Story / Writer
The film received an A/Adults only rating by the Central Board of Film Certification when Bhandarkar refused to cut several scenes he felt were integral to the film.
Men will be men
Starring Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi and Omi Vaidya, 'Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji' is a slice of life movie that talks about three men and their encounters with love. Shazahn Padmasee, Shruti Hassan and debutante Shraddha Das will play their love interests respectively.
Ajay Devgn's 2nd attempt at love
Naren Ahuja (Ajay) is in his thirties and is going through divorce. While nursing his broken heart following a failed marriage, Naren meets vibrant and bubbly June Pinto (Shazahn) and can't stop himself from falling in love with this young girl.
Omi in search of true love
Milind Kelkar (Omi) is a naive poet and idealistic lover. He develops a liking for an ambitious and practical Gunjan Sarkar (Shraddha) who is determined to follow her dreams.
Emraan finally falls for lvoe
But Abhay (Emraan), a charming casanova, is different. His mantra in life is money and women. But his life too takes a turn after an encounter with Nikki (Shruti), a modern girl who knows her needs and speaks her mind. He too experiences love, an emotion he had always stayed away from
Madhur Bhandarkar takes a new turn
According to director Bhandarkar, the film is a funny take on love, with real-life characters, and shows to what extent people would go to achieve it or avoid it
Bhandarkar's attempt at rom-com
Bhandarkar is known for making hard-hitting and realistic films like 'Chandni Bar', 'Fashion' and 'Jail' which garnered critical acclaim as well as box office success. With 'Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji', Bhandarkar attempts to move away from serious cinema and take the audience on a laughter ride. However, the filmmaker is adamant that his stamp and signature style will be evident in the film.
Comedy a first for Emraan
Just like his director, Emraan, known for playing edgy roles in 'Murder', 'Gangster - A Love Story' and 'Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai', is trying comedy for the first time.
Omi - The Maharashtrian boy
Omi has expectations riding high because this is his second release after blockbuster '3 Idiots' and the actor admits this has been a challenging role for him as he plays a Maharashtrian and he had to ensure that his accent is perfect. Apparently, Omi learnt the language for days to get into the character and speak Marathi.
Ajay's fisrt attempt for this year
Last year brought a mixed response for Ajay's films. While 'Golmaal 3' and 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai' and 'Raajneeti' were hits, his home production 'Toonpur Ka Superhero' and 'Aakrosh' failed to impress the audiences. Ajay hopes to start the new year on a good note with 'Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji', which is the solo release this week.
Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji is the kind of film that makes me reach for that extremely awkward rating – two and three-quarter stars.
The film, about three house-mates and their tangled love lives, is definitely among Madhur Bhandarkar’s better efforts. It has moments of charm but never becomes grating candy-floss. Madhur, whose usually have names like Traffic Signal and Jail, has a tougher take on love and longing. And yet, Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji never soars because the treatment is resolutely pedestrian.
Madhur lets go of his trademark voyeurism but he can’t resist adding a touch of crass. So when a man asks another, how do you do? The obviously gay character replies: "Any way you like it."
The three men are Naren, played by Ajay Devgn, a mild-mannered banker, separated from his super-ambitious reporter wife; Abhay or Abby, played by Emraan Hashmi, a playboy gym trainer who lives off rich girlfriends and believes that ‘it’s survival of the cutest’; and Milind, played by Omi Vaidya, an earnest poet who is proudly holding on to his virginal status until marriage. All three fall in love and discover that the ways of the heart are complex and fairly brutal.
The most textured of these relationships is that between Naren and his nubile office colleague June, played nicely by Shazahn Padamsee. She is vivacious and ditzy. She calls him sir but thinks nothing of holding his hand and teaching him how to There is a genuine sweetness in Naren’s crush on her and his awkwardness at the age gap.
Watch a scene in which Naren goes to a party with June and instantly becomes a dinosaur when he starts singing Koi Hota from the Mere Apne, which of course was released before June or any of her friends were born. Ajay does the subdued, hesitant, swept-off-his-feet boss well. The least successful is the relationship between Abby and his rich married girlfriend Anushka, played by Tisca Chopra. Tisca is a fine but she seems miscast as an ex-super-model who likes toy- boys while Emraan as Casanova is just lazy casting.
Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji has an interesting but the characters and situations aren’t fleshed out enough. There is an inherent clumsiness and in places the film feels long and leaden. Still, if you keep your expectations low, it makes for mildly diverting
I’m going with two and three-quarters stars.

01-28-2011, 10:28 PM #2The last time it had so much fun watching a movie about three guy friends was a decade ago with Dil Chahata Hai. This time it’s National Award winning director Madhur Bhandarkar’s Dil Toh Baccha Hai Jee. Well, there is nothing common between the two movies except for the fact that both the titles start with the word “Dil” and both the movies are about three male friends.
Let me tell you the story very briefly. Naren (Ajay Devgn), a banker, is going through mid-life crisis in the middle of his impending divorce. He is head over heels in love with June (Shazahn Padamsee) who happens to be his junior at work and 17 years younger to him. As revealed by her that she was just 3 when he lost his “V” at 20. Abhay aka Abby (Emraan Hashmi) is an unemployed gym instructor and a “hardcore” womanizer. He plays a toyboy to a bored social butterfly Anushka (Tisca Chopra). Everything is fine till he falls in love with Nikki (Shruti Hassan) who turns out to be Anushka’s step daughter. Taking both mother as well as daughter for a ride is not such a good idea. Then we have Milind (Omi Vaidya) who proudly announces his “virgin” status. A true lover to the core, Milind is used by Gungun (Shradha Das) to fulfill her ambitions to become an actress. All these three men live under one roof sharing their problems and rejoicing in each others love victories.
The movie is a light-hearted comedy-cum-romantic flick. There is no stupid buffoonery or useless humor to it. What really makes you laugh are the funny one-liners which are carefully spread out in the entire movie. Good job by Sanjay Chhel. No mindless confusion or childish gimmicks to tickle the funny bone. What you will get is a simple and plain movie which looks very much like the love in the times of Facebook and Twitter. There is old-men-longing-for-young-girls, “fast” girls exploiting innocent men, girls having a “little fun” with no strings attached, and the list goes on….
DTBHJ is all about the trio right from the first frame of the movie. Ajay Devgn has already proved himself as an actor in his countless movies. Who can forget Omi Vaidya’s acting calibre? As for Emraan Hashmi, the man does it again. The effortless acting of all the three leading men is applaudable. The female cast, Tisca Chopra as a socialite, Shazahn Padamsee as a young and lively intern and Shradha Das as a typical glamor-loving, calculating girl have given decent performances. Shurti Hassan is a bit of a disappointment with absolutely no expressions on her face. Thank God she is introduced quite late in the movie.
But all the accolades should go to Madhur Bhandarkar for breaking his serious image and entering into a genre which is very difficult to handle. After all, making people laugh is no child’s play, right???? He has proved that if he can give us “Fashion” and “Chandni Bar” then he can also give us a “Dil Toh Baccha Hai Jee”. Music by Pritam is nothing great to talk about. However, we don’t mind humming “Lalalaaaaa…”.
All in all, DTBHJ is one of those movies which you would like to watch on a casual Sunday when you have nothing much to do. However, if you have an appetite for either intellectual humor or idiotic foolishness then do not watch this flick, you will be left starving at the theater....being a human...
