On the whole, DASVIDANIYA is engrossing in parts. While the first hour works well, it’s the second part that turns pale due to its slow pacing and a not-as-tight screenplay. Sure, the film has the merits, but it will have to rely on a strong word of mouth to stay afloat.
Starting off on an inspired note, Dasvidaniya loses some of its steam in its second half; but when it’s not trying to beat its own chest about what an honorable film it is, it’s actually quite poignant.
I’ll go with three out of five for director Shashant Shah’s Dasvidaniya. It’s emotional and sure to leave you teary-eyed. Watch it, but take your tissue box with you.
This quiet little film touches and moves you with its elegant dekko on the highs and lows of ordinary, middle class life. But more than all this, it impresses you with its talented line-up of performances. If Vinay Pathak pays a tribute to Raj Kapoor’s shuffling tramp, then Saurabh Shukla, Ranvir Shorey, Rajat Kapoor, Sarita Joshi, Neha Dhupia are all effective in their little cameos.
It’s a sad sad sad world. Mousy man at the age of 37 is told that he doesn’t have many more days to continue with his dull-dull-dull existence. So, he draws up a kind of a laundry list of things to do. Alas, entertainment is not one of them.
Dasvidaniya is not the worst thing to hit cinema screens over the past few weeks and neither is it one of the best. One just can’t help feeling that a film with a message as deeply important to every living person as this one could have attempted to be a little more imaginative.
