Storyline

Vikas comes from a poor family, and is attending college so that he can complete his studies, get a job, and financially look after himself and his dad. He meets with wealthy Asha at this college, and after a few misunderstandings, both fall in love. Vikas' dad passes during the exams, and Vikas leaves to attend the funeral, and is unable to complete his studies.

Quite watchable, nothing great
11 September 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

I really appreciate Raj Khosla as a director. His films had good stories and they were of different genres (within the parameters of mainstream Hindi cinema of course). His suspense thrillers remain the most memorable, but he has made several other noteworthy pictures. Do Badan is unfortunately not one of them. It is a Hindi melodrama, which is not bad but quite typical and predictable. The first half is quite watchable; it is the second half which drastically drags down. It is overdone and at times quite tedious. The problem is mainly with the script, which is unconvincing and hard to believe. For one, the leading hero Vikas does not want to recover his eyesight after he's lost it in an accident. Now that is just another cliché, and his self-victimising attitude really got on my nerves. There are several other such instances of high-melodrama and unbelievable proceedings. Anyway, towards the end the film does improve a bit, and is more interesting, for what it's worth. The film has some good songs, but some of them are too whiny, even if that's what goes well with this kind of story.

Where acting goes, as one can expect, Manoj Kumar is let down by the script but does well at times. Asha Parekh has never been a favourite of mine, frankly, and she is okay here though at times she does very well. Manmohan Krishna is good as her uncle. Pran is always good in villainous parts, so no surprises here. Simi Garewal steals the show with her limited and yet ever so graceful presence. Just the first scene in which she appears on-screen--walking through the hospital's corridors, graciously greeting her colleagues and eventually meeting Vikas to try and encourage him--is an impressive introduction which is naturally done, and it stayed in my mind despite being just one-minute long! The film sadly does not dig enough into her personal story, but her expressions in just a few scenes here and there convey a lot of it, and that's a feat. But then the film ends on a particularly tragic and embarrassing note, which makes me conclude that Do Badan is an average film which has its moments but deserves no more than one watch, that too for lovers of this type of movies.
