Do Aur Do Pyaar Movie Review

Do aur Do Pyaar Movie is the original remake of the Hollywood film “The Lovers”. The movie is Directed by Shirsha Guha Thakurta. The direction is quite simple and even though it’s adapted from a foreign film, the director has Indianized the film beautifully. The main cast consists of Vidya Balan, Pratik Gandhi, Illeana D’Cruz and Sendhil Ramamurthy.

The story of the movie is about a dysfunctional couple (Vidya Balan and Pratik Gandhi) being married for quite a few years, 12 to be precise, and as all couples in real life they have grown apart with less communication between and they both end up having affairs (Vidya Balan with sendhil Ramamurthy and Pratik Gandhi with Illeana D’Cruz). Both are making plans with their respective partners and plan to get divorced soon. But eventually when they do get a chance to communicate with each other later in the movie (Vidya Balan and Pratik gandhi) they realize they once again are falling in love.

Vidya Balan as always is radiant and does a terrific job. I have noticed this a lot of times, she seems to shines when there are dramatic and confrontational sequences, to give you some examples would be – Begum Jaan, Parineeta, Shakuntala devi and more. Pratik Gandhi’s chemistry with Vidya is electrifying. Ileana DCruz plays a difficult role with ease. She proves that she can score big time if given an opportunity. Sendhil Ramamurthy is dashing as ever and lends able support. His screen time, however, is limited. The four main characters and their flaws and strengths are etched out in a nuanced and real manner.

I think this movie works because of a relatable plot and the chemistry that Pratik Gandhi and Vidya Balan have. But the second half is lengthy and dragging. The crucial pre-climax dialogue goes on and on and should have been curtailed for a better impact. Moreover, the focus is on the married couple while the other two get a raw deal. The makers also skip an important plot point in the climax. Lastly, the sound is not clear in a few dialogues. The music is in sync with the film’s mood.

Overall, in my opinion, the movie is very entertaining and is worth the watch for sure.
