Two Line Reviews - #398

Movie: Do Dooni Chaar (Hindi,2010)

Plot: A middle-class family is influenced by family and neighbours to move up the social ladder. When they get nearly tempted to take the illegal route, better sense prevails and the respectful family chugs along!

What Works?
  • The casting and the characterisation work! A typical middle class family with their own set of wants and problems is captured well.
  • Rishi Kapoor is marvelous essaying the role of the father with authoritative spontaneity! Giving him able company are Neetu Singh and the daughter,son pair.
  • Unrealistic expectations are shown tastefully sprinkled with humour and that too helps.
  • Decisions taken by Rishi when his children make the mistakes are special.
What Doesn't?
Unwanted songs and a pretty below average climax are let downs.

Tribute to those proud middle-class families!
