Singh may have had the best lines, but actor Ali Zafar as Tutu complements him well as his partner in crime. Kill Dil doesn’t offer any riveting twists, but you don’t feel like putting a bullet to your head at the end of it either. Watch it if you love Singh and his nervous energy.

Ranveer, though genuine in parts, is left pumping so much energy into Dev that you tire by merely watching him move. And, that's unfortunate considering he's talented. His "veg/non-veg jokes" that lead him to a world of LOLs and ROFLs is one of rare, genuine fun. Zafar is unable to step out and own Tutu, and instead invests in the physicality to lend some authenticity to the character. He keeps his hair long, wears cool shades, and rides the stunning Bullet, but forgets to work on his voice modulation or his expressions. Govinda, despite playing the menacing goon, is unable to hide his dancing shoes. Whether he's happy or hopping mad, he prefers to dance and kill his stress. Parineeti Chopra joins the guy gang with a shocking wardrobe, and flutters her lush eyelashes to create a world of reform and goodwill. It's so exaggerated that we cringe at how she reduces her act into one of ridicule. She even attempts to sizzle through a few songs but fails.

Between Govinda and Ali Zafar, I couldn’t quite decide who was more bored. They looked disinterested like a Siddharth Mallya in an Asaram satsang. Ranveer Singh is endearing. He has worked very hard for the film. It took seven years for Shaad Ali to come back to direction after Jhoom Barabar Jhoom. I wish the sabbatical had lasted a little longer though.

Govinda in an all-new mean, if not lean, avatar is interesting, but that is about it. He still seems to be most at ease when he is allowed to tap his feet. Fluff is Ranveer Singh's forte. He is good when he is playful; passable when he has to pull off heavy-duty emoting; but best when he is required to be only a bundle of energy. Ali Zafar's overly affable presence does not quite gel with the cool-cat, ruthless gunman that he plays. Parineeti Chopra isn't obviously cut out for the sultry siren act, but all she needs are the little moments when she is allowed to be real - like when she proposes to the boy she loves atop Qutub Minar - to demonstrate why she deserves meatier roles. Watch Kill Dil if you have plenty of time to kill. It is unlikely to deliver much joy to your dil, though.

Once again Ranveer Singh steals the show! His energy levels are unmatched. Govinda does a fab job too as the negative lead. His walk, laughter, expressions and of course dance steps are still entertaining. Parineeti Chopra as always does her part well. She is convincing every single time. Ali Zafar is good as the second lead! The film is shot beautifully and actors are styled very well. Music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy is good and Shaad Ali deserves a pat on his back for putting all this together. Even after all the little flaws Kill Dil is a good watch! Two hours of pure entertainment.

Nothing rescues us, however. Because Govinda can dance, he’s given a couple of completely outlandish numbers. But there’s nothing in this that he can save with his still-deft moves. Ali Zafar’s familiar amiable self is hopelessly miscast. Ranveer Singh is given a part that allows him to shoot and scoot, things he can do with ease, and is partnered with Parineeti Chopra: the two are buried under despite their best efforts. And ‘Kill Dil’ goes one better in the way it gets all its lead characters to spew cringe-inducing, crass dialogue. Dear Yashraj, are you serious?

Kill Dil is a perfect comeback for the ‘Dancing Legend- Govinda’. Not any Tom, Dick or Harry could have played Bhaiyaji’s role better than him. Be it for his killer dance moves or his villainous looks, Govinda‘s performance is commendable. Ranveer’s exuberance and the liveliness with which he has portrayed the character of Dev in the film is laudable. With every new character he plays on screen, Ranveer has never failed to surprise us with something new. Ranveer’s character in the film is pretty much similar to what he is best known for and we must say, Ranveer’s madness knows no bounds! After Total Siyaapaa being a huge box-office flop, it seems like Ali Zafar‘s performance in the film is all set to get positive reviews from the critics. Ali Zafar, whose forte is comedy, Govinda, who played lead roles in commercially successful comedy films and Ranveer Singh, who is known for his enthusiastic and high spiritedness- they are like the electrons with the highest energy levels! The level of rambunctiousness that is seen in the movie by this killer trio is unimaginable!
Rating:2/5 Review By:Bollywood Hungama News Network Site:Bollywood Hungama
Let's face it that, KILL DIL is a film which clearly lacks the 'YRF' style. With this film, director Shaad Ali has terribly failed to recreate the same magic which he had earlier exhibited in films like SAATHIYA and BUNTY AUR BABLI. He falters big time with KILL DIL, which goes onto prove that a film cannot solely survive on music, performances or story plot. It has to be the right proportion of the three. The jack of the pack in the film is indeed the veteran actor Govinda, who makes a comeback in Bollywood with this film. Even though he has grown old, there is nothing in him which prevents him from moving shoulder to shoulder with Ranveer, Ali and Parineeti. On the whole, KILL DIL is a film, which could have been worth watching, had it been handled and directed properly. This film's definitely worth a miss.
