The ApunKaChoice movie review of Yeh Dooriyan. Here’s a film that tries to be serious but ends up being unintentionally funny, right from the start to its end. In fact, Yeh Dooriyan is a sort of film one can watch just to derive some pleasure of witnessing the actors make a complete fool of themselves, mouthing the lines that are so downright silly that you wish them to be preserved for posterity.
So you have a divorced, 30-something, mother-of-two Simmi (Deepshikha) who’s surrounded by fat and petite friends that make her look gorgeous. Simmi is a choreographer and is open to the idea of settling down again, provided the man accepts her along with the two kids.
Raj (Kaishav Arora), a young model, falls for her and slowly cements a place in Simmi’s life. Admission of love comes eventually, but their marriage won’t be easy. Enters the vamp of a mother (Kunika) who rains down on Simmi’s parade and puts a premature end to her love affair with Raj. Is there a happy end to this love story?
That Yeh Dooriyan is written, produced and directed by its lead actress Deepshikha makes you suspect that it might end up as a vanity parade of a lady with money to burn, but lots to learn. Truth be told, it comes pretty close to that. The whole concept of a divorced woman falling in love with a younger guy and facing opposition from society reeks of corniness intended to evoke sympathy and compassion for her, and Deepshika verily revels in playing the part of a beautiful, successful, sexy but lonely woman any man would covet and pine for.
The treatment to the story is amateurish and the actors ham like there’s no tomorrow.
In fact, Yeh Dooriyan is so bad that it should be seen to be believed.
