First things first!
Dus Tola starring Manoj Bajpai and Aarti Chabaria is a plain and simple story put together with resemblances to many a movies but the final outcome is boring and plain enough to put you off.
It' s actually the content and writing of the movie that' s very much erratic that it does not leaves a cinegoer convinced after leaving the auditorium.
Final word? Dus Tola is not at all good as far as the expectations were from the masses. It lacks spunk, avoid the same.
Let' s see what it has in the name of story in the pivotal word of Taran Adarsh
"Shankar [Manoj Bajpayee] is the much loved goldsmith of a quaint coastal town Sonapur. Shankar is head over heels in love with the town beauty, his cunning astrologer neighbour' s daughter Suvarnalata [Aarti Chhabria]. Needless to say, Shastri [Dilip Prabahvalkar], Suvarna' s father, is opposed to the budding romance."
"Suvarna cooks up a fool-proof plan to manipulate her father into accepting the alliance. She convinces a smitten Shankar to make a necklace of not one tola, not two tolas, but ten tolas of gold so he can show Shastri that he can take care of his daughter and he is a suitable husband for her. Shankar puts everything he has at stake and slogs day and night to make a necklace for his beloved."
"A shocking turn of events leaves Shankar flabbergasted. He feels cheated, but the truth is out soon."
Looks like a good plot but the saddest part is that the director has failed to execute it with ease the way it was written. If the climax is ridiculous, the writing is patchy, the direction is equally inconsistent. The unmelodious songs add to the length of the movie and irk a viewer big time.
What to speak about performances of such a cheesy movie like Dus Tola?
Manoj Bajpai is a confirmed miscast in the film. A younger artist would have been able to do and convince what Manoj lacks doing. Sadly, the leading lady, Aarti Chabaria does not looks convincing at all, though she tries hard to essay her role but the bad writing and awful dialogues puts her off.
On the whole, Dus Tola is a kind of flick that would like never to have arrived on the scene on left the scene without a whimper. It' s a wrong movie to opt for this weekend.
From ticket-window point of view, Dus Tola would be getting a strong competition from other releases of the week, especially Rakhta Charitra, which is currently enjoying rave reviews. The distributors and producers of Dus Tola are destined to curtail heavy losses.
Rating: * (Flop)
Verdict: Dus Tola won' t recover even its making costs!
