Dasvidaniya is a movie, which reminds us the beauty of simplicity.
A forgotten way of life, where we were relaxed, and enjoyed the life; rather than running after the things to acquire materialistic pleasure.
Great job Director, crew and last but not least Vinay Pathak.
I seriously feel the movie to be strong contender for National award for terribly good performance overall.
Meet Amar Koul (Vinay Pathak) is a typical nice guy living in Mumbai, India.
He has never smoked, gotten drunk, or been with a woman.
He is a very organized person and makes a to-do list every morning, things like shopping for grocery, toiletries, battery for his mother's hearing aid, etc.
He works hard as accounts manager at a pharmaceutical company in Mumbai and lives with his mother.
One fine day he goes to a doctor's appointment where is informed of the disease that afflicts him.
Amar is completely devastated and does not know what to do.
He comes to terms with the disease and realizes that he has less than few months to live.
Here comes his other form - a vision of what he would like to be - and then he makes one list of things that he would like to do before he dies. That is what he sets out to do, starting with buying a brand new car, going abroad, meeting with the love of his life to whom he could never express it, etc.
Life takes him through several peaks and troughs and finally he achieves all the ten things in his list.
In my opinion this should have been a super hit movie but I guess Indian audiences are not mature enough to watch a serious drama flick such as Dasvidaniya.
The performances by Vinay Pathak, and
Rajat Kapoor, are stellar.
Neha Dhupia plays Neha Banot the childhood love of Amar.
I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone and everyone who like a serious emotional drama about how to lead life while suffering from Cancer.
It is an inspirational movie.
Watch it, it is free on youtube and you will not regret it.
