After a surprising hit Swamy Ra Ra, Sudheer Varma has teamed up with Naga Chaitanya and Kriti Sanon, for another con film, Dohchay. Let us see how far the director has succeeded to come out of the most common second film jinx.
More than the story, the film depends largely on the treatment
of the film. Dohchay is yet another crime comedy or a con
film. Naga Chaitanya (Chandu) involves in the con job and Kriti
Sanon (Meera) is a Medical Student. The circumstances that led him
to become so forms the crux of the story.
Naga Chaitanya was seen as a con man and sported a super stylish
look like never before. He has improved a lot in the dialogue
delivery and he has been showcasing a constant growth in his acting
skills from movie to movie. Chay has put in his great efforts in
the dance numbers and one must appreciate the determined attempt.
The special training he has gone through for the action sequences
was quite evident on screen.
Kriti Sanon has got a role with substance and this film shall
give her a break in Telugu industry. Fresh and funny love track
between the lead pair provided great scope for her to prove her
mettle. Rao Ramesh, Ravi Babu were apt for their roles. Posani and
Saptagiri managed to fill in the laughs while Brahmi steals the
show as Bullet Babu with his unusual timing.
Director Sudheer Varma seems somewhere stuck with his first film
and unable to deliver a fresh subject. The film would have made
more impact if it was promoted as a sequel to his first film
Swamy Ra Ra.
The screen play of the film falls flat in many parts and turns
boring though the it has an ideal run time of 138 minutes. Sunny M
R failed to engage audience with his tunes while he was brilliant
with the background score. Cinematography by Richard Prasad takes
Looks like Sudheer Varma is also stuck with the second film
jinx. Lost in the middle of no where, he mixed up his super hit
film Swamy Ra Ra into Dohchay and has lend the
support of Brahmi to save the film. Court scene in the climax
stands as the only good scene in the second half. If you don't mind
some lags and if you are lover of con films, you can give it a try
for the comedy and action episodes.
