London Dreams movie has been directed by Vipul Shah who already has worked with the most famous movies, Namastey London and Singh Is Kinng. Vipul Shah always tries to give some national pride in his movie just like Puneet Sira.

Ajay Devgan is a professional musician who has dream of London. Ajay Devgan has acted as Arjun in London Dreams movie. He wants to fulfill his grandfather’s dreams of London.

Arjun establishes a band in London with the help of Zoheb and Wasim. Zoheb and Wasim was also brother who had duped in Pakistan to travel to London. Priya (Asin Thottumkal) becomes a dancer of Arjun’s band in London.

On the other hand, Mannu plays music in weddings in his village to survive his life. Soon, Arjun come back to village and take away Mannu to London. But he soon realizes that Mannu is the biggest threat and obstacle to his own ambitions.

Mannu had gotten an inherent musical gift in his life and irreverent style of performing music. These style makes him instant darling of the crowds. This name and fame has not been taken by Arjun in many years but he achieves overnight.

Arjun’s jealous has gotten stronger place when Mannu wins his secret love, Priya. Now, Arjun has planned to destroy his best friend.

London Dreams movie has introduced a big drama in musical life. It is the biggest musical movie of Bollywood. It is a philosophical movie towards life. Ajay Devgan is in same role of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam movie and Salman is also on the same character.

Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy has tried to put some different music in each song of London Dreams. Lyric of London Dreams are also very different in each songs. Headstarts Film UK Ltd. has produced the movie. Sejal Shah is the cinematographer of London Dreams.

Vipul Amrutlal Shah has delivered his technically best product till date with London Dreams. But apart from the technique its high on emotions as well. Vipul gives apt time for character development for each of his main protagonists. Devoid of unnecessary melodrama he captures the emotional moments with aplomb. Sejal Shah’s camerawork is of international standards. The night scenes are superbly lit.

Ajay is excellent in his part and one can see the best villain awards coming his way at the awards for this year. Salman seems to be enjoying himself and is extremely likeable. Though Asin is most of the time relegated to the background she puts up a nice act. Her chemistry with Salman works. Popular VJs Aditya and Ranvijay of Roadies fame make a good debut. Om Puri in a small part impresses as usual.

Amongst the flaws, the climax is overstretched and the Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy’s music not really up to the mark, especially the climax concert numbers. The song that comes after everything is over is too slow and a rousing number would have made for an apt grand finale.
