Storyline

37-year old Mumbai-based Amar Kaul lives a middle-classed lifestyle with his deaf and widowed mother, and is employed as an Accounts Manager with Suraj Pharmaceuticals. His boss, Dasgupta, who is always snacking, abuses him, and often makes him not only work late but also asks him to finish work at home. After going through a medical check-up for an upset stomach, he is told that he has third stage cancer and has only a few months to live. He then sets about to prepare a 10-item 'to do' list which include buying a car; visiting his friend, Dr. Rajiv Jhukla, in Russia; taking guitar lessons; confessing his true feelings to Neha Banot; as well a plan for getting back at Dasgupta. He does not know the shock and trauma that await him when he sets about to complete this final task - and the impact this news will have on his mother. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Disappointed ! ! !..
15 November 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Yes friends I am truly disappointed by the way people judge the movies I had once heard someone say "Good movies wont be made until we have good audience" and I firmly believe in the saying.I was at the multiplex today and could not digest the fact that I had only 3 shows for a movie like dasvidanya whereas 10-15 shows for a crap movie like Dostana.. and in light of current situation I don't see this movie to survive unless there is a strong word of mouth publicity.

I personally liked the movie very much along with my friends,the movie had its share of sad and happy moments and this was one of those movies which you do not want to end but unfortunately they have to at some-point.

Sadly there weren't many audience in the auditorium- but no regrets. Its better to be in a bunch of quality people then to be in the dumb crowd.

Thumbs up for all the cast and direction and hopefully we will see more of the team coming soon..
