Kishu volunteers, she initially rejects him, but relents when he impresses her with his knowledge of Devi Maa Durga. Hoping to woo and win her heart, he is in for nothing but disappointment when he sees her in the arms of her Caucasian boyfriend, Mike. Then she is dramatically abducted and held for a ransom of Rs.1.50 Crores by unknown persons. Watch what impact this incident has on the local police as well as on Kishu and Mike.

A refreshing movie with real life characters!
16 October 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Jo Dooba So Paar is a story of Kesu, a young boy with oodles of confidence, as he learns to deal with falling in love and a father demanding that his out-of-school son becomes a truck driver just like him. Jo Dooba So Paar (JDSP) takes you to a small city, this one is set in Bihar, where in the absence of boy meets girl opportunities, love is often one sided. Kesu does not meekly live it down, no young boy does. With not a care in the world, our young hero goes all out to get the attention of his lady love Sapna. Even to the extent of working with his friends to free Sapna from her kidnappers. But not before he is heart broken by learning of Sapna's "firangi" boy friend. Running parallel is the story of Tokan, the constable who submerges his frustration, a job full of compromises and an unexpressed love for Gulabo, in booze every night. Through the movie, silent violence lurks while life carries on. To surface when ignited like when Kesu's father takes out a country made pistol to threaten his son out his Sapna chasing ways. But Kesu is undeterred, wants to fly just like the birds across the sky The editing seems too tight and at places the viewer is left to connect the dots. Like Tokan and Gulabo's love story is almost unstated. It is very evident but hardly spoken about. Similarly while search for Sapna at Bodh Gaya, Kesu and his friends appear to stumble upon the kidnappers without much effort. On the whole, JDSP is a joy to watch. No histrionics here. No masala here. Just solid good entertainment about the "majik" of love. Tokan is a class act by Vinay Pathak. Kesu's lovable chutzpah shines through the film and will remain with you long after you leave the theatre.
