are apt and render a royal feel.
There are way too many songs in the film and they just pop up at random situations. Some of the songs are pointless and plain unnecessary.
Plot: Prem Dilwala (Salman Khan) is a fun-loving, good natured guy who is a part of a Ram Leela group and performs the famous Diwali Ramayan Katha in his exclusive style. He admires the Royal Princess Maithili (Sonam Kapoor) who has started an NGO called Uphaar Trust. He donates his entire salary to her foundation and wishes to meet her in person. Princess Maithili is engaged to the Royal Prince Vijay Singh (also played by Salman Khan). Prince Vijay Singh is a man of principles and regulations. He often finds himself lonely and is stressed due to internal family issues. He is troubled by his brother Ajay and step sisters – Chandrika (Swara Bhaskar) and Radhika, who are fighting over property matters.
A few days before Vijay Singh’s coronation ceremony, his younger brother Ajay (Neil Nitin Mukesh), plans for his accident so as to become the sole owner of the property. Fortunately, Vijay Singh survives but, suffers severe injuries. To project the Royal Highness from further such attacks, he is kept in a restricted secret fort by Deewan Sahab (Anupam Kher) who is a loyal worker of the province. Deewan Sahab finds a similar looking guy who is none other than Prem Dilwala and requests him to disguise as Vijay Singh, for a few days until the Raj Tilak ceremony. A hesitant Prem agrees to be part of this master plan only for Princess Maithili and while playing the role of the Prince, he falls in love with her. Prem Dilwala sorts out all the family disagreements with his charm and, reunites Vijay Singh’s family. The plot unfolds further when the real Prince Vijay Singh comes back into the picture. Watch the movie to find out what happens next! It is a delight to watch him in such roles. Anupam Kher as the loyal Deewan Sahab, impresses the most. He does complete justice to his role, displaying every emotion aptly. So, if you wish to have a quick happy escape from your current reality, this film is a must watch with your dear ones.
