Another Ripoff But Some Great Performances by the Women
15 December 2004 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

In general, the movie is about a seemingly happily married couple (but yet there are hints of a hidden secret) who's life is interrupted when an ex lover contacts the husband and decides to take him to Goa to visit their son about whom the husband was not aware of until recently. Confusing? Neither of them has seen the son and the ex-girlfriend has just released herself a mental institution after 12 years.

Some DVD versions have an incorrect synopsis in the back of the cover. It was originally a misleading preview written by one of the worst movie critics Trash Adarsh on his website Indiafm. The movie actually is completely different from what he states. Ria wasn't schizophrenic. She had borderline personality disorder with bipolar symptoms. If you're wondering which movie the director shamelessly ripped-off, then that would be 'Forever Lulu'. Shashi Ranjan proves to be a pathetic director for ruthlessly plagiarizing almost every frame of 'Forever Lulu'.

'Dobara' is slightly slow-paced during the first hour. In the second half, the screenplay loses focus by introducing a sudden twist. It's also weird that Raveena's character all of a sudden does not need any medication for her chronic condition. Such flaws are amateurish and could have easily been avoided. 'Dobara' would have been a more interesting flick had it only stayed focused on the three main characters. The strength of the movie is the superb acting by the women. Both Raveena Tandon and Mahima Chaudhry gave outstanding performances. The chemistry and display of ambivalence between them is amazing. Jackie Shroff is boring at times otherwise he is okay at best. He's a miscast and a too old to be paired opposite Mahima and Raveena in a role like this. The songs are likable and appropriately fitted into the film as it provides a break from the slow pace. I hope at least those weren't ripped off.

Overall, Mahima Chaudhry and Raveena Tandon's performances deserve to be acknowledged but Shashi Ranjan gets no positive praise from me because he is nothing but a hack.
