Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas is a sweet, simple film that doubles as a throwback to old-school romance (especially the first half), mixed with bouts of "seeti-maar" action. There's outdated, and there's old-school, and Sunny Deol has clearly given us the latter, certain flaws in the second half notwithstanding. Also, kudos to how he's envisioned the scenes with his cinematographers — several shots look absolutely breathtaking. The man of the hour, Karan Deol, makes an endearing debut, but really shines in action, with his fisticuffs drawing loud cheers and claps from the audience in my show — the legacy of the Deol family is safe in the hands of its 3rd generation. Sahher Bambba, too, is a find. If you can keep modern-day cynicism, narcissism, and social-media clutter at bay, there's a charming, nostalgic film to be enjoyed here. I'm certain there's going to be those who'll diss this review from their pseudo-intellectual viewpoint, but it doesn't matter as proven by the reaction in the theater where I watched the movie. Welcome to Bollywood, Karan, and all the best for the journey ahead.
