DIL JUUNGLEE is directed by the primary timer Aleya Sen, who’s the co-founder of a manufacturing home– Chrome Photos. It’s far too evident from the general therapy given to the challenge to know novice has helmed the film. Writing by Aleya, Tanoya Sen Sharma and Shiv Singh is lacklustre and boring. Regardless of being a girl, Sen paints her feminine lead in a poor mild usually making her look needy, determined and a pushover. Koroli’s purpose is to ‘cool down’ and continually hankers for male validation from her boyfriend, fiancé or father. She in the end falls over again for a person who can solely be described as entitled and egocentric. DIL JUUNGLEE has a reasonably clichéd plot with clichéd characterisation.
Efficiency clever, Saqib makes an effort to maintain plenty engaged together with his impeccable comedian timing and different histrionics within the first half of the movie.
