Crazy world... insane thoughts
It's like the title says...

The DOR of our lives

Labels:
"Dor"
That's hindi for string.
A string which when strung, connects and binds.

It's also the name of a film that I was fortunate to watch this weekend.
Directed by Nagesh Kukonoor (Hyderabad Blues, Rockford) and starring Ayesha Takia, Gul Panag and Shreyas Talpade - I thought it'd be a bore. This despite Avinash's claims to the opposite.

It is quite a film and everything fits in quite effortlessly.
Ayesha is no longer the bimbette of her earlier films; Gul is a revelation and Shreyas proves that Iqbal, his first film wasn't a fluke.

The story revolves around 2 young couples - from different worlds. They lead two seemingly different strings of life. Then the weaves of time bring these 2 threads together to create a situation that is difficult to describe. One man is dead. The other is accused of the crime. His wife must find the widow and seek her forgiveness which will spare him the capital punishment. It's a complex situtation.

How does one approach the bereaved widow for forgiveness for the slayer?
How does one let go of the pain and the anger and do the right thing?
What is the right thing?
Does a widow lead the life that is chosen for her - or does she do it her way?

It's not just about doing one's own thing. It's about responsibility for our actions as well.

This movie is definitely worth a watch!!
