Dunki movie review


Taapsee, Anil Grover, Vikram Kochhar, and Vicky Kaushal, hailing from Laltu, Punjab, decide to go to London for various reasons.

They realize that English is the need of the hour to clear IELTS and enroll in a coaching center.

Shah Rukh Khan, a soldier, helps them achieve their dream through the Dunki method (Donkey Flight method), which is an illegal way of crossing borders.

Who is Shah Rukh Khan? Why did he help them? Why did they choose an unlawful way to travel to London? What experiences they faced in this journey is what the film is about.


Directed by Rajkumar Hirani  Dunki has a very good first half, which majorly relies on comedy. There are a few good moments in the second half.

There are a good number of scenes that will tickle the funny bones. Those humor scenes have Hirani mark written all over them.

While Hirani gets it right with regard to humor, the emotions could have been handled in a much better manner.

Shah Rukh Khan, as a performer, shines in Dunki.  Especially in the court scene that comes during the second half.

Taapsee Pannu did a fine job, and she has got a solid role in the movie.

Anil Grover and Vikram Kochhar will leave the audience in splits with their comedy timing.

Pritam’s songs are good, and the background score by Aman Pant is neat.

Rest of the technical aspects have worked out well.

Rating: 3.4/5
