Dunki is very emotional and has a lot of humor, sometimes too much for one person to handle. It’s not a spoiler to say that the majority of the story takes place in flashback, as the trailer made it apparent that SRK will be portraying both a young and elderly man. We witness how Manu and Hardy first met, how they were drawn to one another while traveling to London on the Donkey flight—an illegal immigration route—and how they overcame various obstacles along the way.

After five years away from Sanju, Hirani has returned to directing. He makes sure to immerse us in his universe, which is full of love, heartbreaks, laughter, tears, hope, failure, and music that uplifts the spirit. There are some parts in Dunki that are impactful even just by using the background music or the lyrics.

As everyone is instructed by Gulati (Boman Irani), an English-speaking teacher, to memorize speaking exam patterns, Sukhi feels powerless because she is unable to discern subtleties in the language. On this front, though, the writing was seriously defective. The humor isn’t really organic, and the gags don’t really hit home.

Overall, Dunki is a movie that makes you smile so hard it hurts. In addition, it is a fantastic family movie that is sure to make you cry, so if you were unable to watch Animal with your family because of its glorified violence, you really should check it out.
