London Dreams directed by Vipul Shah is a film with intense emotion and relationship. This film tells the story of two brother-like friends and their destined dreams living life for 'Music'. The scale of London Dreams is gigantic and the execution of concerts sweeps you off your feet. In terms of execution, it wouldn't be wrong to state that London Dreams is amongst Vipul Shah's most accomplished works to date.
Arjun [Ajay] and Manu [Salman Khan] are childhood friends living in a Punjab village. Arjun passionately loves music and dreams of becoming a musical sensation and perform at London's Wembley Stadium but his family hates music as it was the reason for his grand father's death. But as after his father's death, Arjun's uncle [Om Puri] brings him along with him to London, he runs away to pursue his dream.
On the other hand, Mannu grows up in the village turning out to be a good for nothing bloke who makes money by playing his band at marriage ceremonies. Meanwhile Arjun chases his dream and forms a band with two Pakistani brothers Wasim[Aditya Roy Kapoor] and Zoheb [Ranvijay Singh] and Priya [Asin]. When he realizes he is getting attracted to Priya he decides to hide his feelings and focus on music and only reveal to them when he fulfills his dream.
Manu, in one of his conversations on the telephone, informs Arjun that he is getting married and Arjun flies down to Punjab! Here, he hears Manu singing and gets Mannu to London to join his band. But that he realizes turns out to be his biggest mistake. The naturally talented Mannu scores over Arjun in every department unintentionally and goes on to become a bigger sensation that a dedicated and hardworking Arjun. Jealousy starts creeping in for Arjun but the final nail in the coffin comes when he sees even Priya falling in love with Mannu. What sinister plan Arjun throws on an unsuspecting Mannu to destroy his musical career and what it all leads to forms the rest of the film.
Vipul Shah has garnished the film with comvincing concert scenes. Musical score by Shankar-Ehasan-Loy is quite commendable. Cinematography by Sejal Shah is marvelous.
Performance wise, Ajay Devgan is brilliant. His chemistry with Salman is superb. Asin is looking gorgeous and okay with her performance. She is admirable and pairs off very well with Salman. Salman Khan once again steals the show. After his previous realease Wanted, this is his yet another finest performance. One can say this is only Salman Khan who alone turns the table for London Dreams and make it worth a watch. Om Puri has a brief role. Aditya Roy Kapoor is very good. Ranvijay Singh doesn't get much to do.
On the whole, London Dreams is a very well made film by Vipul Shah with excellent starcast and superb performances. This film really describe the meaning of friendship. At the box-office the film will get a positive response.
