Alankrita Srivastava’s story is respectable. The try and make a touch upon patriarchy and the ills present in our society is praiseworthy. However Alankrita Srivastava’s screenplay doesn’t do justice to the plot. There’s no correct circulation to the writing and issues occur within the movie at random. Additionally, there are far too many subplots and in no way of them impress. Additionally, a number of plot factors don’t have a logical conclusion, particularly the one about Dolly’s dream flat. Alankrita Srivastava’s dialogues are sharp and to the purpose.
Alankrita Srivastava’s path is common. She was in a much better type in LIPSTICK UNDER MY BURKHA, probably additionally as a result of she was geared up with a much better script. In DOLLY KITTY AUR WOH CHAMAKTE SITARE, the script will not be watertight, with just a few scenes actually making the impression. Furthermore, the largest downside with the movie is that Alankrita tries too arduous to make the movie as scandalous as potential. Virtually everybody within the movie is having a wild life – Dolly is fantasizing a couple of younger boy and stealing cash from workplace for her dream flat, her mom (Neelima Azeem) had left her husband to be together with her lover, Kitty is promoting romance for a residing, Shazia is having short-term relationships whereas Dolly’s work colleague Juhi (Pavleen Gujral) doubles up as an escort. Furthermore, Dolly’s son Pappu is a cross dresser. Amit and Pradeep, in the meantime, even have their share of darkish secrets and techniques. The try right here is to not choose or be regressive. However when nearly all of the characters within the movie are having a scandalous double life, it turns into an excessive amount of to digest. And to not overlook, there’s additionally a political angle and that additional makes issues unconvincing.
DOLLY KITTY AUR WOH CHAMAKTE SITARE begins on an fascinating word and very quickly, we get acquainted with the characters of Dolly and Kitty and in addition their relationship with one another. The primary half is kind of scattered and one received’t complain as one assumes that the director is attempting to elucidate the setting and build up. However the identical occurs within the second half as properly. On the constructive aspect, a number of scenes are properly executed like Kitty’s first day on the name middle, Dolly’s confrontation together with her mom, the drama on the police station and Dolly and Kitty pouring their coronary heart out on the rooftop. One expects the climax to be smashing however the best way the occasions unfold are tough to digest. To see all the primary characters of the movie, a few of them from totally different cities or elements of the city, assembling on the identical place is laughable. If this was a Priyadarshan movie, it might have made nonetheless sense. However in a practical movie like this, it’s an excessive amount of. The movie’s remaining scene is nice however not sufficient to reinforce the impression.
The performances nonetheless save the day to an extent. Konkona Sensharma as all the time does very properly and will get into the pores and skin of her character. Bhumi Pednekar too places her finest foot ahead and leaves an enormous mark. Aamir Bashir is reliable. Amol Parashar is endearing whereas Vikrant Massey is first-rate in a supporting function. Kubbra Sait is kind of good and it’s excessive time she is given lead roles in movies. Karan Kundrra is respectable in a small function. Kalp Shah has a difficult function however pulls it off properly. Hearty Singh will get no scope. Neelima Azeem is superb although she seems in only one scene. Pavleen Gujral, Prabhat Raghunandan (Billa), Ghanshyam Pandey (Shahnawaz Pradhan), Nutan Surya (Nancy; old-aged worker within the name middle) and Brij Bhushan Shukla (property dealer) are okay.
The songs are forgettable. ‘Khwabida‘ will get registered a bit whereas ‘Neet Ve’, ‘Bimari’ and ‘Rap Battle’ fail to impress. Mangesh Dhakde’s background rating is refined and efficient. John Jacob Payyapalli’s cinematography is neat and properly executed. Tiya Tejpal’s manufacturing design is reasonable and in sync with the movie’s setting. Similar goes for Rohit Chaturvedi’s costumes. Charu Shree Roy’s modifying is satisfactory however too fast at locations.
