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

Running Strong On A Single Factor. Plot Factor. ♦ 70%
11 September 2013 | by (Economic Capital Of India) – See all my reviews

It does give you a feeling of a Television soap, but I am mesmerized by the story previously seen in the Malayalam hit Poochakkoru Mookkuthi (1984).

Taking romance to the next level by showing the hidden truth behind the relationships in villages, Dus Tola comes out as a sarcastic take on the lives of people of a village. It also gives the human nature a new definition in celluloid. Other than an abnormal casting, everything works for the movie. It does lack humor but compensates it with songs & enough melodrama. 7.0 out of 10 for a fine entertainer.

The climax is a sure-shot winner.

BOTTOM LINE: Recommended!

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES

Profanity/Sex/Nudity: No | Vulgarity: Very Mild | Violence: Mild | Gore/Smoking: No | Alcohol: Mediocre
