K.C. Productions’ Tutiya Dil (UA) is the story of Rhea Kapoor (Suzanna Mukherjee) who falls in love with her new boss, Karan Oberoi (Nikhil Sabharwal). However, she soon realises that Karan is two-timing her. She walks out on him but is unable to forget him. She is even ready to forgive him when he makes the first move after the breakup, but he once again lets her down rather badly.
After walking out on Karan, Rhea begins to stay in the house of Vishal Khanna (Sidhant Kapur), a colleague, who understands her predicament and sympathises with her. Vishal is living in with his girlfriend but still makes place for Rhea in his house because he cares for her.
After her bad experience in love, Rhea likens men to turkeys, a species of birds which are always on the hunt for new hens to mate with. She is convinced, men can never be faithful and always have sex on their minds. Rhea also has to consult a shrink, Dr. Prayag (Naveen Kaushik), such is her condition after the heartbreak.
Tutiya Dil Review: Script Analysis
Amit Khanna’s story and screenplay are interesting but only upto a point because the entire track of likening men to turkeys gets boring and irri- tating after a while. Also, Karan Oberoi’s fickle-mindedness comes like a shock because there is no build-up to it. All in all, the story and screenplay are unable to keep the audience engrossed after a point of time. Prabal Punjabi’s dialogues try to depend too much on the bold lines to impress. But girls mouthing the bold dialogues and supplementing them with crude gestures doesn’t leave a very good taste in the mouth.
Tutiya Dil Review: Star Performances
Suzanna Mukherjee is a natural actress and does well for her debut performance. She looks fair. Sidhant Kapur looks quite handsome and performs ably. Nikhil Sabharwal gives a good account of himself. Iris Maity is natural as Anuradha Banerjee, a friend of Rhea. Jyoti Bhardwaj leaves her mark as Ramona Pahuja. Naveen Kaushik is quite nice as Dr. Prayag. Ankit Gupta makes his presence felt as Nalinder Yadav. Angel Farmahan (as Natasha), Darpan Mallik (as Shekhar), Devika Raizada (as Sania), Meena Bhagat (as the landlady), Caroline Oberoi, Rafi, Prabhakar Ran- jan Sinha and Deepika Godha provide the necessary support.
Tutiya Dil Review: Direction & Music
Amit Khanna’s direction is fair, given that his script has a lot of limitations. Music (Gulraj Singh) is quite nice but the songs haven’t become too popular because of which their impact in the film is reduced. Lyrics (Manoj Yadav) are alright. Song picturisations are dull. Shweta Chanda’s cinematography is okay. Editing, by Archit D. Rastogi, is alright.
Tutiya Dil Review: Komal Nahta’s Verdict
On the whole, Tutiya Dil is too flimsy and limited to really do anything at the box-office. It will go largely unnoticed.
