Director Sooraj Barjatya's Bollywood movie "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" (PRDP) starring Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor in the lead roles has received mixed reviews from the audience.
"Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" is a romantic drama film, which has been written and directed by Sooraj Barjatya. This much-talked about family entertainer revolves around the story of a charitable, happy-go-lucky man Prem, who embarks on a mission to meet a generous princess Maithili, who helps people.
Superstar Salman Khan has played the role of Prem in "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo". Actress Sonam Kapoor, who is paired up with Salman for the first time, has essayed the role of Maithili. Neil Nitin Mukesh, Anupam Kher, Armaan Kohli, Swara Bhaskar, Aashika Bhatia, Deepak Dobriyal and Sanjay Mishra are in the supporting cast. All the actors have delivered fantastic performances, say the audience.
Besides scoring music for its soundtracks, Himesh Reshammiya has also composed background score for "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" with Sanjoy Chowdhury, while V Manikandan cranked camera. The movie has brilliant production values. The amazing music, picturisation, well choreography of dance, brilliant art direction, beautiful costumes and exotic locales are big attractions in the technical front. But its slow paced narrationa and too many songs mar the beauty of the film, add viewers.
We bring you viewers verdict on the movie shared on Twitter. Here is the live update of "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" movie review by audience:

Watched #PremRatanDhanPayo...a soulful movie that takes you into the magical 90s romance, action and drama....loved it Salman Khan is back as his flagship role #Prem...after long he plays a soulful role...Sooraj Barjatya truly brings out his best performances Sonam Kapoor plays her part to perfection as Maithili and Anupam Kher inspires awe as he plays the quintessential wise old man... Overall #PremRatanDhanPayo is an amazing movie to watch this festive season if you enjoyed the soulful films of the 90s.

#PremRatanDhanPayo will be loved by family audiences; though youth will find it boring in portions! #PremRatanDhanPayo overall i feel if the screenplay was as good as mpk or hssh.. and #music as strong as mpk, hahk or hssh - sooraj would've created the highest grossing film of Indian history.. but who knows sallu's bullish phase makes it happen this time!
Kunal M Shah @iamkunalmshah
So #PremRatanDhanPayo is a blockbuster... Big sets... Performances #SalmanKhan show all the way... Hit Music... All works... Superhit! Who says that the old school filmmaking does not work in the age of realistic cinema... #PRDP will prove all wrong @BeingSalmanKhan
After the first 20 minutes theres a #salmankhan cuteness tht starts to take over , even the dialogues so not #bhai ibsay again #cute #prdp The only drawback so far for me in #prdp has been the songs ..But #salman in his new half hindi half english avataar rox As far as the story well #princeandthepauper if uve read it , #prdp is a modern day fairytale .. Completr with horse drawn carriages , maharanis and yuvrajs In most #salman films one doesnt need more than him .. In this well u cnt really see beyond that too #prdp special mention for the #stylint though of #armaan , #neil and #sonam .. Super royal the second half especially the last 30 mins is rather dragged .. so thats a bit of a dampner #PRDPDay but otherwise #SalmanKhan roxx but the emotions work really well and even though this isnt my cup of tea but i did enjoy myself mostly #rajshri #PRDPDay 4 stars for #SalmanKhan the #costumes the grandness and #bhai ki extra cuteness in the 1st half #PremRatanDhanPayo

Its INTERVAL and Audience enjoyed #PRDP thoroughly. #SalmanKhan entry, Rescue scene & interval point scene are Brilliant! #PRDPDay #PRDPDay Sooraj Barjatya is flawless in bringing out the purity & simplicity in the loveable Prem @SonamTillani @CA_Richa07 @Salman_ki_sena Kudos to Barjatya for Redefining Rajshri touch-culture of a typical Rajshri film but also freshness of modern era. #PRDPDay @CA_Richa07 Everything is just so Perfect,Grand & full of life! What we loved most is that its a Rajshri film but a 2015's #salman film. #PRDPDay

Half way through #PRDP Bored out of my mind. Why the hell r there so many songs. Salman is over doing his goody boy act.Hope better 2nd half Visually its all nice and grand. But its so damn cheesy and Sonam kapoor irritates more than ever. Sallu bhai should have signed Deepika Didn't think i'd see so much action in a Sooraj Barjatya movie. Well you know this sequence is better than the entire movie. #PRDP My favourite part of #PRDP was the Climax. Because its the closest part of the movie where we can finally leave the hall. REVIEW #PRDP Everything looks good till your overwhelmed visually. Salman is a candy floss version of himself. The film is way too long 2/5 Sonam irritates in yet another movie. Why they chose her i don't know. Too many songs. Unrealistic plot solutions. Bajrangi is best of 2015 Ok maybe I'm being harsh cuz of my high expectations. PRDP is boring. BUT has entertaining sequences and colourful songs.Salman is fun.2.5/5
Her transformation from a khoobsurat daughter in law to a Raajkumari herself @sonamakapoor is so amazing. screen presence fab #prdp #prdpday they both look fab in #JabTumChaho @sonamakapoor @BeingSalmanKhan #prdp #PRDPDay interval, story on a interesting point, @BeingSalmanKhan & @sonamakapoor so far so good, direction good. Cinematography fab #prdp #PRDPDay it's a treat for the families @BeingSalmanKhan @sonamakapoor @AnupamPkher gives u a beautiful love story this holiday season #prdp #PRDPDay Interval: @NeilNMukesh ensures you hate him to the core, proves his performance's grace. @SwaraBhaskar is as usual, Great #prdp #PRDPDay

