Dus out of Dus for Dus Kahaniyaan
12 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'm generally very keen in films with multiple story line like Darna Mana Hai and Salaam-e-Ishq so that's why I intended to watch Dus Kahaniyaan. Before I was going to watch it I thought that only a couple of stories were appealing but every single story was good with unforgettable endings. The film was under 2 hours and the average timing of each story was about 11 minutes so it wasn't to long or short. All of the stories were different from each other and shows that if you do something bad then something bad will happen to you and your fate changes by the choices you make. They had a message that was meaningful and we can learn from them. The best songs are the title song Dus Kahaniyaan and Jaaniye. Each of the stories has a name and they are about:

Matrimony: Mr. & Mrs. Sarin are a happy married couple. The devoted wife goes every Thursday to visit her aunt, or does she? Is it all good in paradise? Does betrayal hang on the door? Does love make fools of us all?

High on the Highway: The Highway symbolized their companionship; their tacit love, but its unpredictable & volatile turns would radically change their lives. Does endless freedom have its boundaries? Does the recklessness of life have an end?

Pooranmashi: A doting mother's only daughter is about to get married; she would do anything to make her happy, but an impulsive act of hers is about to lead their lives to drastic consequences. Pooranmashi is about women whose unconditional love makes for a story of emotional power.

Strangers in the Night: Every anniversary, they told the other a secret; this year it's the wife's turn. She begins narrating an interesting encounter with a stranger at the railway station waiting room. Are all secrets meant to be shared? Is the ultimate dare to tell the truth? Will you be deceived if you trust too much or will you live torment if you do not trust enough?

Zahir: A writer is driven to madness after he makes a starting discovery about the woman he loves. Is everything always as it seems? Does mystery lie under the surface of every life?

Lovedale: When Anuya met an old woman wearing a single earring in a train, little did she know that this chance meeting was about to change her life. Do you believe in fate? Do you believe in Destiny? Do you believe one moment can change your life forever?

Sex on the Beach: Dino picks a worn out book on the beach & its character comes alive into a breathtaking woman. They have a great time but everything changes. What surprises does this mystery woman have in store for Dino? Does every dream have a price?

Rice Plate: When a hungry devout Hindu woman's only meal is claimed by a Muslim man, what will she do? Will she snatch it or share it? Will she defy her beliefs to support her hunger? Rice Plate is an irresistible treat about the moments that bring us together. Open your hearts. There's room.

Gubbare: After an argument with her husband in the bus, Anita sits next to an intriguing man holding 14 red balloons. There unfolds a journey within a journey into this man's past uncovering the key to one of the most important lessons in life. What is the mystery behind these balloons? It's a story which will live in our heart forever.

Rise N Fall: Through an internal conflict between an underworld don and his best friend, we weave through a stylish game of friendship & betrayal. In never before seen action sequences, Dus Kahaniyaan's Rise & Fall is a story of two friends united as brothers but divided by power.
