It has a stellar star solid and the trailer signifies that it’s in the identical zone as LIPSTICK UNDER MY BURKHA. So does DOLLY KITTY AUR WOH CHAMAKTE SITARE handle to entertain and interact? Or does it fail to entice? Let’s analyse.
DOLLY KITTY AUR WOH CHAMAKTE SITARE is the story of two cousin sisters attempting to outlive in an rising metropolis. Radha aka Dolly (Konkona Sensharma) is married to Amit (Aamir Bashir) and has two youngsters – Pappu (Kalp Singh) and Bharat (Hearty Singh).

Dolly in the meantime is unhappy along with her intercourse life and he or she will get interested in Osman Ansari (Amol Parashar), a younger supply boy. What occurs subsequent kinds the remainder of the movie.
Alankrita Srivastava’s story is respectable. The try to make a touch upon patriarchy and the ills present in our society is praiseworthy. But Alankrita Srivastava’s screenplay doesn’t do justice to the plot. There’s no correct move to the writing and issues occur within the movie at random. Also, there are far too many subplots and in no way of them impress. Also, just a few 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 course is common. She was in a much better type in LIPSTICK UNDER MY BURKHA, presumably additionally as a result of she was geared up with a much better script. In DOLLY KITTY AUR WOH CHAMAKTE SITARE, the script is just not watertight, with only some scenes actually making the influence. Moreover, the most important downside with the movie is that Alankrita tries too laborious to make the movie as scandalous as doable. Almost 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 along with her lover, Kitty is promoting romance for a dwelling, Shazia is having short-term relationships whereas Dolly’s work colleague Juhi (Pavleen Gujral) doubles up as an escort. Moreover, 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. But 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 neglect, 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 first half is sort of scattered and one gained’t complain as one assumes that the director is attempting to clarify the setting and build up. But the identical occurs within the second half as properly. On the positive facet, just a few scenes are properly executed like Kitty’s first day on the name heart, Dolly’s confrontation along 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 technique the occasions unfold are tough to digest. To see all the principle characters of the movie, a few of them from totally different cities or components of the city, assembling on the similar place is laughable. If this was a Priyadarshan movie, it could have made still sense. But in a practical movie like this, it’s an excessive amount of. The movie’s concluding scene is good however not sufficient to boost the influence.
The performances nevertheless 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 greatest foot ahead and leaves an enormous mark. Aamir Bashir is reliable. Amol Parashar is endearing whereas Vikrant Massey is first-rate in a supporting position. Kubbra Sait is sort of good and it’s excessive time she is given lead roles in movies. Karan Kundrra is respectable in a small position. Kalp Shah has a difficult position however pulls it off properly. Hearty Singh will get no scope. Neelima Azeem is great 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 heart) 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 delicate and efficient. John Jacob Payyapalli’s cinematography is neat and properly accomplished. Tiya Tejpal’s manufacturing design is lifelike and in sync with the movie’s setting. Same goes for Rohit Chaturvedi’s costumes. Charu Shree Roy’s enhancing is satisfactory however too fast at locations.
On the entire, DOLLY KITTY AUR WOH CHAMAKTE SITARE has an necessary underlying message however the try to forcefully scandalize and politicize the narrative takes away the influence. This very cause, nevertheless, may also make the movie a speaking level.
