Review: Do Lafzon Ki Kahani

Do Lafzon Ki Kahani

Do Lafzon Ki Kahani

Genre: Drama, Romance
Duration: 127 minutes
Language: Hindi
India Release Date: 10-JUN-2016
Pick-D-Flick Rating: 2 on 5 (Bad But Not Terrible)

Plot:
Centered on ex-mixed martial arts artist Sooraj (Randeep Hooda) and sculptor artist Jenny (Kajal Aggarwal). Their fate intertwines when their past are revealed in their blooming relationship.

Overall Review: Adapted from korean film “Always”, Do Lafzon Ki Kahani fails to deliver as Romantic Action Entertainment. Deepak Tijori (Director) & Girish Dhamija (Script Writer) has made few changes from the original adaptation to suit the tastes of the local audience. However script is highly predictable and it fails to hold your attention. Film drags and takes the entire first half to build characters and love story...

Plot:
A grandfather, police officer and a priest join hands to investigate and find a missing child.

Overall Review: Based on korean film: Montage, Te3n takes you into an old man’s journey of the search for truth. Ribhu Dasgupta’s directorial is a suspense thriller set in Kolkata. Te3n featrures industry’s best actors Amitabh Bachchan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui & Vidya Balan in pivotal role. Sadly, movie lacks all the punches of thriler and mystery mainly due to the glitches in script and the thrills. The story or the screenplay don’t set your pulse rates rising or heartbeats racing, but lethargically crawl towards the climax...
