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)

The Simplest Good bye ever!!!!
17 November 2008 | by See all my reviews

Finally Comes a movie, which reminds us the beauty of simplicity. A forgotten way of life, where we were relaxed, and enjoyed the life; rather than running after the things to acquire materialistic pleasure.

Dasvidaniya, is I must say the simplest goodbye ever. Its a movie about a guy who is suffering from Stomach Cancer and is about to die in next 3 months. So this is the story of those months, where he takes the control of his life, and decides to correct out his mistakes, and enjoy the pleasures, which he totally ignored till this point of time.

A simple story, and also directed very simply, with not a single character going overboard to portray his/her emotions. All the characters in this movie have done great job, except from Neha Dhupia, she was not very comfortable playing the role of a next door girl.

Vinay Pathak steals the show, with his subtle portrayal of the emotions of a dying man. He has kept it simple and stupid. The movies makes you laugh a lot, and also sometimes makes you cry. The songs "Mumma" and "Alvida" sung by "kailash kher" are also very apt to the story.

The movie fill you with joy, but it has its share of drawback, if only you would like to call it a drawback. Dasvidaniya is too simple to effect you, or to impact you. It definitely touches you, but it does not go inside you. As soon as you are out of the theater, it will be out of your system.

So watch this movie with simple expectations, and enjoy this simplest goodbye ever!!!
