Do Aur Do Pyaar is a story about a married couple, Kavya (Vidya Balan) and Ani (Pratik Gandhi), who live in Mumbai. The duo eloped and have been married for 12 years. However, for the past few years, the couple only physically lives together and have been separated emotionally and mentally. So they seek love outside. But a visit to Kavya’s hometown in Ooty brings back all their memories of how madly they were in love. Will Kavya and Ani reconcile as they realise what they felt for each other was deep, or will they walk away separately with the current people they’re dating?

Do Aur Do Pyaar Movie Review: Script Analysis

Shirsha Guha Thakurta’s Do Aur Do Pyaar starts with first showing us Kavya and her lover Vikram and Ani and his girlfriend Nora sharing some cute and romantic moments together. The screen radiates pure joy. However, when the sequence ends and Kavya and Ani come in the same frame, we can sense the numb and gloomy aura. The two show no emotion and go around and about in the house like two robots.

The story is penned by Suprotim Sengupta, Amrita Bagchi and Eisha Chopra. The trio has treated us with one of the best stories of love in Hindi cinemas, where we see what it looks like when a couple is emotionally distant before it physically happens. The movie rightly explains what the phrase ‘It’s not where you are, it’s who you’re with’ means. When Kavya and Ani attend a family member’s funeral in Ooty, there’s a beautiful shift in the narrative that suddenly becomes full of life and laughter.

It’s hilarious how, during the sad occasion, Kavya and Ani find their happiness. The beauty of the scenes is elevated due to how natural the chemistry is, the rawness in the emotions and the subtle humour that cuts the growing tension. However, romantic love is not the only topic the movie touches upon. Kavya and her father’s equation is also highlighted, bringing more intensity to the story. If someone asks me what the best portrayal of parental “tough love” is, I would suggest several moments from this movie as one of the recommendations.

The interval comes at one of the most poignant moments in the film, and you’re left wondering how the new twist in the tale will affect the lives of these four people. The second half is a pleasure to watch for a while until the reality starts sinking in. Kavya and Ani had all the sweet talks, but they never had an honest conversation about what went wrong in their marriage. So when the time comes to get real, the relationships start crumbling more and become messier. The initial dead silence between the duo turns into a painful noise. You realise, the two never lacked love for each other. The issue has always been showing up and communicating the affection, showing love through their actions!

We often read quotes about how open discussions are essential to resolve relationship misunderstandings or conflicts. The importance of effective communication is what is lacking in many relationships and even friendships. The movie rightly shows what damage it could do if people choose silence over honesty about what’s truly in their hearts.

The movie has some excellent dialogues that leave you thinking and chuckling at the irony of love, life and marriage. Lines like “married people don’t have s*x” or “sometimes love is not enough” have a deeper meaning in the movie’s context. Any film involving relationships between people is sure to captivate moviegoers. Watching fictional characters make decisions that they might or might not have been right about, expose vulnerabilities that people hide, and generally act like real people brings me so much excitement, satisfaction, and validation.

Do Aur Do Pyaar Movie Review: Star Performance

Playing characters like Kavya comes naturally to Vidya Balan. As we witness her navigate her emotions, she consistently delivers an outstanding performance. The actress has excellent comic timing, making you laugh often with her dialogues and reactions. The incredible acting skills of Pratik Gandhi were on full display in his latest film. This year, with Madgaon Express, he showed a side of him that one wouldn’t have imagined after the serious performance in Scam 1992. However, Pratik brilliantly portrays Ani, capturing the character’s predicament through his quietness and occasional silliness. Vidya and Pratik look mesmerising on screen when they’re in love with each other, and their crackling chemistry is truly winsome.

Sendhil Ramamurthy and Ileana D’Cruz are supporting characters in the movie and in Kavya and Ani’s lives. Both actors deliver good performances throughout.

Do Aur Do Pyaar Trailer Review: Vidya Balan & Pratik Gandhi Promise A Hilarious Bhool Bhulaiyaa Of Extramarital Affairs PS. The Comedy We Might Need!
Do Aur Do Pyaar Trailer Out – Promises A Hilarious Classic Comedy ( Photo Credit – IMDb )

We are living in a world that is as random as an uninvited guest and as quick as an India to Dubai travel. So are our relationships with the changing world; all of us, at some point, are confused, random, and fast. We meet people; we develop feelings for them, we fall in love, we fall out of love, and more confusions follow. Do Aur Do Pyaar seems to summarize the modern-day relationship problems in a jiffy.

Director Sheersha Guha Thakurta, however, tries to tackle modern-day relationship issues in a funny and hilarious manner with a proper light-hearted rom-com, which is just what we could need this summer.

Starring Vidya Balan and Pratik Gandhi and featuring Ileana D’Cruz & Senthil Ramamurthy, Do Aur Do Pyaar is a classic comedy built from confusion. The plot is simple and is well highlighted in the trailer itself. A couple, played by Vidya and Pratik, are falling out of love, and their marriage is on the verge of the final stage of separation.

Wait a second. Let us decode this again. Vidya and Pratik play a married couple who are cheating on each other with their respective partners. Pratik is in love with Ileana, and Vidya is in love with Senthil. However, this simple equation gets complicated over time.

Can you love two people at a time? Can you fall in love with your spouse after falling out of love? Are separations hard? Are extramarital affairs easy? Where is the moral line? Do these questions seem too heavy to decode? Well, the Do Aur Do Pyaar trailer promises that director Shirsha Guha Thakurta has tried finding answers to this relationship quiz in a rather funny way!

The trailer has not compromised with its pace by adding any music or glimpses to the songs. However, a song from the film is already ruling my playlist – Tu Hai Kahan. A beautiful The Local Train meets Lucky Ali collaboration that was much needed in today’s musically dry era.

The 2-minute 19-second trailer sets the tone right for the film as a Bhool Bhulaiyaa of emotions and relationships where an estranged couple is confused between feelings for their respective spouses and the alleged affair. Will the hell break loose when one of them expects a child out of the marriage?

The trailer promises hope for a classic comedy in a rom-com, something Bollywood has not seen for ages. No one in the trailer looks out of their place despite being mismatched otherwise. Looking forward to a fun film on April 19!

Here’s the trailer of the film.
