Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is yet another association between Sooraj Barjatya and Salman Khan. This is their fourth collaboration after Maine Pyar Kiya, Hum Apke Hain Koun and Hum Saath Saath Hai. Like all other movies of Sooraj Barjatya, this movie also focuses on family values of unity and brotherhood.
This movie revolves around an NGO worker Prem (Salman Khan) who falls in love with a gorgeous royal princess and NGO head Maithili (Sonam Kapoor). He then embarks on a journey to meet the royal princess. The princess is all set to marry a royal prince Vijay (Salman/double role).
Little did Prem know that he would be caught up in a royal dysfunctional family dispute? Vijay is fighting for his life in a gruesome attack plotted by his own brother Niranjan (Neil). Vijay’s sisters also do not stay with him because they are his step sisters. Diwan (Anupam) who is loyal to Vijay then decides to seek help from Prem to take the place of Vijay until he recovers.
Prem who is happy go lucky person and has good values agrees and decides to help. This is an ideal situation for him as he gets to live the royal life and be close to his love Maithili.
Prem realises that there is dispute within the royal family and then decides to confront Vijay’s sisters and decides to give them their share of the property. Meanwhile, Maithili falls in love with Prem thinking he is the royal prince Vijay.
Things turn when Niranjan discovers the truth about Prem. He also finds the secret hideout of Vijay where he is being treated and abducts him.
The rest of the movie you will see how love and respect for relationships can change any person.
Performance wise Salman Khan is back with a bang with his ever loved character Prem, Sonam looks gorgeous throughout the movie and has acted well. The rest of the cast has also performed well.
Like all Sooraj Barjatya movies, this one is full of melodious music and has been directed well.
The sets are humongous and exude royalty. The entire movie is watchable and is something different from Sooraj Barjayta while keeping his pet family value system theme intact.
