Hi friends, Today I saw the Hindi movie 'London Dreams'. Starring Salman Khan, Ajay Devgan, Asin.. My Review London Dreams’ is a story of two friends who love each other but one of them loves his ambition more than anything else. Arjun(Ajay Devgan)is passionate for music and wants to earn name and fame in the world of music. Mannu (Salman Khan) is a gifted singer who is content being a child at heart and play for his village marriage band. Arjun forges a band in London and gets his best friend Mannu to join him, not knowing that he is creating the biggest threat and obstacle to his own ambitions. Performances After ‘Wanted’ here comes another treat for Salman fans. You will be pleasantly surprised to find Salman in his elements in this film where he plays a village boy with a pure heart. Watch him dancing freestyle a la Dharmendra, and you will find yourself grinning from ear to ear. Ajay Devgn delivers a powerful performance as an ambitious singer who can do anything and everything to fulfill his dream and have his moment of glory. ‘Chennai Express’, as leading lady Asin is fondly called in the film,is too good with her expressions but as a part of the band, we wish she had more to do than just dancing in the background. Salman-Ajay combo does make a powerful impact years after the two were last seen sharing screen space in ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’. Direction Vipul Shah takes the audience for an emotional ride through the cinematic excellence he brings to the subject garnished with love, anger, jealousy, ambition, friendship and rivalry. He extracts impressive performances from his starcast. Story/Screenplay A heartwarming story, has a fine blend of rustic Punjab and international locations More of an emotional drama, the screenplay is successful in keeping the audience engrossed. Music The film based on aspirations of a band, has decent music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy. But the songs fail to be superhit numbers.
