Movie Synopsis: JIHNE MERA DIL LUTEYA
The movie is about three college-going friends Yuvraj, Gurnoor and Noor. Yuvraj and Gurnoor are the sons of two wealthy landlords, who are daggers drawn towards each other although they were very close friends earlier. After years of not even on talking terms, Yuvraj and Gurnoor are united after they are into wooing Noor, while she is totally against marriage. So Yuvraj and Gurnoor unite for a common cause, that is, converting Noor’s opinion in favour of marriage. The movie is a love-triangle with an addition of another angle when another suitor comes to marry Noor. He is Karanveer (played by Binnu Dhillon).
Film Review: JIHNE MERA DIL LUTEYA
The movie with the usual love-triangle Bollywood masala is definitely an interesting watch. The movie Jihne Mera Dil Luteya has enough to capture the audience’s attention inspite of the typically drawn story-line. What adds magic to this Bollywood style masala is the refreshing humour and the spontaneous and natural comedy done by the actors in the movie. Binnu Dhillon, no doubt, deserves special accolades for playing an idiotic role so brilliantly. It is only an intelligent actor, who can do justice to a not-so intelligent role. It is not everyone’s cup of tea.
Many of the dialogues from the movie ‘Jihne Mera Dil Luteya’ are so infectious they became an instant hit with the viewers. The leading actors in the movie, Diljit Dosanjh, Gippy Grewal and Neeru Bajwa, fitted very well into their roles. Neeru Bajwa is a seasoned actor by now and has carved out a niche for herself in the Punjabi film industry. When we take the case of the two singer turned actors, Diljit and Gippy, we can very easily see that they are not at all misfit into their characters. They did full justice to their characters. Diljit has definitely set a new standard of acting in Punjabi movies. Read more about Diljit: ‘Diljit has definitely arrived’
The story is well-scripted with apparently almost no loose ends. This is a feat occasionally achieved with a typically common story. With a gripping screenplay, the movie nowhere loses its pace; it is neither racy nor very slow, just the right to maintain the viewer’s gripping attention. The suspense was also maintained in a perfect manner with no slip-slops.
Overall, the movie is a must watch for all those who enjoy and promote Punjabi cinema; for all those who have followed the growth of Punjabi cinema and want to see where it has arrived with ‘Jihne Mera Dil Luteya’ and for all Punjabis and who understand Punjabi language.