#PremRatanDhanPayo review: With this movie @sonamakapoor takes a giant leap. Excellent performances. Trademark Sooraj Barjatya entertainer. Smartly family packaged entertainer packs just about everything. @BeingSalmanKhan in top form. BLOCKBUSTER ★★★★
PREM COMING HOME @BeingKundan
Watched magnum opus #PremRatanDhanPayo. Incredible.. All I can say is payo ji payo maine Prem Ratan Dhan Payo! Go watch it with ur family!
Prince Prithvi @PrincePrithvi
Interval ~ Can't believe i actually liked 1st half of Sooraj Bartajya movie, Salman Khan is full dose of ENTERTAINMENT #PRDP By far the only problem of #PRDP is the irritating songs of Himesh..baaki sab mast hai
Raj Ronith @rajdandy143
Watched #PremRatanDhanPayo at it's awesome movie !! Guy's catch it on theater's !! @BeingSalmanKhan on double role @sonamakapoor is awesome #PremRatanDhanPayo is best movie watched with good story and full fledged bollywood style....!! @BeingSalmanKhan and @sonamakapoor pair
#PremRatanDhanPayo is a clean family entertainer that focuses on family values and relationships and Salman Bhai is in full form #PRDP
Hud Hud Dabangg @HudHud_Dabangg
Interval: Entertainment quotient is more than Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Salman Khan at his funniest best. #PremRatanDhanPayo Second half is disappointing 2 super awesome performance in an year. Best year for Salman as an actor ?? I personally enjoyed watching Prem Dilwale more than Pawan. First Half: PRDP > BB Second Half: BB >> PRDP On just entertainment and connect. Agree ? I loved the first half very much. Bajrangi Bhaijaan as a film is superior though. Unfair to compare with a masterpiece. Now Salman has all the records except the lifetime one. PRDP - Biggest opener of all time.

#PremRatanDhanPayo is a family film which you shouldn't watch with your family. #PRDP #PRDPDay

#PRDPDay : Salman Khan shines yet again with #PRDP , he is super entertaining , characterisation of Prem Dilwala is done Brilliantly! #PRDPDay : It is one of the most finest & Beautiful Film ever made in Bollywood. Each & Every Frame looks so huge & enchanting! Sooraj Deserves Applause for what he had done! Totally justice to title PRDP , This duo is totally adorable! Salman is striking continously this year , First #BajrangiBhaijaan & Now #PremRatanDhanPayo , Now I can say that Sallu is finally back! #NeilNitinMukesh did an absolute job in #PRDP

Sowmya Rao @sowmyarao_
Highly regretting watching #PremRatanDhanPayo. Now I owe @vinaykesari + family for making him sit through this garbage, GARBAGE movie. Nothing like what I'd expected from #Barjatiya. Terrible music, boring screenplay and sickly sweet romance. #PremRatanDhanPayo
Bipulendra Adhikari @bipul100

1st half of Prem Ratan Dhan Payo & I am pleasantly surprised. Most charming is film's humour and Salman Khan's chemistry wth Sonam #PRDP
Catching the 1st show of Salman Khan's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo at Mumbai's Metro cinema & the occupancy here is 80%! For a 9 am show! #PRDPDay
@BeingSalmanKhan has delivered wonderful performance. #PremRatanDhanPayo has very good script and it is a perfect Diwali treat for family audience.

Most enjoyable 1st hour #SalmanKhan 's entry greeted w/ Ceetis in this outfit! Rockstar dialogues #PremRatanDhanPayo After #BajrangiBhaijaan & #PremRatanDhanPayo our #SalmanKhan will go down in history as "Hanuman Bhakt",speaks volumes of Indias "tolerance" The song #PremRatanDhanPayo is a riot of colours, flowers used to create magnificence that can only be seen in Barjatya films! Magical I can't believe I heard the word butt in a Sooraj Barjatya film and it's not beeped and censored! OMG

1st half of Prem Ratan Dhan Payo & I am pleasantly surprised. Most charming is film's humour and Salman Khan's chemistry wth Sonam #PRDP Few films ve the power to stir a whirlwind of emotions within you. Despite my cynicism, happy to report that i m moved by PRDP's innocence. Easily one of Salman Khan's best performances, Barjatyas have a winner at hand with Prem Ratan Dhan Payo
Prem ❤ [^_^] @Being_Anki
Watching #PRDP ... It's awesome.. Superb.. Mind blowing movie.. Wanna Watch again and again... #RishtoKiKahani
