Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare
Storyline: Set in a newly developing industrial area on the outskirts of New Delhi, Dolly Kitty aur Woh Chamakte Sitare, chronicles the quiet transgression of two cousins (women), who through their complicated love- hate equation, they both enable each other to find freedom.
Director Alankrita Shrivastava’s film makes a strong point on gender roles, societal norms and moral judgments. As Dolly and Kajal’s lives take them through different circumstances, they are first out to judge each other’s life’s choices, but eventually, they realise they are not very different. Deep down, as women they are looking for the same things, craving the same freedom. Although on the flipside the film’s narrative packs in too many angles and sub-texts and at times, leaves some threads underdeveloped. Also, some of the narrative shifts feel too abrupt. But overall, ‘Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare’ drives home the message that it sets out to give.
The performances are overall good. Konkona Sen Sharma as Mrs.Yadav or Dolly is superlative as her character moves through entire film, exploring her relationship with her husband, her son Pappu and her mother. Bhumi Pednekar also performs at a different level. Amol Parasher stands out as the sweet delivery boy, Osmaan. Vikrant Massey as Kajal’s lover, Pradeep, has done well, as Aamir Bashir as Dolly’s disgruntled husband, Amit.
Director has tried in ‘Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare’ to bring out the different shades to womanhood through its narrative and pushes one to be who they want to be.
