Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji (दिल तो बच्चा है जी)

Anyone who has checked out the stash of movies legally available on Youtube can see it is full of crap. Occasionally one finds something mediocre-to-good in it like Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji (दिल तो बच्चा है जी) for example. This is a romantic comedy directed by Madhur Bhandarkar. The movie puts three odd grown men under a single roof, united in their quest for love. Ajay Devgan is a dominated husband who has been divorced by his wife. Emraan Hashmi is looking for his next sugar mommy. Omi Vaidya (Chatur from 3 Idiots) is a romantic working at a matrimonial company. All three end up falling in love, but will it be reciprocated?

Despite some soppy parts, Madhur manages to squeeze out a good comedy in Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji. What I cannot understand is why he needs to make stereotypical depictions of homosexuality in it! Ajay Devgan shines and the rest of the cast delivers. Music-thief Pritam has given some good tracks: Abhi Kuch Dino Se, Tere Bin and Jadugari are on my playlist. Though nothing like Madhurkar’s other controversial movies, Dil To is a good funny movie to see sometime.
