No one can deny the craze of cricket in India. Dil Bole Hadippa is a film that is shot to capture the vitality of the game, and the ambitions of a player, who wants to represent her pind.
But what should an exotic girl cricketer do when she wants to play for India when the men don't give her a chance? Yes, put on a beard and mustache and play like a man. This is what the movie is about. Veera becomes Veer to play for India in a match opposing Pakistan. 
Anurag Singh's Dil Bole Hadippa shows Punjab with its different colors, golden streams of grain, regional girls munching sugar cane, and all. The movie is a reverie of India's Dil- Punjab, having a perfect backdrop for snazzy music, partly a sports fiction, partly a love story, and slightly the funniest comedy.


The movie starts with Veera (Rani Mukherjee), a chirpy Punjabi kudi, hitting six sixes on six balls.

Veera dreadfully wishes to play for Aman Cup, a cricket match played every year between India and Pakistan. The Trophy has been in the hands of Pakistan for nine years. Anupam Kher, Indian teams supporter, is gloomy because his wife lives abroad, and his son Rohan(Shahid Kapoor) wishes to play for an English team. Faking a heart attack, the father calls son over. Rohan agrees to play for the Indian team and takes the responsibility of the team. Veera tries to give auditions for the team but is not allowed. So she impersonates a boy and gets entry into the team. What happens now is not new for someone who have been watching Bollywood movies.


Being a sports film, Dil Bole Hadippa shortfalls the intent and passion for the game like Lagaan or Chak de India. It is more of a romantic story.

What's there ?

1. The movie has an astonishing and an exciting end.
2. The movie is the story of an everyday girl. It encourages every girl to do what she want to do.
3. The cinematography is appealing.

What's not there?

1. The love scenes between Shahid and Rani shortfall passion. 
2. The supporting actors are wasted. 
3. The film could not manage to create a powerful tension in the audience.

Star performance:

The whole movie rests on Rani's shoulders, and she handles it very effectively; she gives a dazzling conduct by carrying both the characters comfortably. Shahid Kapoor 's performance was not up to the level that we expected from him but was okay. Anupam Kher and Dalip Tahil were fine. Poonam Dhillon, Rakhi Sawant, and Sherlyn Chopra are famished.


Overall Dil Bole Hadippa is a one-time watch movie that will entertain you to some extent.
