PEN Movies, Dhiraj Motion Pictures Pvt. Ltd., Focus Motion Pictures and Deepak Tijori Films’ Do Lafzon Ki Kahani (UA) is a love story.
Suraj (Randeep Hooda) is a professional boxer who lives in Kuala Lumpur. Suraj has spent jail time for the death of a person he was chasing. He has now given up boxing. His boss, Shrikant (Anil George), for whom he used to play the sport, feels let down by Suraj as the latter had wronged him.
Suraj meets Jenny (Kajal Aggarwal) and the two become friendly. Jenny is blind. Friendship soon turns into love and the two decide to spend the rest of their lives together. They both love one another a lot. Jenny shifts into a new home with Suraj.
One day, Jenny tells Suraj how she had lost her eyesight in a car accident. The same accident had claimed her parents’ lives too. To his horror, Suraj realises that although indirectly, he was probably responsible for that car accident. He is ridden by guilt but can’t come to tell Jenny about how he was indirectly responsible for her plight.
Suraj takes Jenny to the doctor who says that her eyesight could be restored through surgery but that would have to be done within a month or so. Since the cornea would need to be imported from the USA, the surgery would require a lot of money.
Suraj takes to boxing once again. After a few days, he even participates in an illegal boxing match, agreeing to lose it, so that the one hosting him gives him advance money for Jenny’s eye surgery. Suraj leaves Jenny in the hospital for the surgery after depositing the funds, and goes to participate in the illegal boxing. Losing the match in such events usually means death but Suraj is prepared for it. Before leaving, Suraj is forced to destroy all evidence of his identity. As a result, Jenny would never know who Suraj is.
Does Suraj lose the boxing tournament? Does he die? Or does he remain alive? Is Jenny’s surgery successful? Does she get back her eyesight? Do Suraj and Jenny meet? If so, how?
The film is a remake of Korean film Always.
Girish Dhamija’s script is dull and dated. The story is of the kind one saw in films made in the 1970s and 1980s. The screenplay also offers no novelty whatsoever. Resultantly, the drama becomes quite predictable and fails to excite the audience in any way. The climax looks contrived and stretched. It also fails to evoke the desired emotions. In fact, the entire film fails to emotionally move the viewer. Girish Dhamija’s dialogues are commonplace.
Randeep Hooda does quite well but he is unable to do cent per cent justice to the romantic portions. Kajal Aggarwal is natural and impresses with a free performance. Mamik has his moments as Omi. Dhiraj Shetty is quite good in the role of Sikandar. Anil George is ordinary as Shrikant. Yuri Suri is menacing enough as Gavin. Snehal Kulshreshtha and the others lend adequate support.
Deepak Tijori’s direction, like the script, is devoid of freshness. His narrative style is ordinary. Music is quite melodious. ‘Jeena sikha diya’ (composed by Babli Haque and penned by Sandeep Nath) is an excellent song. The other songs (music by Amaal Malik, Ankit Tiwari, Arjuna Harjai and Dr. Zeus) are fair. Lyrics (Sandeep Nath, Manoj Muntashir, Kumaar and Raj Ranjodh) are good. Raju Singh’s background music is routine. Mohana Krishna’s cinematography is average. Action and stunts (by Ronnie Keejiak Liang, Vicky Dahiya and Mahesh Arya) are mass-appealing. Kumar Sagar’s production designing is ordinary. Ballu Saluja’s editing should’ve been crisper.
On the whole, Do Lafzon Ki Kaha ni is a dull fare with bleak chances at the box-office.
