A Nagesh Kukunoor film needs no introduction. Associated with qualitative cinema over the years, the one thing that binds all Kukunoor films is the emphasis on content. In Dor, his new outing, the efficient storyteller tells the story of two women, reportedly based on a real-life incident.
If IQBAL, his last effort, looked at the sport and the politics that came with it as also the story of an underdog who aspires to play cricket on the national level, Kukunoor changes tracks in Dor. Sensitively handled with bravura performances from the entire cast, this one's a triumph for everyone associated with it.
