‘Doo’ as the title suggests the film is about lovers parting ways for no reasons – but their difference of opinions, egos and so on. Part and Parcel of Love stories, isn’t? Nothing new to speak about ‘Doo’ as the story proceeds in predictable way. The basic plot of the film is about lovers in joyful restrain breaking up due to their egoistic clashes. Let’s not waste our times glimpsing upon what they like and what not? So silly to mark upon and so are their tiffs.
The lead pairs (Sanjay and Nakshatra) know each other from their schooldays. Though she doesn’t accept his love in School, years later they profess their love for each other. But sweet dreams soon become a nightmare as they start experiencing a great depth of differences in each and every aspect.
‘I Love Blue, You love Black’, ‘I don’t like temples, but beaches’, ‘I don’t like puppies’ – So and so. Oops! As it becomes unbearable for both the lad and missy, they decide to part ways. This forms the opening sequence followed by a flashback and getting back to the present time during intermission. An unwanted arrival of a new girl results in no twists and the complete second half is flimsy and ends on a dull note.
When audiences are readily predicting each and every forthcoming sequence, what’s there to look upon as a matter of interest? It’s too hard to sit back relaxed and watch the same old stuffs repeated over and again. Moreover, the characters remain over-talkative. Being a romantic drama, the director should have tried laying emphasis to the emotional quotients.
But there are some interesting factors in the film that include the accident of a stranger that results in the meeting of two characters. The dialogues are given importance that hits straight to the senses of present gen-audiences.
Sanjay and Nakshatra are good choices and the casting is perfect. They’re not over-glamorous, but look realistic in their appearances and casual gestures as well. Why does the director want to add unwanted things in the film, which becomes a sort of distraction? Jeeva and Jagan trying to evoke laughter through their lines are not worthy of praises.
‘Doo Da’ is a treat for the mass audiences while ‘Oru Naal Vidumurai’ has a good composition. But the song ‘Nadhiyile’ is wasted with an improper sequencing.
