Samir Karnik completes his trilogy. Nanhe Jaisalmer was about dreams, Heroes was about pride and Vaada Raha is about hope. The commonality in all three films, besides Bobby Deol and child star Dwij Yadav, is the emotional quotient.
Vaada Raha, inspired by a Russian fable, is about the bond between two patients - a grown up man and a kid, respectively. An interesting thought, nonetheless. But there's a hitch. The writing isn't too convincing and what actually dilutes the effort is that it tends to stagnate at places. More on that later!
What does stand tall in Vaada Raha is Bobby Deol's super performance. This is his most accomplished work to date! Duke's [Bobby Deol] life can be called gratifying. Professionally, he is a successful doctor, personally an ardent lover and parent to a doting dog. Duke loves Nalini [Kangana Ranaut] and they plan to marry soon.
