Do Lafzon Ki Kahani – Movie Review – Do Lafzon Ki Kahani is a movie which deals with the love story of Suraj (wonderfully played by Randeep Hooda), a martial art wrestler and Jenny (Kajal Agarwal) who is a visually challenged working woman. The story is set in the exotic locales of Malaysia and the movie is an official adaptation of “Always”, a 2011 North Korean movie. (Korean movies seem to become favourites with Indian directors).

Do Lafzon Ki Kahani (2016) Review – What Worked, and What Did Not
While director Deepak Tijori has tried to give romance an old school touch, he is unable to sustain the viewer’s interest, which keeps flagging as the movie progresses.
For example, there are many clichés which force the audience’s interest to wander and Tijori, slowly but surely loses his grip around the plot. The contrasting characters of the lead pair are way too common like the brooding hero v/s the chirpy heroine or her optimism v/s his negativity and these clichés are enough to switch off the viewer’s attention.
The movie takes way too much time to tell us about Suraj & Jenny’s respective background and once that is done, there is simply nothing to look forward to.
The only bright spot in this otherwise sluggish storyline is Randeep’s transformation from a soft-spoken lover to a tough killing machine, in the wrestling arena. Unfortunately, this “bright” spot isn’t enough to light up the dull and drab premise of the movie.
Do Lafzon Ki Kahani (2016) Review – Randeep Hooda Once Again Shines
For a powerful actor like Randeep Hooda, this role is tailor-made and he does a great job of playing a tough, quiet character. His awesome physique is a treat to watch and he definitely has his moments to display his acting skills. Randeep has treated his character well and has underplayed it when needed. We only wish he had got himself a better deal as far as the plot of the movie is concerned, to match his acting prowess.
In comparison, Kajal’s Jenny is a weak character and does not allow her to do much. Her character is way too bubbly to suit the overall ambiance of the movie and gives us a feeling of forced happiness. More importantly, there isn’t enough meat to bite in for the relationship the lead characters share, thus leading to detachment and disinterest.
The film has been provided with some decent music and composer-crooner Ankit Tiwari has managed to create foot-tapping and lilting music. Guess this would have been a mandate, considering the film was marketed as a romantic musical and the music makers have certainly lived up to it. The songs provide some relief is this otherwise slow moving film and thus, earn a few brownie points for itself.
Do Lafzon Ki Kahani would have been a better film if the makers had concentrated a bit more on strengthening the thin storyline, just as Randeep Hooda did, to create a drool-worthy physique.
