Undoubtedly, the story of the film is complex, but it holds your attention till the end. Anurag Kashyap has added an element of thrill from the very first shot. Also, the whole story hardly revolves around four-five characters, so these characters keep your interest continuously. The film follows the pattern of a time travel romantic thriller, which is not as deep as Anurag’s other films, but it is multi-layered. The good thing is that some scenes have a good dose of humor to keep the film balanced. Talking about the lack of the film, there are many plots that are happening simultaneously, there are many twists and turns, which is why it seems high on an emotional level.
Technically the film is above average. Arti Bajaj’s meticulous editing makes the story interesting, but the length of the film could have been shortened. The length of the film is of great importance for thrillers. Along with this, another aspect that seems weak is the songs of the film. There are two songs in the film which do not add much to the story. The basic rating given by the Shore Police is good. The film’s production design is also eye-catching, so it deserves a mention.
What better if a good story gets the support of good actors. In this film, Taapsee Pannu seems to have completely settled into her character. The seriousness and absent-mindedness that her complex character needed here, the actress brought it well. There is an ambiguity in his gestures regarding what is happening around him. At the same time, Pavail Gulati attracts attention with his precise performance in the role of a police inspector. Rahul Bhatt and Shashwat Chatterjee have done a commendable job in their respective characters.
Films like Dobara are rarely made in Bollywood. Perhaps also because such experimental films can be risky from a box office point of view. But there is no doubt that this suspense thriller from Anurag Kashyap is a must watch. Its story and characters are quite interesting which will keep you occupied for 2 hours. 3.5 stars for ‘Dobaara’ from Filmbeat.
