#016 #Dor is a fantastic film that leaves you spellbound with its unique storytelling methodology, fabulous performances (#GulPanag, #AyeshaTakia and #ShreyasTalpade), incredible music, great cinematography and direction that you would like to give a standing ovation.

‘Dor’ is a landmark cinema that entertains as well as have the courage to tell a different story. The bond between two women (Zeenat and Meera) from two different cultures, religions and agonies tied by the ‘Dor’ (Bond) or Empathy and Friendship.  The film is a fine example of how a complicated story (By #NageshKukoonoor, #TARazzak and #MirAliHusain ) can be told in the simplest possible manner.

The script, the story and the characters take the spotlight and the sets, though picturesque add to the plot instead of overshadowing it. Another wonderful aspect is the rural setting of the story as opposed to an urbane or yuppie backdrop. There are so many stories across the length and breath of India that need to be noticed, shared and told. The most prominent part was the dialogues –

1. “Kisi aur ke jeene marne ka faisla main kyu loon? Mujhe koi Farishta nahi banna.

    Jo tu kar rahi hai wo ek insaan hi kar sakta hai, Farishton ki kismat ye sab kahan?”

2. “Tumhari quraan hi toh kehti hai naa aankh ke badle aankh, khoon ke badle khoon”

     Wo hi quraan ye bhi batati hai ki maaf kar dena badle se badh kar hai”

and many more.

Dor is a must-watch for all Indians; the core message transcends religion, community, strata and gender and it has a superb anti-climax. By the end it values life and freedom more than revenge and vengeance.

On the whole,if you have not watched this movie, you have missed out on a a classic.
