What’s Good: Randeep Hooda’s ability to hold your attention in a film one can easily give up on. He is the only amazing thing in this film.
What’s Bad: A tepid script makes this love story nearly unwatchable. It is difficult not to doze off in this film.
Loo Break: Yes! Plenty of them.
Watch or Not?: Do Lafzon Ki Kahani is easily passable. The romantic drama is so cliched that it will make you cringe.
The film revolves around Suraj (Radeep Hooda), a former mixed martial arts player with a dark past. After leaving the sport, he is doing odd jobs to earn money for settling some old debts.
The brooding young man soon meets Jenny Mathias (Kajal Aggarwal) in a chance meeting and the two seem to hit it off quite well. Jenny is visually impaired but extremely chirpy and takes life head on.
The two fall in love and Suraj soon realises that his dark past is connected with Jenny in a manner that he never imagined. Guilt-ridden Suraj decides to get Jenny operated so that she can regain her eyesight.
Will Suraj be successful in helping Jenny? What will Suraj do in exchange for Jenny’s healthy future?
Do Lafzon Ki Kahani Review: Script Analysis
Romantic drama is one of the most popular genres when it comes to cinema goers. Their basic expectations from a love story include, a good chemistry, a palatable love angle and great music to complement the setting.
Unfortunately, even after adapting Do Lafzon Ki Kahani from the Korean film, Always, the writers fail to make it watchable.
Throwing literally every Bollywood cliche there is, the film puts you off quite early on.
Elements like, the girl getting ‘Gajar Ka Halwa’ for an uncle she is acquainted with, having a boss who’s harassing her at work, the brooding hero angle and of course Jenny’s character being irritatingly chirpy are all done to death when it comes Bollywood films.
One of the most pathetic scenes in the film is where Suraj beats up Jenny’s boss for attempting to rape her and Jenny is seen getting angry at Suraj, her character says, ‘There is no place where a single girl is safe and a girl has to put up with such things to survive in a job’. Believe me, that’s one of the most ridiculous things I’ve heard.
Not to mention, the film also has its own set of similarities to Deepika Padukone’s Lafangey Parindey.
Do Lafzon Ki Kahani Review: Star Performance
Randeep Hooda makes any role watchable thanks to his acting skills. The scenes where he works out are enough for the ladies to swoon over. His act of a mix martial arts player is spot on and he pulls off the action sequences extremely well. Hooda’s body language as a guy with a disturbed past and his quite glances are really good.
Kajal Aggarwal seems to have put in her best efforts but thanks to the way her character is written, she comes off extremely irritating. The peppy girl act goes slightly overboard, nonetheless, she looks pretty in almost every frame of the film.
Mamik Singh, who is popular for his role in Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar is seen in a supporting role in the film as Randeep’s trainer. He does a decent job.
