Storyline

Inspired by the folk tales passed on from one generation to another, 'Dus Tola' is a simply told story of victory of goodness over greed. The story is set in Sonapur, a quaint little town that has its share of eccentrics. Shankar (Manoj Bajpayee), the local goldsmith, is head-over-heels in love with his neighbor's daughter Suvarnalata (Aarti Chhabria) much to the chagrin of her father Daya Shastri (Dilip Prabahvalkar). Shastri is bent upon finding her a suitable groom from Dubai and cover her with gold at the wedding, which will help him climb up the social ladder. Armed with nothing but a heart of pure gold, Shankar sets out to overcome the obstacles of devious plots and heartache. 'Dus Tola', a slice-of-life tale which mirrors our society, and is light-hearted in its narrative. Written by NR2

Very good entertainer
24 December 2011 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

First i want to tell that i have never written a review for a movie. But after watching Dus Tola when i come to IMDb to rate this real good movie and found that there was not a single review for this flick i decided to write.

This is a village oriented movie with a very good plot, good acting and great direction. I was totally engaged in the movie and was fully captured by the situation. The story of the movie as the title says "Dus Tola" revolves around a "har/Mangal Sutere" of Ten tolas. It starts delightfully and gradually makes it serious as the story goes on(like most of stories of this type). In the movie there are two very hilarious situations which mill make you laugh actually i think not just a laugh but will make you laugh loudly.

In short this is a good family movie for good time pass and will surely provide you good entertainment.
