Storyline

Delhi-based math teacher Santosh Duggal drives a scooter and lives in a small apartment along with his wife, Kusum; a collegian daughter, Payal; and a school-going son, Sandeep. He also moonlights with a tutoring center called Chatwal Coaching Class in order to make ends meet. Hoping to pacify his family with his income-tax refund, he will instead be compelled to give up its entire amount after his Meerut-based sister Urmi invites them over to a wedding. He borrows a car from a neighbor, Farooqui, and, after a rather dramatic trip, is forced to compensate him as the car gets damaged. Unable to bear taunts that he cannot afford a car, he decides to buy one. It is this decision that will force Payal to seek employment in a call center. Sandeep will confess that he has been gambling, which leaves Santosh with no alternative but to consider accepting bribes from students and risk being exposed on live TV.

Small budget movie but a great and excellent concept.
14 October 2012 | by ompaldagar6See all my reviews

Do Dooni Char is one small episode portraying a middle-class Delhi family struggling through their financial limitations. It is a humorous and enjoyable movie throughout but is more impressive for its authenticity and realistic feel more than the story itself. The story is where this exceptionally good film scores. The spirit of Delhi and its middle-class families ha been wonderfully captured. The casts,sets and the costumes are all very simple and thus create an enchanting sense of everyday realism which is very missing in Hindi films. The film has its moments and it actually deals with problems not usually dealt with in Indian movies, such as the modest salaries professional teachers get paid for their efforts and how this affects their life.The pairing of Neetu and Rishi Kapoor adds to the advantage of the movie and makes it much more better.Its great to see both of them on screen together after decades. The story deals with the life of Santosh Duggal,played by Rishi Kapoor. He is forced to use a scooter and at some point this starts saddening him and his family.The movie is also about the dream of the family to own a car.A lovely way of conveying a concept, and it is generally well done.The biggest plus point is the casting, particularly of Rishi Kapoor, who delivers an excellent performance. Neetu Singh is very good, especially considering the fact that she had not acted for decades. Do Dooni Chaar is a great film that relates to the life of many Indian middle class families and reminds of our childhood days.A real entertainer for me.
