Arjun Patiala Movie Review:
The movie's writing, direction, and execution become increasingly childish and pointless in the second half, as it stumbles towards a hotch-potch of a climax. Thankfully, the makers do not resort to cheap, offensive or vulgar humor in a desperate attempt to make you laugh. Film's music is average except for the peppy dance number 'Preeto'.
Diljit Dosanjh delivers decent performance with a few laugh-out-loud moments. His innocence brings out the vulnerability of his character that is instantly likable. His actress Kriti Sanon (introduced as Heroine No.1) looks flawless, but the same can't be said about her role. The writing gives her little to work with other than mouthing dialogues without much conviction. But the one who manages to deliver most laughs is Varun Sharma. From his amusing backstory to his forced singlehood, Varun is simply the guy, who can make you laugh at his expense. He also gets some of the best lines that fall quite short in pulling off an out and out comedy.
Spoof comedies can be a tricky affair and this one is way too underwhelming to tickle your funny bone for a full two hours.
