Dil Toh Baccha Hai is a slice of life film of three men... Naren Ahuja, Nikhil and Abhay Suri and their encounters with love! The film takes a funny look at love and the extent to which people will go to avoid it or to achieve it!

“Walk into this one with no expectations and you might walk out mildly amused.”

Having resigned to the fact that comedies are a dead genre in bollywood, Dil toh Baccha Hai Jee might just amuse you. Else, its safe to steer clear of this insipid farce by National Award winning director Madhur Bhandarkar.
A divorcee ( Ajay), a womanizer (Emraan) and a virgin ( Vaidya) are out looking to get laid in what could definitely be called the most lame attempt at making a sex comedy-cum-rom-com. How they meet and woo the three ladies is what forms the rest of this unsparingly pathetic film.
Every scene, every actor on screen, seems to be in the pursuit of the Guinness Record for the worst acting ever. The story line, which opens with promise, meanders down into an incredibly tasteless gag, with the now done to death gay jokes and innuendos. Ajay seems to believe that a hit-in-the-balls-expression works in a comedy while Emraan chasing anything in a skirt is as old and stale as last years Christmas party leftovers. Vaidya alone provides with some genuine moments of laughter in this otherwise drab and dry movie.
As for the three leading ladies, the less said the better. In a film about three desperate men, the girls would obviously be nothing more than eye candy. Shehnaaz though, excels in outdoing the other two at hamming it, with her constant screeching and look-how-irritating-I-am brand of screen presence.
Madhur Bhandarkar tried to do something different here, yet he hasnt really moved away form his formulaic school of film making which we have seen in Fashion, Traffic Signal or Page 3. There are innumerable insufferable side characters, while the story is forever on a hyperbole. A total lack of structure and coherence is evident in the treatment, as is a complete lack of imagination and creativity. The film suffers from an overdose of sex. Crude sexual humor is a delicate art and when handled with insensitivity, can lead to disastrous consequences like DTBHJ. Dialogue after dialogue is laced with in-your-face raunchiness leaving the audience a tad too embarrassed and red faced.
Really, is it that difficult to make a laugh worthy comedy these days?
