Hindi Movie- Dus Kahaniyaan

Bollywood 18/01/2008

November saw the release of one of the most interesting concepts dealt with this season by director Sanjay Gupta. Dus Kahaniyan is a film that deals with ten short films packaged into one whole giving the audience a new movie-going experience. Although attempts to make such films have been done before, where I believe Dus Kahaniyan scores is that the individual films do not have any contact or relation with each other. So there are ten different stories directed by six different directors.

Although it is impossible to make the audience like all the stories, but the diversity of the stories has enabled the film to be liked among wider audiences. The titles of the films are as follows – Gubbare, Zahir, Rise n Fall, Matrimony and Strangers in the Night by Sanjay Gupta, High on the Highway by Hansal Mehta, Puranmaasi by Meghna Gulzar, Sex On the Beach by Apoorva Lakhia, Rice Plate by Rohit Roy and Lovedale by Jasmeet Dhodi.

The stories are mostly about ordinary characters in extraordinary circumstances and the appeal of the film lies in the novelty of the concept. The films in general talk about how life is small and why we should respect different religions. The film or rather some of the short films have amazing performances by Amrita Singh, Nana Patekar, Shabana Azmi, Mandira Bedi, Jimmy Shergill, Manoj Bajpai and Dia Mirza. Although the performances of others like Sanjay Dutt, are nothing out of the books, the film is definitely worth a watch as you get to watch ten different short films at a stretch. Now would you not want to experience that?
